Immanuel Lutheran Church - Oklahoma City Sustains Severe Damage From Storm
Please keep Immanuel Lutheran, OKC, Rev Clint McMullin, and their ministry in your prayers as they cope with overnight storm damage that blew off the roof of their choir room, and flooded the south side of their education wing, offices, and Pastor McMullin’s office. No one was in the building when the damage occurred, thank God.

California Rose Parade ~ 2018
Petal pushers are not just pants you mother used to wear. Petal Pushers is a group of 4,000 volunteers who decorate ten Rose Parade floats in the Pasadena Tournament of Roses parade. Each year, volunteers from across the nation assemble in December during Detail and Decorating Days to decorate the Lutheran Hour Float, which is the ONLY Christian themed float in the parade, and other floats. Volunteers range in age from 13-96. For the past 60 years, the mission of the Lutheran Hour Float Committee has been to provide a Christian witness and message of hope in Jesus Christ, to the un-churched, who view the float in person or through the media.
How would you like to be a Petal Pusher? We will leave from Tulsa or OKC on Dec. 27, 2017 and take a motorcoach to California, see sights along the way, help decorate floats for the parade, see the parade from bleacher seats, and arrive back home on Jan 4, 2018. There are brochures with more information. If you have questions you may contact Eddie Morris at the information listed below.
