Beloved Siblings in Christ,
We did it - we reopened! It was thrilling to see the pews full and the sound of so many voices lifted in prayer together again. With your help, our first services since March of 2020 went off without a hitch. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we move into "normal" again.
We are pleased to announce that, with prayerful consideration, the guidance of the CDC, and the extremely low virus rate in Tulsa county, we have made the decision to end our mask requirement. Beginning June 1st, we will remove all mandatory covid precautions. While we still recommend masks, especially for those who are unvaccinated, we will no longer require them. Food and drink will be allowed inside once again, and we will return to the common cup for communion. We realize not everyone will be ready to share a cup, so please feel free to choose intinction (dipping the wafer in the wine), or simply cross your arms across your chest as the chalice comes to you. LEARN MORE.
Don't forget that this Sunday, May 30th, is Trinity Sunday. We are excited to return to our tradition of hosting a parish picnic! This year will look slightly different in an effort to accommodate plenty of people with more distance. Please remember to bring a chair to help us in this endeavor. There will not be tables provided so please plan accordingly.
As our community prepares for the centennial of the deadliest race massacre in our nation's history, we hope you will join us for Unity Faith day on Sunday (see below), and the dedication of the prayer wall at Vernon AME church (see below) on Monday.
Let us commit to supporting the African American community, and work towards a more complete understanding of the history of the race massacre and the last effects it has had for generations.
