Love Your Neighbor Challenge – Cedar Ridge Sapulpa

Love Your Neighbor ChallengeEach of us has an opportunity to serve others every day wherever we are (our neighborhoods, our jobs, our schools, etc.). What if we all joined together to make a difference in our community in small ways?  That is what the “Love Your Neighbor Challenge” is all about. It’s about us making a difference right where we are every day.

Cedar Ridge Sapulpa will begin the “Love Your Neighbor Challenge” on Sunday, November 2. Our goal is to serve 400 hours collectively by the end of the year (December 31). We need everyone’s help to reach this goal. Here are some simple ideas to help you get involved:

  • Bake cookies and deliver them to your neighbors
  • Deliver a home cooked meal to someone who can’t get out of the house in the cold weather
  • Visit a nursing home
  • Rake and bag a neighbor’s leaves or weed their garden/flowerbed
  • Offer to drive an elderly neighbor to the store or to a doctor’s appointment
  • Walk a neighbor’s dog or pet sit while they are on vacation
  • Clean up trash in a park or neighborhood
  • Help cook and/or serve a meal at a homeless shelter
  • Gather clothing from your neighbors and donate it to a local shelter
  • Make “I Care” kits with combs, toothbrushes, shampoo, etc. for the homeless
  • Pack and hand out food at a local food bank
  • Adopt a senior citizen”grandfriend” and write him or her letters

Give it some thought and let us know other ideas that you’ve come up with. Be sure to pick up a “Love Your Neighbor Challenge” card in the lobby. Fill it out and share how you have been serving others.

Wednesday Night Programming Begins September 10 at BA Campus

New Wednesday night programming will begin September 10 at the Broken Arrow Campus. This 10-week session will meet from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. and will run through November 19.

Classes for Adults

  • Nehemiah, A Heart That Can Break by Kelly Minter – a study for women
    Nehemiah’s heart was so broken for those in need that he left the comfort of his Persian palace to help them. This study challenges women to let God break their hearts for a hurting, lost world and move them in compassion to lead people to Jesus. Nehemiah is a video study that includes real-life ways to put feet to your faith. Facilitated by Kristi Champ. (Note: An identical Tuesday morning study will run concurrently with this study. It will meet at 10:00 a.m. and will begin on September 9.)
  • To Live is Christ, To Die is Gain – A Study of Philippians by Matt Chandler
    The short book of Philippians is one of the most quoted in the Bible, yet Paul wrote it not for the popular sound bites, but to paint a picture of a mature Christian faith. While many give their lives to Jesus, few then go on to live a life of truly vibrant faith. This study offers tangible ways to develop a faith of pursuing, chasing, knowing, and loving Jesus. Led by Bryan Champ.
  • The Christian (and Not So Christian) History of America, Part 3 - gaining a better understanding of God’s involvement with man and of the American Covenant, a covenant put in writing by the Founding Fathers. We’ll continue to explore the idea that Christianity was not universal in the early colonies as evidenced by slavery and the abolition controversy. Led by Randy Beeson.

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.
