COVID-19 RESPONSE

Over the last 4 months, we have been faced with an unprecedented situation, not only as a church, but as a global community. As a result, church has looked very different in this season. While we are excited to return to meeting physically, we know that God has used this season to show us how our church can still experience God through online means.

With the safety of our church family being a top priority, we ask that all of those with compromised immune systems or those who have been in direct contact with someone who have a confirmed positive COVID case to stay home. We also ask that those who have been sick or have experienced COVID-19 symptoms not return to TCCO services for a minimum of 14 days. We still love you and we look forward to worshipping with you physically as soon as safely possible.

The following has been prepared by the The Connecting Co. Leadership team with counsel from the The Connecting Co. Elder Board, a cohort of Tulsa Area Pastors, and a variety of other sources.
