  • OFF THE RAILS - CURRENT SERMON SERIES

    “What happened?” “How did we get here?” These are the questions the people of God asked while suffering the exile. What can we learn from the stories in I and II Samuel? How do we keep from going off the rails?

  • OK Justice Circle - Pray during week of July 21st

    ⏩"If you are not intending for peace, then you are allowing for violence,⏪ Pastor Jon, last Sunday as he shared about his work with the Oklahoma Justice Circle. He and the team leave Sunday, July 21st for D.C. to host a Breaking Bread Luncheon with leaders to discuss issues related to racism. 🙏🏽 We invite you to join us in prayer for them as they do this holy work. 


    Ten Breaking Bread Luncheons have already been held, and there will be more. They are free, and we invite you to attend November 12 at the First Americans Museum over lunch.  We encourage you to check out more about this vital work: facebook.com/okjusticecircle

  • FREE Narcan training - Wednesday, July 24th, 6:30pm

    We will be hosting a FREE virtual Narcan Training with Kevin Nye: writer, advocate, abolitionist, Christian, author of "Grace Can Lead Us Home: A Christian Call to End Homelessness." Wednesday, July 24th, 6:30-7:45, CCC Room 3. You can join us there for the zoom meeting, or join off-site from your personal computer. Email alissaclairegilmore@outlook.com to sign up and receive the zoom link. 


    The FDA has approved Naloxone overdose reversal spray for over-the-counter non-prescription use. (Learn more about Naloxone/Narcan here.) Being trained to use Narcan is really easy. It’s such an effective tool and easy to use. If you know how to use it and have it when you need it, it can be life or death for someone God loves. You can order free Narcan through a local Oklahoma organization here. You can order at any time; you do not need to have it before the class.


    Kevin: "If Jesus were around in the age of Narcan, I absolutely believe he would carry it, even if he didn’t 'need' it. Carrying Narcan is a way of saying to drug users, perhaps the most hurting and maligned group in our country, that you deserve to live, to participate in community, and that the community will learn how to keep you alive for as long as you need. It says to the powers and authorities that criminalize drug use so maliciously that we will keep fighting for drug users to stay alive despite the ways our system tries to erase them. This is Jesus-like behavior through and through."
