 “Evangelism Outreach at the 2019 Claremore Fair”

Jesus speaking to His disciples: Therefore go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. Matthew 28:19-20”.

As members of the body of Christ we are also commissioned to testify about Jesus to others so that they know Him and will be saved. Once again, we have an opportunity to do mission outreach. The fair this year will be September 12 – 15, 2019. There is a sign-up sheet on the bulleting board in the narthex of our church. There will also be a sign-up sheet for a workday on Tuesday, September 3, 2019 for 9:30 am – 11:30 am. At the fair our set up time is on Wednesday afternoon, September 11, 2019. We will be in our booth September 12 – 15, 2019 from 9:00 am until 9:00 pm

We will be giving out Bibles and information about our church. Please consider helping ! If additional information is needed, please see me!   Marilyn Kirk, Director of Evangelism

If you are participating, we give you thanks, if not please join us. Many Best Choice products are as good as name brands. Please give the UPC symbols to Kathy Fletcher. Thank you.

YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED to a "COME AND GO" RECEPTION HONORING JOHN AND JOAN BUSCH. John and Joan arrived at Camp Lutherhoma in June, 1989. That means they have faithfully served there for over 30 years now! What an impact they have made on all who have been blessed by Lutherhoma's programs. The reception is set for SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7 from 4- 6 P.M. at CHRIST THE REDEEMER LUTHERAN CHURCH (2550 E. 71st St., Tulsa). There will be light food/snacks and drinks.

If you would like to contribute to a gift for John and Joan, there will be opportunity to do so at the reception, or give it to Pastor Burger.

LIBRARY NEWS: Paul, Apostle of Christ by Angela Hunt and based on the screenplay by Andrew Hyatt is a novelization of the motion picture starring Jim Caviezel and James Faulkner.

Paul survived many hardships in his life and was imprisoned in this story. He was held in Nero’s bleakest cell in Rome and was waiting execution (Nero was determined to get rid of the Christians living in Rome). Paul was haunted by his past and wondered if anyone remembered him.

Luke, Paul’s friend and physician visited Paul in prison but risked his life every time he did.

Luke resolved to write a book which told of “The Way” – the beginning of the Christian church.

Books donated over the summer were from – Mary Slater, Ruth Ritter, Cyndi Smith, Kathy Iwanaga, Mary Jo Rostek and Heidi Katzer’s sister for the beautiful Bible.

The Junior High Confirmation class will start September 11. 2019. Please notice the time change this year. The classes will start at 4:30 until 6:00 pm. Please make every effort to attend each class. If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Ryan.
