“Candidating Week” is a time when our minister candidate, Rev. Justin McCreary, will be in Tulsa to meet the congregation. He’ll preach twice, host the weekly “Cocktail Hour” Zoom meeting, meet with church staff, and attend several meetings.

Here are the events to which the entire congregation is invited:

All members of church committees, teams, and boards are especially encouraged to attend.
  • Friday, May 20th: There’s been a schedule change! The “Walt Disney – A Decade in Concert” event that had been scheduled for 7:30 PM on Friday, May 20th has been postponed, so instead, a tour of the Greenwood Rising Black Wall Street History Center will take place from 5:30-6:30 PM. A limited number of free tickets will be available at the church on Sunday, May 1st. Contact James Donovan for more information.
  • Saturday, May 21st: From 1:00-2:00 PM, take a tour of the church’s gardens and grounds with Julia Harris and Rev. Justin. From 2:00-4:00 PM, Rev. Justin will join the Feed the Homeless volunteers.

At 12:15 PM, the Annual Congregational Meeting will be held in the Great Hall. During the meeting, the members of the congregation will vote whether to “call” Rev. Justin to be our new settled minister.

Following the meeting, join the rest of the congregation for lunch featuring Rick Eagleton’s smoked meats!
