Church News Eden Chapel United Methodist By Rev. John Curtis We are open for worship, in-person at 11 a.m., so get up, get dressed and come out to celebrate God with us LIVE! Mask will not be required unless you feel you need to wear one and social distancing will be left up to the individuals attending. We are no longer on Facebook Live or posting on Facebook. We will be recording our service and then posting on our website edenchapelchurch on Monday/Tuesday. If you have missed any of our worships or Thoughts from Theophilus Puppet Plays, you will find us on our website at edenchapelchurch. Make sure it is this website because I have found that we are not the only Eden Chapel Church in America! I This Sunday, December 13 will be the 3rd Sunday of Advent (Joy) at Eden Chapel. The sermon scripture is 1 John 3: 1-3 with the title being “Your Heavenly Father". Our understanding of God is directly affected by how we relate to our earthly dads. This is because our first aware- ness of authority, love, provision, and security comes from our parents (right or wrong, it's a fact). It is only natural that how we perceive our parents would influence how we view all of our relationships, including the One we have with God. Regardless of whether you had a good father, one who was abusive, or one who was absent, understand that God the Father wants to have a loving relationship with you and has gone to great lengths to provide it to you. God will instruct you how to walk with Him step-by-step. Consider what negative traits you may be attributing to God because of your earthly relationships. Then discover the truth about Him and you will find joy! As always we are that church on the hill in the country that you have been looking for but just keep driving by. Please come out and enjoy a Sunday with us! Our Sunday School starts at 9:30 am. and dismisses at 10:30 a.m., Morning Worship starts at 11 am. and concludes around 12 noon just in time for lunch. Our fellowship time is from 10:30 am. until 11 am. so come share some coffee, juice and donuts 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 Pearl Harbor Day, Dec. 7, 1941, a day that lived “in infamy,” awakened a sleeping giant. Thanks tovour grandfathers and mothers and great grandfathers and mothers for answering the call to preserve our freedom at home and abroad! We continue to be grateful to praise and worship the One who brings hope and peace. Rita and Gale Cavanaugh sang a favorite hymn “What a Friend We Have in Jesus” before the sermon for those who came to celebrate Jesus as Savior and Lord 011 Sunday. Brother Steve Hawley’s message “How to Live an Exciting Life” was from Isaiah 9:6. We remember that when Jesus aSCended to the Father, He promised to send a comforter, the Holy Spirit, 'to live in His believers . »_ Vehurmofammnom :Cimarmu Valley Church . I, 901 N.

What is that like to live in the Holy Spirit, Jesus living in us? It starts with the Person of Christ and the meaning of His name: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, and Prince of Peace. Won- derful: what is true wonder, Psalm 8:1-9? True wonder has depth, it is not shallow; it has value, not cheap entertainment; it creates humility, Matthew 18:3-4; it possesses the whole person, all of who we are. Why is there little wonder now? We live in a mechanical, commercial, busy and artificial world. We are a busy world trying to be successful, making a living instead of making a life. What have we given up to do just that? “Stop and smell the roses” arose from the “little wonder” world reminding us that the world‘s stuff still leaves us empty. Jesus IS Wonderful! There is meaning in His birth: He came to live among us. His life on earth was extraor- dinary and gave evidence He was the Messiah by 35 separate miraculous events. His Words of life told us how to live and get to heaven. He came to die for me personally and you personally! He came to give eternal life by His resurrection I Corinthians 15:20-22. Some, of us do not get past the baby in the manger or even the crucified Christ nailed to the Cross. The Persbn of Christ is Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Prince of Peace and He knows my name! Tuesdays: 10 am. S.I.S.T.E.R.S. meet at church and 7 pm. Men’s Bible study meet downtown Perkins. Wednesdays: 6-8 pm. the Chosen Generation youth group meet in the Youth Room. Come visit us at 2415 E 104, just a mile north of Per- kins. Info: 547-1222, www.ibcperkins.org or Facebook Immanuel Baptist Church Perkins. Christian Church of Perkins- By Judith Riden Your needs and My riches are a perfect fit. I never meant for you to be self-sufficient. Instead, I designed you to need Me not only for daily bread but also for fulfillment of deep yearnings.,l carefully crafted your longings and feelings of incompleteness, to point you to Me. Therefore, do not try to bury or deny these feelings. Beware of also trying to pacify these longings with lesser gods: people, possessions, power. Come to Me in all your neediness, with defenses down and with desire to be blessed. As you spend time in My Presence, your deepest longings are fulfilled. Rejoice in your neediness, which enables you to find intimate completion in Me. Philippians 4:19, Colossians 2:2-3 Our sermon next Sunday is “Songs of Christmas” from Luke 1-2 by Howard Faerber. Continue to pray for our country, our community, and a special prayer for our students and parents as we work to i get through distance learning. Also pray for our teachers as they continue to teach over the computer. Christian Church of Perkins, 121 E. Stumbo, (405) 547- 2004. Sunday service 10:30 a.m., Wednesday Bible Study 6 pm.

Friday evening music _ recital showcased lots of talent from young people. Sat- urday morning we gave away grOceries, hams, and toys to 100 or more families. Then, real live church on Sunday. God is so good! ‘ Scripture from Isaiah read by Nick was prophesying the coming of Christ. Then Pastor Tiner shared scripture about how God used ordinary people to tell the story of Christ’s birth — Zechariah, J oesph, and most importantly, lowly Mary the mother of Christ. A good example of how He can use us to fulfill , - His plans. Thank you Lord for including ordinary people as I. Amen . ‘ A challenge for the rest of December - look at the book of Psalm 119. Notice it is laid out in sections of eight verses, Psalm 119:1 through 119:176. Each eight verse section stars with a letter from the Hebrew alphabet - 21 sets. So that’s enough sections to take you right up to Christmas! Start now, this week. Thank you Lord for your words of enlightenment. A dear sweet sister in Christ was laid to rest with a beau- tiful memorial service Friday at church. Another sweet sister'was laid to rest not long ago. We want to keep their husbands and families in our prayers for comfort and love. Call them or sendcards of comfort. We love all of you. This was the first Sunday to celebrate Christ with com- munion this season. Remember Jesus is the real reason for the wonderful Christmas season. Several events coming up: Family Sunday — grab a gift card and pass it on to a friend, surprising someone in need, or buy gifts of dinner items for a neighbor. Come and join us in these events and feel the Christmas Spirit moving. Praying for all the ones felling ill, anxious about the times, being in lockdown (A good time to read a Psalm each day). Call someone, send a card, wear a smile behind . the mask — others will know and maybe smile back. God is still in control of this whole world — He’s got us all in His loving arms.

Friends Chapel Church, By Bobby Garringer, pastor MARRIAGE, DIVORCE AND REMARRIAGE (con- tinued); For one more installment, let’s discuss a little more the need for background studies in order to under- stand the Bible and, especially, what it says about difficult and controversial subjects like marriage and divorce. In the last letter from the Apostle Paul that we have in the New Testament, he wrote this request to Timothy: “When you come, bring. .. my scrolls, especially the parchments” CHURCH, Page B4 i} (405) 547-2436 it MAIN BANK 202 S.
