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.
During the holiday season, many of us are focused on giving and receiving gifts. But amid the shopping sprees, door buster deals and gift exchanges, let's not forget about the many good things God gives us. In fact, the Bible tells us that "every good and perfect gift is from above" (James 1:17). Do you realize what God has given you? Have you embraced with gratitude God's good gifts to you? This sermon series will remind us of some of the "good gifts" God has given us.
Our annual Christmas Wish program, coordinated by the Pathfinders Class, provides gifts for families in need during the holiday season. The "fireplace," hung with stockings for specific children, is in the church foyer. Go by, pick out a stocking or two and help provide gifts for a child.
We will also be providing gifts for one of our mission locations--McAllen, TX--and for families connected with our Spanish-speaking ministry in Edmond.
In November 2015, we are celebrating three years of God working through the "Creating Space" initiative to do great things in our church, community and in the world. Since 2014, over 570 members of the congregation have gone on mission trips, hundreds more have participated in local outreach efforts, including Mission Edmond, and everyone is being asked to 'embrace' guests who come our way. Click on the image to the left to watch a brief video highlighting some of the great things God is doing through Go, Connect and Embrace.

Mothers are invited to a special series in the Wednesday morning Moms Class called "Spiritual Mindfulness." This interactive study is designed to help mothers shut out life's white noise so we can be more mentally, emotionally and spiritually present. The series is taught by Jennifer Bruner on Wednesdays at 10am in the parlor. For more information, contact Brenda Gordon.
In July, we began construction on a large wing being added to the southwest side of the building. This area will provide much-needed classroom space for our growing adult classes, a large fellowship and kitchen area for meals together, and an expanded greeting area and welcome center for gathering and getting to know guests and visitors. Thank you for your patience during construction.
In a busy world that seems to demand much from us, we are 'creating space' for God to work in and through our lives to accomplish His will in the world. Creating Space, a three-year initiative, is made up of three missional movements: GO - spreading the good news of Jesus through mission trips and missionaries; CONNECT - making meaningful connections in our community for the cause of Christ; and EMBRACE - genuinely welcoming and showing hospitality to guests and visitors among us. Our desire is that as we make ourselves available to God, He will do "immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine" through us (Ephesians 3:20).
You are invited to join us this week. We are located at 801 South Bryant (corner of Bryant & Ninth, across from Hafer Park).
