In 1994, under the leadership of Dr. Connie Cole Jeske, First United Methodist Church of Tulsa began a relationship with Eugene Field Elementary School. This relationship has now seen over 25 years of love, prayer, support, encouragement for students and staff, and tangible acts of love and service.
Through much change in the school and surrounding neighborhood, one thing has remained constant and that is God’s faithfulness. God has been faithful to continually provide everything needed in the way of resources and people power. He has also been faithful to affirm his movement in the neighborhood and his call for us to pray and be available to the work he is doing in West Tulsa.
