Letter From Mitch

letter to church 18 March 2020

We Invite You to Join us for Lent and Easter


Let Me Remember…

On Easter morning as I awake,
I recall memories that make me quake,
For long ago on Calvary,
My Jesus died to set me free;

I’ll never really understand,
Why God made such as a wondrous plan,
That When He saw a humble man,
Jesus fulfilled God’s perfect plan;

The Crown of thorns upon His head,
The blood that for my soul He shed,
The cries of pain and agony,
It was all to set this captive free;

In life and death he bore my pain,
To make a way that life I’d gain,
And when He comes for us again,
The plan of God will be made plain;

Those nail- scarred hands and feet,
Were all for us to stop defeat,
For now our soul can soar with Him,
The final Battle we will win;

My eyes will I lift to heaven above,
To catch a glimpse of God’s divine love,
Our flight will end in heaven I know…

Church-wide exploration and prayer

The Lenten Day of Prayer will prepare our hearts and minds for Holy Week leading to Easter. It will not only offer time for private contemplation but also hands-on interaction with various prayer practices. No experience necessary! Walk the labyrinth, create, read scripture, and encounter God in new ways. Come as you are. Come anytime throughout the day from 6:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m.. Stay as long or short as your schedule permits. Parents, there will be hands-on prayer experiences for you and your children to share together! Start them early learning the spiritual discipline of prayer while having fun! Our seasonal Prayer Days are essential for the spiritual well-being of our souls.

Lenten Book Study

The Spiritual Formation Committee is trying something new! This year instead of a Lenten Retreat they will be studying the book “We Are Beloved: A Lenten Journey with Protestant Prayer Beads.” This 6-week Lenten journey follows stories of Jesus’ experience of God’s love. The books and prayer beads will be available in the office the first week of March to be read during Lent. On Saturday, March 28, we will meet at 9:30 a.m. for discussion of the book and brunch lasting no more than three hours. .If you think you are interested in participating in the book study, please call the office (341-3300) to reserve a copy of the book

Urban Mission’s Summer SPARK Program

The project is Urban Mission’s Summer SPARK program (Support Program of Art and Reading for Kids), a day-long kids program during the summer vacation period from school. The focus of the summer program is reading. The kids involved in the summer program IMPROVED their reading scores over the summer months, at a time when many kids lower their reading scores. The kids come from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. The OKC Metropolitan Library system sends a staff member to share books with the kids. Reading tutors are needed to help read with the kids during the summer months. The summer program also includes some field trips to places of interest. Click here for more information.  We encourage members and SFPC groups (i.e., Sunday School classes and Circles) to donate money towards sponsorship of a child who attends this summer program. There is an “Easter Tree” in the narthex with eggs in various dollar amounts for sponsorships. Please consider taking an egg to make a donation and give a child an opportunity to participate in the SPARK program.
