Bible Correspondence Courses
The University church offers the John M. Hurt eight-lesson Bible Correspondence Course to those in our community who wish to study God’s Word. The course is advertised by personal hand-out cards and in various area publications. Over the past several years, dozens have expressed an interest in studying the scriptures by this course. In a new twist this year, members of University are encouraged to complete the course themselves. This will allow a better understanding of how this course benefits others. If you are interested in completing the course and then using this tool to reach others, let me know.
Barksdale AFB Outreach Ministry:
This is an exciting new evangelistic outreach to the men and women serving our country at Barksdale Air Force Base with the goal of connecting spiritually and socially with first-time airmen and their families.
Brother’s Keepers is a group that calls to check on our family members who have been absent from services more than three weeks. Our goal is to not let anyone “slip through a crack” and disappear from the family of God, so these phone calls are our way to follow up on those who have been missing in hopes of discovering how we can better assist, serve, or encourage them.
Fall Food Round-Up:
Each Thanksgiving the entire congregation joins together to show God’s Love by reaching out to the community. University provides a week of groceries and what families would need for a Thanksgiving meal. This outreach is wonderful for families with children. University’s hope is that this activity will help plant the seed of community outreach and missions to families involved.
Partnering with Caddo Council on Aging, our Meals on Wheels team delivers lunches Monday-Thursday (except on holidays) to eight sweet seniors enrolled in this community program. We run the same route everyday which allows us to establish a relationship with each senior. Our route is just minutes from the church in the Cedar Grove neighborhood and takes less than an hour to complete. Our team members deliver meals in pairs about 10am each day. But just as important as the meal, our team delivers a warm smile, a friendly and encouraging word, and a loving hug or handshake to each senior. It is a very rewarding ministry!
