Spirituality is about deepening our connection with God or the sacred. We pray for God to transform us on an individual level, by following Christ, and on a group level, by building the kingdom of God. We try to deepen our spirituality through the ministries of worship, education, fellowship and mission.

Worship. We gather for worship each Sunday at 10:45 a.m. Our service usually ends at 12 noon. We enjoy singing as a congregation and sing six to eight traditional and contemporary hymns each week. We share our joys and concerns with each other and our ministers include them in their pastoral prayers. Our ministers usually select a sermon text from the Revised Common Lectionary and preach teaching sermons that explore the Biblical context of the good news and apply it to contemporary settings. The high point of each service is our sharing of the loaf and cup. 

Education. We have weekly classes for children and adults. Children meet for Sunday School before worship from 10:00 to 10:45 a.m. Children follow the Grow Proclaim Serve curriculum.

Adults meet for discussion on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. Each semester we study a different aspect of progressive Christianity. Authors that we have studied include Richard Rohr, John Dear, Walter Wink, Marcus Borg, Diana Butler Bass, Michelle Alexander, Jonathan Haidt and Martha Grace Reese. We also have watched and discussed Living the Questions 2.0, Saving Jesus Redux, Countering Pharaoh's Production-Consumption Society Today and Painting the Stars.

Fellowship. We love to eat together. We meet for fellowship dinner on the second Sunday of each month, immediately following worship. Everyone brings a pot-luck dish to share. Men's breakfast is held on the first Saturday of each month at 9:00 a.m. and is served either in the kitchen or in a local diner. Women's breakfast is held on the last Saturday of each month at 9:00 am. We have taken a group of 20 to an Oklahoma City Dodgers game the past three summers.

Mission. We are an open and affirming congregation of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and welcome all people to participate in the life and leadership of our congregation. Our Mother's Day Out program offers classes for 3-, 4- and 5-year-olds from the neighborhood. We participate as a vendor in the Oklahoma City Pride Festival to reach out to LGBT people. We hold a community Easter Egg Hunt on our lawn each year. Our congregation is a member of Voices Organized in Civic Engagement (VOICE OKC); several members participate in VOICE activities in the areas of criminal justice reform and poverty. We
are a Green Chalice Congregation, committed to caring for God's creation.
