Church Reopening for Sabbath Services May 16, 2020

 

 

In line with the state of Oklahoma and Oklahoma Conference guidelines, the First Adventist Church of Tulsa will reopen for Sabbath services on May 16, 2020.

There will be a general adult Sabbath School program at 9:30 am followed by a Worship Service at 10:45 am.  The state reopening guidelines recommend NO children's Sabbath School classes at this time.

Oklahoma state guidelines recommend that persons over 65 years of age as well as those with complicating medical conditions, continue to stay at home during the month of May.  We will live stream both adult Sabbath School and Worship Services.

In order to protect the safety of those who wish to attend our church services, we will be following these guidelines recommended by the state of Oklahoma:

  1.  Do not come to church if you are experiencing one or more of these symptoms: cough, congestion, fever, nausea, sore throat, muscle pains, headache, chills, or loss of taste or smell.
  2. Wear a face mask.
  3. Refrain from hugs and shaking hands; avoid group conversations in hallways, etc.
  4. Stay at least 6 feet away from others.
  5. Wash hands or use hand sanitizer frequently.
  6. Bring your own Bible with you, as we will not have pew Bibles or hymnals for use.
  7. Seating:  State guidelines recommend seating in every other row of pews, keeping one pew empty between occupied ones.  Families may sit together, but there should be at least 6 feet between families in each pew.
  8. Offerings will be received in a collection box at the rear of the church sanctuary at the end of both Sabbath School and the Worship Service.

Things will be different, but we will be worshiping together in God's house once again.  We look forward to seeing you in church in the near future!

 

INSPIRATION

Pray for His Grace
 

“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.” 2 Cor. 12:9-10
 
“God will do great things for those who trust in Him. The reason why His professed people have no greater strength is that they trust so much to their own wisdom, and do not give the Lord an opportunity to reveal His power in their behalf. He will help His believing children in every emergency if they will place their entire confidence in Him and faithfully obey Him.” Patriarchs and Prophets, p. 493
 
 Heart Questions: 
As you reflect on Hebrews 4:12, how do you see the Word of God piercing your own heart? Have you been convicted by something you’ve read in God’s Word recently? Have you acted on your conviction, or have you pushed the promptings of the Holy Spirit aside? Share your thoughts with someone. Then pray that we as a people would not only hear the Word and love the Word, but that we would also seek to live according to the Word.
