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:

Wagoner Area Neighbors

100 NE 8th St, Wagoner, OK 74467

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.

Children’s Church Has Begun!

Posted by Rick on January 6, 2010

This past week, children at Immanuel Southern were treated to the very first ISBC Children’s Church led by Jack and Pat Bruce.  The Bruces have felt led by the Lord to begin a work especially for children and are excited at the prospect of this new ministry!

The children will attend the main worship service through the singing, baptisms, welcome and offering.  They will be dismissed to their very own service during the offering.

Jack and Pat plan to offer an age appropriate worship setting including Bible stories and individualized prayer times.  Children’s Church is for kids Kindergarten through Sixth Grades.
