    by Nicole Mourning Adam and I both grew up in church, but we had never been members of a church as a married couple. When our son Will was 2-years-old and I was pregnant with Jake, we decided it was time to find a church home in Edmond. After googling "United Methodist churches near me,” we visited several churches in the area and finally came to a service at Acts 2. We felt comfortable with the childcare the moment we arrived, and it seemed like Mark was speaking directly to us through his sermons. The fact that we left ch...

    By Carolyn Smith Watch Carolyn's Spotlight video More than 19 years ago (Yikes! That went fast!), I was looking through the newspaper when something odd caught my eye. It was an article about a new United Methodist Church NOT meeting on Sunday and NOT ensconced in their own building. My curiosity got the best of me… kind of like my cat who shot out the door last night, looking for a better land…but I digress. So I decided to go and check it out. There was NO choir, NO organ, NO padded pews. What was there was much more impo...

    by Bryan Heathcock Choices. Life’s full of them. Left or right? Heels or flats? Go for the green in two or layup? Most choices don’t carry much significance when you think about it, but where to go to church…that seems to be a choice that carries a little more weight. That’s where my family was in the spring of 2007. We were new to Edmond but not new to church. My wife and I both grew up in church and the desire to find a church family for ourselves and our young daughters was a choice we both agreed on. I came from a non-d...

    By Kyle Kaneaster Capital Campaign Chair On Tuesday, Feb. 20, we began a discussion about future plans for our church. Our initial discussion gathering included church leadership and those serving weekly in ministry areas. We’ve compiled some details from that initial discussion that we are excited to begin sharing with our entire worshipping community. Our goal at the gathering was not to determine the exact details, size or scope of a building project. Instead, we were collecting information regarding the concerns and des...

    When my wife, Jonalyn, and I first moved back to Oklahoma after 16 years in Colorado, it seemed logical that we would go back to the church we had left. After 3 years, it finally dawned on us that something was missing. Had we changed or had the church changed? Anyway, we began looking for a new experience that was more in keeping with our newly found spiritual goals. We wanted some of the traditional worship but with a more contemporary feel. After visiting several churches, we came to Acts 2. It was as though our spiritua...

    by Elizabeth Nowlin Do you ever let fear stand in the way of getting involved? In our Sunday youth class, we are learning how to live unafraid. Participating in service projects has been my favorite part of being in Acts 2 youth and has made me more confident in my faith. One of my favorite service projects was spending a weekend volunteering at Cookson Hills Center United Methodist Mission in northeastern Oklahoma. First, our group installed a French drainage system to fix an area of flooding. We dug a large trench, hauled...

    By Melissa Nelms As a community at Acts 2, we remember our strategy together in worship every week found in Acts 2:42 where it reads, “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” This perfectly describes our worship experience each weekend as we gather to connect with God through Scripture, preaching, prayer and Communion. It’s through the connection with God in worship that we receive our holy fuel, our Holy Spirit power, to go out and then connect with ...

    By Joetta Myers On your mark, get set, go!!!! It’s a grand time watching the little ones waiting for the signal and then racing to see if they can find the perfect amount of eggs to fill their baskets. Watching them open their eggs to see the treat that awaits is a reminder to me to remain joyfully expectant in this Easter season. With all this on my mind, I know it’s almost time for our annual Easter Egg-Stravaganza here at Acts 2. The event is from 4-6 p.m. on Sunday, March 25. We’ve been preparing for this day for severa...

    By Melissa Nelms Every Confirmation class takes on its own unique personality because of the unique giftedness of the mentors and the unique personalities and perspectives of the students. This year is no different. This year’s Confirmation class has been a joy and a blessing to work with. My gratitude for the adult and youth mentors who have sacrificed and invested their time in guiding our confirmands through this journey of faith and discernment is without measure. For the third year in a row James Rose, Cathy Rose and B...

    By Chantelle Foster Our business at Acts 2 UMC isn’t about making insiders comfortable, it’s about making room for more people to be about God’s mission. Someone who doesn’t have a church home. Someone who is in need of God’s love. Someone who is hurting or lonely. Someone in need of forgiveness and truth. Someone who longs to follow Jesus. Someone who is unsure but knows their life isn’t working as it is. Someone like you! Acts 2 Exploration is an event held about every 6 weeks designed specifically for our guests! I think...

