  • Thank You from Student Ministries!

    CONTACT: Rev. Mark Taylor mtaylor@fccedmond.org 405.341.3544
    Thank you to the individuals and Sunday School Classes who helped finance the Youth’s mission project serving lunch to participants at Church Under the Bridge on Sunday, April 8, 2018. Eighteen youth, along with many adult sponsors, were present to prepare, pack and serve lunch. The Youth and volunteers received a warm welcome on a very cold and windy day. Because of your support, the Youth were able to serve 250 people. There were even leftovers that were given to Breakfast on Boulevard to serve in lunches.

    The Youth would love to share about their experience with Church Under the Bridge. If your Sunday School Class is interested in hearing from the Youth, contact Rev. Mark (above). If you, or your class, did not have the opportunity to help this time, don’t worry - the Youth will be serving again in the Fall. Blessings from the Youth of FCC!

  • Security Team Needs You!

    CONTACT: Stan Steele granstan39@att.net 405.757.5539
    The Security Team is looking for a few good people! This team works on a rotational basis throughout the year and supports the church by being present during church activities. Responsibilities include unlocking and opening doors and classrooms, locking up at the conclusion of events, walking through the church in one of two different areas and even greeting and directing people as they come in! The rotation traditionally runs on Sunday mornings and on Monday and Wednesday evenings - with some special events on Saturdays. The commitment is usually 1-2 times per quarter.

    This position is perfect for anyone who wants to serve and still be present in church activities! If you would like to serve your faith community in this way, contact Stan (above).

  • Come Serve - Hospitality Ministry Needs You!

    CONTACT: Sherrye VanOsdol sherryev2@gmail.com 405.850.7286
    As we continue to offer Radical Hospitality at First Christian, we realize that we need more members welcoming attendees as they enter our building for worship. As a Door Greeter, there are three areas of need - the Fellowship Hall, the West Hall and the Rotunda entrance. Volunteers are asked to take one Sunday a month, and a specific time of 8:45, 9:45, or 10:45am (Volunteers are asked to be at the entrance 15 minutes before worship begins and stay 5 minutes after worship starts.)

    We also need Welcome Desk Greeters to answer the phone and direct any visitors to places they request. This also requires the commitment of one Sunday a month for a one hour time frame (Times available are: 9-10am, 10-11am and 11am-12pm. To serve with FCC's Hospitality Ministry, contact Sherrye (above).
