STREET MINISTRY THURSDAYS

Join us as we leave from the Church Office at 8:30 AM to head for the Oklahoma City Abortion Clinic. Come with a willingness to listen to and visit with people in tough situations and cover the area in prayer. Then, be ready to step into uncomfortable situations and share your testimony with raw honesty as we minister to the homeless on Oklahoma City. Bring hand sanitizer. We will return around 12:30 PM.

Can't come in person? Make donations for individual items through Sign Up below. The list will be updated every Thursday so check back often.

CARE BAG SIGN UP
SUMMER CAMP SEND OFF

Will you  join us as we send students off to camp this summer! We are asking Connection Groups or families   to sign up to make send-off bags students. They will receive these at camp, and it will be a great way to “bridge the gap” between age groups and show our children and students how much we care about them! We will ask that you be praying for your assigned students while they are away at camp.  

You will sign up online for a certain amount of children/students that your Connection Group or family  is committing to make bags for by using the link below. After you register, you will receive a list of names and these will be the specific students you make the bags for. This allows for the handwritten notes or cards to be personally made out. That being said, we will have 2 separate opportunities for you to participate in camp send-off:

Falls Creek
By June 20- you will receive names of children or students July 4- last day to drop off goody bags

FIRST IMPRESSIONS MINISTRY

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.”  Galatians 5:22-23

Greeters and ushers serve visitors, guests, and church family alike, helping each person to find a place that meets their needs, offering a program, and a warm welcome. Our purpose is to serve those in attendance and to exemplify the fruit of the Spirit to everyone that enters our doors. From assisting with golf carts in the parking lot, entry doors, and welcome desks, become a part of this vital ministry.
