An update from First Church Tulsa

First Church Tulsa creates community through
digital and broadcast offerings

First Presbyterian Church of Tulsa is now offering daily digital communications including services, messages and programs for adults, youth and children while the building is closed due to the shelter-in-place initiative as recommended by the city of Tulsa.

The Church closed the building to the public on March 17 after city officials announced the Shelter-in-Place guideline to help reduce the spread of Coronavirus. Since, then ministers and staff have created programs including the daily 10:10 Pastor’s Message and educational programming as well as online worship. You will find a full list below.
