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.
Jesus once spoke of a lukewarm church, a group of believers content to naval gaze as they grew more and more self-reliant rather than dependent on God. What was Jesus’ response to this anemic body of believers? “I am about to spit you out of my mouth,” he resolved. Some of us know what it’s like to have a lukewarm faith. We are faithful-ish to God and our devotion is real-ish. But the problem is, an “-ish” type of commitment to God falls short of His calling and will likely not withstand the temptations and trials of li. This sermon series will explore the depths of discipleship and challenge us to be all-in for the cause of Christ.
Starting April 5, for the entire month of April, Wednesday evening adult classes will break so everyone can attend one of our Spring Speaker Series sessions. Similar to our Fall Speaker Series in October, there will be four topical classes led by our members and Oklahoma Christian University faculty. Classes will meet throughout the building, so pick a topic that interests you, join a class, and meet others from our congregation that you may not know.
A new Wednesday evening class called CONVERGE will begin May 3 and run through May and June. This class will begin with an extended period of praise and worship led by Jason Dean, followed by in-depth discussion based on the previous Sunday morning sermon. Discussion will focus on going deeper into the text and also applying the text to everyday life. The class, led by Randy Roper and Jason Dean, will meet in the chapel at 7:00pm. Everyone is invited.
GriefShare, a weekly seminar and support system for men and women grieving the loss of a loved one, is on Monday evenings at 6:30pm at the Edmond Church of Christ 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.
With the rise of 'fake news' and alternative facts, skepticism is at an all-time high in our world. Many people no longer know what to believe or who to trust. Truth is, people have always been skeptical—especially of things they can’t see or understand. That’s why one of Jesus’ apostles wrote about some of the many “signs” Jesus performed while here on earth. This sermon series will explore the nature and purpose of some of those miraculous “signs” which are included in John’s Gospel so that we might believe and “have life in his name” (John 20:31).
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.

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.

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.
