What We Do

We are messy people doing holy work. Find ways to join us in a small group, volunteer or gather with us for worship…

Meet the Pastor

I am Rev. Heather Scherer and this is my first church as the lead pastor. I have to admit to being excited and terrified on any given day at the prospect of creating something completely new. I have loved working in student ministry for most of my career and found youth ministry very fulfilling. I went to Southern Methodist University on a basketball scholarship. I was an All American and All State athlete. I grew up surrounded by generations of my family all attending First UMC Okmulgee and then eating lunch together at grandma’s house. I have a passion for missions and hospitality. I have been blessed with a very patient husband, Jon, and three beautiful children.

Our Vision

Our vision for Living Water UMC is a community of acceptance and love. Jesus’ willingness to be with all people and his radical commandments to love God and neighbor guide us in our ministry. We recognize that all people are beautiful creations by God and that we all have value.  We strive to be a place of courageous conversation, meaningful worship and faith formation. Our church is not a building but a people with hearts for transforming lives and “being” the church. We are messy people doing holy work.

What We Believe

We believe thaat our creator has always and will always desire to be in relationship with us. We believe God has demonstrated in radical ways a faithfulness to us that is undeserved and life transforming. We celebrate the example that Jesus gives us to live a life of meaning and purpose with a challenge to offer hope to others. We believe the Bible holds the truths of God and that we continue to discover God in every day. We recognize that our ability to know God is limited but our hearts can overflow with the joy that comes from constantly striving to know more.

Small Groups: Small groups are gatherings of people to share, grow and connect with others who are seeking a life with purpose and passion. We encourage you to come check us out. We have new digital classes beginning in June.  Sinners & Skeptics is limited to 10 households at a time and is six weeks long.  Wyatt Smith, philosophy student at TU, and one of our Pastor’s lead this discussion.  Rev. Dr. Hank Jenkins will be leading a class on Vulnerability starting the end of June.  Hiking with Heather is on Saturday mornings (except for July 4th) in June and July. Youth group is meeting on Zoom and doing Sunday night gatherings with Hannah.  For information on youth group (6th-12th) email hphillips@faithtulsa.org. Email Pastor Heather for any of our other classes.  hscherer@faithtulsa.org

Messy People Doing Holy Things: We have done so many things!  We have moped out flooded businesses as worship on a Sunday morning after the floods.  In the spring, we spent 4 Wednesday evenings working on homes and yards for seniors in Glenpool. We packed back-to-school baskets for the school work days for our local teachers.  We gathered supplies and pack “Blessing Bags” for the homeless that we carry in our cars to be given out. We provided and wrapped all the Christmas gifts for the Senior Citizen Center this year.  For Christmas Eve this year, instead of blankets, we will be collecting packages of new socks and underwear to be given to those in need.

Right now we are completing construction on the interior of our new Missions Thrift Store building and need people to build some walls, install some displays and more.  The thrift store is manned completely by volunteers.  There are opportunities to help our guests or to sort and display when the store is not open. This store helps people provide for themselves and maintain their dignity.

Send Pastor Heather an email if you would like to help with any of our ministries. hscherer@faithtulsa.org

Spiritual Growth happens through our Worship services (Sunday@10 am and  night classes.  During this difficult time of self-distancing, we are only meeting for classes online. We invite you to gather with us electronically or on Sunday morning wearing a mask after June 7th.
