We are a HISTORIC CHURCH for MODERN PEOPLE!
Welcome to Boston Avenue United Methodist Church! Known around town as the “thinker’s church,” our mission is to think deeply, grow spiritually and love generously. We’re also known as the “doer’s church,” and we are active in ministries that support education, social justice, mental health and those in crisis. If you are looking for a Bible study, 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 a.m. or 11 a.m. Sundays at our downtown location, at 11 a.m. Sundays at our Oklahoma Methodist Manor campus, or watch our live sermon broadcast at 11 a.m. on KTUL Channel 8. You can also stream sermons live via our website. And 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.

June 23, 2017: Pastor Wiggs' Word of the Week: PROMISE
Our youth are back from Chicago and their week at Camp Egan. They are engaging in many spiritual growth experiences, which has prompted me to think how I engage in intentional spiritual growth during the summer. How about you? Do you have any plans to engage in an experience or activity to help you grow closer to God this summer?
We come to the last of our three sermons on Roots of the Covenant. This week we turn to Genesis 18:1-15, which is still part of the Abraham story cycle. Once again there is discussion of the promise Abraham received from God that has yet to be fulfilled. Sarah is also involved in this developing relationship between God and God’s chosen people in the sermon, “Promise.”
We finish our June series this Sunday and shift gears as we move into July for our old time revival! It is a less formal style of worship and a great time to invite friends to join us. I hope you will join us for our July sermon series, which will also take us into August, Scandals of Scripture. We will look at some of the scandalous stories in scripture and the weaknesses portrayed there as a way to explore how we can more effectively deal with our own weaknesses.
Being in worship is a great way to nourish your spiritual life. Being with brothers and sisters in Christ nurtures our Christian life. Each week I strive to educate, stimulate and motivate you to grow in your spiritual life. Join us as at 8:30 or 11:00 as we worship together as a church family and welcome any guests God brings our way!
Get your superhero on at Vacation Bible School!
Four-year-olds through fourth graders, join us June 26-29 for VBS! Hero Central - Get Your Superhero On begins Monday, and we want you to take part! At VBS Hero Central, students will enjoy an interactive, energizing, Bible-based good time as they discover their strength in God. They will become heroes and explore how to serve God and God’s mission for their lives.
After a high-energy opening assembly at Hero Central, the heroes will make their way to the Bible Story Headquarters. Interactive Bible lessons reveal Hero Codes to equip your heroes for an active life with God. Heroes will discover a Hero Verse (Bible memory verse) that will remain with them in their faith long after VBS.
Students will expand on what they’ve discovered by participating in a variety of activities, including making their own art projects at Craft Headquarters, singing new songs at Music Headquarters, exploring the wonders of creation at Science Headquarters, playing games at Recreation Headquarters, and enjoying tasty treats at Snack Headquarters. Along the way, heroes will hear about mission projects as their response to a call for action.
Hero Central - Get Your Superhero On begins at 9:00 a.m. each morning in Jubilee Hall, and runs through 12:30 p.m. Fifth graders can take part in Breakaway VBS during the same time, participating in mission activities around the church and city. The closing celebration for VBS and Breakaway VBS will be Thursday evening.

It is natural for all of us to have questions about our faith. Through exploration of these questions we discover more about what we believe and why. Each week, the group will watch a video featuring a theologian who is there not to give you the answers, but rather to invite you to explore questions and ponder.
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
