GriefShare provides hope, comfort & support

It hurts to lose someone. Find help at GriefShare. 

GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. If you have lost a loved one, consider getting involved in this 12-week seminar and support system called GriefShare, beginning Monday, Feb. 27, at the Edmond Church of Christ (room: parlor). GriefShare meets from 6:30-8:00pm, and free childcare is available. Allen & Jeanette Wiederstein facilitate GriefShare. For more information about GriefShare, check out the website.  For more information about our group, email the Wiedersteins or call the church office at 341-3353.

Commission Sunday reminds us of our calling to spread the gospel

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. Plus, we also continue our long-standing support of In Search of the Lord's Way, a television ministry that reaches around the world.

 

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.

Spring Break mission trip targets beautiful Southeast Oklahoma

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 Broken Bow and Idabel in Southeast Oklahoma to do service projects, teach the Bible, provide meals and other efforts to encourage the local congregations and reach the community.
