  • Alternative Christmas Market

    CONTACT: Brian Kilpatrick blkilpatrick@sbcglobal.net 405.330.0836

    The Outreach Ministry Team invites you to make a difference this Christmas by making donations through the Alternative Christmas Market. Your donation will support ministry needs in our church and around the world. The Market will be open each Sunday in the Rotunda beginning November 29 and ending December 20. This year the market will include options to donate to First Christian Church Benevolence Fund (aiding those in urgent need), Child Care Center Ministry Scholarship Fund (for CCCM families in financial hardship), and the First Christian Church Mission Fund with Oklahoma Disciples Foundation (a matching fund that supports international mission initiatives). Gift amounts of $5, $25, $50, and $100 can be donated. With your donation, you will receive a greeting card and envelope to share with your gift recipients. Christmas is a season of sharing the light of Christ with the world. A donation to one of these needs would be an excellent way to shine that light with your family and loved ones.

  • Breakfast on Boulevard - Serving More than the Hungry

    CONTACT: Mickey Stufflebean mstufflebean@cox.net 405.341.4742

    When Carol Roberts and Patty Gray McKibbin started BOB in 1990, their mission was to follow Christ’s teachings to “feed my sheep” and serve all who are hungry. Although only one college student ate breakfast its inaugural morning, by the end of the first full year, BOB had served over 3,000 meals. Now, 25 years later, Breakfast on Boulevard serves approximately 2,600 breakfasts, along with distributing over 2,200 sack lunches each month.

    Over the years, the BOB coordinators and volunteers have realized serving those who are hungry has never been just about the food. It has been about helping people and cultivating relationships; the interactions between the workers and those who come each morning for a hot meal and the relationships formed between people from all over Edmond who come together to prepare the food.

    It takes over 120 volunteers to coordinate, shop, prepare, and serve BOB each month. A few faithful volunteers have been with the ministry from the beginning, including John and Dot Hammond. Originally signing up to work BOB twice a month, they answered the call and became the regular Thursday morning “openers.” Dot’s sausage gravy with biscuits have been a Thursday morning favorite ever since. John retired his service to BOB after his 86th birthday and now, after 25 years of service, Dot has retired her whisk. “It grows on you,” she said. “It’s a privilege to serve as the hands, feet and heart of Jesus Christ through this ministry.”

    Do you feel called to feed all who are hungry? Are you looking to be a part of something, cultivate relationships and form friendships? Be a part of Breakfast on Boulevard. Contact Mickey (above) or Judy Griffis at 405.348.1443.
