6-8 PM • Hardeman Auditorium
ONE VOICE: Glorifying God Together in Jesus Christ
We are living in challenging times that compel us to evaluate our purpose and approaches in living out our faith in Jesus Christ. Oklahoma Christian’s commitment to Churches of Christ remains strong. Our desire to be of service to congregations, families and equip those for ministry is core to our purpose. As you know, participation in multi-day lectureships has been waning throughout our brotherhood.
The time has come to refocus our lectureship time in a different way while accomplishing biblical instruction, encouragement and practical ministry throughout the year in equipping oriented opportunities. Sunday, September 30th the lectureship will re-focus to an OKC Area Wide Worship with preaching ministers sharing Scripture readings, prayers and teaching. A time of dessert and fellowship will follow. We will be asking local congregations to attend in lieu of the evening service. This evening is rooted in Paul’s prayerful longing for diverse believers in Rome and is appropriate for our diverse brotherhood today.
May the God of steadfastness and encouragement grant you to live in harmony with one another, in accordance with Christ Jesus, so that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God. -- Romans 15.5-7
