• next step building campaign

    At OKC First, we are excited to take another Next Step in Growing our Mission and Ministry Together: continuing to pay down the debt on the Cole Community Center and raise funds to remodel and expand the Children’s Area in our main building. 


    Our mission and ministry are growing, and have indeed already begun to outgrow some of our current facilities. With God’s help, will you partner with us in ministering to young families in our church and our community?

  • Support for Afghan Refugees in Oklahoma

    OKC First is wanting to aid Catholic Charities in their efforts to welcome, support, and sustain our almost 2000 new Afghan neighbors. While they have consistently needed baby items and school supplies, their most urgent needs are transportation. Do you or someone you know have a car to donate? Do you have a personal connection that makes buying a car for cheap possible? Would you be willing to drive a family to an appointment or to the grocery store?
