The Cedar Ridge Prayer Team invites you to participate in the 2017 National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 4. The focus of the National Day of Prayer is to encourage personal prayer and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families.
The theme for 2017 is For Your Great Name’s Sake! taken from the scripture in Daniel 9:19: “Lord, listen! Lord, forgive! Lord, hear and act! For your sake, my God…”
The Prayer Room at the BA Campus will be open from 5:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. on May 4. To sign up for half-hour time slots, please stop by the BA Campus Welcome Center or call the church office, 918-254-0621. A list of suggested topics to pray for will be posted in the prayer room.

The Marriage Builders Adult Bible Fellowship class is changing it’s name to “Nesters”. When the class began 15 years ago, members were newlyweds. The name change shows we’re growing and learning together as our children are in the nest.
The Nesters ABF class is focused on studying together to be more Christ-like people, spouses, and parents. This season of life can be challenging and we want to dig into the Word together to learn eternal truths and to become all God wants us to be. Everyone is welcome as we’re excited to learn from God and with each other.
This class will meet based on the general school year calendar. This will allow parents to observe school breaks with children and family.
The Cedar Ridge Prayer Team invites you to join them every Sunday morning and Wednesday evening to pray for our church and for other specific prayer needs. Please meet in the BA Campus Prayer Room located at the back of the Worship Center on the East side.
► Sundays at 8:00 a.m.
► Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m.

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.
