  • Sheridan Church at 41st Street and South Sheridan Rd is trying something new. Their pastor is preaching from the rooftop for a special drive-in service. Members will practice social distancing by staying in their cars during service. The pastor says this is a way to spread hope and positivity. They wanted to come up with a creative way to still do service. Service starts at 11 a.m. and this is something they will be doing this weekend and following weekends. They’re not alone, Victory Church also had a weekend of spreading hope in Tulsa. The services started with the pastor flying in via helicopter. He spoke from the rooftop to a sea of cars. People sat in or on their cars. Many honked to show their enthusiasm at times. There is a service Sunday night, it kicks off at 6:30 p.m. and the main event is around 7:15 p.m.
