Our Bible Class Groups

Our Bible classes, which meet weekly, provide wonderful opportunities for people of all ages to learn the Bible in a safe, encouraging environment of peers. In addition to Bible study, our classes serve as fellowship and ministry groups. Each class has its own personality, but all classes provide many fellowship, service and ministry opportunities. Many of the classes go on mission trips, do local service projects, enjoy holiday parties, cookouts, and other social events. Each class has an overseeing shepherd (elder) who gets to know and cares for class members in his shepherding group.

We are a very large church, but we try hard not to let people fall through the cracks. If you want to get plugged into the Edmond Church of Christ, the best way to do it is through one of our many Bible classes. Every Bible class is open to visitors. If you need help finding a class that is right for you, don't hesitate to let us know. In fact, you can call (405) 341-3353 or email the church office.

We offer classes for all ages, including nursery, pre-school, elementary, middle school, high school, and college-aged students, plus the adult classes listed below.
