SUNDAY SCHOOL: Sunday School meets every week at 9:30am in the gym. Students meet as a whole group celebrating God’s love, and transition into their age groups to dig deeper into God’s word. All classes finish in the gym together refocusing on the day’s lesson before parents pick them up in the gym! Our Theme for this Sunday School year is: Digging Into God’s Word, Building Up Our Faith.
 
NURSERY: There is a nursery provided on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights during CTR-U for infants, toddlers, and young children. All nursery workers have background checks on file, and have a heart for children. The nursery is located in the Early Childhood Center, ask an elder or greeter if you need help finding the classroom. If you are interested in working in the nursery contact DCE Intern Carinna Corbett at families@ctrtulsa.org to find out more information.
