B4 THE JOURNAL, Thursday, March 14, 2019 Eden Chapel United Methodist By Rev. John Curtis This Sunday is the right day for your visit to Eden Chapel. Yes we believe that when you worship with us you will find a home here on earth! We are that church on the hill in the country that you have been looking for but just keep driving by. You are invited to come out and enjoy Sunday morning with us! Morning Commu- nion is at 9:45am, Sunday School starts at 10am and dismisses at 10:45, Morning Worship starts at 11am and concludes around 12 noon. Our snack time is ready at 9am and available until 11am, come share coffee, juice and donuts with us. i It will be the Second Sunday of Lent at Eden Chapel. Pastor John will be teaching from the book of Proverbs 11: 1—3 with the title being “Gap-Free Living”. Back in the 1970’s when computers were rare and very simple, we had a saying “Garbage In ~— Garbage Out” or “GIGO”. It was very important to not fill the computer with corrupt files or unnecessary information for what goes into the memory will also come out. As a Pastor I now the con- cept of GIGO is even more powerful and life-changing when you apply it to our heart. What’s in your heart’s well will always come up in the bucket. I like to think of GIGO now as God In — God Out. If you are putting God into your heart every day, thinking of him, studying his word, talking to other about him, then God will come out or up in the bucket. The real test comes when you’re under pressure, when you are getting the squeeze, what is coming out of your life —- God or Garbage? So we hope to see you at Eden Chapel! You are always invited on any Sunday to come out to Eden Chapel for a visit and celebrate the living Christ with us! We are located at the corner of 92nd Street and South Fairgrounds road right outside of Perkins. Immanuel Baptist Church By Claudia Andrews Sun, rain, time change: we’ll take it all in Oklahoma! God is good! The fellowship was sweet in His house this Sunday. Debbie Sanders blessed us with a piano offertory “’Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus” before the sermon for those who came to celebrate Jesus as Savior and Lord. Guest Transitional Pastor Brother Derek Dennis brought the morning message from Luke 9:23-25. This is a strong statement from Jesus to ALL those who would follow him. Expanding the Kingdom of God can be exhausting on our own strength, trying to do what we cannot with what we do not have. We must realize that God is able to do all things with all that He has. Life is like operating with three gears, Drive, Neutral, or Reverse. We must be moving forward, in D; not standing still (N) and definitely not in R (reverse)! God’s church should be operating in D! Relationships, not tradition, is most important with our relationship with God being paramount. The biblical message never changes , but methodology might need to Sponsored by these fine I I busiesses w l is ,L l’ ' a? change to meet the needs of people. Knowledge of what is absolute, what is compromisable, what really matters and dying to self is a good place to start. Tobie Sanders sang an old favorite “God Leads His People Along” before the evening sermon. Bro. Dennis shared his testimony of growing up near Wellston and moving on to college at Central State/ UCO having met his wife there. He dealt with several struggles during his early life, but eventually received Christ through the director and wife of the Baptist Student Union/Baptist Collegiate Ministry. The vibrant, zealous love for the Lord of the couple made an impact on his life. Even as a believer, he continued to have a few struggles, but realized he could find mercy and grace before the throne of God because He is a good, good Father! By the time this paper gets in print, the AWANA Clubbers will have celebrated memorizing 500 verses by having a pizza party!

This is the first message in a series entitled “Promises Made; Promises Kept.” Today’s scriptures tell about Jesus’ farewell address to his disciples at the last supper. His remarks had given them quite a lot to think about. Jesus had told‘them, “The time has come for me, the Son of Man, to enter into my glory. And God will bring me into my glory very soon. Then, though you search for me, you cannot come to me.” Jesus had also told them, “The truth is, one of you will betray me!” Plus he had told Peter, “Before the rooster crows tomorrow morning, you will deny three times that you even know me.” Christ was naturally aware of his disciples concerns about him leaving this world and returning to his Father. He promised them he would prepare rooms for them in his Father’s home. When ready, he would come get them. Until then, they should trust him and not worry. Christ promised to send the Holy Spirit as his representative, promised that anything asked in his name would be given, that they could have peace of mind and heart knowing he was going back to the Father, and that Satan had no power over him and therefore no power over them. Christ’s message to us today is exactly the same one he gave to his disciples. He has kept his promise of sending us the Holy Spirit and his promise of giving anything asked in his name. This Holy Spirit is the very presence of God within us and helping us to live as he wants us Malian Union Church a ,, 830013 68th, Stillwater (405) 7432097 , Toby Tmer, Pastor (40374743610 mehanunionehurchCngailcom 'PerldnsChurehofChflst ilmomer’slaueyerkins 1 (405)547-5393; :1;§MattMills,Minister ' MikeBaleJayLittaustamesmme,’ , {gamers r, Smday Selma} 9 am., Services 10 am. , ‘ SundayeveningBible smyefim. r r " Wednesday7pm. , (“)33223519 I L’ Gofi‘ee&Feflowslfip10am.", tudy 11 am. and 11:15am SpanishMass 1 pm. r r , Tuesday-Thruway? am. , : 1,.

Christian Church of Perkins By Dave Pock Today’s power verse: John 14:19 “Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live.” God’s promise to you: Proverbs 28:20 Because He Livesli When I was a young boy. growing up on the farm, we had rules to live by. Rules like, eat everything on your plate and stir up all the sugar in your tea. The kids in China are starving! Never drive up a hill on the wrong side of the road. You might have to face your neighbor coming at you with his John Deere tractor! Don’t... Don’t... Don’t... Every rule was a ‘don’t.’ Then I grew up one day, as a young man, I realized that Jesus changed it all. He said for us to DO. Yes, go do! “Do unto others what you would have them do to you!” He said for us to do, by praying and believ- ing at the same time. Yes, we are to be like Him! He never said a prayer without total belief in what he was praying for. In order for us to be happy and live life to the fullest here, as well as hereafter, we must put on the very mind of Christ. Yes, The bible tells us to, “be made new in the attitude of our minds, and to put on the new self, created to be like Him,” It even tells us to, “Speak the truth in love,” and when we do we become, in every respect, mature and built up in Him. (Ephesians 4th Chapter) Yes, and as we speak the truth in love and begin to “Do everything in love.”( lst Corinthians 16:14) We become like Him and people around us begin to see Jesus living in us. Worry, goes ouf the window, confidence increases and our faith leads us to go and DO! Yes, we begin to live life to the fullest and we realize that joy is not found in things, Joy is in us! Praise God for our JESUS!
