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.
GriefShare, a weekly seminar and support system for men and women grieving the loss of a loved one, begins at the Edmond Church of Christ on Monday, Feb. 27, from 6:30-8:00pm in the parlor. Facilitators Allen & Jeanette Wiederstein understand intense grief firsthand; they lost their adult daughter, April, 14 years ago. After viewing a very informative video each week, the Wiedersteins will sit with and facilitate meaningful discussions on important grief topics. There is no cost for GriefShare, and free childcare is provided. For more information, call 341-3353.
God is doing amazing things to reach people throughout the world through the mission efforts of the Edmond Church of Christ. In 2017, we expect about 350 people to go on 12 different mission trips while we provide support for 12 full-time missionaries in places such as Zambia, Germany, Nicaragua, Montreal, Mexico and in the U.S.
The entire contribution on three Commission Sundays during the year goes toward funding our mission trips and supporting our missionaries. The overall financial need for 2017 is $382,228, which represents about three times our regular weekly giving on three Commission Sundays. Please prayerfully consider how you can give sacrificially to partner with God and this congregation to reach the world with the gospel.

Sunday Mornings: "EXILED" (SERMONS FROM DANIEL)
Daniel found himself in a foreign land facing an unusual culture, yet he remained faithful to God. As Christians now living in what many describe as a “post-Christian” world, we find ourselves in a foreign place engulfed by a strange culture that is often hostile toward Christianity. We are aliens and exiles. But our calling hasn’t changed. This sermon series will use the story of Daniel as a platform for discovering how we can live for God when cultures collide.
Sunday Evenings: "SEASONS OF LIFE"
Life in the human body was never meant by God to be the full extent of our existence. He has something else planned. Something better. Something eternal. But while we are here in these bodies, living these lives, we experience many different opportunities and challenges unique to the various stages of life. This Sunday evening preaching series will explore some of those opportunities and challenges as we better understand how we all grow and mature in Christ through each of the “seasons” of life, from childhood to the Golden Years.
In addition to the Campus Ministry mission trip to McAllen, TX, over Spring Break, the Edmond Church is also involved in Mission Oklahoma during the break. People from all ages in the congregation will travel down to Southeast Oklahoma near the Broken Bow area to do service projects, teaching, providing meals and other efforts to encourage the local congregations and reach the community. If you are interested, see Clay Trotter or Blake Blackwell.
If you already have a systematic way to spend regular time in God's word, then keep it up! If you don't, you might consider starting the new year with a new Bible reading plan. Consider the 5x5x5 Bible Reading plan. The basic idea is that you read 5 minutes a day, 5 days a week, and then share your insights with 5 people throughout the week. If you stick to the plan, you will read through the entire New Testament in one year, and you will have shared scripture and your insights from reading the scriptures with many people.
5x5x5 DAILY BIBLE READING GUIDE FOR 2017 (pdf document)
Faithfulness is forged in our daily choices, conversations, thoughts and actions. The call to follow Jesus can seem overwhelming at times. 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. As we begin a new year, we will renew our commitment to being faithful to God and His calling on our lives.

Children and youth of the Edmond Church of Christ have been participating in Leadership Training for Christ (LTC) for many years. LTC provides opportunities for parents and other adults to work closely with students to discover and develop their God-given gifts and talents for service and leadership. All of the preparation and work of several months of LTC are on full display at the annual LTC Convention in Rogers, AR, April 14-15, 2017. Click on the "news/events" link above to see the LTC schedule. For more information, contact Brenda, Dana, Jeremy or John.
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.