    By Cayla Charles Confirmation is a truly life-changing experience. It helps you become closer to God and build a stronger relationship with Him and the amazing people around you that are on a similar journey. I have experienced something that I never have before - something amazing – through Confirmation events including Camp Canyon, new worship experiences and class every Sunday. Confirmation is a wonderful way to grow closer to God and build your faith. With Confirmation being such a great experience, I have so many favor...

    By Melissa Nelms “He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner… giving them food and clothing.” -Deuteronomy 10:18 If you ask any youth-age student what their favorite thing is about youth group and what they wish their youth group could do more often, I guarantee you that 99% of the time they will say lock-ins. Lock-ins! As adults, the luster of lock-ins has worn off. Minimal sleep on a hard floor in a Sunday school classroom isn’t necessarily our idea of a fun time. So when you add a 30-ho...

    By Russell and Maree Jones We move around a lot due to Russell's job, and when we relocated from Florida to Oklahoma, our family was pretty lonely. Oklahoma is the furthest we’ve ever lived from “home,” and we knew we needed to establish some kind of community here. But how do you even begin connecting with total strangers? After we began attending Acts 2, we knew we wanted to get more involved, as well as become members and hopefully make some friends along the way. That’s when we saw something called Dinner For Eight (D48...

    By Jim & Tracy Hill Jim Hill: I grew up in Healdton, Oklahoma. It is a small town where everyone knows each other. We went to the Baptist church where I attended Sunday school and VBS. My family attended Sunday mornings and nights, as well as classes on Wednesday nights. One of my biggest memories of church was the Sunday my brother and I were baptized. The pastor could break out in prayer at any time and he chose to break into prayer when he immersed me. The prayer was almost longer than I could hold my breath. I thought I...

    by April Yarholar People say there is no love like a mother’s love. And since becoming a mother myself, I now have a better understanding of the raw nature of love that is between a parent and child. I understand the words my mom used to say to me, “Maybe you’ll understand when you become a mother.” A lot of the things she used to say to me make more sense now. I wish I could tell her that along with about a million other things. I lost my mom back in 2011. She lived 8 years with the aftermath of a massive stroke which took...

    By Melissa Nelms “The angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.” -Luke 1:30 When I read Mary’s story in the Gospel of Luke a painful image comes to mind. Now when most people read this story, or at least the commentaries I’ve read, Mary is seen as the ever-humble, ever-obedient, overjoyed expectant teen mother of our Lord and Savior. No questions. No doubts. No fears. Really?! An angel of the Lord appears to this 14-year-old girl, who is engaged but not yet married, and tells her she is ...

    By Joetta Myers I remember my daughter asking me about Advent when she was a little girl. I told her Advent is the time when we prepare ourselves to celebrate the birth of Jesus and thank God for this great blessing. I went on to tell her that a blessing is something given to us for which we can be thankful. Recently, I was listening to the K-Love radio station and they said being grateful for your blessings was actually good for your well-being and health. Then, as Pastor Mark was preaching during the “Taking the Next Step...

    By Creighton Alexander At the end of October, my oldest son Canon earned his Eagle Scout rank with 10 other boys in our troop back in Ada. It was a big day that we got to celebrate with two of his grandparents and our family and friends. He also received a lot of cards and gifts from family and friends who wanted to celebrate his accomplishment. Three weeks in, his mom and I are on him to write thank you notes to everyone who helped him either earn his Eagle or celebrated with him. While gratitude is not explicitly mentione...

    By Michael Dukes For as far back as I can remember, I loved money and hated parting ways with my money. Whether it was the $3 allowance I received every other week as a child or the money I earned doing yard work, I only had interest in stashing the money away and collecting as much as I could. I did this so that one day I could live like Uncle Scrooge, complete with afternoon swims in a swimming pool full of gold coins. It was not until I got married that I first realized that the money I coveted might not be entirely mine...

    By Kyle Kaneaster My name is Kyle Kaneaster, and I serve as the Finance Committee Chairperson here at Acts 2. I was raised in the church but had an event in my teenage years that caused me to distance myself from God. I stopped going to church until I was married. My wife, Shannon, was raised in the Methodist church. We found Acts 2 in 2003, and after attending for about a year, participating in Disciple Bible Study and many discussions with Mark, I opened my heart and mind to God's plan once again. When Shannon and I joine...
