Locally and Beyond Tulsa

Each group has a particular mission through which they serve needs of our local community and international connections.

Anglicans for Life is a Christ-centered ministry that provides educational and pastoral resources to churches in the Anglican Communion, to help them bear witness to the sanctity of life. We believe that every person in every church doing one thing every day to uphold the sacredness of Life can make a difference—and every person means you! No matter your age, experience, or talents, there are things you can do to celebrate, protect, and honor Life. We’ve provided some resources, examples, and guides to help you in this ministry. Will you join with us?
The Advent Conspiracy is an international movement centered around bringing a deeper meaning to Christmas. The movement is characterized by its four founding principles: Worship Fully, Spend Less, Give More, Love All. The movement’s message is to avoid getting caught up in the consumerism surrounding the holiday in order to celebrate Christmas more fully. The funds go to support the Anglican Relief and Development Fund.
Barnabas Fund is an aid agency for the persecuted Church. We work in over 60 countries around the world where Christians are marginalized because of their faith.
The Oklahoma Chapter of Blue Star Mothers send “freedom boxes” – containing personal care and luxury items, as well as food and drink – to our troops.

Card Ministry

The card ministry offers the opportunity to communicate with our church family on special occasions, such as birthdays and anniversaries. It is a privilege to be able to share the good wishes of our congregation to individuals on those special days. A list is provided by the office each month so that greetings may be sent in a timely fashion. Please consider signing up for a month. You will share and receive a blessing.

Food Pantry

Dry goods and canned food are collected all year round and donated to John 3:16 Mission, Inc. monthly to be distributed to local families in need. If you find yourself in need of assistance, please contact the parish office or John 3:16 at 918.587.1186.

John 3:16 Mission is an interdenominational Christian ministry that exists to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of Tulsa’s hungry, homeless and at-risk. For many years, CHSA serves a meal on Super Bowl Sunday. Join us for some fun, no matter which team you are cheering.
Our society and our churches do not know how to care for a widow in her grief. Sure, there are casseroles and sympathy cards for the first few weeks… But what about one year, three years, or ten years later? Many widows feel like they are in a “fog” after their husband’s death. They often lose friendships, experience financial hardship, or struggle with illness themselves. The realities of life as a widow usually bring their own, fresh grief. But being a widow does not have to mean being alone. Stand in the Gap empowers the church to come around widows and support them in practical and emotional ways. Whether hosting regular widows-only social gatherings, providing practical home maintenance education, or facilitating small groups of widows in relationship with each other, Stand in the Gap provides tested and proven methods to help widows adjust to life after loss.
Stand in the Gap Ministries is a prayer-based, church-driven, small group movement, focused on helping a neighbor rise above overwhelming life challenges through a loving, spiritual family experience. The Stand in the Gap Ministries method is about coming alongside a person in need, prayerfully supporting them, helping them make life changes, sharing your life (not your money) with them, and experiencing the profound love of God in community.
