Love Tulsa

Love Tulsa Sunday – May 1st, 2022

Twice a year, we cancel our church services to go and be the church in our city. It’s one of our favorite times of the year, as we gather in the morning to get in our teams, eat a quick breakfast, then disperse for a morning of service outreach.

2022 Project List

River Parks Clean Up
We will be cleaning up trash along the east riverbank of the arkansas river between 11th and 31st street. If we happen to see any houseless Tulsans living in the area, we will do our best to provide them with resources, food, and offer to clean up their encampents of litter and debris. The riverbank is one of the most important parts of our rivers ecosystem and it is very neglected.

Hope Valley Houseless Neighbor Outreach
We’re serving a hot lunch and care packages to our unhoused neighbors in the Hope Valley (61st and Peoria) area. We’ll meet at the City Church parking lot and make handwritten cards and assemble care packages with essential items (toiletries, bandages, socks, bibles, etc). Then we’ll carpool to the Hope Valley, set up some tables with lunch options, and serve meals while we talk, pray, and make connections with folks.

Jenks East Elementary Outdoor Beautification
General outdoor work at this South Tulsa Title I school. We will be planting flowers, cleaning up trash, trimming hedges, power washing, and helping clean up/create a courtyard that houses a turtle habitat.

We will clean up trash, power wash brick walk way and trim small trees in a courtyard that is home to two LARGE bunnies. Creating garden beds that can be kept free of bunnies and used to grow plants by students in the after school program.

North Tulsa Mowing Extravaganza
We will be doing some surprise neighborhood beautification through mowing and light tree trimming. The more lawnmowers we can get together, the better!

Hope Valley is the neighborhood in which our new building is located; we want to throw a summer kick off ‘block party’ in our parking lot! Fun for all ages, with games, food, inflatables, and more for the whole family.

Sow Into Love Tulsa

This Summer in 2020, City Church set aside $10,000 to pour into our local communities and great city of Tulsa. We believe in helping our neighbors practically, loving them well and preaching the Gospel of Jesus all go hand-in-hand. Your generosity helps to make all this possible, thank you for sowing into the Kingdom of God!

What is Love Tulsa?

Love Tulsa is a movement of Christ-followers who are passionate about taking their walk with Christ outside the walls of the church. It’s about taking the love of Christ to the schools, businesses, neighborhoods, and cultural centers of our city. We believe this opens the door for real, spiritual transformation to occur. Throughout the year, this is carried out through our Micro-Churches who come around a specific mission, project or community.
