A small African church mainly for Ethiopian refugees on Oklahoma City's northwest side. According to the gentlemen that I talked to while taking the pictures, they have between 40 and 50 attendees at their services. All are welcome. The service is in an African language (Ge'ez) but there is also an English translation. If the rest of the congregation is as nice as those two gentlemen, this would be a wonderful church to visit.

Services start at 6 am on Sundays, and end at 12:30 pm. Parking is to the west on NW 112th.

I found this church while looking around in Google Maps. I had never heard of this particular religion before and thought it would be an interesting addition to the category. The two gentleman said that the CBS show "60 Minutes" had just aired a show on Aug 2, 2020 on the original church in Ethiopia, made out of one huge rock.

Wikipedia has a good article about this particular denomination.
