Where we are Going

Does Tulsa really need to build another church? We have a surprise for you…

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 a Men’s Group that meets for breakfast, conversation and devotion. Our youth (6th-12th)gather on Wednesday nights at 6:30 pm.  We also have missionaries who volunteer on Tuesdays/Thursdays for our Thrift Store Ministry.

Please email Pastor Heather what kind of group you would like to participate in! (Bible study, book club, social, cooking, support, sports, etc.)

Ripple Outreach Ministry: 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.  Send Pastor Heather an email if you would like to do life transforming outreach with us! heatherscherer1@gmail.com

Spiritual Growth happens through our Worship services (June & July@5:30 Pm) and class afterwards.  We gather at 14440 S. Elwood Ave. Glenpool, Ok. (6 blocks east of the Glenpool light on Highway 75 and 1/2 block South)  Worship is not labeled as one style or another. We might sing a hymn or Bob Marley “One Love” on the same Sunday. We strive to be relevant, inspiring and refreshing in every service. Communion will be served most weeks.  We hope to someday build a prayer garden quiet space and labyrinth on our property.

Vision For The Future

We hope that as we continue to grow, others will find our vision of transforming lives compelling.  Our vision is for a property that is a tornado shelter for our neighbors and a rescue station in times of disaster. We hope to house rooms for tutoring, food distribution and even clothing. That is the surprise! It is a vision for a new kind of church-a missional church built to meet the needs of the community.

Until that time where we have a ministry center, we have a Thrift Store.  We offer community building and great coffee!  Our vision for the thrift store is that the money generated by it will go to impacting our community and blessing our neighbors.  Our hope is to be able to give thousands of dollars away to those in need. We are currently raising money to build this store separate from our current building so it can be open more often. This store is completely manned by missionary volunteers and is funded by donations.

We recognize that spiritual renewal is a desperate need in our culture, and ways to connect with God will always be a part of everything we do. Yes, we will worship but it will be only one of the many ways we hope to transform lives.   We hope to have classes like Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace, English as a Second Language, and a  Support Group for Veterans.

Maybe someday we can multiply our vision into multiple locations serving many people in real ways!

If you would like to contribute to this vision, please go to our GIVE page and make a contribution. If your church would like to help us plant our church, Pastor Heather would love to come visit with you about ways to do that. Please see our Partnership Letter and the Baby Shower list for current and future needs.
