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.
Love Tulsa Sunday
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.
