Stay for “Fun and Fellowship” after the service!

The Land is an outdoor faith community dedicated to connecting with and caring for all of Creation!

Our community is open ALL! The labels and distinctions of society tend to divide us, at The Land we call on God’s love to unite us.

We take a few moments to release the pressures of our lives, bringing ourselves completely to this time and space and readying ourselves to receive that which divine presence has for us to share.

You've come to bring peace,
To be Love, To be nearer to us
You've come to bring life,
To be Light, To shine brighter in us

Oh Immanuel
God with us

Our Deliverer, You are Savior
In Your presence we find our strength
Over everything, our Redemption
Immanuel
You are God with us

Oh You've come to be hope
To this world, For Your honor and name
And You've come to take sin,
To bear shame, And to conquer the grave

Oh Immanuel
God with us

Our Deliverer, You are Savior
In Your presence we find our strength
Over everything, our Redemption
Immanuel
You are God with us

You are here
You are holy
We are at peace in Your glory
We are at peace in Your glory
We are at peace in Your glory
We are at peace in Your glory

Our Deliverer, You are Savior
In Your presence we find our strength
Over everything, our Redemption
Immanuel
You are God with us

The Parable of the Widow and the Unjust Judge

Then Jesus told them a parable about their need to pray always and not to lose heart. He said, “In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor had respect for people. In that city there was a widow who kept coming to him and saying, ‘Grant me justice against my opponent.’ For a while he refused; but later he said to himself, ‘Though I have no fear of God and no respect for anyone, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will grant her justice, so that she may not wear me out by continually coming.’” And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God grant justice to his chosen ones who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long in helping them? I tell you, he will quickly grant justice to them. And yet, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”

At The Land, communion is an open table where all are invited to participate.

The God Who Hears

You are the God who hears
The God who listens
The God who hears our every cry
You are the God who hears
And the God who listens
We thank you Lord, you hear our every word

You are the God who sees
The God who watches
Who takes all things into account
You are the God who sees
You’re the God who watches
We thank you Lord, you see our every move

You are the God who knows
You know my weakness
Our troubled grief and bitter pain
You are the God who knows
Lord, you know my weakness
We thank you Lord, you feel our every pain

You are the God who speaks
By Word and Spirit
The God whose sheep will hear your voice
You are the God who speaks
By Your Word and Spirit
Speak to us Lord, we open hearts to You

We invite you to participate in nurturing The Land by adding compost to our compost bin (info here), supporting us financially and by spending time in fellowship.

God makes springs pour down the valleys
Streams that flow from every hill
Quench the thirst of all his creatures
and the donkeys drink their fill

Birds sing sweetly in the branches
nesting by the riverside
From above the earth is watered
by God’s bounty satisfied

He makes grass grow for the cattle
plants for man to cultivate
Bringing from the earth its produce
food for all mankind to eat

Wine that to man’s constitution
joy and gladness will impart
Oil that makes the face resplendent
bread that fortifies the heart

Blessed with water are the forests
trees which to our God belong
Mighty cedars that he planted
on the heights of Lebanon

See the moon that marks the seasons
to its setting moves the sun
You send darkness night approaches
foraging has now begun

We invite you to share in the joy and wonder of creation by taking a reflective walk around The Land. Our path was is a loving and generous gift from the Youth Group at McFarlin UMC, Norman, Oklahoma!

A time of sharing the Divine love of Creation and each other…

Parking at The Land

We gather for worship at the tent located at the far east of the property. While there is parking available in the lot directly to the right of the green entry gate, there are three spots right next to the tent for people who need them. Please don’t hesitate to use them if you need them for health reasons or as an loading/unloading area. As the weather grows colder, worship will move to the new tent with four walls and a heater.
