Food for Students During the Summer Months

We are so excited to share the following news with the communities of Checotah, Oktaha, Midway(Council Hill) and Porum.

Beginning June 4th, our congregation will be disturbing non-perishable food items to any family who has children in pre-school through High School. We are please to be working with the USDA to ensure that the children of these school systems will have something to eat during the summer months.

Distribution will be on the following days and times: Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9am to Noon then on Wednesday evening from 6pm to 7pm.

Distribution will begin on Tuesday, June 4th and continue until August 1st. A small amount of paperwork will need to be filled out plus a photo identification will be needed from anyone who comes to receive food.

If you have any questions, you can contact the church at 918-473-5714 or cfumc@windstream.net

You can register your child(ren) on the 21st or you can go to the top of this page, click on the tab which says "Vacation Bible School Registration."

Our theme is "Camp Firelight " where we will learn to trust God no matter what life brings, to know that God is always with them and to feel confident in sharing the Good News of God's love through Jesus Christ. You will be able to register your student(s) right here online.  That registration link will be put up at a later date..  We are hoping to see as many of you as possible.
