  • "Elephants In The Room" Summer Sermon Series

    CONTACT: Rev. Dr. Chris Shorow cshorow@fccedmond.org 405.341.3544 
    In every life, in every home, in every church, there exist certain problems, certain realities that we don’t want to acknowledge. Those issues we try to ignore so maybe they will just go away. You know what I’m talking about. Those “elephants in the room”. To address some of these ignored topics we’ll be having a seven-week sermon series this summer and considering ways we can better respond to those “Elephants In The Room.” 

    We’ll be looking at the things like addiction, prejudices, commitment, debt, abuse, mental health, and other complicated things in our lives. The series launches June 23 and concludes August 4. We’ll hear from four ministers during the series, including Rev. Cara Gilger who will join us Sunday, June 30 to give insights into “Praying When It’s Complicated.” Cara grew up here at FCC and is the daughter of our own Jackie Booher. She’ll be speaking during our Summer Sunday School that day as well and will share from the new book 99 Prayers: Prayers Your Church Needs (But Doesn’t Know It Yet).

    Lilyfield provides foster homes for children ages 0-17 years old. They are a faith-based agency and believe that God has called his people to have open arms and hearts for those in need, particularly for children. Their program is for those who are considering fostering children of all ages, with a specific need for families open to children over age 6 and sibling sets of two or more children. They also offer programs for young women who have aged out of foster care and have started a program called EmpowerOKC to help families in crisis before DHS is called in. Prevention is worth a pound of cure after all! Check out more about this fantastic group at https://www.lilyfield.org/ In June, we will are collecting diapers, size 3 or larger. You can get any size bag or box, and feel free to throw in a package of wipes too! Bring it to the Fellowship Hall donation box!

    The mission of small things|GREAT LOVE is to promote the agencies and donation opportunities already in place around the OKC metro that benefit the foster community. Each month a different group will be highlighted, and a specific need or donation request will be shared. For more info, check out our website at  http://www.stglok.org/

  • VBS 2019 Was A WINNER!

    CONTACT: Jennifer Humphrey jhumphrey@fccedmond.org or 405.341.3544 
    For this year's Vacation Bible School, we "Raised Our Game" and "Powered Up with Jesus!" It was a fun-filled 4 days of games, crafts, singing, dancing and more! We had 94 kids and 70 volunteers - what an amazing group. The kids watched their friend, Kellen, tell some awesome Bible stories, and found that God wants them all to lead a Godly life. Kids even met some surprise guests – Pikachu, Pac-man & the Ghosts, Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach. Amazingly, our kids collected over 500 items of non-perishable food for the HOPE Center of Edmond – meeting their goal! Thank you to everyone who helped, supported or prayed for a successful VBS. Come this Sunday, June 9, at either the 9 or 11am worship and watch our FCC VBS kids and volunteers sing a few of their songs for you! (Kids - come sing! Volunteers - wear your shirts or costumes!)
