One of the most basic human needs is connection to other humans—a community to belong to and to participate in. This need is what brings many people to our doors. We are eager to help you get connected to our church family. We offer many programs that can help you to get better acquainted with people in smaller groups. New groups are always popping up. We are a very social community that values spending time together.
Pastoral Care at Hope is provided by our ministers and our Care Team.
The Care Team helps coordinate support for our members in time of need. This might include meals, rides for medical issues, homebound and hospital visits, and assistance with connecting to other resources. Please call the church for more information at 918.481.0999.
The Singers of Hope
Hope’s Choir – “The Singers of Hope” – provides music for Sunday morning worship services and special events such as the annual Sing Noel Program. Supported by our nine-foot Baldwin Concert Piano (recognized as one of the finest pianos in the city of Tulsa) and a variety of guest instrumentalists, the choir offers a wonderful opportunity to use a love of music to support Hope’s mission.
Rehearsals take place each Wednesday at 7:00 pm. The ability to read music is not required. An audition is not required. The only requirement is that you love good music and great fellowship and want to help support the mission and values of our Free Church.
What is it? Where is it? When is it? Who can join? How much are the dues?
Supper Club is a longtime Unitarian tradition; it’s a gathering of small groups of eight or so people sharing a meal. It’s a casual, social evening of dining and getting to know other members. There’s no other gathering we have quite like it at Hope. It’s an easy way to allow us to share more about each other and what brought us to this church community. Supper Club is unique in that aspect.
Dinners are generally held at the homes of those who want to join the monthly gatherings. When you sign up, you agree to host/hostess one month and you’re a guest for the remainder of the gatherings. The Supper Club coordinators assign the guests to each host/hostess, who provides the main dish and beverages, and contacts each guest to provide side dishes and dessert.
The sharing of a meal and the camaraderie makes for an enjoyable evening.
Dues? There are none!
Women of Hope
In modern Greek, the word phlia means friendship. It includes loyalty to friends, family, and community and love between friends. That’s the kind of love you’ll find at our Women of Hope group. We gather in the evening at the church on the first Thursday of each month for a potluck dinner and a program.
Our programs feature speakers on topics that range from community outreach programs to theater, gardening, literature, music, and other activities. Come be our guest!
Women of Hope does not have a formal membership. We encourage all women of Hope to join us the first Thursday of each month for a program and fellowship. Men are welcome as well!
We look forward to seeing you all.
Threads of Hope
You are invited to join this informal creative group working on our Threads of Hope project to supply lap blankets, shawls, baby blankets for those in need in our church community. (You’re also welcome to work on projects that don’t involve stitchery!) The group meets occasionally at Hope’s Log Cabin; please contact the church to ask when the next meeting is scheduled. There’s no need to RSVP: just show up with a project you’re working on.
InReach is a program that connects small groups (usually three or four people), led by trained facilitators, to spend time exploring the monthly themes in a deliberate and thoughtful way. InReach groups meet once a month, and there are daytime and evening groups with openings. If you’re interested in participating, please contact the church at 918.481.0999 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
