Mothers with young children have the hardest and most rewarding job. Caring for little ones with runny noses, dirty diapers and lots of needs often ties them to the house. It can be a time of loneliness for young moms who need some adult conversation and reassurance about mothering.

Local Moms Group

Eastwood Tulsa offers such reassurance at Mothers of Preschoolers, or MOPS, an international group that was developed for stay-at-home moms who need support. The group gathers on the first and third Thursdays each month at Eastwood. It’s open to those outside the church community.

Dana Suggs, is the mother of seven from the ages of 24 to 2 years. She relies on friends in many ways to get through the various challenges that parenting brings. Together these mothers offer an opportunity for moms to gather for some adult conversation while their little darlings are cared for free of charge in MOPS Kids. “We want moms to be handed a cup of coffee and feel like they have come home.”

MOPS Schedule

What to Expect

Meetings start with moms dropping children off at the provided childcare and gathering for fellowship and food. The group splits into smaller sessions that stay together the entire year.

“It’s safer to share with a smaller group of women you’ve gotten to know over a period of months,” Suggs said.

After an icebreaker, members might work on a craft or listen to a guest speak on issues pertinent to young moms. Plenty of time is allowed for the most needed element – adult conversation.

In addition to the twice-monthly meetings, MOPS organizes field trips, Moms’ Night Out and a Bible study. We try to keep the costs down for members so activities are not prohibitively expensive.

One of the best perks of MOPS comes from helping young moms reassure themselves they aren’t in it alone. We know young moms need to see that most moms aren’t perfect and other members in the group have real problems, that their children usually don’t look like they just stepped off the cover of a J. Crew catalog.

“We all have messy things going on such as financial and marriage struggles, and yet we constantly hold ourselves up to unachievable standards,” Suggs said.

How to Join

If you are a SAHM (stay-at-home-mom) and don’t really have any friends with young children, MOPS is the perfect place to meet new people with at least one thing in common; we are all moms to little ones. You will be welcomed with loving arms and will form so many wonderful friendships. MOPS is a great support system where you will enjoy and look forward to meetings every month.

The group welcomes young mothers with a child from newborn to pre-kindergarten.

For more information visit out MOPS page https://eastwoodtulsa.org/mops and register today to reserve your spot. There are no registration or monthly fees and childcare is provided free of charge.

Our first MOPS meeting will be September 5 from 9:30-11:30pm. You may reserve a spot by signing up here or you may call the church office at 918-836-8686.

State Missions Offering: How to Get Involved https://eastwoodtulsa.org/state-missions-offering-how-to-get-involved/ Mon, 26 Aug 2019 14:00:30 +0000 https://eastwoodtulsa.org/?p=14164 “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me” […]

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me” (Matt. 25:35-36).

Edna McMillan

The Oklahoma State Missions Offering is named after Edna McMillan, a champion for missions in our great state.  An effective communicator who challenged Oklahoma Baptists to give generously, McMillan said in 1932, “A rich man is one who has enough for himself and enough left over to help others. Though he be possessed of millions, a man is poor, who has only enough for himself.”

Edna McMillan Quote

Healing for the Broken

When we see brokenness in our state, we see an opportunity for the Gospel. Through the Edna McMillan State Missions Offering, nearly 30 ministries are funded to meet the same needs Jesus addressed in Matthew 25. When we give together, the impact is significant. Vital ministries are funded, bringing the hope of Jesus to a broken world.

As we prepare to promote the offering in the month of September, here are a few ideas to get involved:

  • Mark your calendar for the Week of Prayer, Sept. 8-14. Use this week as an opportunity to join in with churches across our state to pray the Gospel will shine in the darkness.
  • Watch the State Missions Offering videos. At StateMissionsOK.org, four videos feature some of the ministries funded by the offering.
  • Print the Children’s Activity Book. We must continue to educate the next generation about missions. Creative and educational activities are provided on our website to utilize in the church and at home. Age-appropriate activities are weaved throughout the children’s book, ranging from coloring sheets to crossword puzzles. Through fun activities, children learn the importance of missions and how they can be involved.
  • Plan to give. How is the Lord leading you to give? Begin praying with your spouse. Share ideas with your children on how they can earn money to give. Together, we can make a great impact on lostness in Oklahoma!

What Your Gift Supports

By giving to the Edna McMillan State Mission Offering, you are not only supporting those who are broken from poverty, hunger, foster care, imprisonment, and addiction; you are also supporting church planting, Disaster Relief evangelism, collegiate ministry, Indian Falls Creek, and evangelism projects. You are also supporting a safe haven for victims of human trafficking so that they can receive counseling and ministry. In other words, your gift to the SMO has a huge Kingdom impact on people in Oklahoma!

If we do not reach our state with the Good News of Jesus, who will? The church must answer this call. Together, let’s feed the hungry, give the thirsty a drink, befriend the stranger, clothe the needy, look after the sick and visit those in prison.

By Amy Wilbins

Recently at church, we sang a worship song in English and Spanish at the same time. While we were worshipping, I could not help but remember that there were also members of the congregation who knew Swedish, Arabic, and German and I imagined them singing in those languages, as well. That is what Heaven will be like–worshipping the Lord in every language possible. The Bible says in Revelation 7:9, “after this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people, and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb.” As believers and followers of Jesus, you and I also have the amazing opportunity and privilege of being a part of God’s plan for the world. Yes, even you.

