Get to know our Ministries and their Leaders!


A Word from Wade

Wade Burleson

 

Dear Church Family,

Today is Nicole Sallee's last Sunday on our worship staff at Emmanuel. Nicole has done an amazing job as our interim worship leader, and we are thrilled that she will continue to serve as a volunteer in our music ministry at Emmanuel. Nicole has accepted the full-time music teacher's position at Prairie View Elementary, a wonderful school under the direction of our own Clark Koepping. Those of us who've had the privilege of working with Nicole know that the students, parents, and teachers at Prairie View are in for a treat! Thanks, Nicole, for a job well done here at Emmanuel!

Nicole's husband, Brian Sallee, is our new Director of Communications, and he is also stepping into the role of Production Director as well. Zac and Amanda Lorenz are moving to OKC where Amanda will be teaching at Deer Creek and Zac will be working in Information Technology. In the next couple of weeks, we will recognize Zac during all three of our morning services for his four years of service to Emmanuel. If you see either Zac or Nicole in the coming days, please let them know how much you appreciate them and their service to our church.

Two new series - When Relationships Crumble and Why the Cross? - are set to begin August 6 and August 16 respectively. For more information on these Sunday morning and Wednesday night Bible series, check out our website at www.emmanuelenid.org.

Mission Enid

Thank you for your prayers for our students and leaders working at Mission Enid. We are partnering with Forgotten Ministries to do different mission work around the city of Enid from Vacation Bible School to sharing our faith with strangers to cleaning projects. It is a highlight for me as the student pastor to see our students finish their summer serving Christ and His people. God is good!

Hi Ladies,

We are on Week 7 of our Summer Bible Study, "Proven, Where Christ's Abundance Meets our Great Need" by Jennie Allen. This study has focused on passages from the Gospel of John.

This week we look at Grace: The End of Shame and John 13 which is the story of Jesus washing His disciples' feet.

A few hours after Jesus washed their feet, He chose to die on the cross to wash all our filth and dirt away. In one violent, costly act, He washed us of all our sin. We were needy, and Christ became sin and paid the penalty of that sin so that we would be with Him forever. His blood in exchange for ours. Repent and believe. We are not defined by our worst or our best; we are defined by our God.

We will complete this study next week which has been so good! I've loved getting to know the ladies better this summer.

Be watching for updates soon on our new Fall Bible Studies starting the end of August!

Missions Ministry

Justin Jackson

 

Emmanuel Enid Family,

The Gospel leads non-believers to Christ and the believer deeper in his or her love for Christ. We see the beauty, perfection, and glory of God which leads our hearts to brokenness and repentance. The Gospel says we can never measure up, but Christ has come to measure up for us.

At the heart of missions here at Emmanuel Enid, we long to introduce people to the Good News of Jesus Christ. We do so here locally in Enid, across the United States, and even around the world. Please be in prayer for our mission teams and how you might get involved in sharing the Good News with those around you!

Production Ministry

Changes

Your Production Director of the past five years, Zac Lohrenz, is moving to OKC with his wife, Amanda. Zac will be working in Information Technology, and Amanda will be teaching at Deer Creek. He has done a great job here and always pushed us to excellence! If you see him, be sure to thank him for everything he has done, and wish him good luck in his new endeavors.

Moving forward, I will be absorbing the responsibilities of the Production Director. I am very excited about the opportunities this opens, and I'm looking forward to serving Emmanuel in new ways!

VOLUNTEERS!

The production ministry is a team effort, and we are need of team players! If you have ever been interested in production here at Emmanuel, we would love to have you join our team. No previous knowledge or experience is required. We can teach you everything you need to know.

Positions that need to be filled every week:

Sound, Lighting, Camera Operators, Camera Switcher, and Graphics.

Celebrate Recovery

We all have something to work through!

Celebrate Recovery (CR) provides a meaningful way for people to come together and share in their struggles with "hurts, habits, and hang-ups." CR meets on Thursday evenings beginning at 5:15 for an optional fellowship meal time followed by a large group time of worship, teaching, and sharing at 6:00. After the large group worship, we separate into “Open Share Groups” which are gender and issue specific support groups, and a “Newcomers Group” for individuals who are new to CR to help them understand how the program works.

Come and let us celebrate recovery together!

Long-Range Planning

At Emmanuel Christian School we strive to partner with our school families. Specifically, in regard to long-range planning.

For many within society, long-range planning for their children only includes what college they might attend or what type of job they might obtain upon graduation. At ECS, our long-range planning with parents includes not only preparing students for this life, it also includes preparing their child for eternal life through faith in Christ.

Thank you, Emmanuel family for being a part of that long-range plan!
