Ministry in a Minute
Tulsa-Boston Avenue held a Blessing of the Pets on Sept. 23 and on Sept. 27. The event was described as a time of saying thanks to God for beloved pets. Because of the pandemic, the occasion was offered as a drive-thru event. Participants pulled up with their pets in the car, and ministry leaders offered a prayer of blessing for every pet. A gift that included a blessing card and a bag of treats was also offered to each family. Photos submitted by Caitlin Dryke, the communications director for Tulsa-Boston Avenue.
