The Ministry Center
The Ministry Center provides quality clothing, staple food items, vouchers for prescription medication, shower facilities, a bi-monthly medical clinic, Christian witness, guidance and prayer. An appointment is required for each client. No one is assisted until they have completed an intake interview with a volunteer staff member who evaluates their circumstances and shares with them the love of Jesus.
How can you help? Volunteers are needed to conduct intake interviews to determine each client family’s needs; prepare food sacks for clients; work with clients in the clothing room; participate in special projects such as building maintenance and painting, yard work or food drives.
Churches are needed to collect food on a regular basis for distribution; incorporate this ministry as a regular part of their church budget; become part of the ministry team.

This is where South Tulsa comes into the picture – we want to help make Christmas special for the children of these women. You may choose to shop for one child or a family (we are only shopping for the children). You will be provided a list that has the name, age, clothing sizes and toy requests. It has been suggested that each child receive at least one set of clothing, two if possible, maybe a pair of shoes or a coat and a toy. Shopping is completed the first week of December. If you would like to shop for a child, you can sign up in most adult Bible Study classes or there are sign-up sheets available at the Atrium and Commons Welcome Centers. Wrapped gifts need to be turned in by December 4. If you have questions – please contact Connie Faurot in the church office.
With over 200 children being cared for by these recovering women, transportation is key. The Women in Recovery ministry will accept any vehicle in any shape. You will receive contribution credit if you donate a vehicle. Contact Vernon Long at 918-622-1040 for more information.
Through our partnership with the North Tulsa Alliance we participate in two opportunities to minister to families in North Tulsa. In the weeks leading up to the beginning of school, our church collects school supplies to be distributed to underprivileged children. Then, between Thanksgiving and Christmas we collect donations to purchase turkeys for hundreds of families.
We currently minister at two locations: David L. Moss Criminal Justice Center in Tulsa and Mabel Basset in McCloud. The Jail Ministry team leads large Bible studies, shares the Gospel, visits with inmates or lead small group Bible studies each week.

Hannah's Hope is inspired by Hannah's longing and prayers for a child in 1 Samuel. The name Hannah's Hope reminds us of the hope we have through Christ even after the loss of a baby. Many times a neonatal loss is something that is suffered privately. We recognize that even in our secret hurts, there is power in allowing others to walk alongside us as encouragers and fellow sojourners. By placing Hope Boxes in the hands of grieving families, Hannah's Hope affirms that the life of each baby is worthy of remembrance and encourages families to work through their grief in a healthy way. Our Missions Committee has endorsed this local ministry and is encouraging our church family and friends to send these hope boxes to friends who have suffered this heart breaking loss.
