All young adults, including those in the regular College, Seekers and Pathfinders classes, are invited to a special summer series called "LIFT" on Wednesday evenings at 7pm. LIFT features great worship and singing, meaningful fellowship, and guest speakers. This summer's theme is "Life Hacks," a modern take on the ancient Wisdom Literature of the Old Testament. LIFT runs May 23 through Aug. 8 and meets in room 206 on Wednesdays at 7pm. For more information, contact Shawn or Evan or call 341-3353.
Three Commission Sundays per year give us a chance to call attention to, pray about, and participate in what God is doing in the world through the Edmond Church of Christ mission efforts. All contributions on Commission Sunday go to support our 13 full-time missionaries and help fund multiple short-term mission trips throughout the year. Your prayers and participation are needed as we look forward to the next Commission Sunday on June 3.
Ladies of all ages are invited to a weekly Ladies' Bible Study on Tuesday mornings at 9:30am in the fellowship hall. Currently, ladies are studying "Life Lessons from Jesus."
Children's Ministry Director, Brenda Gordon, hosts a Young Moms' Bible study on Wednesday mornings at 10:00am in the parlor. Childcare is available during the weekly Bible study. Contact Brenda for more information.
When we choose to make God in our image
Unfortunately, we often operate with false assumptions about God which leave us disappointed or disillusioned with Him. This series of messages will explore the true nature of God by discussing some of the false identities we often give Him when we choose to make God in our image.
Jesus was sent to set captives free (Luke 4:18). Unfortunately, many people in Jesus’ day, and still today, live as captives. Whether it is being a slave to the law, as was the case for many Christians in Galatia, or it is being a prisoner to sin and guilt or even legalism, we find ourselves living without freedom. This sermon series explores FREEDOM in Christ as described in the book of Galatians.
