Grounded in the Word. Alive in the Spirit. Sent on Mission.

Winter/Spring 2024 Courses

Courses begin January 17, 2024!
Our winter Midweek offerings are now open for registration and we’re introducing something new this semester… Kingswood Courses!
The name Kingswood Courses is inspired by the Kingswood School that was founded by John Wesley outside of the city of Bristol in the early 1740s. The purpose of the original Kingswood School was to train the children of the poor in the area and to equip them with everything they needed to serve God in their lives.
Our Midweek offerings have long served the purpose of training of men and women to pursue the work of the Kingdom with everything they have. Now, you’ll see certain courses marked as Kingswood Courses. This simply means that these courses are focused on helping you be grounded in the Word of God, made alive in the Spirit, and sent out on mission. We’ll continue to offer other great selections like Beth Moore studies, GriefShare, and Financial Peace University.
Please note that childcare for Midweek courses is offered by reservation only. Be sure to indicate your childcare needs when registering for your course.

John Wesley and the Early Methodist Revival [A Kingswood Course]

6:00-7:30 p.m. | Thomas Hall (Level 1) | Dr. Andrew Thompson
January 17-April 24 (No Meeting: 2/14, 3/20, 3/27)
This course will look at the development of the Methodist revival in England under the leadership of John Wesley. We will follow the story of Wesley’s life and ministry from his early years at Oxford University, through his mission experience in the Georgia colony, to his experience on Aldersgate Street in London in 1738 when his “heart was strangely warmed.” From there, we will look at the way God used the ministry of John Wesley and many others to bring thousands of people into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ over the decades that followed. This is the story that is responsible for the spread of Methodism around the world today. (Part of this course is preparation for a Wesley pilgrimage trip to England in October of 2024.)

Reading the Bible for Deep Delight [A Kingswood Course]

6:00-7:30 p.m. | Main Street Learning Center 232 (Level 2) | Dr. Matthew Johnson
January 17-April 24 (No Meeting: 2/14, 3/20, 3/27)
Many Christians pick up their Bibles and read, but how many of them read in such a way that their souls are overflowing with joy? In this course, Pastor Matthew will lead you through a way to read the Scriptures that will not only open your eyes to new information, but more importantly will lead you to greater transformation.

The Proof and Promise of Healing Prayer [A Kingswood Course] 

6:00-7:30 p.m. | Main Street Learning Center 231 (Level 2) | Rev. Todd Lovell
January 17-April 24 (No Meeting: 2/14, 3/20, 3/27)
Miracles of healing characterized Jesus’ earthly ministry. But in recent years, the church has seen this promise of healing used and abused by church leaders. Does that mean that we should abandon the power of healing prayer? Or is the promise of healing still available to believers today? Join Pastor Todd as he explores the biblical witness of healing prayer and how believers can faithfully pray for healing while avoiding the dangerous extremes of cynicism and blind faith.

Daniel: A Beth Moore Study (Continued from Fall 2023)

6:00-7:30 p.m. | Parker Hall (Level 1) | Led by Melissa Fabian
January 10 - March 20 (No Meeting: 3/15)
The prophet Daniel faced unbelievable pressures—to compromise his faith, to live in a hostile culture, and to confront temptations and threats. Today, believers face many of the same trials. This 12 session study examines how believers can develop integrity in our modern-day Babylon, and then explores prophecies from the time of Daniel through the second coming of Christ.


Parlor | 10:00 a.m. | January 17-April 10
*Note that this course is being offered in the daytime for the winter semester. See tulsafmc.org/grief for more information.
GriefShare is a support group to help you move through the grief process. At GriefShare you’ll receive valuable guidance and tips, leading you to relief, comfort, and peace of mind. A GriefShare support group is a safe, welcoming place where people understand the difficult emotions of grief. Through this 13-week group, you’ll discover what to expect in the days ahead and what’s “normal” in grief. Since there are no neat, orderly stages of grief, you’ll learn helpful ways of coping with grief, in all its unpredictability—and gain solid support each step of the way.
