Student Ministry “Impacts Africa”

Impact africa logoThe Student Ministry of Cedar Ridge Christian Church is actively involved in working with (and helping support) Life in Abundance International, a humanitarian organization whose vision is to empower churches in Africa to serve the poor in many communities. LIA exists to mobilize the local Church and restore health, renew hope and inspire lasting transformation for Africa’s most vulnerable families. This goal is met through an approach that cultivates local leadership through the Church and requires the participation and ownership from the community itself. Learn more about LIA at liaint.org.

Through tithing and the operation of Impact Firewood, our students give financial support to Life in Abundance on a regular basis. In addition, trips to Ethiopia provide many of our students and sponsors the opportunity to experience first-hand the “global outreach” of their efforts.

For more information about Impact Africa, contact Kyle Rodell, Student Minister.

Protecting Your Family from Pornography

Listed below are some practical tools and resources available to help keep pornography out of your home as well providing a way to see what activity is happening on your computer. This information is also available at the Welcome Center of each campus.

www.opendns.com/familyshield
This site is for blocking pornography from getting into your house at the router level. Easy to follow directions are listed on the website.

www.x3watch.com
This site monitors any computer or i-device on which it is installed. Monthly reports are sent out identifying any pornography that has been looked at. The report also alerts you if the program was turned off at any time. Search “x3watch” in the apple app store for iphone/ipad.

Tech Support is available for help in setting up a family shield. Contact Nick Lockard (Remote Service) at www.nicklockard.com.

Foster Care – The 111 Project

On January 1, 2012 there were 8308 children who, through no fault of their own, were in the custody of the Oklahoma Department of Human Services (OKDHS). The families of these children are not able to care for them due to incarceration, extreme poverty, physical abuse, drug abuse, neglect or abandonment. The 111 Project is a campaign to recruit foster families from Oklahoma churches to meet this need. The purpose is to leave no Oklahoma child without a family. Contact the church office for more information about Foster Care applications and other ways that you can be involved.

Wednesday Night Programming
