One Voice (Lectureship)

OKC Area-wide Worship One Voice

Join us for an evening of glorifying God together in One Voice on Sunday, September 30 from 6-8 p.m. in Hardeman Auditorium inside Garvey Center at Oklahoma Christian University. Linger afterward for fellowship and dessert deliciously provided by the Oklahoma Christian Women's Association. 

Formerly Lectureship, One Voice encourages the church according to the wisdom of Romans. The diverse church of Jews and Gentiles were called to live the gospel of God's grace together - a timely message for Churches of Christ, a diverse people standing firmly in the centrality of scripture, baptism by immersion, weekly communion and godly character. Our common commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ empowers unity in our diversity!

Let's worship a God who is worthy of our praise together in One Voice!

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.

Participation in traditional, multi-day lectureships has been waning throughout our brotherhood. Ministry Equipping Days throughout the year will refocus our lectureship time to accomplish biblical instruction, encouragement and practical ministry. Sunday, September 30th the lectureship will transition to an OKC area-wide worship with preaching ministers sharing Scripture readings, prayers and teaching.  A time of dessert and fellowship will follow. Local congregations can attend in lieu of Sunday evening service or encourage members to come after regular services. 

This evening is rooted in Paul’s prayerful longing for unity among 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

Please pray for our students as they learn, grow and serve. Sharing and living the good news of Jesus Christ happens every day at OC!  

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. We look forward to seeing you on campus.
