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!

August 18, 2017: Rev. Wiggs' Word of the Week: PEACE
Awesome August is already half way over, but there are still some wonderful things to come! This coming Sunday we will recognize and say a blessing for our dedicated school teachers, followed by a potluck lunch in the Jubilee Hall gym. The following Sunday we will have another opportunity for fellowship because we have a host of food trucks setting up in our north parking lot following Sunday School and the 11:00 service. Mark your calendars and plan to join in the festive August activities with your church family!
You may be familiar with the Prayer of St. Francis from the 13th Century. It is one of my all-time favorite prayers because it is filled with deep wisdom and rich theological insight. As I was reading through the appointed readings for the next several weeks, I kept thinking of this prayer. You may remember that it starts with, “Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.” Borrowing that opening idea, our sermon series will be, Lord Make Me An Instrument of Yours.
This Sunday we will read from Genesis 45:1-15. It is truly a remarkable story. The saga has moved passed Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and now revolves around one of Jacob’s sons, Joseph. Joseph lived an extraordinary life with wild swings from terror to triumph. Much of his turmoil grows out of his family life. In the midst of it, we learn about his view of God. The sermon title simply, “Peace.”
We have something for everyone to take home to help us grow in our prayer lives. I hope to greet you at 8:30 or 11:00 a.m.!
Enjoy our Awesome August activities!
