“Sowing Seeds, Reaping Harvests and Transforming the World” is this year’s conference theme. Based on Paul’s second letter to the church at Corinth, we are reminded that times were uncertain then just as they are now.
Yet, the great apostle says that God is able to provide for them “every blessing in abundance” so they could give cheerfully and be “enriched in every way” because of this generosity.
The people of Oklahoma sow seeds bountifully, reap harvest cheerfully and transform the world boldly.
This year’s Special Offering will go toward the ongoing work of planting new faith communities and reaching the needs of the Greenwood area of Tulsa.
In light of this year’s conference theme as well as the 100th observance of the Tulsa Race Massacre, we encourage cheerful giving to this year’s annual conference offering. More information will be released from Bishop Nunn’s office soon.
