The church is located on Hwy 177, approximately 1.7 miles north of Hwy 33. Mehan Union Church by Larry Eslinger We had a wonderful day in the Lord Sunday. The message was, "This is the Day" the Lord hath made; let us rejolce and be glad in it. The reason we are here today is "Grace." "Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now I'm found, was blind but now I see." By his grace we had over 220 in our morning worship service. And by his grace we baptized Taylin McCoy and added two new members, Don and Alice Thompson. Praise the Lord! Kathleen Purdum-Smith recited a beautiful poem she wrote called "The Day God Answered our Prayers." Wednesday evenings a free meal for the community is served. This week immediately following the meal we will sack groceries for our Saturday distribution. On the second Saturday of each month we give away over 20,000 Ibs of food to over 300 families. If you need help with groceries or would like to come and help give out the groceries, come by the church between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. Our Youth Department will be helping with food distribution again this month and so will the youth from Oklahoma City Methodist Church. Af- ter the distribution and clean-up they are going to have a time of fellow- ship and food from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. We are planning a Women's Retreat September 28 and 29. Beve Jo Gamble from Parker, Colorado will be teaching "Gracious Garments." Dinner will be catered Friday evening at 6 p.m. The first session of the seminar is "clothed in God's Heavenly Garments." At 9 a.m. Saturday morning, there will be a Continental Breakfast. The second and third ses- sions will be "Cleanse the Heart, Renew the Mind" and "Nourished with a Continuous Feast." All are invited to attend. For more information, please call the church• Next Sunday's morning message is going to be "How to Succeed With- out Really Trying." Sunday evening we will be studying the life of Paul. Make plans to come out and be a part of an active, growing church where God is good all the time! Eden Chapel News by Bob Hilley This past week's sermon was entitled "Aim High." Based on Collosians 3:1-11, the message dealt with balancing the need to strive hard versus being too competitive. As Christians, we need to do our best for God, but often we tend to compare ourselves to others, especially in our society. Part of the lesson that we need to learn as Christians is that we need to do our best while also rejoicing when olhers succeed, even if they do "bet- ter" than we do. We also had a visit from Daniel Coonhound. Daniel was all excited about Bible school. He thought that the there arc a lot of similarities be- tween this year's Old West theme and the lessons that center around the Book of Acts of the Apostles. Daniel pointed out that the early church faces lots of obstacles just like the pioneers involved in the movement West. The effort to establish towns and farms was similar to taking the Word to new regions and starting up churches. There were 69 in Sunday morning worship and 36 in Sunday school. Sunday evening we concluded Bible school at Taylorsville. Last Thurs- day, we saw the finale of the big showdown between the Riverdance Kid and the villainous Blue Barry. The Kid continued to refuse to fight, but won Blue Barry over by sending him a card that said, "God loves you and so do I." When the whole town expressed their desire that Blue Barry settle down in SonCreek Junction, Blue Barry was totally won over. Still, Blue Barry just had to know if lhe Kid was as fast as his reputation. So, the kid demonstrated his skills as a gum-fighter and blew a huge bubble. So Sunday night we got to celebrate the first services in the new church at SonCreek Junction. We'd like to thank all those who helped make VBS so special. Cer- tainly the teachers and kitchen workers deserve a big hand. Those who brought horses, wagons, and trains, as well as the square dancers and those who ran the special events such as gold-panning, apple-bobbing, sack races, barrel-racing, and other activities. A special note of thanks also goes to Ellen Boydstun to provided the props that made the Long Branch Salon so authentic. Attendance at Bible school averaged around 110 per night. Those in attendance donated more than $300, which will bc donated to the Boys' Ranch in Gore, Oklahoma. The Youth Group took their annual Mystery Ramble over the weekend, going to Oklahoma City to visit the OKC Bombing Memorial, the Bricktown area, and taking in a movie. Coming up August 25 is St. Yootz Day at Frontier City. Soon we will be starting new studies under the Disciples program. Next Sunday night, the evening services will be dedicated to a preview of the studies. That will be at 6:45. Morning servicesbegin at 9:30 with Sunday school at I 1 :(X). We'd love to have you come join us in worship and fellowship. First Baptist Church by Kelley Spence Last Sunday, the message entitled "Come Holy Spirit" was delivered by Pastor Albert May. The Biblical Text used was Hebrews 10: 26-3t. The writer of Hebrews clearly states in this passage of Scripture that if we deliberately keep on sinning and we know that we are in sin that there is no sacrifice left. In other words there is a difference in knowing what we are to do and refusing to do it. In refusing to follow the commands of our Lord we trample the Son of God under foot and insult the spirit of grace. God takes very seriously our attitude in refusing to obey him. Reflis- ing to do what has been commanded takes one out from under the um- brella of the covenant promises of God. Further in this passage of He- brews (verse 31 ) the writer states that it is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
