Family Worship Services – Cedar Ridge Coweta

family-worship-services CowetaCedar Ridge Coweta would like to give your family an opportunity to worship together this summer. Mark your calendars for these three Family Worship Sundays:

Minister’s Sabbatical

Worship Minister, Harold Pittman will be on planned sabbatical leave June 1 – June 28. Harold has served on staff at Cedar Ridge for over 13 years and is given this time per our ministerial staff sabbatical policy. Members of a church’s ministerial staff serve in a unique position. The demands are great and often draining physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

The term sabbath means “to cease” or “to rest.” God the Creator modeled it for us in Genesis 2 when He rested (Genesis 2:2-3). He told his people to work the other six days, but to set aside one day per week for rest and worship and he would provide (Leviticus 23:3). You could say it is a discipline of abstinence from the routine activities for the express purpose of becoming more dependent on God.

We are privileged to have Harold, and his wife Kelly, serve our church faithfully for so many years. We ask that you respect Harold’s time away from his church duties and that you pray for Harold to be spiritually and physically renewed.

“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).

Protecting Your Family from Pornography

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.

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. 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.

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.
