    “It’s not your ordinary mission trip, but a mission of the heart, soul, and mind. It’s about you and God, together, one on one!” Registration has begun for Encounter 2016 for all Middle School and High School students. Encounter is a spiritual mission, a journey to deepen your personal relationship with Christ, fellowship with other believers, and truly place God first in every aspect of your life. Located in the Rocky Mountains in beautiful Estes Park, Colorado, Encounter will bring the peaceful presence of God and nature to you as you study among the pines, hike, laugh, and share God’s word.

    The High School trip is June 19-25; Middle School trip is July 10-16. Cost is $100 per person. To register online, go to www.fccedmond.org/register by March 2, 2016.

    Parents not at the meeting on Sunday, January 31, must contact Mark (above) before signing up their student for the trip.

  • Thanks for Another Successful IAS Bean Dinner

    CONTACT: Greg Hall gregorythall@aol.com 405.388.7344

    Once again our church family has responded generously to help support our youth participating in the 2016 International Affairs Seminar (IAS). As a reminder, IAS is a trip to Washington, D.C., and New York City, which exposes the participants to a larger worldview with a focus on Christian responsibility in the world. The youth visit Congressional representatives, government officials, foreign embassies, and the United Nations. They hold discussions with political activist groups, worship at National City Christian Church, and enjoy sightseeing and usually a Broadway musical.

    The youth participating in IAS 2016 are: Bryan Becker, Jake Blevins, Carter Cain, Hannah Daylor, McKenna Dwyer, Jimmy King, Paxton Shorow, Kylee Stone, Jamie Werhun and Kaitlyn Wood. They appreciate the great support offered by our congregation at the Bean Dinner on January 31. The total donations of $2,146 demonstrate the generosity of our faith community in supporting this activity and help to offset the expense of this opportunity for our youth and their families. Thank you to Bob Steele and Linda Hall for helping with preparation, to the parents of some of the youth participants with serving and cleaning up, and to all those who helped Tana Stufflebean and Sherrye VanOsdol in supplying desserts.

    Please patronize the following local merchants to thank them for their donations to support this activity: Walmart Supercenter (I-35 & 15th), SAM’s (Memorial & Penn), Walmart Supercenter (Danforth & Santa Fe), Walmart Neighborhood Market (164th & Western), Sprouts Farmers Market, Uptown Grocery Company, SAM’s (I-35 Frontage Road), Walmart Neighborhood Market (2nd Street), Homeland (Bryant & Danforth) and Homeland (33rd Street). Due to their generosity, ALL of the donations will again go toward offsetting the cost of this experience for our youth.

    Our Disciples4Water ministry is off to a busy start this year. Our drill team in Mbandaka received additional training in December and is busy installing new wells now that the rainy season has ended. We communicate with them often and they continue to send their gratitude for the opportunity they have been given to help their own. Some very exciting news…Reverend Bonanga, President of the Disciples of Christ Church of the Congo, will be visiting us during the month of March. Would you like to be a part of the greeting committee meeting him at the church the morning of March 3? Would you like to host a dinner in your home or attend a dinner with him during his stay in Oklahoma? Let us know (above) or call Gwen Shaw at 405.826.6140. We will post his full itinerary on our Disciples4Water website and Facebook page.

    The Disciples4Water group will be leading a training session at the Oklahoma Disciples of Christ Leadership Conference on February 6 in Oklahoma City. Stop by our booth and say hello if you are attending. Our next mission trip to Mbandaka, Democratic Republic of the Congo is tentatively scheduled for Summer 2017. Information meetings will be schedule throughout the coming year. We are always looking for volunteers to serve on the Disciples4Water Ministry team or maybe working with us on a project basis is a better fit.

  • Parish Nurses – Heart Health Event

    CONTACT: Donna Clark tdscl5@gmail.com 405.413.1954

    Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of Americans. Knowing the symptoms of a heart attackcan save lives. Maybe even your own! Chest pain may feel like a discomfort in the center of your chest that lasts more than a few minutes or that goes away and comes back. It may feel like uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain. Other symptoms may include shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, or pain in one or both arms, back or jaw. The most important thing you can do is get help immediately. Don’t wait. Call 911. Time matters!

    This Sunday, February 7, we will show our support of Go Red for Women by wearing RED. Please come to the front of the Sanctuary after the service to take a picture. Also, on February 14 and 28 a nurse will be available to take your blood pressure from 8 to 11am. For more information go to: www.heart.org or www.GoRedForWomen.org
