Coweta Campus Launch Video

This is video we showed last week updating our church on our Coweta Campus Launch. Thanks Clay Allen for the great pics and Kelly Naumann for the great video.

Coweta Campus Billboard

Did you see the new billboard announcing our Cedar Ridge Coweta Campus? It’s located on highway 51 just east of Oneta Rd., viewable as you are headed toward Coweta. Pray that it will resonate with someone as they drive past and move them to connect with us.

Easter Card to Coweta Residents

I love the card that went out this week announcing Easter services at our Coweta Campus. It is the core message of Christianity – that if Jesus can conquer the grave, then he can conquer anything that is going on in your life. The message of Easter is one of hope. Jesus bring hope! I’m praying that our Coweta Campus brings hope to the community.

Except from my weekly Email

Don’t forget about our Good Friday Communion service tomorrow night, April 6th, 6:30 pm at our Broken Arrow campus. This reflective service will last about 45 minutes. It will include some singing, an explanation of the last supper of Jesus in the upper room, followed by taking communion together.

This past Sunday we focused on the crucifixion of Jesus. It was a pivotal moment in this Jesus Movement of which we are a part. Without the cross, there is no forgiveness of sin. Without the cross, there is no salvation. Without the cross there is no hope in the resurrection. It was the greatest expression of love the world has ever seen. Jesus left the glory and splendor of heaven. He came and lived on this earth with us so that he could ultimately die on the cross for us. Jesus loves you so much that he gave everything just to be with you. Don’t miss the heart message of the Jesus Movement in all the religious noise and church clamor that tends to confuse. It’s simple: For God so loved the world.

If you missed Sunday, you can always stay up with our series by watching the message here. If you’re interested in some follow up reminders throughout the week of Sunday’s message, follow me on twitter @gregapittman. This weekend we will continue The Jesus Movement series with The Resurrection. This Sunday is Easter Sunday. Did you know 8 out of 10 friends would join you at church for Easter if you asked? Don’t let the two scare you from world change.

Let me share Coweta Campus Minister, Ryan Fankhauser’s report of last Sunday at Coweta:

What an exciting launch service at the Coweta Campus! All of you helped make Sunday special to hundreds of people. Thank you so much for your willingness to serve these past few weeks and your commitment to the future. I’ve had a number of conversations with people who have said they’ll be back next week. Overall, we had 309 in attendance. 73 kids and adults in KidsZone and 236 crammed in like sardines in the worship center!

It was an exciting Opening Day! Because of such a great response, we will be having two services on Easter at Coweta at 9:00 and 10:30am. Thank you Ryan and all of our Coweta Launch Team for representing the entire Cedar Ridge family so well.

Look forward to seeing you Easter Sunday at one of our campuses.

Coweta Campus Launch Report

I had a great time at our Launch Party last night and at our staff meeting this morning hearing stories from our opening service at our Coweta campus. We were thrilled to have over 300 people in attendance. Our volunteers cared for over 60 children. We ran out of seating and had to put in additional chairs in the worship center. We ran out of communion supplies and I’m not positive but some may have received small bits of snickerdoodle cookie instead of unleavened bread. Because of such a great response, we will be holding two services on Easter Sunday, April 8th at 9:00am and 10:30am. Thank you Ryan, David and Vicky for your leadership. It was a great day!

We’re in the People Business

Coweta residents are already receiving our postcard for this week (the fourth in a series) announcing the launch of our Coweta Campus this Sunday, April 1st. This card communicates a core value for Cedar Ridge and that is people matter to God and because of that they matter to us. That’s why we’re opening our Coweta campus – because we care about people, their families, their lives and their eternal destinies.

We’re in the Coaching Business

Our latest postcard is going out today to area residents announcing our Coweta Campus launch on April 1st. We’re starting to see more website hits and phone calls in response. I love this card because it communicates one of our core values of believing God’s Word to be both relevant and powerful.

Coweta Ribbon Cutting

The Coweta Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting ceremony at our Cedar Ridge Coweta Campus today. Ryan Fankhauser performed the scissor duties (they were pointed scissors, but fortunately no injuries). Watch for upcoming article in the Coweta American.

Coweta Campus Postcard #2

Our second mailing went out this week advertising the opening of our Coweta Campus on April 1st. We are working like crazy to get the facility ready and have all of our teams in place. If you know someone in Coweta, ask them if they received our card and invite them to our Cedar Ridge Coweta Campus.

Coweta Campus Postcard 1


Check out postcard #1 that is in the mail this week promoting the April 1st launch of our Coweta Campus. This is the first of five cards going to about 6,500 households in about a 4 mile radius of the church. What do you think? Let me know if you get one in the mail.
