    By Janean Hazelwood Janean Hazelwood has been a member of Acts 2 since 2015. As part of our Grateful series, she is sharing how gratitude has made a difference in her life. The last ten years have brought some of the most daunting challenges of my life. They have also brought unexpected joy and taught me to trust God’s grace. Through it all, I have learned to live with a heart of gratitude. I believe we have choices throughout our lifetime, and these choices are guided by what we know about the situation at the time the cho...

    By Jeff Hedrick I spent most of my life consumed by working hard to ensure I had enough for my future. Looking back, I don’t believe this was out of a sense of greed, but rather the fear that comes from relying solely on myself. So, five years ago, I left my job in the corporate world and began working for Acts 2 as the Business Administrator. At the age of fifty-four, my plan was to give back by working for a church or non-profit and earn enough to sustain myself until I was ready to retire. After spending some thirty-two ...

    By Stacy Bozarth “Some women fear the fire. Others tend their God-given fire and use it to light up their hearts and the world. Let’s be THOSE women.” As I heard those words spoken in a video this week at MOPS, I literally cheered out loud. MOPS is our Mothers of Preschoolers group, and I am excited to be back in my role as a mentor mom. I am already feeling thankful to be in the room with a bunch of amazing younger (than me) women. As I heard those words I thought, “YES, not only do I want to be THAT woman, but I also want...

    By Melissa Nelms Stifling heat. Long days. Hard work. A little blood, a little sweat, and a whole lot of Jesus. Sounds like the perfect way for a group of teenagers from Edmond, Okla. to spend a week of summer vacation. Well, maybe not, but Hailey Grimmett and her friends can’t wait to go back next summer. Why? Because working on a hot roo f in Memphis, Tenn. is where she experiences God. Last June, Hailey and a group of 17 high school youth and 7 adult leaders from Acts 2 spent a week partnering with Service Over Self (SOS...

    By Melissa Nelms Confirmation is a journey. It’s an opportunity for students and their families to learn about their faith, the roots of Christianity, and how to profess and live out their faith in community. For some, it’s the next step in a journey they’ve been on since their baptism as an infant. For some, it’s the first step in their journey to follow Jesus. For others, it’s a return to the journey after a time of searching and wandering. For Kian Hickey and his family, the Confirmation journey fell into this third cate...

    By Megan Engelhard Three months ago, I was on my way home from my job at a large corporate office when my phone rang. I didn’t recognize the number, so I let it go to voicemail. A few minutes later, a new message popped up on my phone from Melissa Nelms, the Director of Discipleship at Acts 2, asking me to interview for the position of Children’s Director. A few phone calls, interviews and many prayers later, I was hired and dove into the exciting life of children’s ministry. As the Children’s Director, I am responsible for...

    By Jerrod Baker Growing up, the thing I looked forward to the most during the summer was going to church camp. I grew up attending Muskogee District Camp at Camp Egan in Tahlequah, Okla. Whenever I was younger, I thought it would be cool to be able to continue attending church camp as an adult. I would have never imagined that I would be given that opportunity as the youth director at Acts 2 United Methodist Church, a church I did not even know existed. This summer, I was able to attend two camps with the students of Acts 2...

    By Melissa Nelms I grew up going to church camp every summer as a child and youth. Camp played a formative role in my walk to follow Jesus and in my call to ministry. It’s one of those experiences where you can’t help but see God around every turn – surrounded by creation, no cell signal, fewer distractions, encouraged by friends and leaders all seeking one thing – to grow closer to God. I’m grateful to be part of a church family who places such a high value on the camping experience for our children and youth and gives tim...

    Vacation Bible School. Crafts, cookies with the orange drink, songs you can still sing (Deep & Wide) and stories you can still fully animate (Zacchaeus was a Wee Little Man) all rush back when you hear those words. VBS is the event of the summer, and at Acts 2, we hope it’s the week your kids just can’t miss. Bible School dates back to the 1870s when a Methodist Episcopal Church in New York began a Summer Sunday School Institute open to the public regardless of denomination. Many of these were aimed at adults, but programmi...

    by Melissa Brake When our family first began attending Acts 2, I was so excited to learn that they had a Vacation Bible School program. As a child, I had so many wonderful memories of VBS and could not wait for our boys to get to make some for themselves. I also knew I wanted to sign up to help, for many reasons, but the best was to share the love of Jesus. Then the time came, opening day of Vacation Bible School! There were so many children, volunteers, new faces, familiar faces…people everywhere! The saying “the more the ...

    by Jerrod Baker I heard about Project Transformation from the Wesley Foundation at OSU when I was a sophomore in college. I was an active member at the Wesley Foundation and they informed us one Sunday that Charlie Ludden from Project Transformation was going to come by one Sunday to preach. I remember not being too excited because I did not know who he was. What I do remember getting excited about was the opportunity to eat free Hideaway pizza. After the service, I attended the meeting there at Hideaway and my life took a ...

    by Jorge Moreira My father used to say that simply being concerned about a situation or about someone doesn’t make a difference. You can either act or don’t. If you act, you will make a difference, especially for those that can’t do it on their own. These words have always stuck with me when confronted with life situations, and today I use them to guide my life. By nature, I am not a person who openly talks about my feelings or emotions; however, I am going to share with you some thoughts with the hope that I can inspire so...

    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...
