Church News THE JOURNAL, Thursday, September 22, 2011 -C3 .= q'l First Baptist Church of Perkins Money is a big issue in our lives, and because of that, its important for us to know what God says about money and possessions in His word. Last Sunday, Pastor Marty continued his sermon series on Money Matters, and spe- cifically addressed the subject of Tithing and the joy of giving to God. God has given us so much as Believers. He has blessed us with every Spiritual Blessing. Provides for our every need. Gives us joy, hope, peace, love, etc. But most of all, He has given us the wonderful gift of His Son. Jesus Christ. who paid for our sins, so that we might have eternal life. Indeed, God is a generous giver. Hebrews 12:2 says, that it was Jesus' joy to give his life upon the cross to pay for our sins. It should also be our joy to give back to God, who loved us so. Certainly, we can never repay Him for the generous gift of Jesus, but we can show God our gratitude for His gift in our giving. The tithe, is a portion of the blessing that God has given us. A tenth of our income. When we tithe, it is an acknowledgment from where or who, our provision came from~God. Tithing, is an offering of our first and best, to be given back to God with thanksgiving, for all that He has done for us '. Tithing is a principal that God has laid out for us in His word. We are to put Him first in all aspects of our lives. Our money is of no exception. It might surprise you to know, that tithing, comes with a promise. In Malachi 3:10 it says "Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there my be food in my house. Test me in this, says the Lord Almighty, and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it. Even if God did not attach His promise with the giving of the Tithe, He has already thrown open the floodgates of heaven and poured out such a blessing upon us that we cannot contain the whole of His gift. For the gift of Jesus is a gift that keeps on giving for all eternity. Let us then, become generous, joyful, givers to God. Let us acknowledge him with the first fruits of our labors in joyful praise. For our tenth, cannot compare to ~His all. As always, our door is open at First Baptist Church, Perkins. We have a place just for you. Please come and join us. Everyone is welcome. Immanuel Baptist Church By Claudia Andrews By this printing we will have heard great messages from God's Word by the revival team of Youth Minister Bro. Ryan Young,, and heardgreat singing led and sung by Music Minister Bro. Doc Ware ! Both of these called men are from First Baptist Church, Elk City; former home church of our own Music Minister Kole Kennemer. We enjoyed a great time of renewal and fellowship each evening. Our AWANA Clubs will be back in session on Wed., Oct. 5, 6:30-8 p.m., which is "Black & Orange Night." Susan Henderson is leading a study on Revelation for ladies during that time. If you missed this study last semester, here's a great opportunity to come check it out! Jon Bartram played a great guitar rendition of "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" for the morning offertory and Jim Bickell sang "Serenaded by Angels" before the sermon for those who came to celebrate Jesus as Lord. Brother Robin's message "Revival--God's Awakening Work among His People" was taken from Psalm 85:1-7. Revival is God's work among His people that leads to passionate gospel centered change in our lives to know God deeply. We are the poorest "rich" people as we don't even realize our desperate need or situations. The world needs to see the change Christ makes in the life of the Christian. Someone coined the phrase "Bible ationships" having to do with the fact our relationships should reveal the biblical change in our all of who we are. Isaiah 6:1-8 tells about one man's personal revival, which is where it begins. Isaiah realized he served a Holy God, acknowledged his own sin and confessed it. He then allowed God to cleanse him and opened himself to God's service. The Christian should be living in revival on an every day basis. Two of our members, Frank Shannon and Bennett Andrews, along with 13 others from our Cimarron Baptist Association spent 10 day in eastern North Carolina doing Chain Saw ministry work in the wake of the hurricane damage there. Bennett shared during the evening service about their trip and the work of the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma in helping with Disaster Relief efforts. Any member of a South- em Baptist Church, 18 years and up (and many are!) can receive training to be a part of this rewarding and helpful ministry. Brother Robin's evening message was taken from Mark 7:24-30 about "Reaching Out and Touching for Christ." The Syrophoenician woman came to Christ in desperate need with faith and a willingness to do what it took to come to the Person who could provide that help. We each have opportunities to touch lives each day for Christ. What are we willing to do to help others come to the One who can help? Come visit us at 2415 E 104th Street, just 1 mile north of Perkins.

Fairgrounds Road we are the little church under the big sign. Come see us! Lost Creek United Methodist Church "Welcome to the big house !" and with that welcome. worship began in the sanctuary after several weeks of o having services in the fellowship hall. With the lively acoustics of a cement floor, it sounded like a party going - on, and indeed, it was a celebration! We still had concrete for our flooring, and we were sitting in folding chairs of various shapes and colors, but it was good to be back in the sanctuary. The storm of a ' few weeks ago has barely slowed anything going on at Lost Creek, and no services or activities were cancelled because of the damage. Within the next month, the rest of the carpet should be in place; and early in November, the pews and choir chairs will be back looking better than ever! Through all of this, we've been reminded once again that it's not about the building where we worship and feUowship together, but about the people who are there! Many have helped to put things back together and it's been good to spend the time together! In spite of our altered circumstances, we've enjoyed having many visitors in the past few weeks. You are ] invited to join us as well! To find out more about the J ministries and services at Lost Creek, check us out at our website: lostcreekumc.org or find us on Facebook. Worship times each Sunday are 8:30 and 11:00 with classes at 9:45. Lost Creek is located halfway between Perkins and Stillwater on 80th Street one mile west of Hwy. 177.
