Pastor Update 

Pastor Update  
June 14th, 2019

Our Memorial Garden is just about completed. We observed that when we had a white or gray stone engraved with gold lettering, it was difficult to see what was engraved on the stone.  So the decision was made to have all memorial stones in jet black with gold lettering, and the Pastors of Open Bible and the Founders (8 families) in dark brown with gold lettering.  If you take a look below you will observe the darker stones now throughout the memorial garden.  The last item to be completed this Friday is a white gate and stones, which will hide the outside air conditioners from view.  We plan to have a dedication of our Memorial Garden in late September 2019.


Daniel Plan Class
On Wednesday, June 12th, 2019  we finished our six week healthy lifestyle eating Daniel class.  The group has managed to lose 87 pounds in that 6 week time frame.  Since I will be on vacation the next 3 weeks, the group will not be held again until Wednesday July 10th at 7:00 P.M.  At that time, we will begin a maintenance study, and share appropriate 10 minute videos on the areas of Faith, Food, Fitness, Focus, and Friends.  As we continue with our healthy lifestyle, small steps will lead to big results.  During the Fall months, we will offer the six week class again, to any who might be interested in attending.  In fact, I am looking at doing a fall sermon series on this particular topic.  As of this morning I have lost 19 pounds.  Started at 260, and am now at 241.  My goal is 210.  

Ladies Of Open Bible

The WINGS would like to invite all ladies to the June Lunch at Gio's Deli on CR 301 in Oxford on Friday, June 21st at noon.  A sign-up sheet is available at the sign-up board near the Men's Restroom.  

Men of Leisure
Join Dennis Duessler and his group of men who enjoy breakfast and a Bible study.  The group will meet on June 14th at Bob Evans Restaurant on CR466 at 8:30 A.M.  

"Make Open Bible Shine Again"  Clean Up Day has been rescheduled for  June 24th, from 8:30-11:00 A.M.  Please change the date on your calendars, and consider showing up at the church that day to help us clean windows, trim bushes, vaccuum, dust, and mop. The way we take care of God's Church is a way we reflect our love and appreciation to Him.
Fred Aguda and wife Lorelei    

Fred Aguda has been at the Villages rehab on 466 after a recent hip replacement surgery.  He is recovering very slowly from the procedure.  He and his wife Lorelei need to be out of their apartment by the end of June.  I realize that many in our congregation are at a stage in life where they can no longer lift furniture.  But as Christians, we should in some way attempt to help the Aguda's with this move.  If you would be interested in giving a money gift with your weekly offering, just designate it, in some way for Fred Aguda moving truck.  We will use your donations toward the move, as the Council determines what amount we will give toward the hiring of Two Men and a Truck.  We received gifts of $270.00 on June 9th.  
Blessings to you and yours this week,  
Pastor Mark Schulz

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. ~ John 3:16
