Glad you are here and want to find out more about us. The Edmond Church of Christ is an active community of faith in Edmond, OK, made up of Christians who care for each other and want to serve God. Every Sunday, hundreds of men, women and children from various backgrounds come together to worship God and learn about the Bible. Our faith is not just practiced on Sundays. It is the foundation for every relationship and all the events of everyday life. We believe our faith should make a profound impact on our lives, including our relationships, jobs, resources, and decisions. We view the Bible as the inspired Word of God, and we strive to follow the teachings and principles of the New Testament.
WISSAM AL-AETHAWI, SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER ON SUNDAY, OCTOBER 2
Join us on Sunday, Oct. 2, to hear from a modern day "Difference Maker," Wissam Al-Aethawi, associate minister with the Sunset Church of Christ in metro Detroit, MI. Wissam was born and raised to a Sunni Muslim family in Baghdad, Iraq. In the mid-1990's, he rejected Islam and became an atheist. But in 1997, Wissam found a copy of the Bible and his whole life changed. He became a Christian (incredibly, it took 12 years to find someone to baptize him) and continued seeking God's will for his life. A graduate of the University of Baghdad, Wissam worked as a civil engineer for 8 years after finishing his service as a Republican Guard. Then in 2011, Wissam made his way to the U.S. Nine months later, he attended the Sunset International Bible Institute in Lubbock, TX, and in 2014, moved to Michigan to begin full-time ministry and outreach to the Arab-speaking community in metro Detroit. His story is an amazing testimony to the power of God's word and the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
In addition to speaking at all services at the Edmond Church of Christ on Oct. 2, Wissam will speak at the OC Lectureships on Monday, Oct. 3, at 7:00pm.
Ladies of all ages from the church and community are invited to the Fall Ladies' Event on Friday, Sept. 30, 6:00-10:30pm at the church building.

As part of our CONNECT initiative, the Edmond Church of Christ will mobilize into our community on Oct. 20-22 for our annual Mission Edmond effort. Individuals and families of all ages among the church family will organize into teams that go throughout the community sharing the love and message of Jesus through service and acts of kindness. Some of the efforts planned include window washing, yardwork, tree trimming, minor home repairs, police and fire department support, Heard on Hurd booth, military care packages, and much more! Mission Edmond is scheduled during area school's fall break so more people are available to participate on one day, two days, or all three days of Mission Edmond. For more information, contact Kevin Rayner or Shawn McElroy. Cost is only $15 per person which includes t-shirt, food, and supplies.
Why do we conduct Vacation Bible School during many of our mission trips?
Six years ago, a Colorado teen first connected with the Edmond Youth Group at VBS in Poncha Springs, Colorado. The relationships she formed would lead her to give her life to Jesus.
Faithfulness is forged in our daily choices, conversations, thoughts and actions. The call to follow Jesus can be overwhelming. We sometimes think we are expected to somehow convert our entire neighborhood or change the world. The truth is, only God is able to convert people. And certainly, only God can change the world. Our calling from God is simply to be faithful...right here, right now. Join us as we acknowledge the faithfulness of God and strive to be faithful to God each day.
