Ada —


Inquiry class held at St. Joseph Catholic Church

For those interested in learning more about the Catholic faith, there will offer an evening of  inquiry about the Catholic faith on Tuesday, Aug. 27,  from 7-8 p.m.

The session will be located in the conference room of the parish office building located at 1300 East Beverly.  Signs will help direct participants to the meeting room.

Various topics will be presented and there will be time for questions and discussion. The inquiry sessions are the beginning steps in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.  The more formal classes will begin Sept. 10.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process by which a person may become Catholic. The process offers an opportunity to those who are searching for a way to meet their spiritual needs and to identify with a community of faith.  It is the church’s way of extending an invitation to explore what the Catholic faith has to offer. 

For more information, contact the parish office at 580-332-4811.

Life Community Church

hosts Family Matters series


ADA — Life Community Church hosts  Family Matters, a new sermon series by Mickey Keith, senior pastor. The series continues from Sept. 8-29 at the Sunday 10 a.m. service and is open to the public.  Over four consecutive weeks, Keith will discuss the importance of Christianity in the family covenant and its value in all relationships.

The series includes these:

• “Does the Family Still Matter?”  — Sept. 8.

• “Secrets of a Successful Family”— Sept. 15.

• “Family and the Five Love Languages” (featuring Jerry Duncan, Ph.D) — Sept. 22.

• “Kids Say the Darndest Things” — Sept. 29.

“In developing this series, I want to not only share what ‘matters’ to families — what makes them strong and thriving — but I also will make a strong, declarative statement that families, particularly Christian families, do ‘matter’ and they matter a great deal,” Keith said.

The series will include teaching materials as well as practical insights Keith has gained over more than 30 years as a non-denominational Christian pastor.  

“We will focus on some of the specific Biblical passages that provide insight and inspiration into why the family is important,” Keith said.  “In a time when secular values are affecting our culture in so many ways, I believe it’s essential to maintain a strong link between our Christian values and our families.  This is the core teaching in why ‘Family Matters,’” he said.

At Life Community Church, nurseries are available for children 3 years and under. Life Kids and J-12 classes (for ages 4-12) also meet weekly during the Sunday 10 a.m. service.  

Life Community Church is located at 330 East 14th Street in Ada.  The church was founded by Senior Pastors Mickey and Glenda Keith in February 2006.  For more information about the church, phone 580-427-6230, visit the website at or Life Community Church on facebook.
