• Churches work to renovate old Claremore gas station for college students

    By: Paris Holmes


    CLAREMORE, Okla. - Two churches are working together to convert an old Claremore gas station into a place where college students can come together.

    The building has sat empty on the corner of SH-88 and Blue Starr Drive for several years and will soon be called the AMP Station. It’s named after a Christian student ministry on the campus of Rogers State University.

    Group leaders want to have couches, coffee machines, Wi-Fi and free laundry machines in the building for students to use. The project is a partnership between Claremore Assembly of God and First United Methodist Church.

    The goal is to give faith-based students a place to develop their own relationship with God.

    Organizers are raising money to complete the project and are also accepting donations of useful items, including sound equipment, game tables or anything else that would be good for the facility. Contact Jeff Losornio at 918-633-7372.
