Change in Worship Services – Rev. Mitch Miller

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

As we are all finding out, “Life as usual” may never mean the same thing again.  But I am not ready to give up just yet, at least not on everything.  I wait and hope and long for the day when we will all be back together in worship again.  But I don’t know when that will be.  I pray sooner rather than later.

The session promised that we would constantly re-evaluate our worship situation as things changed around us.  Again, our primary concern is health and safety of the congregation.  At our stated meeting last night, the Session continued this process.  After a lengthy discussion and considering a number of factors, primarily the recent increase in cases of COVID 19 in the state of Oklahoma and more closely, Oklahoma County, we are making the following changes:

Beginning this Sunday, July 19, we will be worshiping at 11:00am only.  We will continue to stream the service live on Facebook, as well as allow people to worship in the sanctuary.  We will continue to expect people to practice social distancing and we will now require worshippers to wear masks. 

The Session has not set a time frame nor and ending date for this policy.   The Session will continue to monitor the pandemic situation and the state and local government regulations and guidelines.  The Session will re-evaluate this decision at each month’s stated meeting, and more often if necessary.

We encourage those not attending worship in person to watch live on the Santa Fe Presbyterian Church Facebook page each week at 11:00am.  Again, you do not need a Facebook account to log on to the Facebook page.  If you are having trouble with this let us know, we can help.

If you have any questions or need clarification, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Finally, we ask again that you remain patient with us and pray for us as we prepare for this next adjustment in the life of the church.

Your Servant in Christ,
Mitch Miller, Pastor

MARTHA’S HOUSE IS A TRANSITIONAL LIVING PROGRAM FOR HOMELESS FAMILIES.

  • Martha’s House has seven fully-furnished, three-bedroom apartments. Each unit comes stocked with the basics the family may need, provided by apartment sponsors (individuals, churches, businesses, etc.)
  • Residents pay a monthly program fee that covers all bills. A portion of their fees go into an escrow account, which they can use as a down payment on an apartment when they complete the program.
  • Parents in the program at Martha’s House must attend weekly life skills classes that prepare them for permanent, independent living.
  • Residents must either be participating in the ReMerge program through United Way, be employed or be in school full time during the length of their residency. They can live at Martha’s House for up to 24 months.

“Martha’s House was a blessing, a wonderful blessing. When I left my husband I went to many places, but they wouldn’t help me because I had been hit physically, even though I knew my kids and I were in danger. I found Martha’s House, and they were so good to me. You are the angels that God put in my path. You are my family.
