Love Tulsa Sunday

Love Tulsa Sunday
October 10th, 2021

Twice a year we cancel Sunday services to strategically BE THE GOSPEL all over our city. In the midst of uncertain times, this will be a an amazing weekend to serve our neighbors and show them the hope and love of Jesus Christ.

Following the crisis in Afghanistan, we are partnering with Catholic Charities who are helping resettle hundreds of Afghan refugees in the city of Tulsa. Bring one or more of the following items to help us love and welcome our new neighbors:
  • 4-pack of toilet paper (in need of 379 packs)
  • Bed sheet sets (in need of 391 twin, 42 full, 15 queen)
We will have boxes for these donations the morning of Love Tulsa.

2021 Project List

We are honored to be able to go serve a second time at this home, being the hands and feet of Jesus to a recently widowed woman in her time of need. On this project, we will be installing a fence in her backyard and doing some light home improvement projects needed on the house itself.

During this project, you’ll have the opportunity encourage and show the love of Christ of dozens of local healthcare professionals as they continue to serve their communities. 

Letters of Encouragement – Principals
Principals are the glue that keep our schools running smoothly, especially through the uncertain times in which we find ourselves currently. Come celebrate these unsung local heros by writing them letters of appreciation and encouragement, showing them that we are so thankful for their leadership and committment to our community. 

Care Packages for Refugee Families
Tulsa is getting ready to welcome hundreds of recently displaced Afghan refugees. As they flee their homes, we have the opportunity to be the Gospel and welcome them to ours. On this project, you’ll be able to create “Welcome” signs for our new neighbors, assemble goodie bags for volunteers and staff who are directly working with the refugees, as well as, deliver hundreds of essential supplies to help make our new neighbors feel welcomed.  

Sequoyah Teacher Appreciation
Our Tulsa teachers have been so flexible, caring, and selfless through the uncertainty of the pandemic, staying focused on our students and giving of themselves day after day. During this project, you will be working hard to set up a surprise for the teachers through decorated doors, notes of encouragement, positive sidewalk chalk messages, and more!

Sequoyah Family Resource Baskets
Sequoyah Elementary is constantly welcoming in students from out of state and even overseas who’s families are in dire need of basic essentials to get them started in their new lives. On this project, you will be planning and assembling welcome baskets consisting of supplies and resources such as shampoo, conditioner, toothbrushes, bus schedules, resources lists and more to help ease the transition. 

North Tulsa House Project
Continuing the work done during the last Love Tulsa Sunday, join our team in serving families in North Tulsa through various house projects.

Who doesn’t love a good block party? On this project we’ll be inviting the Red Fork neighborhood to come hang out in the local park and enjoy some music, bouncy houses, a cookout, and tons of games for the kids!

Pray Tulsa Walk
Walk the city of Tulsa as we join in prayer for the the Hope of Jesus Christ to saturate the hearts of those in our city.

Talk Notes

STREAMS IN THE DESERT
Leaving the Desert of Digital Babylon

 

Psalm 137 (Passion Translation)

Along the banks of Babylon’s rivers

we sat as exiles, mourning our captivity,

and wept with great love for Zion.

2  Our music and mirth were no longer heard, only sadness.

We hung up our harps on the willow trees.

3  Our captors tormented us, saying, “Make music for us and

sing one of your happy Zion-songs!”

4  But how could we sing the song of the Lord

in this foreign wilderness?

5  May my hands never make music again

if I ever forget you, O Jerusalem.

6  May I never be able to sing again if I fail to honor Jerusalem supremely!

7  And Lord, may you never forget

what the sons of Edom did to us, saying,

“Let’s raze the city of Jerusalem and burn it to the ground!”

Listen, O Babylon, you evil destroyer!

The one who destroys you will be rewarded above all others.

You will be repaid for what you’ve done to us.

Great honor will come to those who destroy you and your future,

by smashing your infants against the rubble of your own destruction.

 

Matthew 5:27

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ 28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.

 

Psalm 34 (ESV)

17 When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears

and delivers them out of all their troubles.

18 The Lord is near to the brokenhearted

and saves the crushed in spirit.

Give me vision to see things like You do
God, I look to You, You’re where my help comes from
Give me wisdom, You know just what to do

God, I look to You, and I won’t be overwhelmed
Give me vision to see things like You do
God, I look to You, and You’re where my help comes from
Give me wisdom, You know just what to do

And I will love You, Lord my strength
And I will love You, Lord my shield
And I will love You, Lord, my rock
Forever all my days, I will love You, God
