You know you are a Senior Adult Minister if you know how to spell Foliage. Never had a reason to use this word until I started planning Fall Foliage trips for Senior Adults!
Sam's & Sal's Foliage trip will be October 27, with a stop in Siloam Springs at the Dayspring outlet store. Details to come very soon.
CAPTURE THE VISION:
Total received is as of October 12, 2016.
STAFF Appreciation Month
October is STAFF Appreciation Month. In the foyer, you will find a box where you can leave notes, cards, etc. to our MHBC staff. These items will be distributed to their intended recipients throughout the month. Let's show our love and support for these dear folks, who do so much for us and our families during the year.
MHBC Nursing Home Music Ministry
Meet at MHBC, 1st & 3rd Tuesdays at 10am, ride bus to (2) local nursing homes, approximately 1-1 1/2 hrs. Be a blessing and receive a blessing in return. Join us as we gather together and make a joyful noise unto the Lord.
MHBC HOMECOMING SERVICE
The September 18th Homecoming Celebration at Memorial Heights Baptist saw the return of 35 former MHBC members.
Between songs of praise and worship attendees were given the opportunity to share MHBC memories. Some shared their time of salvation, others what a difference MHBC had made at various points in their lives and/or the lives of their families.
During the service, statistical information was gathered from those in attendance on this particular day.

Baptized = 57
Married = 16
Called into Ministry = 03
Homegoing Service Held for Family = 64
Former Staff = 0
Former Employees = 06

As we near the final services, at our current location, we will be doing many things for "the last time" at 1500 W. Will Rogers Blvd. Tonight, Sunday, July 31, 2016 was "the last time" we will have a 5th Sunday PraiSing. It was a WONDERFUL service that clearly conveyed the message of Christ through songs, poems and readings.
Let the Packing Begin...
While a specific date has not yet been set for the last service at our current location, SAMS & SALS (Senior Adult Men and Senior Adult Ladies) have begun packing up some of their items, to be stored off site. During the transition, items will be stored in members homes, storage sheds and garages. WE'VE ONLY JUST BEGUN...
PRAY, PRAY, PRAY and if you have available, ground level space available for use, please contact the Church office (918) 341-5952.
Groundbreaking - AT LAST...
MHBC Charter Member, Dee Lamb, turned up the first shovel of dirt, representing MHBC's PAST, during Groundbreaking ceremony at the new location site, 06/26/16.
Contract Approved for Sale of Property
By a vote of 175 Yes to 5 No (97%), the membership of MHBC voted to accept a contract for the purchase of theMHBC building/property at 1500 W. Will Rogers Blvd., Claremore, OK. The buyer has up to 150 days to get with the city and make sure that the property can be brought up to code and that it is in fact large enough to accommodate their needs. They have spent a lot of time checking out specifics already, but still have the option to withdraw the contract should they for some unforseen reason choose to do so.
We serve an on-time God and are continuing to PRAY, PRAY, PRAY for His direction as we move forward in our service to Him.
In the meantime, the MHBC Summer programs will go on as scheduled.
If you are interested in praying for the service during worship time, please see Jeannette.
A Friendly Reminder: If you have any changes to your mailing address, e-mail address or phone numbers, please contact the church office so that we don't lose track of you--thank you!
