The Session will meet on June 14 to re-assess when we feel it is safe to return to in-person worship. As it stands now, it's looking like that won't happen soon because cases of Covid are still on the rise here in Tulsa.
Hope is subversive precisely because it dares to admit that all is not as it should be
. And so we are holding out for, working for, creating, prophesying, and living into something better — for the kingdom to come, for oaks of righteousness to tower, for leaves to blossom for the healing of the nations, for swords to be beaten into plowshares, for joy to come in the morning, and for redemption and justice."
- Sarah Bessey
All is indeed
as it should be.
While I don't necessarily believe we should return to the old normal, I'm awaiting a time that we might at least label as the new normal.
Each and every one of us, as individuals, families, and as a community of faith, continue to find ourselves in a disorienting time between what was and what will be. While that it always the case, it has never been to this extreme level before.
As a pastor, I want to remind us of something we all already know, but it never hurts to reiterate: God is and always be with us, especially during times of transition, change, and anxiety.
I would like to invite all of us, and certainly the Session of this wonderful congregation, to continue discerning where we are headed and how God is a part of that process. For us as a community of faith that includes a recommitment to strive for
during these uncharted times is crucial, and our faith is one of the most important contributing factors as we seek God's Sacred Presence in our midst.
Special blessings to you,

Birthday Endowment Fund!
Happy 14th Anniversary, Kim!
Please join the
Personnel Ministry Team
Dr. Kim Childs
on attaining fourteen years of service this month at College Hill as
Director of Music Ministry
. Over these last
, we all have enjoyed the great music delivered by our talented
and our organist, as well as our
BELLissimo Handbell Choir
, all under Kim's direction.
Choir members and others in the congregation have expressed the strengths he has brought to the program. These responses included: "very organized, believes in long-term planning, has very high standards for the program, shows a passion for a quality work environment, works well with others, we're fortunate to have Dr. Childs with his great qualifications and demonstrated dedication to College Hill."
Since we went to our virtual service format, we have also realized Kim's talents include being a great vocalist. When we get back to in-person services, we should request that Kim add his name to the list of reoccurring Sunday morning service soloists.
Church members as Notaries
Recently, church members
Gay Miller, Gretchen Hrachovec, Sue Haskins, Gary Watts
became official notaries and
also has applied.
We did this so we can help others cast absentee ballots in upcoming elections like the one June 30 when we will vote on Medicaid expansion for our state. If you plan to vote absentee and would like one of us to notarize your ballot, please let us know in advance!
If you haven't yet requested an absentee ballot, the best way to do so is through the
OK Voter Portal.
It is easy to navigate and fast to fill out. If you cannot get the portal to work and would like us to mail either an absentee ballot request form or voter registration form to you, please let one of us know right away.
Some important notes: as notaries, we are unable (by law) to provide further assistance than that. We cannot help you fill out the form or mail it in for you. We cannot help you fill out your absentee ballot itself. We are also limited to only notarizing 20 absentee ballots per election.
