    By John Hurd As my friend Jorge and I sat down to speak with a group of teachers from Caballo Blanco, there was one teacher that stood out to me. She was called Chiqui, which means “shorty” in Spanish. While her small stature was very true to the meaning of her name, Jorge and I both came to the conclusion that what she lacks in size, she more than makes up for with a generous and caring spirit. The school where Chiqui works is located 20 miles or so inland from the Pacific coast of Guatemala. She has been working there for...

    By Morgan Wright DaySpring South is life changing for anyone who attends, especially teens. Teens today are constantly distracted from God. Cross Point Camp is the perfect place for teenagers to grow closer to God, have fun, learn more about the Bible and connect to friends. I have experienced God's love like never before during DaySpring activities, including communion, Bible study, workshop, BASIC, worship, walking among the trees and swimming in the lake. A typical day at camp starts off with communion at the cross overl...

    By Chad Hoffman Recreation has always been an important part of my life, and I believe that teamwork is a very important part of recreation, whether it be as a VBS leader, volunteer or participant. Sports ministry is a great way to reach all kids and adults, especially those that don’t feel comfortable in big groups. That’s why I think Hero Central VBS is going to be an awesome time. At Hero Central VBS, we will be learning about three Bible heroes and how God can give us strength when we feel weak. We have one game that al...

    “It is better to live in a desert than with a quarrelsome and ill-tempered wife” (Proverbs 21:19). It is one thing to read this lighthearted admonition in a Bible study in the comfort of your living room. It is quite another to read it while standing here: Chantelle and I are fine! Really!! Even after leading a 12-day pilgrimage through the Holy Land of Israel and sharing a room and a bathroom with our 18-year-old son Noah. The point I am hoping to make is that “the land” really is the “fifth Gospel” as many have said befor...

    By Jeff Hedrick As we approach Father’s Day, I am reminded of how blessed I am to be a father. Seeing my son Marc grow into a responsible adult has been one of my most fulfilling accomplishments in my life. That is not to say that it was all smooth sailing, because there were certainly waves in the ocean along the way. My son, for example, endured a father that gave too much attention to a career, was not as patient as he should have been and often expected him to be too much like I wished I were. At the age of 13, a divorc...

    By Joetta Myers Summer is here and it’s time for swimming, vacationing, staycationing and fun with family and friends! I love this time of year and one of my favorite parts of summer is VBS!!! This year is no different with Hero Central as our Vacation Bible School theme. We are excited to dig into heroes of the Bible and discover our strength in God. As we are approaching VBS, I have been pondering how my experiences as a former elementary school teacher can relate to my experience being on the Acts 2 staff during VBS. I t...

    Acts 2 partnered up with Living Water International, an organization helping communities acquire clean water, to raise money for a piece of drilling equipment needed to drill in certain locations in Guatemala with difficult geographical barriers. Check out the video below to see how your missions offerings are supporting missions outside of Acts 2's walls, including providing funding for our friends at Living Water International.

    By Briana Tobey I first met Andy and Melissa in high school at a church conference. A few years later we were all in college together at OCU, even taking some of the same classes. So, when I heard that Andy was appointed to my church home, Acts 2, as our associate pastor I was excited. Then, Andy started talking about a new church within a church and I think my heart was already in it before I even really understood what it was. I had an opportunity to support my friend in his first attempt at church planting, and I knew I ...

    Here are the top 10 reasons why I’m crazy excited about One Church Worship at 6:30 p.m. on May 26 in the Acts 2 chapel. #LifeGoals. The goal of One Church is to move into the chapel on the Acts 2 campus. In order to realize this goal, additional space must be created for the children and youth that currently occupy that space. We have not realized this goal yet, which is why it is exciting to talk about Friday Night Worship on May 26. We’ll be sprucing up the chapel with all of the cool stuff from One Church like lights, up...

    By Chantelle Foster When I became a mom for the first time on August 2, 1996, my doctor, Susan Chambers, said something profound to me. I had just survived a difficult delivery with John Mark, when I looked up at Dr. Chambers and said, “That was the hardest thing I’ve ever done!” She replied, “No, the hardest thing you’ll ever do is raising this child!” Her profoundly wise statement has stuck with me these past 20 years. I recently reminded her of this statement and we both had a good laugh! She spoke that truth to me as sh...

