Generosity of All Souls equals a strong community




In December of 2004, All Souls members voted to model generosity, abundance, and possibility by giving our entire Sunday collections to agencies or programs supporting work or issues important to our congregation. The work of our Generosity Committee encourages and guides intelligent giving to support positive change in the greater Tulsa community and our world. The vision of the committee is to change lives for the better through the generosity of the Church.

All Souls could not offer this generous without the support of our members and friends.

Here’s some messages of thanks from some of our recipients of our Sunday offerings over the last year. Thank you for all that you do.

Mental Health Association Oklahoma (MHAOK) 
We want to thank All Souls for the generous donation of the Sunday plate collection. The Mental Health Association of Oklahoma couldn’t continue its work to help individuals and families in need without the care and support of our community. Thank you from the board, staff, volunteers, and participants of MHAOK.
