• Mission Experience 2017

    CONTACT: Rev. Mark Taylor mtaylor@fccedmond.org 405.341.3544

    This summer, our student ministry took two trips to downtown Oklahoma City for a different type of mission experience: serving people living in poverty or without a home, who are right here in our own backyard. Our high school and middle school students experienced the reality of those in need in our own community and how the difficulties of poverty affect the lives around us. In June, we took 26 high school students and 7 adults on this life-changing mission to serve and a few weeks later in July, took 26 middle school students and 8 adults for their own mission experience. Thank you for your prayers in preparation and during both trips. We invite you to join us for Lunch and a Mission Discussion, Sunday, September 24 at 12pm in the Fellowship Hall. All are invited to hear our students and adult sponsors talk about how this mission experience changed or impacted their lives.

  • Healing Touch in October

    CONTACT: Barbara Henthorn bhenthorn@cox.net
    Healing Touch is a gift of touch used by Healing Touch Practitioners to aid in the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health of the body’s human energy system. It is a non-invasive technique based on a heart-centered, caring relationship between the practitioner and the person receiving the healing touch to facilitate health and healing. The goal is to restore balance and harmonies in the energy system, placing the person in a position to self-heal. 

    There are no medications or equipment; just an open heart, a set of hands and a willing spirit. Research shows that relaxation and the healing process are enhanced by Healing Touch. It can facilitate a spiritual connection and help with emotional distress. Treatment is done while the person lies on a table, clothing on, and with permission, the practitioner uses the hands with either no touch or a gentle touch to assess the energy in various parts of the body. It often facilitates a calming and relaxation effect. 

    Watch for a date in October when Barbara Henthorn, a Healing Touch Practitioner, will be available for you to sign up to experience what Healing Touch can do for you.
