Marilyn’s Moment

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Marilyn’s Moment:Why do you come to worship?  Hopefully, it is out of a deep need to honor the God who made you and provided everything for you.  Though different people have different provision we know this stems from our uniqueness!  God’s created children are all one-of-a-kind with needs, desires, and requirements belonging solely to each one. The reason we worship also includes our longing to fulfill the command to fully learn and practice worshipping God in spirit and in truth.  I admit, some services of worship are better at this than others, plus the unique need of every individual discovers distinctive ways...

Marilyn's Moment

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Marilyn’s Moment:It was a touch ironic that after writing about how much I like to write in our October 25th newsletter that I missed the deadline for the first of November’s editions!  The challenge to be onboard with the many activities and new friends being made at Moore must have confused my deadline-oriented brain.  So, let’s try once again! Was your Thanksgiving all you hoped it would be?  (If not, give thanks now!)  Did you find time to truly give thanks without immediately immersing yourself in Black Friday deals that started long before Friday?  (If you didn’t, what’s wrong with right now? ...

Marilyn's Moment

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Marilyn's Moment:Writing is an enjoyment of my life.  Ever since a High School teacher inspired confidence in me whenever he assigned a ‘Minute to Muse’ ad lib surprise topic to the class with five additional minutes allowed to write.  I remember the first time my composition was selected to be read to the class and ‘pride’ became one of my middle names!  Yet, it wasn’t a pride that I flaunted (because it took several other attempts before another composition was selected), it was a pride that encouraged, built up, lifted me to keep-on-keeping-on! Looking back, I think that creative writing teacher has...

Marilyn's Moment

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Marilyn's Moment: By way of introduction:  I am a Rocky Mountain girl! Now you can laugh because though born and raised in Colorado, I haven't lived there since 1988 when John and I were transplanted to Ponca City, OK. You push the numbers and discover that if you take out six years spent in Texas for school/work I have been an Okie longer than a Coloradan! Yet, roots are roots for all of us. The next ‘root’ comes with the confession: “I am a sinner just like everyone else!”  This is not a laughable matter, yet it is a thing to...

"How Lucky"

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
A.A. Milne once wrote, “How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”  No words could be truer right now as I try to write this final message to you.  This goodbye would be easy if things were not so good, or if you all had not been so loving and supportive; if there had been some big dispute, or trouble on the horizon; but that is not the case at all.  Paul and I are truly blessed that this goodbye is so hard, because that means we have made some great friends, and have had some...

Summer Opportunities

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
   The lazy days of summer are not so lazy at FCC Moore!!  I am excited to share with you a couple of opportunities we are currently working on.  First is our Summer Contemplative Services.  This coming Sunday, June 27th at 6:00 p.m. (following the All-Church Watermelon Social), we will have our first Contemplative Service.  This will be an opportunity to tune out the clamor of the world around us, quiet our souls, and soak in the things of the Lord.  It is a perfect way to end the Sabbath and begin the new week.  I hope you can join us.  Second is Pastor’s Class.  All God’s...

"Thank You"

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
I hope you all had a wonderful Holy Week/ Easter.  My jaws hurt so much from smiling as it was so wonderful to see you (including some of you I had not seen in quite a while). All felt right as we were finally together again. As I mentioned in the sermon on Sunday, this is indeed a resurrection of the Body of Christ, and I am so excited to see how we will move forward as an Easter people, committed to serving Jesus Christ.  I want to take just a minute to thank those of you who helped prepare for...

Prayer Works!!!

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Hello, Church Family. We are halfway through the first month of 2021, and it has been 10 months since we were ALL worshiping together in person. Even though many of you are receiving your vaccines, we are still isolating to a large degree; and there are still fears and questions about if, how, and when we can return to daily activities as they were pre-pandemic. Pandemic aside, we have other changes going on in our nation with the transfer of power from one President to another, with economic struggles that are inevitable with so many businesses having been shut down (permanently...

Class of 2020 Stephen Ministers

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
The Class of 2020 Stephen Ministers at First Christian Church is nearing completion, with three class sessions left before the class is commissioned on Sunday, September 13, 2020. Our trainees have worked hard, and their dedication is paying off.  The course has involved pre-class reading assignments and in-class lecture, discussion, and role playing. Our trainees are showing some real growth in their knowledge and skills. Skill practicing has been a very valuable component. It takes what was taught each week from the realm of theory and turns it into something practical that can be applied to real-life circumstances. Role-playing can be challenging. ...

Moving Forward

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
MOVING FORWARD!!  I sure have missed seeing each of you, and I am very much looking forward to the day we get to, once again, come together for worship.  As you know, our government leaders have said that churches may begin worshiping together as early as this coming Sunday, and you may have been wondering about our plan for re-assimilation.  Last week, when we began to hear that our civic leaders were planning to ease up on some of the restrictions, I met virtually with our regional minister and other clergy around the state to discuss this matter.  There was a great deal of concern...
