Greetings from Tulsa! It is our tremendous pleasure to announce our new location for worship and fellowship. As Pastor Joel put it, “God knows our needs, and if we persist in our prayers, and not ask amiss, He will meet our needs.” Thanks to the persistent efforts of our dear brother Shawn Moore, our paths have been directed to our new worship home.
Our new worship center is located at the northeast corner of 55th and Mingo, in the Commerce Plaza, unit 5459-C (the address is 5459-C S. Mingo). We have approximately 1,500 sq. ft. of space, which we hope to outgrow, Lord willing. A schedule for services will be finalized later, but for now we will be meeting for Sunday morning teaching at 9:45 AM, with worship service following at 10:30 AM. Our meetings at our new location have already been blessed with God’s presence, and we anxiously anticipate greater things to come.
Pastor Joel wrote to the saints in Oklahoma recently saying, “I have great expectation in our Lord’s promises, and we are right where we need to be at his time.
“In Proverbs He says, time and chance happened to all men, this is our chance and the right time. I praise Him for all He has done. You all are invited to come and fellowship with us in this new space. The doors are open to all; any pastor or minister who wishes to speak can come any time to share whatever the Lord has put on his heart.
“Jesus said, ‘Take my yoke upon you and learn of me.’ It is my desire to have this kind of worship – worshipping Him in spirit and in truth – where we can be called His friends, and where He will tell us all things. Pray for me that I can find the mind of God and be in His perfect will, I pray His will and not mine.”
This is the prayer of all of us in Oklahoma, to be standing right in the middle of God’s perfect will. We pray that God will use us to perform mighty works in this area, and thank Him for the blessings He has already bestowed upon us. We are enormously excited about the immediate future in Tulsa, and overflow with joy at the new opportunities He has given us. To God be the glory, great things He has done!
Once again, the saints in Oklahoma would like thank Brother Shawn Moore for his continued efforts, and his persistent work in our search for a new worship center. Shawn and Angie have opened their home to our meetings, and their hospitality and patience is appreciated beyond expression. They are a true blessing to all of us daily, and we thank God for bringing us together with their family.
