A Word From Mike…

NEW MEMBERSHIP EDUCATION CLASSES

Children & Youth:
We will be offering a three week membership education class for children and youth.  Mike and Dustin will be leading this class together.  The class will look at the basics of Christianity and what is involved in making a commitment to become a Christian.  Please contact the church office to sign up your child or youth for this class.

Adult:       “Desserts and Discussion” 
This will be an opportunity for a brief review of Christianity and an explanation of the history and beliefs of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).  The gathering will take place at Rev. Snell’s home at 6:30 p.m. on April the 2nd.  Please contact the church office to sign up and so we can make sure we have plenty of dessert!

PROVERBS BIBLE STUDY

Our Wednesday night Bible Study on Proverbs will start again on March 15th.  We will meet at 6:30 in our church library.

Thanks for sharing the journey,
Mike

FCC Youth

On Wednesday Evening, March 8th, There will be Wednesday night Youth Group with worship music, a lesson over Ephesians chapter 2, and the students will participate in Communion to end the service. Dinner will be served at 6 p.m. and the lesson will start at 6:30. If possible, please try to arrive on time. We do many activities on Wednesday nights, and I want to make sure that the students get the full experience before the 8:00 p.m. pick up time.

On Sunday Evening March 12th, Dustin will be on Vacation in Sacramento, so Kristyn Reid has volunteered to lead the Sunday evening service/activity. Thanks so much Kristyn!

Elevation Trip

On Sunday Evening, March 19th, The youth will meet at the JCAC to have a fun trip to Elevation Jump park in Moore. We will jump for an hour at Elevation and then head back! Prices are $11 per jumper plus tax, so please make sure your students bring those funds so they can jump and have a blast! It does not cost anything to come watch if you would like to join your students and don’t plan on jumping.

Late Summer Camp Registration:
If your student did not complete their paperwork and payment on Camp Sunday, you have until April 18th to contact Dustin to register with thelowest discounted price. Please note that there is not a guarantee that a spot will be open. Also if you want to register your student after April 18th, you will be responsible for paying the full, undiscounted price of registration.


If you have any students that would potentially be interested in youth group, please contact Dustin at 918-637-4407. He would love to reach out to try to include them in the bunch, thanks!

Opportunity For Our
Church Veterans

Pete Tucker is one who is setting a wonderful example for us of what it is to do ministry beyond our church walls. Each week Pete travels to Norman   to help veterans accurately review and receive their disability benefits. He volunteers his services as part of a non-profit veteran’s organization, The Dale K. Graham Veterans Foundation. Pete has also worked to help multiple members of our church who unknowingly were not receiving their full benefits. These financial benefits are helpful to the veterans and of equal importance, to their families.

Pete will be in our church on Wednesday mornings beginning March 22nd from 9-11 AM and will meet with veterans on a first come first serve basis. We are blessed and fortunate to have him offering this opportunity for our veterans.

Please be sure to
bring your DD-214.
