News and Upcoming Events:
This is not Goodbye
December 20, 2020
It is with great sorrow that the Gentry Seventh-day Adventist Church family mourns the death of one of our beloved members and great leader, the Principal of Ozark Adventist Academy, Mike Dale. Our prayers go up to the throne of grace on behalf of Linda and the rest of the family. We continue to pray for OAA staff as well as the student body that has been impacted by this sad news. It is at moments like this that we want to be reminded that this world is not our home, we are simply passing through. Today a great warrior has fallen asleep in Jesus and we do not say goodbye but simply, good night dear brother, until the morning. May God keep us faithful and may we echo the words of the apostle: "Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus!"
"Help the Homeless"
December 12, 2020 - January 10, 2021
Winter's chill is definitely here and many of the homeless in our area are in need of warm clothes and blankets to brace against winter's cold breeze. Our Women's Ministries team will be gathering warm clothing to donate to the Genesis house to distribute to the homeless in our area. There will be a box in the hallway to place coats, gloves, socks, sweatshirts, shoes, shirts, blankets, and sleeping bags for all ages and sizes of men, women, and children. Donations may be dropped off at the church office or left in the box in the hallway. New and gently used donations will be accepted.
Women's Ministries Day Retreat
November 14, 2020
It was a drippy day outside but inside the light of God's love and kindness was shining. During our Women's Day Retreat, the Clark's from Wellness Secrets told of their experiences with Covid-19 and shared natural remedies that can help fight and defend against infection and disease. Gerri Smoldt encouraged the ladies attending to follow God's eight natural remedies and Cindy Mercer shared her inspiring experiences that we should expect great things from God and "pray BIG." From homemade food to inspiring speakers and fellowship it was an event designed to inspire the ladies attending to look up in every adversity. Thank you to our Women's Ministries Team for all you do for the ladies in our church and community.

Our Gentry Travelers Pathfinder Club had their Fall Campout from November sixth through November eighth at Sequoyah State Park located near Tahlequah in Hulbert, Oklahoma.
