Love Tulsa Christmas is finally here and this year we have THREE ways you can get involved! You are encouraged to be part of all three, but we are asking you to select at least one way to join us. Please make all applicable selections below and turn them into the Love Tulsa team at the tree in the lobby.

Give Gifts - We have identified 25 students at Sequoyah Elementary that are in need of some extra love this Christmas season. In the lobby you will find a Christmas tree with ornaments noting the ages of these children. Pick an ornament and sponsor a child’s Christmas! Gifts are due back, unwrapped, by December 16th.

Give Time - Help us throw a Christmas party at Sequoyah Elementary. December 19th from 6-8 pm we will be hosting a party for Sequoyah families. There will be a holiday dinner, a place for parents to select gifts for their children, a craft area for children to make presents for their parents, family portraits, and more! It will take a ton of volunteers to make this night a success, so come join us!

Give Money and support a teacher at Wright Elementary. We are so grateful for our teachers in Tulsa! Every year we surprise teachers with a generous year end gift from City Church.  Simply go to cc.guide or text in a donation and type “Wright” after the amount and we’ll make sure a hard working teacher at Wright Elementary gets it as a Christmas gift this year.

Pastor matt - Advent week 2

December 9, 2018


MARK 13:32-37

“But concerning that day or that hour, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Be on guard, keep awake. For you do not know when the time will come. It is like a man going on a journey, when he leaves home and puts his servants in charge, each with his work, and commands the doorkeeper to stay awake. Therefore stay awake—for you do not know when the master of the house will come, in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or in the morning—lest he come suddenly and find you asleep. And what I say to you I say to all: Stay awake.”

In the life of a follower of Jesus, the waiting is not only inevitable, it is essential.

Active Waiting

Most of us consider waiting as something very passive, a hopeless state determined by events totally out of our hands. The bus is late? We cannot do anything about it, so we have to sit there and just wait. It is not difficult to understand the irritation people feel when somebody says, “Just wait.” Words like that push us into passivity.

But there is none of this passivity in Scripture. Those who are waiting are waiting very actively. They know that what they are waiting for is growing from the ground on which they are standing. Right here is a secret for us about waiting. If we wait in the conviction that a seed has been planted and that something has already begun, it changes the way we wait. Active waiting implies being fully present to the moment with the conviction that something is happening where we are and that we want to be present to it. A waiting person is someone who is present to the moment, believing that this moment is the moment. 

Finding My Way Home by Henri Nouwen

Luke 1:26-37

In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.” 29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.” 34 “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?” 35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. 36 Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month. 37 For no word from God will ever fail.”

Luke 1:38

38 “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.”

Luke 1:46-55

And Mary said:

“My soul glorifies the Lord
47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
48 for he has been mindful
    of the humble state of his servant.
From now on all generations will call me blessed,
49 for the Mighty One has done great things for me—
    holy is his name.
50 His mercy extends to those who fear him,
    from generation to generation.
51 He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
    he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
52 He has brought down rulers from their thrones
    but has lifted up the humble.
53 He has filled the hungry with good things
    but has sent the rich away empty.
54 He has helped his servant Israel,
    remembering to be merciful
55 to Abraham and his descendants forever,
    just as he promised our ancestors.”
