Baptist church to host revival
A revival focusing on youths and their parents is set for Sunday through Tuesday at Beth Haven Baptist Church, 12400 S Western.
Services will be at 6 p.m. Sunday and 7 p.m. Monday and Tuesday.
Beth Haven's youth pastor, the Rev. Rick Franklin, said the meetings are designed to give teens and their parents or guardians the tools to address issues facing young people in today's world. Messages will be based on a biblical perspective and intended to encourage young people and their parents to draw closer.
Franklin, who will be conducting the meetings, said the messages are designed to help raise parents' awareness.
“The world is taking a toll on our young kids today,” Franklin said. “We need to understand what God has to say about these issues. If we don't get a hold of these principles, we'll lose our kids to the world.”
Franklin said the community is invited to attend.

Lecture series to begin
Grace Bible Church of Oklahoma City will present the 2012 Benjamin Breckinridge Warfield Lecture Series June 1-2 at Oklahoma City University.
The event will feature presentations by G.K. Beale on the topic “Will the Church go through the end-time tribulation?” The program will be from 7 to 9:30 p.m. June 1 and from 9:30 a.m. to noon June 2 at the Meinders School of Business, NW 27 and McKinley on the OCU campus.
There is no charge for admission. However, registration is encouraged due to limited seating.
The focus of the presentation is an examination of prophecy on the Church: specifically, does the Church escape the end-time tribulation in a secret rapture or does it go through it? The four lectures address Daniel 7 and the Gospels, I John 2:18, 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12, and Revelation 3:10.
Beale currently serves as professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary. He has also served on the faculties of Grove City College, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and the graduate school at Wheaton College.
The Benjamin Breckinridge Warfield Memorial Lecture Series is sponsored by Grace Bible Church of Oklahoma City.
