EDMOND, Okla. – The well-known St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in Oklahoma City is expanding their ministry to Edmond.

According to Erica Bollinger, a representative from St. Luke’s, statistics show that 80 percent of Edmond residents do not have a church home.

Senior Pastor Bob Long describes the worship service as one with traditional elements combined with multi-media and the inspirational music.

Pastor Long talked about the Edmond campus saying, “there’s something about starting something fresh and new, building new relationships and friendships.  At the same time this is going to be a church start where we already have our core value of sharing God’s love and bringing hope to the world.  We are committed to sharing a message of hope and serving within the Edmond community.”

Along with weekly worship, the Edmond campus will have a nursery, children’s Sunday school, youth ministry, as well as community groups for everyone.

The worship service at the Edmond location will begin at Sequoyah Middle school on March 30, at 11 a.m.

St. Luke’s is reviewing land in North Edmond and stated they have plans to build a permanent campus within two years.
