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, declare faith in His son, Jesus, and explore 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. As a community of faith, we take our purpose of "Making Disciples" from Jesus' commission in Matthew 28.

Find help and healing for the hurt of separation and divorce. DivorceCare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. Don’t go through separation or divorce alone. DivorceCare meets weekly (Monday evenings) from 6:30-8:30pm. During the first 30–40 minutes of the meeting, the group watches a video seminar featuring top experts on divorce and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting-to-watch television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies and on-location video. After viewing the video, DivorceCare group participants spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in the lives of group members.

Doing life together provides opportunities for growing and making disciples. To help provide opportunities for us to spend time together and have meaningful conversations, we are launching two new initiatives: Shared Experiences and Mentoring. Shared Experiences provide activity-based opportunities for Bible study and interaction. These groups are a great way to use your interests as outreach and connect over something you enjoy doing together. Currently, Shared Experience groups include Art (DIY crafts), Basketball, Board Games, Dinner Club (new restaurants), Golf, Home Repair Projects, Jiu Jitsu, Quilting, Car/Engine Repair, Knitting, Photography and Mountain Biking. The groups are still being organized and leaders recruited, but should be launched soon. Email Shawn for more info.
Jesus made disciples by spending time with others and having meaningful conversations about life, faith and eternity. Mentoring uses intergenerational connections to prompt these types of important conversations. Through mentoring, both participants are encouraged and strengthened in their faith while building stronger connections within the church body. Contact Kent for more info.
Chronological Plan by Blue Letter Bible
Add historical context to your daily Bible reading by reading the events of the Bible as they occurred chronologically. As you begin a new year, consider setting aside a specific time each day to spend in God's word. Set your schedule and stick with it. If you get behind, don’t give up, just catch up. Each day’s reading is numbered on the plan. Read the Bible for the sake of learning and transformation, not simply to accomplish your day’s reading. Pray and ask the Holy Spirit to give you wisdom and understanding as you read. If you stick to the plan, you will read the entire Bible in one year.
Three ways to get the Chronological Bible Reading Plan:
1. Pick up a paper copy in the church lobby. Each number represents a day of the year.
2. Download a pdf of the Reading Plan here.
3. Use your YouVersion Bible app on your phone or click here for online version of the plan.
Some of Jesus’ final words, after his resurrection and before ascending to heaven to be with His Father, were in the form of a commission to go into the world and make disciples. “Making Disciples” is our purpose and mission at the Edmond Church of Christ. We are called to be disciples of Jesus and to make disciples of Jesus. It is a mission that should not only serve as the primary mission and ministry-shaping force within the congregation, it must direct our lives as individuals and families. Join us as we allow God to shape us into devoted disciples of Christ and use us to make other disciples of Christ.
You are invited to join us this week. We are located at 801 South Bryant (corner of Bryant & Ninth, across from Hafer Park).
