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!

    This weeks Sermon Scripture:

    Romans 8:26-39  The Message (MSG)

    26-28 Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.

    29-30 God knew what he was doing from the very beginning. He decided from the outset to shape the lives of those who love him along the same lines as the life of his Son. The Son stands first in the line of humanity he restored. We see the original and intended shape of our lives there in him. After God made that decision of what his children should be like, he followed it up by calling people by name. After he called them by name, he set them on a solid basis with himself. And then, after getting them established, he stayed with them to the end, gloriously completing what he had begun.

    31-39 So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture:

    They kill us in cold blood because they hate you.
    We’re sitting ducks; they pick us off one by one.

    None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.

    The Message (MSG)

    Questions to Ponder:
     
    1.  Who do you know who is depending on the Spirit for prayer with wordless sighs and aching groans?  Pray for them right now. 
     
    2.  What tries to get between you and God?  This may take some time to discern.  Take your time.  Allow God to speak to you.  Then ask for help in removing this barrier.
     
    Peace,
    Sandy

     

  • Liturgist Guidelines

    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.   We suggest you and a member from the other congregation count the offering in a private place.  The Computer Room in the Fellowship Hall would be a secure room to do the counting. After the counting leave the offering in the Computer Room and lock the door.  The offering will be pick up later by the treasurer.

    Thank you, again, for your leadership in worship.

    First Presbyterian Church,  Session  2016

  • Presbyterian Church USA

    Basics of Our Faith

    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.

    Christian Living

    Presbyterians affirm that God comes to us with grace and love in the person of Jesus Christ, who lived, died, and rose for us so that we might have eternal and abundant life in him. As Christ’s disciples, called to ministry in his name, we seek to continue his mission of teaching the truth, feeding the hungry, healing the broken, and welcoming strangers. God sends the Holy Spirit to dwell within us, giving us the energy, intelligence, imagination, and love to be Christ’s faithful disciples in the world.

  • United Methodist Church

    Basics of Our Faith

    As United Methodists, we have an obligation to bear a faithful Christian witness to Jesus Christ, the living reality at the center of the Church’s life and witness. To fulfill this obligation, we reflect critically on our biblical and theological inheritance, striving to express faithfully the witness we make in our own time.

    Christian Living

    The foundation of Christian living is faith in Christ. Faith is the central loyalty that gives purpose and direction to our lives. Christian faith is grounding our lives in the living God as revealed especially in Jesus the Christ.

    Sunday's at 10am

  • Communion

    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.

  • Two Cents A Meal Offering

    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.
