September 2018 - August 2019

During this reporting period there were 66 salvations, 5 baptisms, and 14 rededications.

This year we conducted 15 Adventure clubs (Vacation Bible Schools) this spring break and summer.

The average attendance of our house churches was 127 weekly.

We distributed food to 7,849 households during this reporting period. This represents 9,728 adults and 11,490 children. Each person in the family received approximately 21 meals each, so the total number of meals provided was approximately 444,612.

We were able to help 411 families with utility assistance and 61 families with rent assistance during this reporting period. Additionally, we helped 60 families with non-narcotic prescription medications, 8 families with furniture, and 179 families with gasoline vouchers in order to help them get to a doctor’s appointment or job interview.

We were able to provide 400 Thanksgiving baskets to families this year. Each family received a turkey or chicken, and received enough stuffing, vegetables, bread, and other fixings to provide a nice meal for each member of the family. Thank you to all the churches, businesses, and individuals who gave to make this possible. A special thanks to the Bernstein Law Office that once again partnered with the mission giving out turkeys to the community.

We provided Christmas gifts for 460 children as well. We appreciate Janet Hess and the members of Wildwood Community Church who helped organize, shop, store, and distribute the gifts to all of these children. Because of their help and the generosity of many other churches, businesses, and individuals this was made possible.

Our Transitional Housing ministry began back in June of 2014 when the mission was given use of a large house in South Norman. Our first 4-plex then opened on February 5, 2015. Since opening the Transitional Housing Program, we have ministered to a total of 34 families representing 40 adults and 102 children. We continue to plan to build a new mission center and 4 more 4-plexes for a total of 20 homes for homeless families.

Mission Norman has broken ground on our new mission center. This will be a 18,400 sq. ft. building that will house our new food pantry, worship center, offices, meeting space, future dental and medical clinic as well as all the ministries of the mission. Thank you to B & H Construction for their continued generosity and support of Mission Norman. I would also like to thank everyone who supports the mission financially or by leading a Bible Study, volunteering at the mission center or who helps the mission in any way. Thank you all so much!

The purpose of Mission Norman remains the same throughout all these ministries – to make disciples of Jesus Christ among the unchurched. If you would like to volunteer for Mission Norman, lead a Bible Study, give financially, or share Christ with those in need, please contact Dave or Sandy at the mission at 2525 E. Lindsey St., Norman, OK 73071 or call us at the mission at 405-321-8880.

Thank you and God Bless You.
