Mortgage Pay-Off Challenge

At the recent Congregational Meeting, after learning that we now owe less than $85,000 on our building mortgage, one member’s excited response: “We can pay this off by the end of this year if only 85 families give $1,000 each! My family will be happy to give a $1,000.” The Cedar Ridge elders thought it was a great idea and they all accepted her challenge.

Paying off the mortgage means that we can address other priorities that we have postponed while concentrating on paying off this debt. If your family would also like to accept her challenge and give a $1,000 gift, over and above your regular giving, just mark your check “Mortgage Pay-off Challenge”. If you are excited about helping zero out the debt, but are unable to give $1,000, please feel free to contribute any amount you can.

“Connect One” – Psalm82Three Ministry

Foster Care Ministry logo - smallThe Psalm82Three Ministry (foster care ministry) of Cedar Ridge Christian Church introduces the “Connect One” program – connecting one caring adult with one child in the foster care system.

There are many ways that you can “connect” with a child in varying degrees of time and commitment. Here are some ideas of how you can get involved in the lives of children in the foster care system:

  • Helping with homework at the shelter
  • Meeting a child for lunch at their school
  • Walking a child to their new classroom on the first day of school
  • Taking a teen to watch their high school football, basketball, or soccer game or other school activity
  • Taking a child to their after-school programs
  • Providing a break from the shelter by taking a child to get ice cream, go to dinner, or hang out with your family for a few hours
  • Making a weekly commitment to meet with a child

Basically, there is something for everyone…even if the items listed above don’t appeal to you, we can find an area for you to be involved.

How to get started:

Contact Jenni Hutchins or Marcy Rodell to indicate your interest in this ministry and to get information about obtaining the required training (which is a short training session required by DHS).

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.

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.
