B/ble Evanle/istic Temple By Elaine Bartlett A man may go to heaven without health, without wealth, without fame, without a great name, without learning, without culture, without friends, without ten thousand other things, but he can never go to heaven without Christi The cmtless multitude on high, that tune their songs to Jesus' name, all merit of their own deny, and Jesus' worth alone proclaim. Firm on the ground of sovereign grace, they stand before Jehovah's throne; the only song in that blest place, is =Thou art worthy! Thou aloael" John 3:3, "Jesus answered and said unto him, verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be hem again, he cannot see the kingdom of GOd." We have a revival starting Sunday with John Duren. He will be here through Friday night. Sunday nights start at 7, other nights are 7:30.

First IJnltod Methodbt By Strum Rein The scriptures for Sunday, Jan. 24, will be Psalm 27, Isaiah 9:14, Matthew 4:12-23 and I Corinthians 1:10-18. The sermon title is "I Saw the Light." The finance committee and the mmtees will both meet Sunday afternoon at 4:30. All church leaders are reminded that the Local Church Leaders Workshop will be Saturdav, Jan. 23, at the First United Methodist in Stilltter. Also, the children's choir is again this Sunday at 3:45 p.m. "He w To" By Rev. Max Rudd Lost Creek & Eden Chapel A trip to any bookstore makes us realize that we live in a =how- to" world. Many of the bestsellers of today are in the domain of the =how-to." How to improve our self concept, how to improve our financial picture, how to improve our career opportunities, to name a few. Well, I have a =how-to" of my own that I have shared frequently in my church, and I would like to share it with you, too. And you don't even have to buy a book! In Ephesians 1:3, Paul writes, =Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places." That's my =how-m" advice! It's that simple. First, commit this simple sentence to memory. Then, when you face a difficult time or a bleak day, or just a bad mood, begin to recite this little sentence to yourself. If I am alone, I will even say it out loud. At first, you may not really be in the mood, or sense nch change, but I can tell you, if you will just keep it up a few times, you will be amazed at what a "pick-me-up" this thought can be. For me, this little sentence brings to mind God's blessings already given to me, and reminds me of God's care, it's hard not to feel blessed and full of praise. This realization may seem sim- plistic, but it is povrful enough to enlighten even the darkest situation. Before I recite it very many times, I will always be surprised by a smile creeping onto my face and a dra- matic improvement in my outlook on life. So, that's my free advice for the week. Just try it, you might be surprised. ii i wl II II I ii 11 llllll iiii ii Area Church News By La L, We opened with singing "O Worship the Lord." The scripture reading was Romans 8:38-39 by Dou8 Johnson. Prayer requests and unspoken prayer requests were acknowledged by raising of hands. It was our pleasure to have as our guest speaker college professor Dr. Jack Bynum. He began with a cheerful good morning and we replied with our cheerful good morningl Dr. Bynum had received a long distance call from his grandchil- dren sayin 8 "It came backl It came bacH" Just for a moment he won- dered what they were talking about, then it occurred to him. While spending vacation time with them, one of the best Christmas gifts he and their dad had given them was balloons filled with helium. Each balloon had a returnable attached with ribbon. The card told the ages of the children, 11 and 12, and a message that read =God bless you, have a Happy New Year." To their surprise one had traveled a few hundred miles and the children were so overjoyed they couldn't wait to call grandpa to tell him tbe postcard was returned. "A message of God's love, return to sender." There is a bible scripture in Ecclesiastes II:I, =Cast thy bread upon the waters, for thou shalt find it after many days." Dr. Bynum has written several books, his name signed to each one of them. He said he would rather have his name written in the book of life than all of those hooks be has authored. I too would like my name written in the book of lifel Wouldn't you? God's peace. Carney Assemtay of God By Pat Skaggs We had a very good Sunday School lesson on "Making Crucial Choices." The Golden Text was, =A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favor rather than silver and gold." Proverbs 22:1. The central truth was we should not allow anything to interfere with serving the Lord and the three main topics that were discussed were Seeking Eternal Life, a Tragic Choice and Blessings of Salvation. Christians are not immane to the influence that possessions can have on people. We read in I Timothy 6:10 that "the love of money is the root of all evil." It is not so important that we have a lot of money and nmterial possessions as it is that we should possess godliness. In Hebrews 13:5 it says that God will never leave us nor forsake us. God will take care of us, if we will only let Him. Let us not let earthly possessions interfere with our serving the God of our salvation. In church services we had a vtattng , gmneth Chmer, and hls wife from Bamsdall. Pastor Charter used as his text, Mark 6:45- 51 sad titled his message =The Fourth Watch of the Night." He brought out that Satan is always tryin8 to attack God's people and our dmml. We are to always be ! on watch for Satan's fury and call upon Christ for help and protection. God feels our pain and knows our troubles. He can keep us from Satan's harm. He is the only one who can really help us. Through His power and glory, we can overcome the spirit of the devil. God says He will be with us always. Let Him be your guide and strength to fight the powers of Satan. We must respond to Christ's will and obey his bidding, then He will help us in our times of trouble. Ftrst Baptist Church By Sundy Edwards Sanctity of Human Life Sunday is observed every year by Southern Baptist churches; this year the day was Sunday, Jan. 17. The message brought by Brother Larry Wilson was "The Abortion Question" and he read Psalm 139: 13-16. Dunng the message it was pointed out that the Bible speaks about modem day issues; an example is the abortion. What does the Bible say? We should submit our opinions to the Bible. Is that within the womb a human bein 8 or just tissue. Brother Wilson mentioned that when Virgin Mary visited her cousin Elizabeth and told her the news about Jesus being horn, Elizabeth's leapt for joy within the womb. In Psalms, it is written that God knows us even in the womb. In both services, Dianna Sweger san S "That's Him" and the adult choir sang "A New Name in Glory" at the 10:50 service. A video was show at the 6 p.m. service titled =Help, I'm Pregnant." Sponsored by the Sonthem Baptist Convention, the video informed us of Crisis Pregnancy Centers over the United States, about 2,200. There are two such centers in Oklahoma, one in Tulsa and one in Oklahoma City. Should the need arise for help counseling or how to help, a toll free number was given, 1-800- 962- 0851. Brother Wilson spoke on "Abor- tion...After the Fact" and used as his text Romans 3:23 and 1 John 1:9. Two questions were addressed: What do you do with one who's had an abortion? and How does one 8o on after having an abortion? The importance of relying utxm the Bible and using it for a guide was emphasized. Sunday, Jan. 24 is Baptist Men's Day in our church; Mr. Zion Baptist Church of Stillwater will be at our church on Jan. 31 at 6 p.m. Brother m Oscar Adams will be preaching and the Mt. Zion Choir will be bringing special music. If you need a place of worship, you are certainly invited to First Baptist Church, Perkins. peace ?;t "" - :* ' [ Obituary MARY JOSEPHINE WAITE CREAGER Services were held Wednesday, Jan. 20, 1993 at the Perkins Chris- tian Church for Mary Josephine Waite Creager, 90, Perkins, who died Jan. 17, 1993 at the Stillwater Nursing Home.
