Glad you found us!
Here you will find information concerning our church and its ministries. We hope you find your time spent here a blessing.
We are a congregation of about fifty people – a warm, welcoming and active family congregation nestled in the rolling hills and lakes just 30 minutes from Tulsa.
We have a wonderful traditional sanctuary with a beautiful Pipe Organ that stretches across the entire wall behind the pulpit. A few years ago we completed a fund raising centennial project that restored the outside of our majestic 100-year-old brick Church. The bell in the steeple rings each Sunday inviting our neighbors to our Services and if you happen to arrive when the Azaleas, that line the front of the church, are in bloom you will see the wonder and beauty of God’s hand at work.
On Sunday Mornings at 10am the members of our church share their wisdom on that weeks Sermon Topic in a lively Adult Bible study group. We also have a children's class. Our Sunday Service begins at 11am.
If you are considering relocating to our area, or live near by, drop in and introduce yourself we would be happy to see you!
Peace, Sandy Bach, Pastor

Questions to ponder this week:
1. After Lydia's conversion she offered hospitality to Paul. How do Christians offer hospitaltiy today?
2. Paul and his companions went in search of "a place of prayer." When have you found yourself in an unusual place of prayer? How did it feel? Would you do it again if you could? Why or why not?
Thank you for volunteering your help in leading worship. Worship is the heart of our congregation and therefore should be done to the very best of our ability. We provide this guideline as a tool to help you prepare so that worship may flow smoothly.
The liturgist script is carefully prepared each week and will be ready for you to download from the website (fpccleveland.com) by the Friday before worship.If you have difficulties with this, contact Steven Page at 918-358-5183.
1. There will always be a printed script at the church if you prefer to use that.
2. Read the script through thoroughly. Look for words that are difficult to pronounce.If you’re unable to pronounce any words click on this link: Bible Word Pronunciation.
When you get to the website:
1. Click on a letter to view Bible names and words
beginning with that letter.
2. Click on the Name you are looking for.
3. Click on the play button of the audio player.
Now you can breeze through those difficult Bible names.
3. Practice reading the script aloud a few times.This shows respect for the congregation that you’re leading.
4. Remember to remain after worship to count the cash and change in the offering plate.Please ask another member to assist you in this.
Thank you, again, for your leadership in worship.

Sunday's at 10am
The Lord's Supper is God's gracious gift of a sacrament to nourish our faith. It is a sign and seal of God's grace repeatedly given to us, as often as we celebrate it to communicate the benefits of Christ's death to us, by faith. When we participate in the Lord's Supper the reality of the salvation Christ brings becomes ours.
We recognize the Lord's Supper is for all Christians, and those who have faith in Jesus Christ are welcomed at this Table.
Communion is served on the first Sunday of the Month.
God comes to us in free and undeserved favor in the person of Jesus Christ who lived, died, and rose for us that we might belong to God and serve Christ in the world. Following Jesus, Presbyterians are engaged in the world and in seeking thoughtful solutions to the challenges of our time.
When you donate to the 2 cents a meal offering, collected the last Sunday of the month, you are enabling others to enjoy food we often take for granted. This simple act is an expression of thanks for what we have received.
