A Landmark Year of Mission and Service in Tulsa

I am so proud of what we do in Community Ministries and through our Caring Center ministries at FBC in downtown Tulsa — and truly all around our city. This was the latest article that ran on Sunday. Between our two Caring Centers we saw nearly 50,000 client visits. Our other events and school partnerships were also highly successful. We have an amazing group of staff and volunteers and I am so blessed to be a part of this amazing mission and ministry.  I am also attaching some other images below with some neat stories underneath.

Our Tuesday Ladies' Bible Study also became more effective this year, and even found new ways to show love to our ladies like Esther on her birthday.

This is just a small picture of what it looks like to receive generous donations that immediately go out to our homeless community.
