Pentecost Sunday is seen as the birth of the Church. This Sunday we want to encourage you to wear red, orange or any color that reminds us of when the Holy Spirit came into the upper room and inspired the people to not keep the resurrection story to themselves but share the stories all over the world.

Worship is online and in-person at 10 a.m.

As most of you know Pastor Matt Franks will be moving to Colorado to serve in the Mountain Sky Annual Conference. Matt’s last Sunday to deliver a sermon to us will be on June 5th.

We will have a reception for him and his family in the atrium after church. The cost of moving is always expensive and the conference will only cover part of the cost. If you would like to help Matt and his family with the cost you may make a donation by placing something on a card or you may give it directly to the church; earmarking it for Pastor Franks moving fund. There will be a basket for cards/donations at the reception.

On June 26th Reverend Shana dry will deliver her first sermon as our Lead Pastor. We are very excited and blessed that the Bishop and Cabinet selected Shana for Tahlequah First United Methodist Church as her first full-time appointment.

There will be a reception for Shana and her family after service on that Sunday. I know that she will need some help with moving and also some meals prepared for the following weeks as she accepts the “baton” as our spiritual leader.

If you could bake/purchase cookies for either or both of these events; please contact Sueann Freeman. Her number is (918)931-2587 or you can let her know after any service on Sundays. She is asking for 3-4 dozen cookies from each volunteer. If we have any cookies leftover we will use them at Feed My Sheep.
