July 29, 2016: Pastor Wiggs' Word of the Week: INSPIRATION
Our July Revival singing has one more Sunday to go! We have enjoyed the wonderful music and entered into some significant discussions about your theological questions. I trust your faith is being stimulated to grow, flourish and deepen. I hope you will be with us this Sunday to help us finish strong!
Your theological questions helped me shape our sermon series, Does Anything Go? This week we come to the most asked question: How Do I Tell the Difference Between My Thoughts and God’s Inspiration? We will read from Luke 22:39-46. It describes a poignant scene of Jesus praying in the Garden of Gethsemane. It will serve as the foundation for our exploration of this most common of questions among us.
Thanks to all of you who have been praying that we might experience revival here at Boston Avenue this month. We have had guests attend our church for the first time, and others who have made the decision to officially join us and participate fully in the life of our church. We are honored that they have come and that God can use us in helping people find their place in the family of God.
Many of us have been able to take some wonderful vacation time, but if you are back in town I encourage you to be with us in worship Sunday morning at 8:30 or 11:00 a.m.!
Cast members showcase humor, song and dance in Anything Goes!
The cast members of Anything Goes invite you to join them for the 34th annual Broadway at Boston Avenue performance, continuing this Thursday night at 7:00 p.m. in Community Hall!
The show, written about a love triangle aboard the S.S. American ocean liner, promises to be full of humor! It tells the story of a group of unlikely characters including a stowaway, a nightclub singer/evangelist, a wealthy couple, a criminal and a sidekick.
The musical, written by Cole Porter, features upbeat songs such as, “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “All Through the Night,” and “You’re the Top.” It has been referred to as one of the greatest scores of its period, running roughly 700 performances in New York and London.
Performance dates are as follows:
Thursday, July 28 at 7:00 p.m.
Friday, July 29 at 7:00 p.m.
Sunday, July 31 at 2:30 p.m.
All tickets are reserved seating and cost $10 each. Cash, checks, and credit cards are accepted. Group rates are also available.
Tickets are available on Sunday mornings in Bishops’ Hall. They can also be purchased on weekdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. by calling 918-699-0138 or visiting the table outside Community Hall.
Free childcare is available with advanced reservation. Contact Paula Gradney-Garner at 918-699-0128 to make reservations.
Come be part of one of the most special traditions at Boston Avenue and see all the hard work of so many of our congregation members! You won’t want to miss this funny, light-hearted musical!
July mission emphasis ends soon and our work isn’t done yet - the kids at Cookson need your help!
“More kids than ever are showing up at the Cookson Hills Mission Center,” says Debbie Humphrey, Interim Director.
Many of the children and youth who participate in programs at Cookson Hills live with food scarcity, meaning there is no food in their houses at least once a week, and often by the end of the month, they have run out completely.
The children who come to the mission center range in age from six to eighteen. They live in remote, rural areas, where opportunities and resources are few. While at the center, the kids play basketball, learn arts and crafts, enjoy cultural outings, and have devotional time. Most importantly, Cookson Hills provides food for them through the Pack-N-Snack program.
During summer vacation and on weekends during the school year, no daily school lunch means children are at an increased risk of experiencing hunger. The Pack-N-Snack program works to ensure the children and youth can spend their summers and weekends being kids, rather than worrying about finding food for themselves and their siblings.
Let’s end our July Mission Emphasis Month on a strong note by collecting a record number of items this Sunday in Bishops’ Hall! Make it your mission this week to pick up a few of the needed items for the Cookson Hills kids.
