A Pastor’s Perspective

World Outreach Update:

Over the past few months the World Outreach Department has been working diligently, submitting grant applications to ODF (Oklahoma Disciples Foundation) and DWEF (Disciples Women’s Endowment Fund). Requests have a deadline date to be received. If selected, the awarded funds go directly to the designated program.

We are so happy to announce that grants were recently received for the following ministries at First Christian Church Midwest City:

CFO (Christmas For Others): $2500
Mobile Meals: $1800
Blessing Bags: $600
Supplemental Feeding Program: $1078
Welcome Home Baskets: $500

The grant request process is very time consuming. There’s specific paperwork and documentation that’s required with each one. We are so thankful and blessed to have ministry leaders who have a heart and determination to do what it takes to be able to assist people in need. So many lives will continue to be shown the unconditional love of God through First Christian Church Midwest City!

Great work!

The chancel flowers serve a few purposes. It’s a way to honor your loved one, they add to the beauty of the sanctuary, and following the service the bouquets are delivered to two of our shut in members.

Please note, the cost of the flowers will go up beginning in January to $55.00 per week. This is the first price increase in several years.
Thank you for understanding the need for the increase.

Please contact the church office with new prayer concerns and with updates on those who are listed.
Thank you!
