“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. You may not be ready for a weekly commitment that includes providing a break from the shelter, but there are still ways to impact the lives of the children in the foster care system.

Some areas that you might be interested in include:

  • 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:

Indicate your interest in this ministry by contacting Jenni Hutchins or Marcy Rodell. Then plan to attend a two-hour training session on Wednesday, January 21, from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the BA Campus. Childcare will be available upon request during the training. To sign up, please contact the church office, 918-254-0621.

Nehemiah studyNehemiah, A Heart That Can Break…
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.

Kelly Minter is the author of Nehemiah, A Heart That Can Break. We’re looking forward to having Kelly with us for the 30th Annual Christian Women’s Retreat scheduled at Cedar Ridge in September, 2015.

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.

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.

Sapulpa Campus Backpack Food Program

Cedar Ridge Sapulpa is teaming up with the Sapulpa Ministerial Alliance and Caring Community Friends (formerly Sapulpa Community Care) to discreetly provide nutritious, child-friendly, easy-to-prepare food for chronically hungry children to take home over the weekends. In some cases, the only meal a child receives is from their school cafeterias. The Backpack Food Program allows for food to be provided confidentially in backpacks each Friday afternoon to ensure kids have something to eat during the weekend.

Backpack food programs have been shown to increase attendance, decrease behavior problems, improve concentration abilities of students, and improve student academic achievement.

Two ways that you can be involved in this program:

  • Make a cash donation: tax-deductible donations can be made to help purchase food items. Checks should be made payable to Cedar Ridge; be sure to write “Backpack Program” in the notation area on your check.
    • $4 will fill one backpack each week
    • $16 will fill one backpack each week for a month
    • $104 will support one child for an entire school year
  • Make a food donation: foods must be kid-friendly, shelf stable, easy-to-prepare, and nutritionally sound. Purchase specific items (in bulk) such as individual servings of dry cereal, pudding cups, fruit cups, vienna sausages, beef jerky, juice boxes, etc. Pick up a list of these items near the display in the foyer.

Please join us in this effort to feed hungry kids in our community. For more information, contact Bryan King, Sapulpa Campus Minister.
