We will gather on September 9 to celebrate a milestone in the life of Church of the Servant. The 50th
anniversary of our great church is just around the corner and I am so excited for this special day! A lot will be happening on campus and I know I mentioned the big day last month, but here are a few more details…
• Three morning worship services will be offered on September 9 – 8:15 Chapel, 9:30 Celebration Service & 11:00 Modern Worship. If you normally attend the 9:30 Modern service, please plan to join us in the 9:30 Celebration Center service.
• Rev. Dr. Norman Neaves, our founding Pastor, will have a special part as we open the 9:30 Celebration Service. Bishop Jimmy Nunn will bring official greetings and congratulations from the Annual Conference.
• A birthday party for the church will be held throughout the morning. Special events for children and youth, plus cake. Yes, cake for everyone!
The theme of the 50-year celebration will be Celebrating our Past/Preparing for our Future. The day will certainly be a day of great story, celebration and friendship. Not only will we celebrate, we will also begin to prepare for our future together. I have learned so much since arriving in Oklahoma City in June of 2017, and I am ready to begin to share a vision for our future together – a future that complements
our past while striving to serve our community in an ever-changing, 21st century world.
To enable me to begin to share what I have discovered and to articulate our future vision, I will be hosting Vision Cast meetings for five weeks on every Sunday afternoon beginning September 16. As we celebrate fifty years of life together, we will also begin to look at the road ahead. I cannot wait to share with you where I believe God is calling Church of the Servant to continue to serve OKC.
