• Students - Your Relationships and Service Matter!

    CONTACT: Rev. Mark Taylor mtaylor@fccedmond.org or 405.341.3544 ext. 102 Go to www.fccedmond.org/studentprograms for all Youth event details.
    Getting connected in our faith community can make a huge difference in your student's life! Make sure they don’t miss any of our activities, including Sunday morning breakfast, announcements, and SS each week at 10AM and Wednesday night dinner, worship, and small groups. Here are four other ways to connect and serve in October:
    - Sunday, October 6 – 1:00 – 3:00PM – Labyrinth
    We’re going to walk the labyrinth at UCO. This is a great opportunity to encounter God in a different and special way. Not familiar with labyrinths? It’s basically a simple walking path constructed to invite reflection and meditation. But don’t worry - you will experience this together with your church family and be guided through the whole process. Meet at 1:00 in the Family Life Center. We will be done at 3:00.
    - Saturday, October 19 – Serve Our City Saturday
    We are partnering with our Outreach Team to volunteer with different projects around Edmond to continue to show our community that we are Here for Good. You can serve at Ida Freeman Elementary or the HOPE Center in the morning or help the Ida Freeman 5th grade students with their Heard on Hurd booth in the evening. Times and details available on the Serve Our City Saturday registration form - register online at fccedmond.org/register
    -Sunday, October 27 – 5:00 – 6:30PM – Children’s Ministry Trunk or Treat
    Come pass out candy and have fun helping with our Children’s Ministry Trunk or Treat. You can bring and decorate a car or just come help. Want to help? Contact Jennifer Humphrey at jhumphrey@fccedmond.org or talk to her at church!
    - Celebrate #SOCKTOBER all month! Donate NEW socks for children and adults. Girls and boys, men and women, we all need socks to warm our feet! Help Marissa Kosir with this easy and awesome service project by bringing socks to FCC by the end of October. We’ll do a sock sort, then deliver them to Ida Freeman Elementary where they will be shared with kids in need. We’ll also share them with our homeless friends at Church Under the Bridge and through the Homeless Alliance in OKC.

    CONTACT: Shelley Regan sregan@fccedmond.org 405.414.3544
    Serving matters. Not only because it’s important for the community, but because it’s important for your own spiritual formation. By serving together, we have opportunities to make new friends and increase our impact. In June we held our first SERVE OUR CITY SATURDAY and went out to show Edmond we are HERE FOR GOOD! On October 19 we have another opportunity to serve and make a difference.
         Adults, students, and children (age 5 and older) will work side-by-side in projects at Ida Freeman Elementary, the HOPE Center, and at the final Heard on Hurd of the season in the Ida Freeman booth. To see the full list of projects and sign up, use the Serve Our City form on fccedmond.org/register or complete a registration in the rotunda on Sunday.

  • small things|GREAT LOVE: Fostering love for the foster community

    CONTACT: Erin Robertson erincrobertson@gmail.com 405.471.9386

    October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and so small things|Great Love is partnering with Palomar, OKC’s Family Justice Center. Most of the time, when children are exposed to violence in the home, they are taken into foster care for some length of time. Palomar can help those foster experiences be shorter, and end in reunification with one or both parents. Their mission is to provide protection, hope, and healing. Let’s work with them to interrupt the cycle of domestic violence and child abuse. Find more info on their website at https://palomarokc.org
         In October, we are collecting coloring books with markers or crayons. Please bring your donations to the box in fellowship hall by the end of the month.
         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
