Making Disciples: Discovery Bible Study, Mentoring & Shared Experiences

God often makes and develops disciples in the context of meaningful conversations and connections. Jesus made disciples by doing life with a handful of people. To help facilitate meaningful conversations and connections, we are promoting three important initiatives in support of our God-given mission to make disciples: Discovery Bible Study (DBS), Mentoring & Shared Experiences. 


Discovery Bible Study

A simple and proven method of Bible study, prayer and discipleship among 2-4 people. Open God’s word with other Christians or seekers, discuss eight simple, yet meaningful, questions, and pray for each other.


Pick up one of the DBS bookmarks in the lobby or here (pdf) and start today!

For more information on DBS, contact Randy


Mentoring

One-on-one monthly meetings with a mentor and mentee designed to build intergenerational relationships and to strengthen disciples. Mentoring follows Jesus’ model for disciple-making, enables both participants to be encouraged and grow in their faith, and provides a platform for meaningful conversations to occur.

Current Sermon Series

  • sunday mornings: AGAINST ALL ODDS

    Seeing God in gideon's story

    The odds were stacked against Israel and their prophet Gideon. But God had big plans for His people, if only they would look to Him and lean on Him. In our current post-Christian culture, the church is also facing incredible opposition and improbable odds. This series challenges us to see God in Gideon’s story so we too can overcome the odds and be victorious.

  • sunday evenings: living with hope

    insights from 1 thessalonians

    Paul’s very personal letter to Christians in Thessalonica was an outpouring of Paul’s love and affection. But it was also a treatise on living with hope and keeping the faith in a culture of unbelief. This series will highlight some of the main thoughts from each chapter in Paul’s letter, and apply them to us today so we can live with hope and keep the faith.

DivorceCare group meets on Monday evenings

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 seminars and support groups are led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. You will learn how to heal from the deep hurt of divorce and discover hope for your future. Most people will tell you that separation and divorce are the most painful and stressful experiences they’ve ever faced. It’s a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you’ve never faced before. DivorceCare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each session has two distinct elements: 

A Seminar with Experts

During the first 30–40 minutes of the meeting, each DivorceCare 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.

A Support Group with Focus

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.


DivorceCare at the Edmond Church of Christ began Monday, Sept. 9, and will continue to meet from 6:30-8:00pm on Monday evenings. Free childcare is provided during group meetings. This group and related resources are provided at no charge to the community and church, but pre-registration is required. 

CALL (405) 341-3353 FOR MORE INFORMATION.

DivorceCare for Kids (DC4K) 

Help your children heal from the pain of divorce

Are your children angry, hurt, and confused about your separation or divorce? A DivorceCare for Kids (DC4K) group is a safe, fun place where your children can learn skills that will help them heal. DC4K groups blend, games, music, stories, videos and discussion to help kids process the divorce and move forward. Groups meet weekly and are designed for children ages 5-12. DC4K is designed to help minimize the short- and long-term effects of divorce on your children’s schoolwork, emotional health and spiritual life. As your children begin to heal from the pain and confusion, their relationships with you, God and others will grow healthy and strong. 


Do your children need DC4K?

Your kids probably feel scared, sad, and confused after your divorce. They know you have been hurt deeply. As a result, they may hide their feelings because they are worried about your happiness or because they do not know how to express their feelings appropriately. DC4K helps them process those feelings and gives them tools to communicate better with you.


DivorceCare for Kids at the Edmond Church of Christ began Monday, Sept. 9, and runs 6:30-8:00pm (simultaneously with DivorceCare for adults). This group and related resources are provided as a service for the community and church at no charge, but pre-registration is required.

2019 Daily Bible Reading Plan

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.

Three ways to get the Chronological Bible Reading Plan:

1. Pick up a paper copy in the church lobby. .

2. Download a pdf of the Reading Plan here.

3. Use your YouVersion Bible app .
