A Message from our Pastor

I have often heard travelers say they have a rule about restaurants.  The rule is “never stop at a restaurant where there are no cars.”  Go where the people are.  People looking for a church have a similar thought.  If they walk into a service, they want to be surrounded by others.  They may not want to be crowded, but they don’t want to feel alone.  A room for worship needs a “critical mass’ of people.

That is why we are seeking to recruit 30 people who will commit to our West campus and 30 people who will commit to the Church at Fort Sill.  We have many faithful volunteers at these two campuses, but we have not yet reached a tipping point in our attendance.  We believe strongly in the mission of our multi-site approach.  I am asking you to pray about making the commitment to go and serve at one of our campuses for 2016.

On Sunday, November 29, I have a special guest coming to our pulpit as part of my “COEXIST?” series.  Johnnie Moore has written one of the most important books of 2015.  He is the author of “Defying ISIS.”  In light of the recent events in Paris, his visit with us could not be timelier.  I want to encourage you to be here on Nov. 29.

My friend, Dr. Paul Negrut, the President of Emanuel University in Oradea, Romania wanted for me to extend to you his gratitude.  He appreciates our commitment to missions by supporting the university.  I taught 2nd year theology students the book of Romans and preached 4 times.  Rod Payne trained the media team for the university and did a great deal of work on their new media equipment.  Thank you for your prayers as we traveled.
