I keep coming back to this. A vibrant city, booming with life and liberty…and it strikes. Winds swirling in every direction, sending cars through buildings and turning fence posts into brick-piercing javelins. A city demolished by hell itself with nowhere to run except a bathtub, a safe room, or a basement. I’ve not had the chance to contribute time into helping my fellow Oklahomans down the turnpike, but I’ve watched with pride some old friends take care of their own.

I’d like to introduce you to Everyday Church. Their vision in a simple statement is to reach the city to reach the world, one day at a time. The church has done that in a huge way over the past month. They have volunteered their time to help those that have lost so much. The cool thing? If I have my info correct, they hadn’t had their official first service yet.

John Hickman, the lead pastor has had a vision to reach the OKC metro area for a long while now. He and newly acquired worship leader Jeff Osborn were in the planning and preparation stage, scheduling a launch in the next year. When the twister ripped through the metro, they knew what they had to do. It wasn’t to sit around and talk about the disaster. It was to be the body of Christ in the disaster providing relief.

Not only did they contribute their time and effort to assist in the cleanup and support of the city, they also led their 1st service…in the Wal-Mart parking lot. They put to action what the mission statement states.

They’ve done a lot of work thus far, and as you know a lot of work is yet to be done. This church is in the middle of it. If you are looking for a place to send your funds to do more for Moore, consider contributing to this crew. www.everydayokc.com
