RESTORATION & MEMBERSHIPS

 

  Last Sunday morning, William (Bill) and Billie Horton responded to the Lord’s invitation.  In a written statement, they expressed their desire to place membership by saying, “You are such a happy and friendly congregation devoted to the work of the church.  We would like to be a part of this.”  The Horton’s also stated in their letter, “We have been negligent in our lives as Christians, and request your prayers that we may be forgiven for our transgressions and granted a place in the work of our Lord.”  What a courageous response and heartfelt confession.  We gladly welcome them to our church family.  William and Billie are the parents of Lecia Jones.  They live at 9 Fairview Lane, 74804.  Phone number is 273-2311.

 

  Doris Quisenberry requested to be considered a member at Central this past Sunday morning.  She lives in the Aldridge Apartments, 20 E. 9th, #410, Shawnee, OK 74801.  Her phone number is 275-4044.  Doris comes to us from the  College Hill congregation in Hillsboro, Texas.  She came to Shawnee to be closer to family.  As her church family, we welcome her and are eager to become well acquainted. 


SUNDAY AFTERNOON

 

  The worship and Centennial opportunities will conclude for most Central members with the time capsule at about 3:30 to 3:45.  However there will be a devotional service at five o’clock for those wishing to observe the Lord’s Supper.
