Bible Blast for children 4 years old through 4th grade

Bible Blast is based on Deuteronomy 6:4-9, which tells parents to impress God's Word on the hearts of their children. It is centered around families reading the Bible together daily. Parents read a story from the Picture Bible to their children each week and review the quizzing questions and answers in the Bible Blast manual. Then, the children meet together for a high-energy, motivational, music-filled Bible Blast program. Part of the time is spent quizzing the children on their reading for the week and listening to memory verses they have worked on. The remaining time is spent in praise and worship as well as a lesson about the week's Bible reading.

To enroll for Bible Blast please call 918.743.8897.

Men's Retreat – Mark Your Calendars & Sign up

Friday Afternoon & Evening, May 16 and Saturday Morning to mid-afternoon, May 17
Speaker:  Brad Clay of Final Descent Outdoors
Location: Spring Valley Ranch
Cost: $50

Brad grew up in a tiny town in western Oklahoma where hunting and fishing was a way of life. However, Brad didn't give his life to Christ until he was a sophomore in high school. The Lord called Brad into youth ministry and for the last 12 years Brad served in Oklahoma as a youth pastor. Brad used his love for the outdoors to minister to students as well as others. Brad founded Final Descent Outdoors as an outreach in his church. It grew from that into a national TV show that is in 40 million homes in North America. Brad and his wife April and two children Matthias and Ava have taken a step of faith and have decided to follow the Lord and pursue Final Descent Outdoors and outdoor ministry full time. Brad travels the country challenging men and others through the outdoors to follow Christ. Brad also authors bible studies and other material for outdoorsmen. Hear this message from Brad!
