Blessing Box Ministry

Posted by Rick on October 24, 2019

 

Today, October 24, 2019, Immanuel Southern Baptist Church has opened a new ministry available to our community. A Blessing Box!

Our Blessing Box is intended to help a needy family with IMMEDIATE assistance with food. It is not intended to be used on a daily basis and we ask that anyone using the Blessing Box not “clean it out” but leave some for someone else.

Anyone from the community may use the box and anyone may contribute to it. There will be no perishable items available.

The Blessing Box is located on the NE porch of the church near the corner of North Gertrude and NE 6th St. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the pastor by email at this link. It will be resupplied 2-3 times each week.

Audio Sermons Being Uploaded

Posted by Rick on April 25, 2018

There has been a significant amount of time since the audio sermons have been updated. In fact, since about the middle of 2015.

We began uploading audio sermons yesterday, starting with the most recent.

It will take a lot of time to catch up all the way from 2015, but we’ll do our best. We’ll slowly work backwards.

In the meantime, enjoy the sermons preached from mid-March, 2018 through last Sunday! Just click here, or on the “Sermons” button above.

Food Pantry Ministry Closes Today

Posted by Rick on March 13, 2018

After serving the citizens of Wagoner for more than 9 years, the Food Pantry Ministry has ceased operations, effective today.

Dee Berryhill, the first Food Pantry Ministry Director, builds shelves in our first store-room in 2009.

The Pantry has a long list of faithful volunteers who have worked selfishly to distribute food to the poor. We have seen many, over the years, come to saving faith in Jesus Christ because they were told the Good News while getting food for their family.

It didn’t take long to grow out of space again.

And, of course, we have had our trials, difficulties and challenges. But God has always been faithful.

Volunteers Mary Matthews, Nancy English, and Wanda Nickel up to something in 2009.

The Youth had a canned food drive to support the Food Pantry Ministry in 2010. (L-R) Travis Brown, Matthew Boyd, Audrey (Boyne) Ellis, Tony Boyd, ?, Jacob Mathews, Lori Boyd, ? & Emily Boyne (in pink).

We have been told of many wonderful stories from those whom we have helped over the years.

A busy Food Pantry day early on in 2012.

We have seen God heal many that we prayed for along with many other answered prayers, such as, homes, cars, and jobs.

Everyone who had ever volunteered at the Five Year Celebration.

One of the very last people we served today trusted Jesus for salvation!

Charlie and Linda Cameron.

The volunteers have enjoyed the fellowship of serving alongside others and have enjoyed serving the Lord by serving the people of Wagoner.

Nancy English, Wanda Nickel, Linda & Charlie Cameron in 2011.

The folks whom we served have always been very appreciative of the food that was given.

The volunteers in 2013: Charlie Cameron, Zona Tillman, Barbara Smoot, Linda Cameron, Amanda Montgomery, Richard Krailacek, Audrey Ellis, Sheila McElmurry, Wyatt McElmurry, Nancy English, & Katie Dunn

At the very least, every person who came for food, left with the offer of prayer and an invite to attend church with us. Only a few times in the past 9 years, has anyone refused to be prayed with/for.

On the anniversary of the 9th Year of Service: (at the table) Benny Berend, Linda Cameron, Judi Joy. (Standing L-R) Rufina & Michael Fountain, Zona Tillman, Janet Colbert, Martha Whipple, Sherry, Rohana Weiesnbach, Sandy Laviness, Rick Boyne, Carol Weiesnbach, Jennifer Briggs, Jack Whipple, Tonya, Susie.

A great big “THANK YOU!” to all those who have served over the past 9 years! May God bless you for your faithful service!

Folks who need food can contact:

100 NE 8th St, Wagoner, OK 74467

Phone: (918) 485-2309

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.
