Your gifts for the new construction project can be given by using the ‘Building Fund Offering Envelopes’ that are in the hymnal holders, on the table as you enter the sanctuary, or by writing a check to ‘Redeemer Lutheran Church’ (please write ‘Building Fund’ on the memo line). Thank you!!

You don’t have to be “seasoned” to enjoy good food & fellowship!

Ken & Karen Haskell & Darrel & Suzanne Pralle will be hosting May’s Seasoned Saints at noon on the 8th. Bring a potluck food item and a friend! Last month we had 20 Seasoned Saints enjoy food and fellowship!

100th Anniversary

Greetings in the name of Jesus, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

It is my joy and delight to extend to you, dear Christian, an invitation to the upcoming celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Oklahoma District of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. The people of St. John’s – Okarche are both honored and thrilled to host this momentous event! Please note some key dates and times below:

What: 100th Anniversary Celebration of the OK District, LCMS

When: Sunday, May 19th, 2024, 4 PM service, 5:30 PM Dinner

Where: St. John’s Lutheran Church, 408 W Colorado, Okarche, OK, 73762

Our theme verse for the celebration is taken from Psalm 28:7, “The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.”

Truly, the strength, protection, and help of the Lord have carried our beloved district as part of the Lord’s Church for the last 100 years. One reason we wish to gather this May is to remember the Lord’s goodness toward His people here in Oklahoma

We will sing “The Church’s One Foundation” as we worship together in May. Allow me to close with the first verse of this beloved hymn:

The Church's one foundation is Jesus Christ Her Lord;

She is His new creation by water and the Word.

From heaven He came and sought Her to be His holy bride;

With His own blood He bought Her, and for Her life He died

Christ’s peace be with you,

Pastor Joel Heckmann

Senior Pastor, St. John’s Lutheran Church – Okarche, OK
