I received an email from Michelle the other day. She was writing to say hello to her friends at Sapulpa First UMC. You will recall that Michelle was our administrative assistant for two years before moving to New York to work for a magazine. Well, I was blown away when she told me that she is now residing in Vietnam and teaching English as a second language to pre-school and Kindergarten children. Wow, what a life change; but she sounds incredibly happy. Keep her in your prayers as she continues in her journey of service. She is a special young lady and I am so glad to hear that she is doing well.
In Christ, Pastor Allen
Handel's Messiah, presented by the Sapulpa High School choir and alumni, is always a highlight of our Advent season. Last night was no exception. What a wonderful performance was shared by all. Special thanks to: Gina Myers (conductor), Suzanne Law (harpsichordist), Bruce Wilkin (Organist), and the Blue Blazed Marvels and Alumni of Sapulpa High School!
Our new sign is almost ready to go. Workers at setting it up this morning. By mid-week we should be operational!
What a blessing our Angle Tree will be to so many this Christmas season. Thank you to all who responded, shopped, and brought gifts to bless some children with special needs in our community!
Thank you Sam Harlin, Emily Wagner, and Ashley Thompson for the wonderful update you shared last week regarding your experience at the CYCM (a leadership training event for youth). While at this event, each of these young ladies were able to take basic and advanced courses for their certification as Lay Servants. What an amazing thing to have so many Certified Lay Servants in this church and what is even more amazing is how many of our Lay Servants are from our Youth Group! You are examples for us all!
