A Word From Mike…

This coming Sunday, April 9th, we will have a special ELDER EMERITUS service that will take place during second service.  Johnny Clemons and Carol Barber Hamilton will be given the designation of Elder Emeritus.  This is a great honor within the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) where we express appreciation for years of
dedicated leadership and service.  Immediately after the service our youth will be hosting a baked potato luncheon to raise money for their summer mission trip. As time allows for Johnny and Carol, this will also serve as a time where we can individually thank them for their faithfulness to our congregation.

Thanks for sharing the journey!

FCC Youth

On Wednesday Evening, April 5th, There will be Wednesday night Youth Group with worship music, a lesson over Ephesians chapter 3. A meal will be provided at 6:00 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 want to make sure that the students get the full experience before the 8:00 p.m. pick up time.

Youth Potato Bar Luncheon:

We need every student that plans to go on the Kansas City mission trip to be present to help serve and clean up for the Potato Bar Luncheon. This event will be a great opportunity for the group to serve the church that allows them to go on awesome trips like these. We are very excited to fellowship together with everyone, and all the proceeds will go to helping impact a community with the gospel of Jesus!

On Sunday Evening, April 9th, We will not be having Sunday night youth service to give the students time with their family after the Potato Luncheon.

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 the lowest discounted price. Please note that there is not a guarantee that a spot will be open. In addition, if you want to register your student after April 18th, you will be responsible for paying the full, undiscounted price of registration.

Thanks – Dustin

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 from 9-11 AM to 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.

Attention Everyone!

New this year we are going to have an egg roll just like they do on The White House lawn!!! We need your help filling the Easter eggs. We are requesting donations of candy, treats and small prizes to fill the plastic eggs with. Please NO chocolate as it melts fast and attracts ants. Please leave donations in the church office, MegaWoW room or with any Education department member.
