MUSKOGEE, OKLA. – The Wagoner Seventh-day Adventist Church and the Muskogee Seventh-day Adventist Church have teamed up to make an impact on their communities by reaching out to provide different programs and services to help the cities’ special needs. The Muskogee Pathfinders helped by passing out literature, and their leaders provided speakers to help spread the Gospel in Wagoner.
The Muskogee church has purchased a building, which was formerly owned by the Salvation Army, for their community service ministry. The Samaritan Center provides a thrift store and food distribution.
The churches also plan to provide a halfway house, health seminars, a food kitchen and clothing distribution. The Wagoner church has shared clothing and other equipment to supplement Muskogee’s current equipment. The two churches will work together to organize the administration and the services offered.
The Wagoner and Muskogee churches also participate with other churches in their areas to support other community programs. By partnering with others they are joining forces to broaden their mission efforts. Through their collective efforts, two baptisms have been celebrated.