    We have big God questions before us, “What is God calling us to do?” “Is it time for us to build?” “What kind of facility has the potential to release the most benefit to the most people in this season?” “What will honor God, draw others to Jesus and bless the world?” Why now? We are approaching our fourth year of not having enough space for children and youth on Wednesday nights and many Sunday mornings. In August of 2014, our attendance jumped with the addition of the new 500-seat sanctuary. The sanctuary space continues ...

    Teresa Hedrick was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease at the age of 25. She was eventually placed on the transplant list and posted about it on her Facebook page. Misty Blankenship saw the post. Both women are members of Acts 2 but didn’t really know each other at the time. Two and a half years ago, Misty felt God leading her to see if she was a match to donate her kidney to Teresa, and it turned out that she was. Teresa and Misty shared their story about seeking God and being in community at Acts 2 in honor of Nation...

    My wife and I worked our way through seminary by making crosses. I had learned how to carve from an artist in my grandmother’s hometown, John Christopher White. I spent most Fridays of my three semesters in college in his workshop as he taught me about carving and what it meant to follow Jesus. You can check out his work here. During our first Lent in seminary, I had the idea to cut West Texas mesquite thorns and weave them into crowns of thorns for Easter. What I didn’t realize was how painful of an enterprise it would bec...

    After my Kansas Jayhawks got knocked out of the NCAA Tournament, I pretended not to pay attention to the championship game between the University of North Carolina and Gonzaga University. I even mostly didn’t see the news coverage of the parade back in Chapel Hill. Congrats, North Carolina (not really). In 2008, I was in the first year of my studies at Kansas when we won the national championship. Classes were unofficially canceled the following week as planned and unplanned celebrations took place all over Lawrence. Out of...

    Acts 2 has been a huge blessing for us during a very difficult time in our lives. We had been attending off and on (Easter/Christmas Eve) for a while prior to joining, but we have since found a home and a safe haven during a difficult time of recovery. Our story began in the spring of 2006 after I, Ryan, moved to Oklahoma from Texas. Terri was a teller at the bank where I opened up a business account and we had an immediate connection. We were engaged in June 2008 and married in May 2009. Our son was born in May 2011 and ha...

    What’s happening at One Church for the next four Sundays? We are celebrating our Grand Opening – March Madness style! What does that mean? Good question! This Sunday, March 26, come to One Church worship at 10 a.m. at Frontier Elementary in your favorite basketball team gear. After, hang out with us in the gym where we are having basketball-themed games. Play some games, win prizes and eat concession-style food – it’s going to be a blast! Next Sunday, April 2, we are making a difference. One Church is not only a fun, new co...

    As a 6th grader, I was confirmed in the little rural church of Coweta First United Methodist Church. I’ll never forget our pastor, Rev. Helen Taylor, inviting Ellen Lowery to speak to our Confirmation class and share about her personal relationship with Jesus. Ellen was in her eighties by then. She had lived a lot of life and she was overjoyed to get to share it with us. In preparation, Helen asked our class of about 12 motley kids ranging in age from about 10 – 15 what we thought God looked like. Most of us described somet...

    Lent begins on Wednesday, March 1 and marks a 40-day period of fasting, repentance and self-examination before Easter. If you would like to read a short description of Lent, you can click here . With Lent, Christians have fasted as a means to focus on God. Types of fasting can include giving up sweets, going out to eat or all things electronic and/or social media. For my wife and I, our standard Lent fast has normally been giving up Diet Cokes from Sonic or giving them up altogether. This year, we were challenged to not onl...

    What’s the difference? Most often when I tell people about what I am doing they ask me this question, “What is the difference between One Church and Acts 2?” I know what they are asking. They want to know how the service at One Church differs from Acts 2 or any other congregation in northeast Edmond. The answer, though, is complicated. Sure, at One Church, we are worshipping in an elementary school, so there’s an inherent relaxed feeling. We hope that people who attend feel comfortable in a way they might not feel in a trad...
