(Anadarko) We Bring Many Gifts to the Table
Last weekend Disciples gathered at Oakridge Camp in Anadarko for play, worship, and study. Rev. Jenny Wynn encouraged youth and adults to reflect on the unique gifts each one brings to the table that is our expression of faith, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), and how we can be "community" for friends and strangers beyond the walls of our congregations. Twenty-two (22) congregations sent groups to Qahal/Koinonia and there was a peak attendance of 143. A photo link will be shared soon.
A BIG THANK YOU to the adults that gave their time this weekend as sponsors. Thank you to our keynoter, Rev. Jenny Wynn (Southern Hills CC) and to our music guys, Cole Davis and Brad Blanke (FCC Midwest City).
