Readers: If you have used books that a need a new home, please consider donating them to our Nov 4 Book Sale. Proceeds allow us to purchase new books and supplies for our church library. Books on all topics are needed, but most popular are fiction (mystery, romance, thrillers), cookbooks, biography, crafts and children’s books. Puzzles, games, CD music and DVD movies are also big sellers.

There are a few items that have become nearly impossible to sell: textbooks, encyclopedia, magazines, cassette and VHS tapes. Please save these for recycling.

Boxes and bags of donated books marked “Book Sale” may be left in the library or in the hallway by Friday, Nov 3.

Ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer is a Methodist

October 27, 2017

Ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer credits God for blessing her with the talent that won her $1 million on the television show “America’s Got Talent.”
The 13-year-old and her family are still adjusting to the changes that have resulted from her first-place finish on the show. They are members of OKC-Church of the Servant.
Darci’s parents are Clarke and Misty Farmer, and she has three brothers, Nick, Dalton, and Nate.
Mom Misty said she has advised her daughter to “trust that God’s going to take care of you.”
Darci said she plans to give some of her prize money to the church for mission work. OKC-Servant is “a big family, so supportive. I got everybody here to vote for me.”
The Sept. 20 win came with the chance to perform in four shows at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas on Nov. 2-5.
Darci said she is “super excited” about the shows.
The original plan was for her to perform twice, but demand for tickets was so great that the producers added two shows, Misty said.
