We are a HISTORIC CHURCH for MODERN PEOPLE!
Welcome to Boston Avenue United Methodist Church! Our mission is to think deeply, grow spiritually and love generously.
We live out that mission through thought-provoking sermons and small groups, fellowship with others, and active volunteering in ministries that support education, social justice and mental health. If you are looking for a faith community, thoughtful programming for children and youth, meaningful mission work, or a place to use your gifts in service to others, there is a place for you here at Boston Avenue!
Join us for worship at 8:30 or 11:00 a.m. on Sundays at our downtown location, or watch live at 11:00 on KTUL Channel 8. You can also live stream here on our website.
We also offer Sunday School for all ages beginning at 9:40 a.m., and worship at Oklahoma Methodist Manor at 11:00 a.m.
If you're looking for a more contemporary worship experience, don't miss our Second Sunday service, held monthly at 6:06 p.m. in the Jubilee Hall.Click to learn more about Boston Avenue!

October 20, 2017: Rev. Wiggs' Word of the Week: COMMITMENT
It is important in personal relationships. It is important in marriages and families. It is important in our life together as a congregation. In fact, it is important because all of life is sustained by it – it is God’s presence. Join us Sunday morning as we look at Moses asking for it, praying for it and having an encounter with the living God.
Life In Community is our sermon series for October. This week we will read from Exodus 33:12-23. As we examine the growing relationship between Moses and God, we will have opportunity to consider where our relationship with God is right now in our sermon, “We Count on God, Part 1.”
“Remember the turtle!” This Sunday is Commitment Sunday for our stewardship campaign this year. We sent out materials this week to help you fulfill your commitment to God through the church. If you have not received yours and would like to participate, please call the church and we will get a packet to you.
As we come forward during worship to bring our commitment card, we are symbolically offering ourselves to God through the church. It is always a powerful moment as the community moves together in response to God’s leading. God is at work in our midst! It is a joyous moment, and we have a little token for you to take with you that will help us remember and celebrate our unity as we participate in this important offering together!
Silver Link Ministry training this Sunday
By: Rev. Amy Venable
Sometimes as people age, they are no longer able to fully engage in the life of the church, but they are still a very important part of our church family. That’s where the Silver Link Ministry (formerly called homebound ministry) comes in. We provide visits, phone calls, and cards to maintain a caring connection with those members who may be unable to participate as they once did.
This Sunday, October 22, the Congregational Care Team and I will offer a training session for the Silver Link Ministry volunteers from 12:15 to 2:00 p.m. Lunch will be provided. You will learn how you can care for the spiritual needs of our elderly members through prayer, scripture, and simply being a caring, listening presence. Previous volunteers have said they feel they receive an even greater blessing than they are giving through their visits.
If you would like to be part of this vital ministry, please call Melanie Linsky at 918-699-0147. If you have questions about the ministry or the training, contact me at 918-699-0130.
Holy Conversations series wraps up this Sunday
The final gathering of our Holy Conversations series will be this Sunday at 6:00 p.m. in Community Hall, with a presentation from Moises Echeverria, President and CEO of OCCJ, on “Cultural Competency.”
This past Sunday, members and guests enjoyed roundtable discussions and a time for group sharing on current LGBTQ issues in the United Methodist Church, facilitated by Rev. Wiggs.
Thank you to the hundreds of members and guests who have gathered on Sunday nights this month to explore controversial topics in our church and society through this series. Videos of each week’s presentation can be found on the Boston Avenue YouTube page.
There is something for everyone!
Whether it be through Sunday School classes, Bible study or extracurricular activities, there is a place for everyone at Boston Avenue!Learn more
