Rainy Day Thoughts

As I watched the weather forcast this week, I am aware that the weatherman is not always right. As of this writing, rain has not showed up as expected. Oh, sure a shower here and there, but not the storms predicted. I have always loved rainy days. I appreciate the water for our lawns, lakes, streams, etc. But just enjoy the occassional cloudy, rainy day. God is such a God of variety, making no two snowflakes, seashells, animals or people alike. I guess it goes that no two days are alike either. I am thankful for the variety of His plan and the stability of His promises.By:DeeSamford

YOUTH

“Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker” (Psalm 95:6)

We often experience spiritual “highs” after attending meaningful worship events or other emotional experiences like camps or retreats, but after the emotion wears off, often we return to life as normal. Isaiah had an incredible “spiritual high” experience, but it resulted in lifelong service to God. We need to understand that God’s holiness never fades, even when we aren’t experiencing it in an emotional way. As a result, God’s holiness calls us to continual worship and service.

Summer Schedule

• Cornerstone @ Oklahoma Christian (Middle School) – June 25th – 30th ($100)

• Vacation Bible School – July 9th – 12th

• Tulsa Inner City Mission – July 23rd – 28th ($75)

***Scholarships needed. Our congregation helps shoulder part of the cost of each of the camps for every student; however some students are still in need of full or partial scholarships. If you can help out with a full or partial scholarship please see Lane. Thank you for your support of the Chandler Street Youth Ministry.

VBS is coming!

Be sure to mark your calendars for Vacation Bible School, July 9th-12th. There are signup sheets in the foyer for teachers, helpers, etc. Please sign and let Lane know you are planning help. Let’s make this year another wonderful experience for the children attending.

Teachers Workshop: A workshop for teachers, ministers, and church leaders will be held at Cameron Road Church of Christ; in Austin, Texas, July 21-22. The keynote speaker will be Kirk Eason. More information is on the bulletin board in the foyer.

Smiles for a Child:

Many of you participate in Smiles for a Child each year. This is the program that sends shoeboxes filled with items for Christmas to Nicaragua. These are sent off in September in order for them to arrive in time for Christmas. There is a pamphlet on the bulletin board, in the foyer, with more information. This maybe a good time to start gathering items to avoid an extra expense all at one time. Several individuals or a small group can go in together to fill a box or several boxes. Also, be saving your shoeboxes to ship them in.

There are no Spiritual Reflections this week.
