Nueva Esperanza creates chapel
In Tulsa, a new prayer chapel was dedicated May 23 by the Nueva Esperanza congregation.
The Hispanic congregation and Rose Hill UMC share the building at 748 N. Louisville Ave. Their food pantry on site recently was moved into a larger room. Working with Pastor Daniel Llanos-Jimenez, a small group in the Hispanic fellowship transformed the newly vacated room into the "Mount of Prayer" chapel.
Rev. Llanos-Jimenez said the chapel will be used for small-group services, prayer vigils, and for counseling and prayer sessions with people assisted through the food pantry ministry. The space will seat about 20 people, according to Pastor David Reynolds of Rose Hill.
On Pentecost Sunday, the dedication ceremony was led by Joe Lynch, who chairs the Tulsa District Hispanic Ministries Committee. Most of the committee members also attended.
