The prayerful mission of Yale Avenue Christian Church is Caring, Sharing and Serving in the name of Jesus.
Yale Avenue Christian (Disciples of Christ) was organized on January 16, 1955, with the support of the Christian Churches of the Tulsa area to serve the growing needs of Southeast Tulsa.
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE BELIEVE
We are Disciples of Christ, a movement of wholeness in a fragmented world. As part of the one body of Christ, we welcome all to the Lord’s table, as God has welcomed us.”– Disciples Identity Statement.
WHAT TO WEAR?
The main thing is to be comfortable. You will find people wearing anything from shorts to slacks, dresses and suits.
WHAT ARE THE WORSHIP SERVICES LIKE?
8:00 am is the time for our Morning Watch Service. This service is more relaxed with guitar music and a contemplative feel.
Our 10:30 service is our Traditional Service and features organ and piano, bell choir music, and a wonderful church choir.
3:30 p.m. International Mission Fellowship Worship is a fellowship for all communities featuring a Praise Band for an awesome experience in praise and worship.
We celebrate communion every Sunday, all believers are welcome to partake. Our open table is an expression of the commitment of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) to Christian unity.
We baptize by immersion. In baptism the old self-centered life is set aside, and a new life of trust in God begins. Although Disciples practice baptism by immersion, other baptism traditions are honored.
