Oologah at Christmas time

Oologah residents made lasting Christmas memories earlier this month at the annual Christmas parade. The parade, which was part of Christmas in Cooweescoowee, drew a variety of local personalities, floats, vehicles, and more to downtown, with Santa Claus himself dropping by for photo ops.

Share the hope

During this Christmas season I’m challenging Harbor Church to offer the greatest possible encouragement we can to others, and that is HOPE. The greatest encouragement is the fact that we serve “The God of Hope.” God, the Creator of all things near and far, Creator of mankind made in His image makes the offer of the free gift of salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ…the greatest gift ever given by the greatest Giver. “For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.”

This year has been full of loss in many ways. Loss of loved ones, jobs, safety, face to face interactions, traditions, and a sense of normal, just to name a few. Though Christmas lights are going up and holiday music rings out, there can be a deep sadness or grief that permeates the season. The Blue Christmas Service recognizes those feelings and the many reasons for them.
