Informational meetings

In a June 8th email to the congregation, we informed the church of the Leadership Board's decision to begin a discovery and discernment process surrounding the issue of continued affiliation or disaffiliation from the United Methodist Church and the Oklahoma Annual Conference. As a part of that process, we want to schedule a series of informational meetings to discuss the issues facing Church of the Servant.

To promote conversation and allow space to ask questions, we are limiting the size of the meetings to fifty (50) people with registration required. We will offer as many meetings as necessary to meet the demand for them among the congregation. The initial schedule for the discussions is as follows:

  • Wednesday, July 27 (6:00 pm)
  • Sunday, July 31 (12:00 pm)
  • Wednesday, August 3 (6:00 pm)
  • Sunday, August 7 (2:00 pm)
  • Wednesday, August 10 (6:00 pm)
  • Sunday, August 14 (12:00 pm)
  • Wednesday, August 17 (6:00 pm)
  • Sunday, August 21 (12:00 pm)
You can sign up in the following ways: online by clicking on the REGISTER FOR A MEETING link, by emailing Rachel Gillespie at, or by calling at 405-728-4746. Reservations for a given meeting will be made on a first-come, first-served basis. It might prove helpful if an entire Sunday school class signs up together. Communicate the dates within your group and work with Rachel to find a time-slot that meets the need of your class.

"FINAL THOUGHT" meetings

On Wednesday, August 31, and September 7, two identical meetings will be held on these dates to share final details regarding the votes to be held on September 11. These meetings will be important to hear final thoughts as we prepare to cast our votes on September 11 at 2:00 p.m.  No registration necessary.  

  • Wednesday, August 31, at 6:00 p.m., in the Celebration Center
  • Wednesday, September 7, at 6:00 p.m., in the Celebration Center
