Birthday Banquet is our annual youth mission fundraiser that helps subsidize the cost of youth spring and summer mission trips, making the trips more financially accessible for more students. This year’s live auction items include multiple vacations, a Hasty Bake, and dinner with Rev. Moffatt! Be sure to check out the live auction items and silent auction vendors at fumctulsa.org/birthday. Tickets are on sale on Sunday mornings at First United Methodist.

Ash Wednesday Services

February 26, 2020 | 12:15 & 6:00 p.m. | Sanctuary

Our midday Ash Wednesday service is a traditional service of word and song. It will help you begin the season of Lent when we examine our own mortality and contemplate the sacrifice of Jesus leading up to Easter Sunday. Our evening Ash Wednesday service is a more modern experience. This service features readings and modern music that help turn your attention toward the death of Jesus and his ultimate resurrection.

Mark Your Calendar for Rocky Railway Bible Camp

Kids’ lives are unpredictable, filled with ups and downs, drops and dips, twists and turns. First Kids’ Rocky Railway Bible Camp is intentionally designed to show kids the power of Jesus…something they can count on to pull them through when life doesn’t feel so fun or adventurous. At Rocky Railway, kids will deepen their friendship with Jesus, who empowers them to boldly face life’s challenges! After the opening session, 4th and 5th graders will head to their own special VBX while the rest of the crews head out for crafts, Bible stories, music, movie and snacks. A special class will be formed for preschool kids whose parents are volunteering that week. T-Shirts and CDs will be available for $10 each. Registration runs from March 1 to July 20 at fumctulsa.org/summercamps.