I was born into a Christian home, raised in church, and still consider church as a foundational aspect of my life. I prayed to receive Jesus into my life when I was five years, baptized when I was eight, and rededicated my life to God when I was 12. However, even though I thought I knew and loved Jesus all that time, I truly believe that my walk with Him did not begin until I was about 20 years old. One of the influences that changed my walk with God was a seven-week discipleship program during the summer of my junior year of college. Part of the program consisted of taking a course called Perspectives on the World Christian Movement. I learned things in that class that I had never heard before in all my years of attending church, and it greatly affected my relationship with God. I learned that there are so many ways, no matter the stage or season of life, to be a part of God’s plan for the world. I learned that prayer is such a crucial aspect of how God moves throughout the world. I learned that the term “missions” does not only mean going overseas and while, yes, that is important–not everyone will be given that specific path. At that time, I learned that even I, a college student, had a place in God’s work. Some ways to be involved in missions include praying, sending, and supporting those who are going, welcoming, mobilizing, and learning. No matter what age you are or stage of life you are in, you have a place in God’s work. Yes, even you.

An opportunity for you to be involved in world prayer is to attend the prayer and worship night that our church will be holding on Sunday night, August 25th. This time of prayer will be for specific areas of missions–state, country, and international. This time of prayer is an opportunity to ask God to continue to move throughout the earth and for others to hear of His love, His sacrifice, and His desire for them to know and follow Him. It is also an opportunity to worship the Lord for who He is, what He has done, and what He will continue to do in all the earth.

I am also excited to announce that Perspectives on the World Christian Movement will also be coming to Eastwood in the spring of 2020! More information will be made available this fall.

I am looking forward to seeing you and worshipping with you on August 25th!

One of the young men who have grown up here at Eastwood has recently stepped out in faith to answer the call of God to be “on mission” in his life. You’ve seen Chandler Suggs grow and mature right in front of us as he has helped lead us in worship over the last several years. This is Chandler’s testimony of how the Lord has called him to serve in missions:

“At a Faith Week Unplugged event about 7-8 years ago (I was 13, maybe 14 at the time), we had a speaker come and talk about Missions, and what it was like for him to be a Missionary. While he was speaking, I could feel a big calling on my heart to go into Missions. I sat on that calling for about six years without doing anything with it.

Finally, I was introduced to the organization called Youth with a Mission, or YWAM, which is a missionary organization for training up young people to be missionaries. They have a program called Mission Adventures that equips youth groups to be involved in building the Kingdom of God wherever they are, and the Eastwood youth went to one of these camps. After spending some time with the people at the YWAM base, I felt that similar feeling I had at Faith Week Unplugged, and I knew that this was God fulfilling His calling from years back.

Obeying the call, I applied to join their school that was starting in 2018 and was accepted. We went to Mexico for our Outreach, and I very quickly fell in love with the people and culture. The longer I was in Mexico, the more I realized the entire time I was “doing nothing” with God’s calling, God was actually preparing me for missions. He quickly called, and confirmed that I was supposed to stay with YWAM and continue being a missionary, but also train up other missionaries to go out into the world. Long ago, God asked who He could send to His children, and I am answering His calling, and helping others to do so as well. Here we are, Lord, send us.”

Please continue to pray for Chandler daily as he leads at YWAM Ozark.

Episode #50: God Is Good

In light of the recent shootings in Texas and Ohio, it’s important to know that God is Good. Jeremy and Gordon offer powerful insights. Join the discussion!

Tragedy: 2 mass shootings in USA recently. Motivated by hate. Wrong place, wrong time. Pain and suffering.

People struggle with God is Good because of tragedy.

If you do not have a Biblical worldview, you will view these events in a different way. The question comes up, Why?

That is the reason for this series, so we can get to know God. Watch the Series https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLUpjwBzeCDKG7G0C3fXyiy-M7NoGChOOJ

The Blessings and promises in Scripture tells us of the goodness of God.

All of the attributes of God together show us that God is in control and full of goodness and mercy. He is the defining One. He defines what is good and shows us what is good through His loving acts of mercy.

Evil has come into the world. We do not blame God because of the works of evil in our world.

Mark 10:17-22
“Now as He was going out on the road, one came running, knelt before Him, and asked Him, “Good Teacher, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?” So Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. You know the commandments: ‘Do not commit adultery,’ ‘Do not murder,’ ‘Do not steal,’ ‘Do not bear false witness,’ ‘Do not defraud,’ ‘Honor your father and your mother.’” And he answered and said to Him, “Teacher, all these things I have kept from my youth.” Then Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, “One thing you lack: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow Me.” But he was sad at this word, and went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.”

The only good, true, perfect being in the universe is God. We attempt in vain to establish our own goodness and worth before God like the rich, young ruler but fall short of God’s standard. God has a different way for people to become ‘right’ or ‘good.’ He justifies us from all sin through our faith in Jesus Christ. There is no heavenly balance that weighs our good deeds and bad deeds. God cancels our record of bad deeds and grants us righteousness through Jesus. We are justified by faith apart from any goodness or good deeds done.

“Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.” Romans 3:24 (NKJV)

“If God hasn’t said anything hard to you, you haven’t heard Him say anything at all.”

Experiencing God’s Goodness:

1. Only God is good. You must recognize the goodness of God and your sinfulness. You must experience Him to know that He is good and you are not.

“As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby, if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.” 1 Peter 2:2–3 (NKJV)

2. You can’t be ‘good without God.’ We all struggle with acceptance and being “good enough.” If we would admit it, we all know we are lacking.

“Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.” Jude 24–25 (ESV)

3. Give up or go away sad. Whatever is more important to you than Jesus, is keeping you from Jesus. He knows it and loves you still. But if you don’t give it up, you will go away sad.

In the case of the rich, young ruler, the Bible doesn’t tell us if he ever gave up his riches and came back to Jesus. God knows our heart. He knows the thing/s that are keeping us from Him. If you were having a one-on-one encounter with Jesus what would He ask of you? You don’t have to go away from this worship time sad.
