The Christians on Campus is a club that meets frequently at OCCC to allow students to learn more about Christianity. It has been on OCCC’s campus for at least three years, said Nehemiah Kennedy, pre-engineering major and club member.

Kennedy said the club focuses on studying Christian beliefs during meetings.

“We really just try to get into the Bible a lot and we just search the scripture to find a lot of the truth,” Kennedy said.

Kennedy said the club meets twice a week to incorporate communication and community within the club.

He said they meet at noon on Mondays in room 1X5 in the Main Building and at 12:30 p.m. on Tuesdays in room 1C3 in the Main Building.

Club staff member Deborah Miller said one objective of the club is to study God’s teachings.

“Our main focus, every time we get together, is to [focus] on our love of God and Christ,” Miller said.

She said along with their meetings twice a week, the club will sometimes have additional meetings to accommodate schedules and add more opportunities to discuss the Bible.

“Sometimes we meet in the evenings at [members’] homes near campus,” she said.

Miller said along with Bible studies, the club incorporates different kinds of activities as well.

“We have a ‘truth meeting’ Monday night in a home near campus and then on Thursday nights we have another college meeting down in Norman,” she said.

The club strives to go above and beyond just weekly club meetings or discussions, Miller said.

“Throughout the semester, we’ll have different weekend outings for larger regional conferences, or we’ll join the Christians on Campus clubs from Texas [and] Arkansas,” she said.

“[Christians on Campus is] a national and international club.”

Students who are interested in joining the Christians on Campus club can experience a club meet up in Norman to celebrate Christianity by barbecuing.

“We have our last outing of the semester [on] May 3, [which] we call the ‘celebration meeting’ and we get together with Christians on Campus clubs from Norman and Edmond, from the University of Oklahoma and the University of Central Oklahoma, and we’re going to have a barbecue and a bonfire at Camp Rock Creek in Norman,” Miller said.

To join, attend the club’s next meeting at noon on Monday, May 5, in room 1X5, or Tuesday, May 6, in room 1C3.
