Hey Wildwood Family!
Yes, I know it’s just November 11th, but it FEELS like Christmas. The average high in OKC on December 25th is 46 degrees. As I type this it’s 39 degrees. See, it does feel like Christmas!
Speaking of Christmas, at Wildwood we have two great opportunities before us. First, would be the opportunity to help join the team for the Mission Norman Christmas Shoppe (where we aim to touch the lives of some 600 underprivileged kids). There are SO many ways to play a part, from donating funds, to purchasing gifts for underprivileged kids, to joining one of the setup, cleanup, or shopping teams. All the information (including signups) can be found at wildwodchurch.org/missionnorman Let’s do it!
Second, we have a unique way this year to invite folks to attend some of our Christmas services. Pastor Mark will be sharing more about this on Sunday, but it involves picking up a quick read book (we’ve ordered a bundle) entitled, The Four Emotions of Christmas (authored by a friend of mine from FamilyLife, Bob Lepine), and then, in turn, passing it on as an invitational tool to your neighbors and friends. What a cool idea! Listen as Mark shares about the plan.
I am VERY excited about this Sunday’s message as we conclude our series, God Behind the Seen, by unpacking chapter 4 of Ruth, and more! As previously, please read through chapter 4 (only 22 verses) before Sunday. As we conclude we will pull back and think through some further reflections related to God’s Providence. I can’t wait.
See you Sunday!
