Be sure to have your signs displayed on the passenger side of your vehicle. Your artwork will be used in a video celebrating all the great moms!
PICTURE CHALLENGE We want to see more of our church family! Take a photo of yourself or your family with a sign you’ve created. You can use an encouraging verse, quote or a message that you want to share with the church. Be creative! We would love to see many age groups represented. Send photos to Jeremy Robertson.
Join us for a Facebook live discussion on dealing with the struggles related to our current time of uncertainty. We will spend time talking about relational, mental health and spiritual issues. Feel free to ask questions or explore some new strategies as we navigate a challenging time.
If you miss the live event, the video will post on our YouTube channel afterwards.
DRIVE-BY GRADUATE RECEPTION HONORING HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS SATURDAY, MAY 30 AT 7:00PM CHURCH BUILDING PARKING LOT Each senior will have a designated parking space so church family and friends can drive by to congratulate them. Our plan is to have a Senior Bible Night at a later date.
HISPANIC MINISTRY WORSHIPPING ON FACEBOOK LIVE
Tony Sepulveda with his family (Norma, Marlyn & Bryan) leads worship service on Sunday mornings on Facebook Live for our Hispanic Ministry. Tony is also teaching Wednesday night class as well as a series of Bible studies on Facebook.
When we venture out into the world, we sometimes realize the road back home to God can be difficult. But home is where God is, and where He wants us to be. The famous parable in Luke 15 reminds us who is waiting for our arrival home—a loving Father who seeks, runs and celebrates for us!
Consider inviting someone you know who has stepped away from God or the church to hear this important message. Email or text the link to Sunday’s online worship.
SAMPLE INVITATION: I have been thinking about you lately and hope you are doing well during this unusual season of uncertainty. Like many other churches, my home church, the Edmond Church of Christ, is offering online worship services every Sunday. We are currently in a special series of messages called “Open Arms” intended to humbly ask those who have walked away from the church or God to reconsider. According to our minister, the purpose of these messages is not to judge people but rather to acknowledge some of the reasons people walk away and ask us all to reconsider our view of God, faith and the church in light of what scripture reveals. Would you consider watching these messages online? If you are interested, I would also enjoy visiting with you about your thoughts and reactions to these messages...
