You’ve heard me talk recently about a new book study coming up over N.T. Wright’s, Simply Christian. Simply Christian is a modern attempt at what C.S. Lewis brilliantly accomplished in Mere Christianity 60 years earlier: an account of Christianity that makes sense and gets to the core of Christian faith. Wright says of his book: “this isn’t about how to be an Anglican (which I happen to be) or a Catholic or a Presbyterian or anything else… It’s about what I see as the very central heart of the Christian faith. And, no surprises, the book is quite a bit about Jesus, quite a bit about God, and what that all means for us.” Our Simply Christian study will address the central topics of God and Israel, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, Worship and Prayer, Scripture and Church—never leaving behind the essential question of “what that all means for us.”

I hope you’ll consider signing up for this 8-week study that begins on Sunday, February 4th at 6pm. The deadline to sign up is January 28th. Sign up at this link. Feel free to respond to this email with any questions.

Quiz is coming and we need your help to make it happen! You do not need prior experience to help in any of the capacities listed in the graphic above. Hosting a team is as simple as opening your home to a small group of Junior High boys or girls (plus their adult sponsors) for one night. If you want to help in the quiz rooms, you’ll receive a training on how to do that. The bottom line: we need your help! Questions? Contact Stacy Lee (405-551-5728‬) or Abby Godfrey (405-240-6120‬).

Thank you to all who braved the elements to come and hear from A. & M. A. last Sunday! And thank you to everyone who helped host and provide meals. You still have two opportunities to support them if you’d like:

  1. Sign up as a prayer partner. You will receive an email periodically regarding their latest ministry efforts along with a list of ways that you can support them in prayer. Sign up here.
  2. Send financial support. We took up a “love offering” on Sunday. That money will get sent to EFM this week but you still have time to send in a check if you’d like to. Call the church office for more information or stop by.

Special Opportunity – January 28th
