Church News THE JOURNAL, Thursday, March 12, 2015- C3 Lost Creek United Methodist Church There is a lot more to being the church than just going to church on Sunday mornings. Last Sunday at Lost Creek was a testament to that fact. Rev. Adam Leathers, Director of Criminal, Justice, and Mercy Ministries in the Oklahoma Conference of the United Methodist Church, spoke to the congregation about New Day Camp. New Day Camp is specifically aimed at children of incarcerated parents. Carletta Denisen, a long-time camp leader at New Day Camp shared her passion for helping these children as well. Lost Creek was able to sponsor 25 children to this weeklong camp last year. The Oklahoma Blood Institute bus was back at Lost Creek on Sunday. Because of bad weather, the need for blood has reached a critical stage in Oklahoma. We are glad to offer this opportunity to give the gift of life. During the 8:30 service, six Lost Creek members were commissioned to go serve in Mexico during Spring Break. They will be traveling with 30 team members from Owasso United Methodist Church. Their mission is to build two homes (casitas) and have Bible School for neighborhood children. A special send-off from Lost Creek will take place this Friday evening at 6:30. Another Lost Creek member will be going to Behnopan. Belize on mission with a team from Chapel Hill UMC in Okla- homa City. This team will continue work on the Methodist Hh School. A young lady from Lost Creek will be serving  a group of OSU students on mission in Albuquerque, New Mexico. That brings the number to eight serving abroad ol)Lmission during Spring Break. Lost Creek fosters a missional spirit in all ages of our con- ggation, believing you are never too young to start serving. Te CREW class, 3rd-6th graders, will be taking a mission trip on::March 22 to Cookson Hills in eastern Oklahoma. ;,nother delicious meal was served by the Alaska Mission t, and those planning to go to Peru this summer met to discuss plans.

Eden Chapel United Methodist By Rev. John K. Curtis Welcome to Eden Chapel a United Methodist Family Fel- lowship experience. We do Sundays a little different at Eden Chapel and I believe you will enjoy it as much as we do. We begin every Sunday morning at 9am with a very personal Com- munion Experience in our Prayer Chapel. Then we prepare for our Sunday Morning Worship at 9:30am which leads us into our Gathering Time (visiting and snacks) at 10:30am. Then we are off to Sunday School at 1 lamto share Christ, our lives and experiences with each other. Later on each Sunday evening at 5pm we have Youth and Children activities starting with a family style meal and then Bible lessons and games. If you like to sing, then come and join us on Wednesday evening at 6pm for choir practice and enjoy the music. If you are interested in Bible Studies, we gather at 8am every Thursday morning for prayer time with Bible Talk and then at 9am we continue our Bible Study as we travel though the "Acts of the Apostles". This is the 4th Sunday of Lent and One Great Hour of Sharing Sunday at Eden Chapel as we continue our Lenten Journey toward Easter. Pastor John will be teaching from Ephesians 2: 1-10 with the title of his teaching "Designed by God" God shaped you according to your purpose for him. How else can you explain yourself?. Your ability to diagnose an engine problem by the noise it makes or to bake a cake with- out a recipe. You knew the Civil War better than your history teacher. You know the name of every kid in the school. How do you explain such feats of skill? God? God! Yes God, he knew young Israel would need a code of conduct, so he gave Moses a love for the law. He knew the doctrine of grace would need an advocate, so he set Paul to spread the Good News. And even in your case, he knew what your generation would need and he gave it to you to share. Yes. God designed you! And his design defines your destiny. Remember what Peter said, "If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies?' You are designed to be saved by God's grace because of your faith and this salvation is God's gift and the very design of God for you. You are all invited to experience Holy Week (Monday-Fri- day) starting on 30 March (Monday) at the Perkins Christian Church located downtown in Perkins. The Perkins Ministerial Alliance (PMA) will be providing a free meal at lunch (serv- ing times are 11:30 and 12:30) each day. One of our PMA ministers will be bringing the Word of God and songs each day at 12:00, so come and join us for a great week of food, fellowship and Word as the Perkins Community prepares for the Easter celebration. Come visit Eden Chapel this Sunday as we travel on our "Lenten" journey toward Easter and find out why "Eden Chapel" people seem to be so darn happy! You will expe- rience how we are "Designed by God" to change the world and you also will be changed! Eden Chapel is located at the comer of 92nd Street and S. Fairgrounds Road. Come and enjoy a Family Fellowship experience with us! We hope to see you this Sunday. Immanuel Baptist Church By Claudia Andrews It was so good for God's forever family to be together again after all the snow days! Sunshine and rain ahead! Allen Cain played a steel guitar offertory rendition of the great hymn "How Great Thou Art". Bob Gilbert sang a great older hyrrm "Haven of Rest" before the moming sermon for those who came to celebrate Jesus as Lord. Brother Michael W. Cannon's message was Part 2 of"Grow Up! Wait??" taken from James 5:7-10. Waiting involves patience, a virtue we want now! In II Corinthians 4:1,8-10, 13-15 we are reminded to not lose heart a&.a. give up. God continues to work in the Christian, reminding us our troubles are momentary and to fix our eyes Him. We are here on earth on a "working permit" as we share the Good News until He calls us Home. Do not allow frustrations to take over, remem- ber that God is in control. Our first line of defense is prayer, allowing God to grow us up as we patiently wait on His timing. Bro. Mike sang a song his cousin wrote "Where Angels Sing" before he brought the evening message: again a Part 2 of "What God Hath Joined Together: Why Men Respond to Honof' taken from Mark 10:2-12 and Ephesians 5. Unfortu- nately the world and TV does not portray the husband of the family in an honoring roll any more. Yet, that is totally God's plan for the husband in the family. God has wired men and women differently, thus their rolls in the family are different. Ephesians 5:33 reveals that the wife responds to love and the husband responds to honor/reverence asmen are linear think- ers and woman are global thinkers. When they come together as God intended, God is honored and the marriage is blessed. Our WM&M ladies will meet Sat., Mar. 14, at 8am for a quick breakfast and devotion. Our students are planning a trip to see the movie "Do You Believe?" coming to theaters Mar. 20. Come visit us at 2415 E 104, just a mile north of Perkins.

Jesus did not come to mankind to heal our physical ailments. He came to etemally heal our souls through acceptance of him. However, physical healing was an important part of his ministry. He performed miracles like raising the dead, giving sight to the blind, restoring deformed bodies, and calming the sea. These miracles gave authority to Jesus teachings and his claim to be the Messiah. They generated crowds numbering in the thousands that followed him at every opporttmity. Mark 5:25-35 tells about a time when Jesus had been begged by a local synagogue ruler, named Jairus, to come save his twelve year old daughter who was dying. Jesus went with him and the crowd thronged behind. While enroute, Jesus was approached from behind and his clothing touched. Jesus felt healing power leave him and stopped. Then he turned around and asked "who has touched my clothes?" After some tense moments, a scared, frightened, and very frail woman came forward and admitted her guilt during a soul bearing testimony. She had been afflicted with continuous hemorrhaging for twelve years. Desperate for a cure, she had spent all of her money on doctors whose attempts were little more than super- stitious rituals resulting from a trust in magic. She was labeled as being unclean by Jewish law and excluded from most social contacts - including touching others which would make them unclean also. She had heard of Jesus' miracles and had faith See CHURCH, page C4 HARRIS ELECTRIC SNB PERKINS BUILDERS SUPPLY B Open Mon.-Fri. 7:30-5:30 p.m. & Sat. 8-Noon Sadler Road & Hwy' 33.Perkins 547-5333
