Thousands to participate in annual Day of Service
Asbury United Methodist Church will send more than 2,000 people into the community Sunday to do service projects for some 30 nonprofit agencies.
The annual Day of Service will offer cleaning, painting, yard work, gardening, backpacks for children, hats for cancer patients and a variety of other services from 1 to 5 p.m.
"Asbury is fortunate to have so many generations that care about the Tulsa community," said the Rev. Tom Harrison, senior pastor.
Tulsa Together to promote racial reconciliation
The 19th annual Tulsa Together service to promote racial reconciliation will be held at 6 p.m. Sunday at East Side Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), 1438 S. Indianapolis Ave.
The Rev. Danny Stockstill of Brookside Baptist Church will speak, and music will be performed by a combined choir from several churches.
Co-chairing the event will be representatives from four groups, said the Rev. W.R. Casey, who founded the event 19 years ago.
They are Casey, president of the Christian Ministers Alliance; Monsignor Patrick Gaalaas, pastor of St. Bernard Catholic Church; the Rev. Victor Orta, pastor of the People of God Hispanic Church; and the Rev. Tom Moore, pastor of All Tribes, a Native American church.
"I started this because the church needed to work together to break down racial barriers," Casey said.
"We all believe in the same lord and savior Jesus Christ, and we need to work together."
