Glad you are here and want to find out more about us. The Edmond Church of Christ is an active community of faith in Edmond, OK, made up of Christians who care for each other and want to serve God. Every Sunday, hundreds of men, women and children from various backgrounds come together to worship God, declare faith in His son, Jesus, and explore the Bible. Our faith is not just practiced on Sundays. It is the foundation for every relationship and all the events of everyday life. We believe our faith should make a profound impact on our lives, including our relationships, jobs, resources, and decisions. We view the Bible as the inspired Word of God, and we strive to follow the teachings and principles of the New Testament. As a community of faith, we take our purpose of "Making Disciples" from Jesus' commission in Matthew 28.

Doing life together provides opportunities for growing and making disciples. To help provide opportunities for us to spend time together and have meaningful conversations, we are launching two new initiatives: Shared Experiences and Mentoring. Shared Experiences provide activity-based opportunities for Bible study and interaction. These groups are a great way to use your interests as outreach and connect over something you enjoy doing together. Currently, Shared Experience groups include 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. The groups are still being organized and leaders recruited, but should be launched soon. Email Shawn for more info.
Jesus made disciples by spending time with others and having meaningful conversations about life, faith and eternity. Mentoring uses intergenerational connections to prompt these types of important conversations. Through mentoring, both participants are encouraged and strengthened in their faith while building stronger connections within the church body. Contact Kent for more info.
The Edmond Church of Christ launched a new Bible class named Catalyst for young adults in their early 20's, starting with our new college graduates. The new group began meeting Sunday, May 5, and continues to meet on Sundays at 9:30am upstairs in room 205. If you are in your early or mid twenties and looking for a place to connect, please join us! For more information, contact Shawn.
Some of Jesus’ final words, after his resurrection and before ascending to heaven to be with His Father, were in the form of a commission to go into the world and make disciples. “Making Disciples” is our mission at the Edmond Church of Christ. We are called to be disciples of Jesus and to make disciples of Jesus. It is a mission that should not only serve as the primary mission and ministry-shaping force within the congregation, it must direct our lives as individuals and families. Join us as we allow God to shape us into devoted disciples of Christ and use us to make other disciples of Christ in this world.
You are invited to join us this week. We are located at 801 South Bryant (corner of Bryant & Ninth, across from Hafer Park).
