  • Back to School Support for Ida Freeman!

    CONTACT: Shelley Regan sregan@fccedmond.org or 405.414.3544 
    Our Back-to-School drive this year will support our community partner Ida Freeman Elementary! There are two ways YOU can help. We are collecting supplies for classrooms and food for the pantry and weekend backpack program. Bring donations by Sunday, August 18 to the Ida Freeman table in the Fellowship Hall.

    CLASSROOM SUPPLY DRIVE: Just as we've done in years past with school supply backpack drives, we’ll do the same but for teachers who on average spend more than $740 of their own money each year on supplies, and parties for their classrooms. Needed items: Kleenex, Hand Sanitizer, Colored Pencils, #2 Pencils, Crayola Washable Markers (Small & Large). Another church provides backpacks of supplies for every child at Ida, so we’ve decided to help the teachers who go the extra mile every day to prepare tomorrow’s graduates!

    FOOD DRIVE: Throughout the school year, Ida Freeman partners with the Regional Food Bank sending backpacks of food home with children on Fridays to prevent hunger over the weekend. We’ve been asked to help restock the pantry at Ida Freeman because the Food Bank program doesn’t officially begin until late September. Needed Items: Granola & breakfast bars, oatmeal packets, diced peaches in juice (4 oz cups), applesauce (4 oz cups), Ramen noodles, Vienna sausages, cans of ravioli, vegetable beef soup or chicken noodle soup, small packs of goldfish crackers.

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

    CONTACT: Erin Robertson erincrobertson@gmail.com 405.471.9386
    Bright Sky Ministry was formed to assist families who are caring for at-risk children in their greatest time of need. The work these families do is inspirational, and we would like nothing more than to help them succeed in this journey. Caring for at-risk children can be both challenging and extremely rewarding. The impact that they are making on their future cannot be overstated. We would like to be there to help decrease the stress that often occurs providing for these new family members and let them focus on parenting. Check out more about this fantastic group at www.brightskyministry.com In August, we are collecting $5 or $10 gift cards to either Target or Walmart. You may bring these to the st|GL display in Fellowship Hall on Sundays August 11, 18, or 25 where Erin Robertson will receive them for Bright Sky.

    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/

  • Ways to Serve Our Children and Families

    CONTACT: Jennifer Humphrey jhumphrey@fccedmond.org or 405.341.3544
    There are many ways to serve in Children's Ministry - your help makes a huge difference in the lives of our kids! Be a Sunday School Leader! One of the most rewarding opportunities you can have as a leader in Children’s Ministry is to teach Sunday school. As a Sunday school leader, you could open the door for a child to encounter, or re-encounter, God. By being a consistent leader, a child will find another adult with whom he/she can connect and trust within our church family. Curriculum is provided. No previous experience is required; what ARE required - commitment, patience, and a love for children! Commitment: Sundays, every other Sunday - 1-year commitment.

    Be a Children Worship & Wonder Greeter! During Children Worship & Wonder, children will hear Bible stories and learn about God while experiencing the presence of God. The children learn the meaning of church traditions and will participate in their own worship. Greeters help facilitate the service. CW&W is offered during the 9 & 11am worship services for ages 3 through 1st grade. To be a CW&W greeters, some training is required. Commitment: Sundays, during either the 9 or 11am service – approximately 1 time, every other month

    Join in the fun of working together with other families as we serve the littlest among us. “Children are a gift from the LORD” - Psalm 127:3. Thanks be to God!
