Wednesday Youth & Children Service Times Change

Posted by Rick on August 16, 2016

IMPORTANT NOTICE!!!! Starting August 24, Wednesday youth and children services will begin at 6:30, due to the extended time Wagoner Schools have changed this year. Children will eat a light supper; youth will go immediately into praise and worship. If a youth wants to eat, they can come a little bit early, or if they ride the bus, they can eat, then go into the service. If you have any questions, please ask John or Bonnie Couch, Dean Haley, or Rick Boyne.

Danger Notice!

Posted by Rick on July 25, 2016

I was just made aware of a dangerous situation. The recent wind storm has downed some electric wires at the back of the church. Tom Roberts called to tell me that the city told him that the wires were still live. They told him that they were stacked up and will get to it as soon as possible.

In the meantime, I have posted danger signs on the pole and am writing you to bring your attention to this. Please do not let children play around this pole, and please do not try to move them yourself. The ends of the wire are covered, but they are still live.

ISBC Falls Creek Report

Posted by Rick on June 13, 2016

2016 group (small)

Pathfinders attended the first week of the 2016 Falls Creek Camp Season, June 6-10. We rented the Soldier Creek cabin which served our needs quite well. Out of 28 students who attended, 2 were saved, 1 was rededicated, 2 came for baptism, and one surrendered to ministry!

We had 5 students serve on the Decision Team and assisted other students with salvation, re-dedications, and other other decisions.

We had 8 adult sponsors and were able to make use of our new buses. Sponsor Kim Stevens, the head cook, won first place in the 2016 Week One Falls Creek Bake Off, Breads Division!

Kim Stevens

Last night, those who were able to make it to church, gave a verbal report. The pastor was quoted as saying “It was the best Falls Creek report I’ve ever seen.”

Zona Tillman was elected by acclamation to lead ISBC’s Cookie Ministry Team at the regular July monthly business meeting last night.  Zona has a passion for evangelism and will be a breath of fresh air to this important ministry.

Ladies of the church prepare cookies in sacks that contain Gospel tracts and distribute them at the Wagoner County Jail once a month. Inmates have written to indicate that they have been saved because of this ministry.

2015 VBS Report

Posted by Rick on June 9, 2015

2015 VBS has come and gone and it will be known as a “success!”

We had 92 children registered with an average attendance of 57. We inadvertently scheduled VBS at the same time as a major city event. We’ll make different arrangements in 2016.

We had 13 children express faith in Jesus Christ as their savior!

We had 45 different volunteers over the week.

We rejoice for the Lord using us to build His Kingdom!

ISBC Licenses McElmurry & Gray

Posted by Rick on April 30, 2015

In a ceremony held April 12, Immanuel Southern Baptist Church licensed Gary McElmurry and Elzie Gray to the ministry. Each man gave a brief testimony and the pastor, Rick Boyne, charged them with the task of the Gospel. Ordained men laid their hands on both men and women of the church prayed for both wives. A reception followed.
