MOORE — The Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma (BGCO) announced its “ReConnect Sunday School” initiative at the 106th annual meeting from Nov. 12-13 at Moore First Baptist Church.

The “ReConnect Sunday School” initiative calls on Oklahoma Baptist churches to revitalize adult and children’s educational Sunday schools as a means of evangelism. Also, a preview of a 2013 service evangelism initiative called “Serve Oklahoma” was given that will act as a catalyst for a statewide initiative to mobilize Oklahoma Baptists to get outside the walls of the church building to transform their community for Christ.

“The annual meeting is designed to bring together Baptists for worship and projects centered on the common mission to serve others and reach people for Christ,” Dr. Anthony Jordan, BGCO executive director-treasurer, said. “The 2013 initiatives will be the avenue through which we’ll accomplish these goals.”
