You are a beloved child of God! We hope you will find Oologah United Methodist Church a place where you can learn about God's love and direction for your life as we seek to follow Jesus Christ. Know that you are welcome here whether you have a long history with faith, have never stepped foot in church before, or are struggling with doubt.
Here are a few things you can expect when you come to OUMC:
1) A welcoming place for children: We have nursery for those 2 and under, Sunday school for children of all ages at 9:40am, and Children's Worship during part of the 11am service. Children are welcome to be in the 8:30am and 11am worship services as we welcome the sounds of children. We also have a feeding/changing/rocking room available if you desire. On Wednesday nights during the school year we have classes for kids of all ages following the all church potluck at 5:30pm. Classes begin at 6:30pm. In the summer we have Vacation Bible School (June 20-23, 2016 - sign up today!) and special kids events such as a day at the Muskogee Water Park, Tulsa Zoo day, and church camps. Check the church calendar for details or contact our Children and Youth Director, Calley Gray, here at the church.
2) A welcoming place for youth: Youth are welcome in worship and also in leadership through music, speaking, and leading prayer. We have youth Sunday school classes at 9:40am and Wednesday night youth activities at 6:30pm following the church potluck at 5:30p during the school year. We have youth mission opportunities, church camps, lock-ins, and study groups. The youth are invited to serve on all committees that make the church run. We see the youth not only as the leaders of tomorrow but the leaders of today! Check our church callendar for details or contact our Children and Youth Director, Calley Gray, here at the church.
3) A welcoming place for adults of all ages: Yes, we love adults, too! We worship together, learn together, offer praise and prayer together, laugh and cry together. We serve together and share the Word through our lives together. Come for worship at 8:30am (traditional) or 11am (contemporary) with a special all church blended service at 11am on those special 5th Sundays of the month. Take your pick from a variety of Sunday school classes at 9:40am and Wednesday night classes during the school year. We also have United Methodist Men, United Methodist Women, Mission, Prayer, and Book groups to choose from. Check the church calendar for details.
4) YOU ARE WELCOME HERE! When we have Holy Communion on the first Sunday of the month, you are welcome to take part in this sacrament. The table of the United Methodist Church is open to all people.
We hope to see you soon!
Peace in the name of Jesus Christ,
Rev. Jennifer Long
