Happy Birthday to ______!
What if no one remembered your birthday… which is often for our city's homeless population. On March 18, John 3:16 Mission will host their annual birthday party for the homeless.
You can help by donating birthday cards (homemade or store bought—sign only your first name), candy, blankets, gloves, hats, new socks or underwear, which they will win by various carnival party games. Look for a collection box in the lobby where you can leave your cards and gifts. Questions? Call Susan Randall, 918.640.6343.
Prayer for Our Pastors ~ A 30 Day Challenge
Your prayers are the greatest gift you can give to our pastors. On March 23 & 30 you will have the opportunity to pledge your commitment to pray for 30 days for our pastors, their families and our church. No meetings, just commitment by your sign–up. In return, you will receive information to help guide your prayer time.
