A Word from Wade

 

Wade Burleson

 

Dear Church Family,

Our mission statement as a church is simple: We exist to bring the message of grace to a fallen world. Everything we do revolves around this mission, including community, worship, teaching, serving, and missions. The message of grace is found in the Person and work of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. People will experience His love through our love for them. We make tanglible the truth.

The Ford's testimony in our services will highlight the importance of community. We desire that every person who attends one of Emmanuel's worship services to also be involved in community weekly. We call this the ABC's of membership - Attend a worship service, Belong to community, and Commit to give. We had several people respond with a desire to help us on our tech team, and we are very appreciative of those who give of their talents and time to help us take the message of grace to a fallen world.

The message this Sunday is from the gospel of Luke. When we finish our study from Luke, we will have spent four and a half years in this wonderful book, which will surpass the book of Romans. When we finish (Memorial Day 2018), we will make available full outlines in book form of the entire series from Luke. Today we will examine a wonderful parable Jesus told in Luke 19.

Worship Ministry

Brian Bailey

 

Church Family,

Thanks for your prayers for Kara and me as we attended the first annual Getty Music worship conference in Nashville, TN this week. It was an encouraging time of worship, Bible teaching, refreshing, and edification. Kara and I both left tired from the busy schedule of the three days we were there but excited for what the Lord spoke to us while we were in Nashville!

I look forward to worshiping with you on Sunday and seeing how God moves in our midst!

Run.

"The name of the Lord is a strong fortress; the godly RUN TO HIM and are safe."

- Proverbs 18:10

If you ever see someone running towards something, you know it's urgent. Walking towards something shows less urgency. Maybe this is why the phrase "run to Him" is used in the above scripture. We must make time daily to run to Christ. He is our peace, joy, love, and sustaining power. Run!

Parents!

"Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light to my path."

- Psalm 119:105

When we read the Bible and do what it says, it’s like we turn the lights on. We don’t have to stumble around in the dark, hoping we don’t injure ourselves. The Bible is full of principles that guide us toward smarter decisions and a better life.

Missions Ministry

Justin Jackson

 

Emmanuel Enid Family,

Emmanuel’s heartbeat as a church is Grace. Grace is God giving to us (sinners) what we don’t deserve which is salvation. Our mission as a church is to present to the broken world the Good News that God has come to save sinners like us. Our ministry and missions operate with this motivation. We want others to hear the same Good News that we have heard and experience the same saving grace that we have experienced. We take this message of grace to the lost in Enid and around the world. If you are interested in being a part of our mission here at Emmanuel, please let us know. We are planning trips to Niger, Guatemala, and Poland for 2018. We are excited how the Lord is going to use us as a church in the years to come!

Men's Ministry

Greg Shamburg

 

Men!

I believe people tend to think of leadership only in terms of action. But leadership is not just something you do; it’s something you are. This is why leaders have such a strong magnetism. People are attracted to great leaders just as people are attracted to Jesus. HE is the bar for leadership.

Production Ministry

Brian Sallee

 

What's Your Mindset?

There is a certain mindset one needs to adopt when working in ministry, and especially in production. You must truly have a servant's heart, and want to see others succeed. It can sometimes be too easy to get caught up in your own world and lose sight of the big picture and how your actions (and inactions) affect others. When you adopt a servant mindset, you quickly realize that others' successes are your successes!

If you think you might like to get involved in the production side of worship here at Emmanuel, step out of your comfort zone and come see me! You can also shoot me a quick This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or call the church office at (580) 237-0602. I would love to get you plugged in! We have volunteer positions for mixing sound, running lights, operating cameras, and more!

Emmanuel Christian School

Dr. Stephen Glazier

 

A People of Prayer

Since 1981, Emmanuel Christian School students have started each day with praise and worship. It is a time to give honor to the God that created us and sent his Son to save us.

Next Wednesday, the students, parents, and teachers of ECS will be joining together with students from across the globe in prayer during the annual See You At The Pole event. This event began in 1990 with only ten students praying at their school. Today there are over two million students in over twenty countries that gather together in prayer.

We would like to invite all our parents, grandparents, and school friends to come and gather with the ECS students as we pray for our school, our community, and our leaders. I hope to see you at the pole next Wednesday!

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!
