Church News THE JOURNAL, Thursday, February 16, 2012 - C3 Eden Chapel United Methodist Church Welcome to Eden Chapel United Methodist Church a very unique experience in worship. We do Sundays a little different at Eden Chapel and we believe you will enjoy it as much as we do. We begin every Sunday morning with a very personal Communion Experience in our Prayer Chapel. Then we prepare for our Sunday Moming Worship which leads us into our Gathering Time; after that we are off to Sunday School to share our lives and experiences with each other. We have children, youth, adult 'and inter-generational groups, so we just know that we have one for you. Our Sundays are as follows: 9:00am Weekly Communion in the Prayer Chapel, 9:30am Worship in the Sanctuary, 10:30am Gathering in the Fellowship Hall, 11:00am Sunday School and Special Classes. This is the Last Sunday after Epiphany and Transfiguration Sunday. We will be gathering for the 9:30am for worship in the sanctuary. The scripture comes from the Old Testament Book of 2 Kings 2: 1-12 with the title of the sermon being "A Double Share of Your Spirit". If there is anything that God might give you; "Would it be a double share of the Spirit"? Talents are great! Skills are fantastic! Gifts are even better! But when the Spirit is upon us, these other things seem so small. Then how much better to have a double share of the Holy Spirit! Yes it is possible, and yes God can do it for you, you only need to be responsive to receiving and then use it as God has planned! Please remember you are always welcome to come and experience a very unique way of learning more about God and church family. Again weekly Communion is at 9am; Worship Service starts at 9:30am; Gathering Time is 10:30am with classes at 11:00am. Eden Chapel United Methodist Church is located at the comer of 92nd Street and S. Fairgrounds Road we are the little church under the big sign. Come see us! Lost Creek United Methodist Church As usual, there is a lot going on out at Lost Creek this week. We've had the monthly Food Closet on Wednesday afternoon. As the old saying goes "It's more blessed to give than to receive." Those who help with the Food Closet each month would be the first to agree with that statement. This Sunday morning, the Alaska team will be serving another delicious meal after Sunday School. This week's menu includes meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans and a yummy dessert. Also on Sunday, we'll be commissioning a team leaving later that same day for Peru. This is the third mission trip Lost Creek folks have made to that part of the world and we are excited to see what God has in store for this year! Our youth are looking forward to summer already and are signing up for Youth Force OKC as well as the second edi- tion of Youth Force Perkins. For more information on how you can be involved, contact the Lost Creek office or Jake Ehrlich, our youth director.

Come join our celebra- tion! Immanuel Baptist Church By Claudia Andrews FREE "Dinner & a Movie" on Sun., Feb. 19. The dinner begins at 5 p.m. and the movie "Courageous" begins at 6 p.m. Brother Robin is preparing a brisket for dinner and our ladies are providing the side dishes! Please come and enjoy the evening with us as we view another great movie by the makers of Fireproof and Facing the Giants. Those who have already seen it exclaim that everyone should see this movie. Join us! Linda Riley played an organ offertory and Kole Kennemer sang "Christ is Risen" before the morning sermon for those who came last Sunday to celebrate Jesus as Lord. Brother Robin' s message "God Call Me?" was taken from John 1:35-51 which tells of the calling of some of Christ's Apostles. As John the Baptist was standing with two of his disciples, he declared "Behold, the Lamb of God" - more accurately stated "Behold, the Sacrifice of God," the Just Sacrifice that turns away God's wrath from us. The lambs sacrificed for sin at that time were a prequel to the coming Lamb of God, which was Jesus. Those two disciples, John and Andrew, began to follow Jesus, they brought Peter, Philip, and Nathaniel. Jesus called ordinary fishermen, just as He extends the call to each one of us to "come and follow Me." When God calls us He will get us to where we need to be; calling us each day to follow Jesus, as we die to self and live daily for Him. The evening message "Getting to the Head of the Table" was taken from Luke 14:7-11, speaking to the culture of achievement even then. It is the same today as this passage reminds us that we are not the most important people we know! If we think we have a more important status than others, we may become embarrassed by our attitudes and actions. The world standards seem to purport we should "be a tiger" to get ahead, when God's standard calls us to humil- ity, meekness and service. Somehow meekness seems to be misunderstood as weakness, when in actuality it is strength under control. In order to be great in God' s kingdom, we must first be the servants of all, following Jesus as our example. You remember the acrostic: Jesus, Other, You - JOY!

In just a few weeks, we will be sending off a group from our church to Nicaragua for a short-term mission trip. They will be doing construction while on site, as well as other min- istries such as working with Children at the local school, and of course whatever else God opens up in the way of ministry while there. We are looking forward to seeing all that God will accomplish as this group goes out from among us to minister in Nicaragua. It is sure to be another fantastic adventure as our Church joins the Lord in what He is doing in that Nation. First Baptist Church has taken an active roll in Mission's in the past few years. Mission's has become our heart. The Lord has sent many of us out to serve Him in various ways all around the world and we count it a privilege to be able to join Him in His work and take an active roll in spreading the Gospel throughout the world. Our "Mission's Heart" is not just over sea's, or outside the U.S, however. We have also been blessed to join the Lord here at home, ministering to the Community of Perkins and in other places across our Nation. We are eagerly looking forward to new opportunities to join the Lord, whether near or far in the area of Missions. For this is just one of the ministries that are active and alive in our hearts at First Baptist Church. We have been blessed to have many new visitor' s at FBC. If you have visited our Church, we want you to know that we are honored that you came to join us for Worship and we invite you to come again. There are many more happen- ings and ministries going on at First Baptist Church. (More than this article has room for.) And we hope that you will come and make our Church your regular place of Worship and Service to the Lord. We hope to see you next Sunday at FBC! Blessings to you all! The Church of Christ in Perkins By Bob Penick Think for a moment. What is the hardest choice you have ever had to make'! Way back in the "Dark Ages" of the60's, while attending the University of Texas, one of my professors cancelled a class so that we could go to a notable track meet in Memo- rial Stadium. When some of the serious-minded students questioned his priorities, he offered that there was profit in taking the opportunity to witness someone who could do something better than anyone else in the world. He suggested that we go see Bobby Morrow mn because he was the fastest man on earth. I went, and he won, but I profited more when I learned what an exemplary Christian fellow he was. The 2011 football season is finally over, but you may not have heard one little publicized story about choices that were made concenfing the U.T.-O.U. football game last year. The game was scheduled to be played on Yom Kipper, an important day for Jewish students.
