OKLAHOMA CITY – The “Downtown Holiday Historic Church Tour and Holiday Concert” is scheduled for Sunday (December 6) from 2-7 p.m. The event will raise funds to provide medical and dental care for Downtown’s uninsured neighbors through Good Shepherd Ministries.
The event includes a tour of local churches from 2-5:30 p.m., followed by a tour of Good Shepherd Ministries from 5-6 p.m. The day will conclude with a live performance from pianist and recording artist Matt Schinke at First Baptist, 1201 N. Robinson.
“We are glad to belong to a community in which our church congregations are even more fantastic than the beautiful historic buildings where they come to worship,” said Good Shepherd Ministries Executive Director Pam Timmons.
“Proceeds from the tour will enable our organization to bring essential medical services to uninsured Oklahomans, while at the same time providing an opportunity to welcome the public into our neighboring churches as well as into the Good Shepherd clinic.”
The self-guided tour of downtown historic landmarks includes First Presbyterian, City Presbyterian, St. Joseph Old Cathedral, First Church, St. Paul’s Episcopal, Frontline, First Lutheran and First Baptist. Each church will host visitors to offer an intimate and detailed learning experience.
Wristbands are required to attend all events. They can be purchased for $25 ($20 each for groups of 10 or more). Organizers will raffle an Amish quilt for $5 per ticket or $20 for five.
Proceeds from the event benefit operations and serviceds at Good Shepherd Ministries.
Sponsorships are available for companies and organizations at various levels, and donations will be accepted.
