“Armor of God” by Priscilla Shirer – All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you’re tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.
We’re going to take our time with this study. There will be no homework – we’ll do everything together in class. Please purchase your book prior to August 3. The book costs approximately $15 and is available at Lifeway, Mardel, and Amazon.
Every Sunday at the Broken Arrow Campus, classes are available for adults of all ages to study God’s Word on their own level. Groups are available at both the 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. hours. For more information concerning any of the ABF groups listed below, please contact Bryan Champ or call the church office, 918-254-0621.

What is a Ridge Group?
Ridge Groups are small groups (typically 10—12 people) designed to encourage close relationships and connection with others on a deeper level through Bible study, service together, personal encouragement and support for each other through life’s storms.
Why are small groups important?
God wired us for relationships. We grow spiritually with other people in ways that we will never grow on our own. Christian maturity best takes place in the context of relationships and true life-sharing can only happen in a smaller circle of community.
When do Ridge Groups meet?
Groups meet several times a month on various days of the week and in various locations throughout the community. Each group chooses their own meeting day, time and location. We will assist you in finding a group that is meeting at a time and location that is best for you.
What about childcare?
We encourage each group to determine what best meets the needs of their group. Each Ridge Group handles their own childcare.

Oklahoma Teen Challenge
On January 1, 2012 there were 8308 children who, through no fault of their own, were in the custody of the Oklahoma Department of Human Services (OKDHS). The families of these children are not able to care for them due to incarceration, extreme poverty, physical abuse, drug abuse, neglect or abandonment. The 111 Project is a campaign to recruit foster families from Oklahoma churches to meet this need. The purpose is to leave no Oklahoma child without a family. Contact the church office for more information about Foster Care applications and other ways that you can be involved.
