The Edmond Church of Christ is launching a new Bible class for young adults in their early 20's, starting with our new college graduates. The new group began meeting Sunday, May 5, at 9:30am upstairs in room 205. On Wednesday evenings at 7pm, this new class will be included in the LIFT summer series that meets next door in room 206. This new class provides great opportunities for young adults and college graduates to find & develop a sense of community and get connected in the Edmond church family. For more information, contact Shawn.
Conversion Stories in Acts
As the good news of Jesus spread during the first century, people’s lives were being transformed by the gospel. The book of Acts records several conversion stories—each story with its own unique circumstances and insights. These stories remind us of the power of the gospel to turn people toward Jesus.
Jesus’ Letters to the Church from Revelation
John, the inspired author of the final book of the Bible, received a revelation from the Lord. To begin conveying what he saw and heard, John penned specific letters from Jesus to the seven churches in Asia Minor (modern day Turkey). What is inside these letters is both affirming and alarming for the church then and for the church now.
God often makes and develops disciples in the context of meaningful conversations and connections. Jesus made disciples by "doing life" together with a small group of followers. To help facilitate meaningful conversations and connections among the Edmond Church of Christ, we are promoting three important initiatives in support of our God-given mission to MAKE DISCIPLES. In addition to Discovery Bible Study, that continues to provide an opportunity for opening up our lives and God's word with each other, we are launching a MENTORING initiative and SHARED EXPERIENCES initiative. The primary purpose behind these two efforts is to create a platform for moving us closer to Christ and Christlikeness. Find out more about these exciting new efforts and get involved!

Groups about to launch: 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.

Chronological Plan by Blue Letter Bible
Add historical context to your daily Bible reading by seeing 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.
