Oakley United Methodist Church
The Mission of the Church
Embracing & Extending the Teachings of Our Lord
We see our church not simply as a house of worship with walls, a
roof and open doors. Rather, we believe that the church is actually
the members and believers that come together to practice God’s word,
celebrate His love and extend His gifts.
Through the Bible, service, worship and missions, we bring God
closer to our hearts and closer to the hearts of those around us.
From traditional sermons to attending our faith-based community
initiatives or events — everything we do is based off of our
commitment to spread the teachings of our Lord.

PRAYERS FOR THE SICK
God of wisdom and love, help me and all others who are struggling with difficult circumstances find direction and strength to face our challenges. Give us the assurance that underneath us are your everlasting arms, which will sustain us through everything we face day and night. In Jesus’ name. Amen.~~churchart.com
Heal me, LORD, and I'll be healed. Save me and I'll be saved, for you are my heart's desire. — Jeremiah 17:14
Lord Jesus Christ, by your patience in suffering you hallowed earthly pain and gave us the example of obedience to your Father's will. Be near me in my time of weakness and pain; sustain me by your grace, that my strength and courage may not fail; heal me according to your will; and help me always to believe that what happens to me here is of little account if you hold me in eternal life, my Lord and my God. Amen.~~Book of Common Prayer
Dear God, I know that the first step in all spiritual healing is to believe. I believe! I open my mind and heart believing in your infinite power and possibility. I believe that healing is a dynamic and reachable experience, a reality that can be experienced right now. I maintain a patient and loving attitude, for I believe that your healing activity is now at work in my mind and body. I look forward, with joyful expectation, to the perfect wholeness that you are now bringing into manifestation through me. I believe in your constant expression of perfect good in and through me. I rest in the certainty of your healing power. I know that with you all things are possible. In Jesus Christ's name, Amen.~~unknown
Dear Lord, it is my will to surrender to you everything that I am and everything that I'm striving to be. I open the deepest recesses of my heart and invite Your Holy Spirit to dwell inside of me. I offer you my life, heart, mind, body, soul, and spirit. I surrender to you my past, present, and future problems. I ask You to take hold over every aspect of my life. I surrender to You all my hurt, pain, worry, doubt, fear, and anxiety, and I ask You to wash me clean. I release everything into Your compassionate care.
Please speak to me clearly, Lord. Open my ears to hear Your voice. Open my heart to commune with You more deeply. I want to feel Your loving embrace. Open the doors that need to be opened and close the doors that need to be closed. Please set my feet upon the straight and narrow road that leads to everlasting life. Amen.~~unknown
PRAYER AND A PLATE
One of the most powerful moves for the Kingdom that we can make as a church is to do as the Apostles did, and devote ourselves to two things: The breaking of bread and prayer. Join us on the first Wednesday of each month to pray for one another and to share a simple meal as we explore the parables of Jesus together! We meet at 7PM for prayer, with our bible study meal following--I'll see you there!—Rev. Jordan Durham
A combined meeting of the Oakley Methodist and Sardis Methodist Women will be meeting in our Fellowship Hall on Tuesday, June 13th at 11 am. Please bring a sandwich. The ladies of Oakley will provide beverages and dessert.
ALL WOMEN ARE WELCOME!
