The Christian Church of Perkins Sam White, Minister Everyone is invited to worship this Sunday at the Christian Church of Perkins as our minister, Sam White, preaches from Mat- thew 6 on "The Lord's Prayer." Come be challenged to make your prayer life all it can be. This Sunday will also be Sam's last Sunday with us as he is moving to Colorado Springs to become the director of the Rocky Mountain Christian Mission in Colorado Springs. A farewell lun- cheon will take place immediately following morning worship. This past Sunday, we were excited to welcome Phil and Sarah Schmidt to worship, as well as Lauren and Amanda Bostian. We also had a successful picnic, with 27 people in attendance. Thanks to Randy Perry for cooking the burgers and to Leo Whitmore for bringing a working grill. Sam's sermon this past Sunday was on prayer. The Bible speaks of prayer more than three hundred times, so it must be an impor- tant subject. But for all the things the Bible tells us about prayer, it doesn't tell us a couple things we might like to know. It doesn't tell us how long prayer should be, for one thing. Or does it? Paul says we should "pray continually." The problem may be that we are looking for a manual for prayer that will give us every single step, like a car repair book. But the point of praying is not that we become better prayers (though it is certainly a benefit we will reap); the point of prayer is that we grow closer to God. Sunday School begins at 9:45 a.m., followed by Morning Wor- ship at 10:45. The Lord's SUpl)er is offered each week during the Merning Worship to all believers. Perkins Church of Christ By Terry Tharp, Minister As the old saying goes, "Time flies when you're having fun." I would have to agree, it's true. Last Sunday morning after services, the church had a potluck celebration for my family and me. It was for our two year anniversary with the Perkins' Church of Christ. I can hardly believe how fast time has gone by. I feel blessed to work with such a wonderful group people, and to live in a great community. We have made great friends and are looking forward to many more years of service in Perkins. As always, you are invited to come and worship with us. Bible classes for all ages begin at 9 g.m. Sunday morning; Worship ser- vice is at 10 a.m.; Sunday evening services at 6 p.m.; Wednesday evening devotion and study at 7 p.m. We are located at 1200 N. Lovers Lane, our phone is 547-5393. Mehan Union Church By Elba Vassar Larry Eslinger, pastor of Mehan Union Church, said, "Every- one is welcome here." He said, "there are all kinds of Christians in our church. The church is filled with 'good Christians' every Sun- day for morning worship services." Sunday School starts at 9:45 a.m. Morning Worship begins at 10:45. ix Eslinger teases, "We also have 'really dedicated Christians' who come back to church on Sunday evenings, and we really appreciate them." Youth fellowship and Bible studies and the Adult choir starts at 6 p.m. The regular Sunday evening service follows at 7 p.m. The pastor pointed out that there were also some who might be called "really radical" who come back to church again for mid- week services. Adult and youth bible stuclies are held each Wednes- day evening at 7. He is especially proud of these members, but he loves all kinds of Christians, and everyorLe.is welcome anytime.

We started out as hairdresser-customer. We reviewed the world, our lives, and explored our positions. We discussed wars, tragedies, civil rights and elections. We became confidants, confessors, thera- pists, and companions in a way. We discussed, argued and joked-- but always with a certain thoughtful deference. After all, I was her customer and she was standing there with a razor or scissors in her hand. Some of our children are almost the same age. We went through the pangs of parenthood together. We shared wife stories, children stories, car trouble, lawn problems. In that many years, you dis- cover many things about another person--that she is always taking care of older persons, picking them up and delivering them some- where--buying children gifts at Christmas that might not have had gifts. Fixing the hair of shut-ins and deceased friends. She's a fantastic lady--doing many more favors that I know about or could enumerate. We don't visit each other's homes--not time, necessary or con- venient, I guess--yet she has become a very important part of my life--perhaps more than if we were next door neighbors. The qual- ity of our friendship was partly created by a peculiar distance. With- out realizing it, we fill important places in each other's lives. The way persons in our lives do--ministers, grocer, mechanics, doctors, teachers, neighbors, co-workers. Good people who are always there- -who can be relied upon in important ways. People who teach us, bless us, encourage us, support us, uplift us in our daliness t)f life. Do we tell them enough how much they mean to us? And of course, perhaps we play similar roles--there are those who depend on us, watch us, learn from us--and we never know. Each of you may never be told of your importance but you are more important than you think. I want to tell Dorothy how much she means to me. I appreciate you, dear friend.
