General Announcements

 

  • Message from Pastor:
    • East Sixth Street, I love you and miss seeing your faces. For this month, let pick up on efforts to check on one another. All of us are not phone talkers and we are not going in one another's homes now. Therefore, I am asking that you reach out to three members not in your circle and check on them; let them know that you miss seeing them; if there is anything they may need help them with it. 
  •  Thank you to those who have volunteered to sponsor Refuge Homeless children. The list has come in and we will be getting the children's list to you this week. This year the party will be December 12, 2020. We will need to get the gifts by December 10 so we can get them delivered to the location.
  • We are doing a special offering for those East Sixth Street families with Christmas needs. Please make a donation to this offering by putting "Christmas Gift" on your envelope  or online through "Givelify" in the comment section. Paypal "comment section" is not working at this time. We will collect Christmas Gift offering until November 15, 2020 to allow families to shop or order online for gifts.
  • If any church family is in need of help we want to address those needs first. Please reach out to sister Carmen with your needs for the holidays (thanksgiving and Christmas). We are one family and here to lift one another up.

  Standing Announcements

  • We want to remind all members that the taping of the live service from the sanctuary is limited to participants only at this time due to COVID-19. We are trying to keep all those working  toward bringing the Online worship experience safe from the virus by limiting the number of people in the sanctuary. We appreciate your continued cooperation.

We have been monitoring the numbers and there has been a sharp increase in the numbers of positive Covid 19 cases in Oklahoma. We will continue to watch these numbers carefully. The safety and well being of our church family is our top priority.

The Disciple Women's Fellowship has a Facebook group page. Sister Donna Roberts is our group administrator for the page. She and Sister Sheila Jones, president of Disciple Women,  are looking for great ideas that we can do together virtually while we all stay safe during this pandemic. Please share any ideas of interest you may have with the group. We have already seen recipes, community resources, and inspirational posters. Looking forward to getting together soon. Maybe yoga, quilting, healthy cooking classes, so many ideas. Tell them yours.
