What to Expect

Each element in our worship service is grounded in biblical principles as found in the New Testament.

SINGING - The entire congregation joins in singing songs, a capella style . There is no band but simple , uplifting praise through singing . Since we find no evidence in the New Testament that the early church used mechanical instruments to accompany their singing, we do not use them in our worship . (Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16)

PRAYER - The congregation is led in prayer by men in the assembly. We pray, not only to praise and thank God, but also to ask for our needs and the needs of others . (1 Timothy 2:1-4).

PREACHING - The lessons and sermons are designed to teach God's word. We offer a period of Bible teaching and study.

THE LORDS SUPPER - Like the church of the New Testament times, we partake of the Lord's supper each first day of the week (Acts 20:7). The supper consists of unleavened bread and fruit of the vine as memorials of the body and blood of Jesus (1 Corinthians 11:20-34).

GIVING - We do not take up a collection every time we meet, but only the first day of the week (1 Corinthians 16:1-2). Should you attend our Sunday service when the collection is taken, you are not expected to give. This is the responsibility of our members, not our guests.

History of Colcord Church of Christ

A Gospel Meeting was held at Row, Oklahoma beginning October 8, 1911 and continuing through October 22. The preachers for the meeting were Brother Hickman, Brother Parker and Brother Murphy. On October 15, several from the community were obedient to the Gospel. The following were baptized in Clouds Creek on October 15, 1911: Thomas and Emma Linam, Loren Potter, Wyley and Cecil Linam, Lee and Annie Linam, James Linam, Albert Potter and George Potter. On October 22, 1911, several others were baptized into Christ. Those included: Florence Potter, Jeff Arms, Mrs. Pointer, Lowell Hickman, Jess and Kate Allen, Pearl Porter, Mollie Potter, Minnie Arms, Gusta Swicegood and Jim and Etta Murphy.

These members continued to meet at the Row Schoolhouse for many years. Most of their children and many grandchildren became disciples of Christ at Row. Some who preached at Row in these early years include: George Gleason, F.S. Hyso, A.H. Bryant, Elmer Barnett, Tom Enix and Rue Porter.

The members decided in 1946 that the time and the need was right for owning a building. James and Nettie Linam donated the land in Colcord, OK for the building. Through many generous donations of money and labor the building was completed in a short time and ready for use. In 1971 a new auditorium was built and the old building was used for classrooms. Then in 1982, new classrooms were built and the old building torn away to make parking space. A fellowship room was built and completed in 1987. Then in 1996, an addition was made to the auditorium and also the auditorium was completely remodeled. In 2011 a new auditorium and classroom space was built.  Several generations of members have participated in donating labor and money for the facilities used by the church.

Those who have served as elders for the congregation include: Houston Allen, Jim Linam, Quince Porter, Claude Wofford, Alva Linam, Norman Linam, and Rex Allen. The present elders are David Allen,  Dennis Woodruff and Ricky Reed. Larry Ellis has been preaching for the congregation since August of 1972.

The church averages approximately 140 in attendance each Sunday morning. The church is actively involved in evangelism locally as well as abroad. The church supports efforts in preaching the gospel to the United States, Latin America, Philippines, India, and Russia. The mission of the church today is the same as that of those who were added by the Lord in 1911: To share the message of Christ and to show the love of Christ in word and deed.
