First Christian is not just a place – it is family.
Edmond First Christian Church has always been a part of my life. I started at First Christian on the “cradle roll.” My dad, John Stone, grew up in the church and we all followed along. Mark joined the church in 7th grade when his family moved to Edmond and his mother, Pearl, became the secretary at my Dad’s business. Mark remembers coming to First Christian the first Sunday and his mother telling him, they “were going because John Stone went there, so it must be a good church!” First Christian is not just a place. First Christian is family. Family who have raised us to know Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Family who have nurtured our faith and showed us what it truly means to serve others. Family who have helped raise our children in the faith with love. Family who pray, laugh, celebrate, and weep with us. First Christian is God’s family right here around us.
