The Pregnancy Resource Center of Owasso is a nonprofit Christian organization that is working to save lives through helping young mothers. If you are looking to do something on a more personal level, go online to prcowasso.org or call Brenda Raleigh at 918-272-6888 to find out about volunteer opportunities. Each January we celebrate Sanctity of Life Sunday with a Baby Bottle fundraiser where we try to fill as many baby bottles as we can to benefit PRCO.
Thank you Central for your continued support of our Benevolence Ministry. Through your generous gifts we are able to help local families with their utilities, their rent or a combination as well as providing nonperishable food items for those in need. Partnering with the Ministerial Alliance of Owasso, Mission:Owasso and Owasso Community Resources we help hundreds of families keep their utilities on and from being evicted from their homes. Please consider how you can be a part of this ministry through service or giving.
Mission:Owasso – we are pleased to partner with First Baptist of Owasso for this wonderful community outreach that provides emergency utility assistance and assists with other material needs such as furniture and clothing. (Mission:Owasso 918-516-6638)
We support these special offerings (Annie Armstrong: Easter Offering for North American Missions, Edna McMillian: Oklahoma Missions, Lottie Moon: International Missions) throughout the year that help support missionaries. Thank you Central for your generous giving toward supporting our missionaries around the world. 100% of these offering will go directly to support a missionary family. Of course you do not have to wait until a designated month to support one of these offerings. Just designate it on your envelope and the money will be sent monthly to support our missionaries worldwide.
We also partner with the “Hospitality House of Tulsa”, a Christian faith-based organization that desires to serve all families in need during a medical crisis regardless of religious preference or background. We believe that true Biblical hospitality, Hakhnasat-orhim in the Hebrew, and PhiloXenia in the Greek, is practiced by God’s people toward everyone as they pass through a community in need of lodging and food. Our vision is to show the world Christian Love through Boundless Hospitality.
Central is serious about reaching the community of Owasso with the gospel message. Many times that means more than inviting people to our church. We have created Missional Response Teams (MRT) with individuals that have different missional values based on Ephesians 4:11-12. How has God wired you missionally? Go to our home page and click on the APEPT icon and take the survey. It will generate a report that will help you decide how you can join an existing MRT or start a new one. For more information contact Matt Flindt in the church office.
Central has created a Missional Response Team to reach the Skaters in Owasso. This team is in the process of strategically planning a venue so we can build relationships with the skaters resulting in the creation of new believers. Then they will need to be discipled and trained to reach more skaters. How can you get involved? Take the APEPT survey located on our website and then attend a one session training on how to read your report. From there we will get you in contact with the SK8 Church MRT.
Mission: New England
– if you would like to learn more about this missions opportunity to support and reach out to our neighbors in the New England area, contact Matt Flindt (firstname.lastname@example.org) .
Central is in the early process of creating a Missional Response Team to partner with several MR Teams in the state of Rhode Island, Eastern Connecticut and Maine. This area is the 2nd most densely populated in the USA and only 2% evangelized. Believers in this area are desperate for assistance from other believers in sharing the gospel message. We had our first informational meeting on July 27. We have begun to establish Prayer Teams, Missional Response teams both locally and ones ready to travel to New England. Our initial goal is to pray over the entire process and then begin working with their MR teams in creating venues for relationship building resulting in the creation of missional congregations. How can you get involved? Take the APEPT survey located on our website and then contact Matt Flindt in the church office. We will put you on our distribution list that will keep you informed on all the activities involving Impact New England. To see more go to www.impactnewengland.net.
How do you get involved in Missions at Central? The moment you join you already are involved.
Every member at Central partners with millions of other believers all around the world who also call themselves Southern Baptists.
Through our tithes and offerings, prayers, and participation, we also partner with every New Testament church that believes in the Bible and the Great Commission.
There are many opportunities to get involved with the American or World mission teams at Central throughout the year. Whether you join us to volunteer at the Tulsa Hospitality House or board a plane to go overseas with one of our missions teams to share Christ.
