Jehovah’s Witnesses  conventions in Tulsa planned for two weekends

 

 An extensive house-to-house campaign has recently been underway in Kansas and Oklahoma, inviting Christian families and singles to be in Tulsa at the end of next week, or the following weekend.

   As previously announced, preparations are underway for two consecutive three-day conventions in the Reynolds Center of the University of Tulsa, June 30 - July 2 and again July 7 - 9. These Christian gatherings are annual events for Jehovah’s Witnesses and many invited guests.

All sessions of the conventions are free of charge, with no collections taken. Comfortable seating in the Reynolds Center will provide good views of the event stage and multiple large screen video platforms for a number of insightful nature videos, which stress the convention theme “Don’t Give Up”.

Cornerstone Church to host Father’s, Friend Day and the Freedom Factor this Sunday

 

“Many fathers have fought for our freedom in one way or another. They have persevered unpleasant work environments only to be let go to look for another job that may not fit their skill set. They have answered the call to many challenging situations yet remain the rock we call dad while others have had difficulty fulfilling this high caliber role," Mickey Baldwin, lead pastor at Cornerstone said.  "Many fathers have been bent and broken due to illness, untimely incident, tragedy, war, or actions that have robbed them of their freedom. Yet, fathers nevertheless. Lord, help our fathers."   

Make this Sunday a CF Sunday as we celebrate Fathers during Friend Day - a special time to connect  with friendly people, inspiring words about how to face the giants in your life and find real life and freedom, and a shared meal. A day set to bring a smile and  laughter to our lives.

A Few of My Favorite Things with Katina Holland

The heat is cranking up outside and I know, at least for me, the thought of cooking and heating up the house is cringe-worthy.  I thought I would use the column this week for some easy recipes that will keep you from heating up the oven too much and give you a whole meal you can prepare easily.  Most of it you can and should prepare ahead of time and just refrigerate until you are ready to eat.

My favorite recipes are those that are quick and easy and have few ingredients.  They require little effort to get ready and don’t cost much to prepare for my family.  Don’t get me wrong, I have those that require overnight marinades and cook for hours and those are great, but I love spending time with family far more than I enjoy standing in the kitchen cooking so these are perfect for getting out of the kitchen quick.

(Photo by Page Hayden)

President Elect Darryl Raley (center) is shown with Rotarian of the Day Julie Roberds and speaker Margaret Hess. Hess  is the Business Development Specialist at Green Country Technology Center. GCTC offers a Start Up 101 for entrepreneurs in the spring and fall of each year. The initial class had 9 enrolled, and Margaret is continuing to work with several of them on their business idea.  A few of the students realized that being a small business owner was not in their best interest at this time, which is also a goal of the classes.  Their newest opportunity is Talk Local @ the Lokal Coffee House at 212 E 6th.  Each Wednesday, beginning June 14 from 7:30 to 8:30, a local entrepreneur/small business owner will give a short testimonial to be followed with an open discussion among people in similar circumstances.

Okmulgee Lions

OSUIT nursing students and faculty spent their day Friday and Saturday assisting the Okmulgee Lions Club manning the Oklahoma Lions Mobile Health Screening Unit during the Pecan Festival.  

They rolled up their sleeves and were eager and ready to go to work at the various stations to check for: visual acuity, glaucoma, blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, basic pulmonary (lung) function, bone density, and body fat composition.  In addition, the Lions manned the spot vision camera (target age 6 months to six years) to check for: myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism (blurred vision), anisometropia (unequal refractive power), amblyopia (lazy eye), and anisocoria (unequal pupil size). 

The Okmulgee Lions Club owes a deep debt of gratitude to these faculty and student nurses from OSUIT.

Tuesday's Lions Club meeting was another "Made in Oklahoma" product program by Paul Schatte (pronounced Shot-ee), Vice-President and part-owner of Head Country BBQ Sauce in Ponca City.  This story, and history, has it's beginnings in World War II by Donovan "Bud" Head, a cook on a Navy destroyer, who served his own recipe sauce to the men on the ship.  After coming home from the Navy, Bud and his wife Freda produced the popular sauce from their ranch house, and neighbors would line up with their fruit jars.  In 1977, it became too much to handle, so Bud passed along his secret recipe to a nephew, Danny Head.  Bud probably never imagined his sauce would become a staple at backyard BBQ's across 26 states and 18 foreign countries.  Head Country is now Oklahoma's #1 selling BBQ sauce and the Ponca City plant produces 6,000 gallons of the sauce per day.
