We must all must recognize the honor or our calling “. . . for you have been chosen by God Himself . . . so that you may show to others how God called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light” (I Peter 2:9). We have been called from darkness to light, so that we might both reveal, by our changed lives the light of God’s love and tell others about our experiences. We have been called to be witnesses!So ask yourself, what activities will have the greatest results? What will be the most productive in terms of finishing God’s work? As disciples of Jesus, we want to be balanced and strive to include, and support every need in Tulsa. Here at Adventist Fellowship we invite you to partner with us, in what you believe is most productive towards spreading the simple message of Jesus.Here are just a few of our ministries. Let us know if you would like to join our efforts in bringing the light of Jesus to Tulsa.

These range from games, and outdoor activities, to nature exploration, and family camping, field trips and community service projects.

Adventist Fellowship God insures women’s ministry is a place for women to grow, learn and fellowship. We facilitate growth in Jesus through a weekly bible study on topics such as women in the bible, living in Jesus and abiding in the Holy Spirit. We have a bible study on Wednesdays at 7:30 pm, in person or zoom, that assists with growing in your walk as a women or young lady with Jesus Christ. While we are growing, we want to learn the bible, the love letter from God, and how to share the word with others. During our bible study, we are consistently learning the context of the scriptures and building our comprehension. We believe it is time for women to rise and share the word of God, the love of God and the lessons we have learned on our journey. We love to get together at a variety of places including women’s prayer breakfast, baby and wedding showers , community outreach and meeting up with each other, virtually and in person. We would love for you to join and connect with us.

At Adventist Fellowship, our hospitality ministry was formed to create an environment where you can connect comfortably with friends both old and new. Whether it is hot meal on a cold day, a cold fruit smoothie when it’s hot outside, or just some warm conversation and fellowship, we want you to feel at home. Historically, this has been the largest ministry at AF and many team members were needed to support this ministry. COVID has changed the scale of how we operate but has not changed our mission. If you are interested in helping to grow this ministry, we would love to have you as part of the hospitality team!
