Following the success of our “feed the hungry” service project during SuperStart in February, our children’s ministry will be sponsoring an on-going missions project to provide sack lunches to homeless/hungry people in downtown Tulsa.
Join us on Saturday, June 1, from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
KidsZone.tv families will gather together at the Broken Arrow Campus at 10:00 a.m. to build sack lunches. We’ll travel downtown together and hand out the lunches to those in need. This event is for your entire family; however, it is not recommended for preschoolers.
- For children 4 years – 5th grade
- 9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
- Cost: $35 (includes a T-shirt and daily snack).
Lots of volunteers are needed in areas such as workers for Preschool & Elementary age groups, set-up, set staging, video & camera tech, greeters, and more. For the children of Music Camp volunteers, there is a discount on the registration fee.
Camera operators are needed for the 10:30 Sunday morning service at the Broken Arrow Campus. No experience is necessary – we’ll provide hands-on training! In addition, we’re looking for volunteers to help with lights during the Sunday worship services.
If you would like to contribute in ministry by serving as part of the video tech team, please contact Harold Pittman, Worship Minister, or call the church office at 918-254-0621.
If you are interested in serving on a rotation basis, or if you would like more information, please contact the ministry leaders shown below or call the church office, 918-254-0621.
The 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.

The Story is a book of selected Scriptures, arranged chronologically, that reads like a novel. During this 31-week experience, every member of the family reads their own version of The Story. It’s a great opportunity to discover how our story is found in God’s story. For several months in 2013, we will take a chronological journey through the major stories of the Bible. If you know some Bible stories, but aren’t sure how they all fit together…or if you would love to read the Bible more often with your kids, but don’t feel very confident in doing so…be sure to participate with us in The Story.

Kyle Rodell, Student Minister, recently presented the sermon “Entangled“ – providing some staggering statistics on how pornography is a sin that can so easily “entangle” and threaten our families. 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.
This site is for blocking pornography from getting into your house at the router level. Easy to follow directions are listed on the website.
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. Nick will answer questions and will walk you through the steps on x3watch.com. There is a small fee ($20) for this support. Be sure to let him know that you are from Cedar Ridge Christian Church.

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.
