Following the Plan


Oklahoma churches must connect with more diverse people to grow God’s kingdom, according to the Strategic Plan.

Such variety can be measured by age, income level, family size, etc. Racial/ethnic diversity, united by Kingdom work, is given attention in this Contact newspaper.

  • In Lawton, a primarily Korean-speaking congregation is worshipping in a new building.
  • In Oklahoma City, Native American students renovated the Leland Clegg church.
  • Four churches in the Tulsa area joined in a pilot "green" Bible study; two are in the Oklahoma Conference, and two in the Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference (OIMC).
  • And a new United Methodist church at Durant was established by the OIMC.
