Women plan annual gathering

The Progressive Oklahoma Baptist State Convention's women's department will host a “Night In White” gospel play at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at St. John Missionary Baptist Church, 5700 N Kelley.

The play features members of the convention's 19 church congregations.

The annual “Night In White” has been an anchor program for the women's department for 35 years. It is called “Night In White” because all women are encouraged to wear white for the evening.

Church to opens doors for marathon-related outreach

First Methodist Church of Oklahoma City will once again host its Second Wind Marathon Outreach in conjunction with the Oklahoma Memorial Marathon set for Sunday in downtown Oklahoma City.

Because of its location, First Church-Oklahoma City at 131 NW 4, is unable to have normal Sunday morning worship services on race day. So rather than keeping its doors closed on this notable morning, in 2005 the church decided to open its doors with its Second Wind outreach.

As part of the outreach, an evening worship service called “Blessing of the Shoes” will be at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at the church. Amy Downs-Petty, an Oklahoma City bombing survivor, will be guest speaker at the service.

A key aspect of this free service is a special blessing of the runners.

Also, free pancakes will be served at the church from 5:30 to 11 a.m. Sunday. The church also will offer a children's play area in their parking lot featuring clowns, inflatables, crafts and face painting.
