Mothers, We Thank You

Mother's Day approaches, a day that is truly special. Of course, I enjoy Father's Day myself, but Mother's Day should be especially important to Baptists overall. After several years of ministry prior to coming here, I stand convinced that if it weren't for the tireless efforts of Baptist women, that many churches would have ceased to exist long ago. Pastors, music leaders, and church elders lead the congregation in their own important roles, I know, but it's a matter of fact that much of impacting ministry work comes as expressions from the hearts of women. The New Testament is filled with stories of men who were integral in the formation of Christ's church, but there are many women who made a profound impact on the church's earliest days. That proud heritage continues today, as I see the valuable service that our Oak Grove ladies give to their Lord through their efforts in this church.

 

I have a mother, wife, grandmothers, and other family members that I will personally celebrate that day, but I write this now to all of our incredible ladies here at Oak Grove as a deep expression of thanks. For the time spent, prayers prayed, classes taught, meals prepared, and love shared with people inside and outside of this church, I thank you. I see it on a weekly basis, but even if I didn't and others didn't, everything done in the name of the Lord is known by Him. Keep on serving Jesus with all the energy and effectiveness that you already do! He makes it all worth it.

Oklahoma Spring

Spring is here.  There is new grass to mow, limbs to trim, and spring flowers popping up all over.  Although these signs are appreciated by most everyone, most of us suffer from that Southeast Oklahoma affliction called allergies.  We mow – we sneeze; we smell the flowers – we sneeze, and don’t forget coughing, too.  It’s an Oklahoma thing.  Just go along with it.

It’s life in Choctaw County.  We love spring.  We plant vegetable gardens and flowers and trees.  We enjoy the sunsets and the seasonal rainstorms that pass.  But we keep a careful eye in the clouds.  There are occasions where the clouds get all muddled up and a terrible storm will come out of it.  These are called tornados and we don’t like these at all.  God in His infinite wisdom has created all things for good.  We don’t quite get the tornado thing, but God made it, so it is good according to His purposes.  Genesis 8:22 tells us that seasons and weather were created by God for man.

This a new year.  The Sunday School program at Oak Grove continues to grow in number and contacts.  God is blessing this congregation in a mighty way.  We invite you to come to Sunday School.  Bring your children, grandchildren, husbands and wives.  The Holy Bible is taught in all classes.  Come.  We have a place just for you.  See you in Sunday School.

In truth and love,

Dennis
