90th Anniversary Celebration
On September 8, 2019, Crown Heights UMC celebrated 90 years of ministry. In worship we lit candles for members who laid the foundation of faith on which we now stand. We learned more about our history, especially what the Methodist Episcopal Church looked like back in 1929 in Oklahoma. Rev. Trina Bose North preached on God’s presence finding us and freeing us to live fully. In between services, the church gathered for a fun time to fellowship. We enjoyed delicious crepes from Crepe Brewers food truck. Musician Steven Stark entertained us on the back patio. And we displayed pictures of the past 90 years. We give thanks for the ministries of this church for the last 90 years, and pray God’s blessings on our future together. May Crown Heights United Methodist Church continue to worship and serve this community in the years to come.
Mission Trip to Sunflower, Mississippi
December 26-30, 2017 to Sunflower, Mississippi
Five years ago, Rev. Veronica Pritchard was appointed to a tiny church in Sunflower, MS. She was there to close the doors; they were just too small. But when she arrived, Veronica saw the needs of the poor community surrounding the church and got to work instead. She helped transform her church into a center where mission teams come to work on the homes in their area. Veronica says, “Delta Grace is a year-round mission hub that provides beds, showers, kitchen facilities, and mission opportunities for mission teams. Teams work on homes of many who have lost hope and do not know what tomorrow brings. Our purpose is to match mission teams with mission work within an hour’s drive. Our prayer is that the volunteers will transform the lives of those they serve and in turn have their lives transformed.” Check out their website at deltagrace.org.
Crown Heights UMC is sent 11 mission team members to go to Sunflower, Mississippi. We left Tuesday December 26, and returned Saturday December 30, 2017. We drove to Mississippi and stay in the Delta Grace dorms. We did light construction work for three days before returning home.
