Think deeply. Grow spiritually. Love generously.
Welcome to Boston Avenue United Methodist Church! Each week, we come here to receive God’s love, then go beyond our walls to reflect that love to those around us. 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!
Please 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 Channel 8. You can also stream sermons live via our website. School for all ages begins at 9:40 a.m. 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.

January 27, 2017: Pastor Wiggs' Word of the Week: HEALTH
Only three weeks into the New Year, yet in the life of our church we have started new classes for discipleship, hosted a city-wide event and participated in the Martin Luther King, Jr. parade. Our pastors spent a day renewing our covenant with Christ in OKC with our new Bishop, and a number of our staff have already attended a continuing education event. I have met with most of our leaders to take some time for orienting ourselves to leadership in our Methodist tradition.
Life is full within the Boston Avenue family. I hope you are finding a place that nurtures your soul and promotes health and growth in your spiritual life. If we can be of assistance, please call on us, we are here to serve!
In that same vein, we are Listening For God in the New Year in our sermon time during January. This week we will read from Micah 6:1-8. You might remember that verse 8 was the number one favorite verse when I asked the congregation to vote a year or so back. We will use it this week to do some self-evaluation in our sermon, “A Check-Up With God.”
You make a difference in the vitality of our congregation as you live out a healthy spiritual life, fulfilling your membership vows of prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness. An incisive statement that I shared with our leaders this past week from our United Methodist Book of Discipline speaks to all of us: “the church is either faithful as a witnessing and serving community, or it loses its vitality and its impact on an unbelieving world.”
I encourage you to make time to worship God this Sunday at either 8:30 or 11:00 a.m.
Fred Elder series presents young musician, Monica Czausz, in concert this Sunday
At 5:00 p.m. this Sunday, the Fred Elder series of Boston Avenue will present organist Monica Czausz. Czausz (pronounced “chow-sh”) is in her fifth year of study at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music, where she is pursuing a degree in Organ Performance. She serves as Cathedral Organist at Christ Church Cathedral in Houston, Texas. An increasingly sought-after recitalist and an award-winning organist, she has been recognized as one of the top 20 organists under age 30. Czausz has been noted for “causing a stir” in the organ world, and has been described as “playing with great flair.”
For more than 20 years, The Fred Elder Recital Series has been bringing the finest musicians from around the world to perform here. The series was established in 1994 to celebrate his 30th anniversary as Organist of Boston Avenue. A unique feature of the concert is that the screen is removed, allowing the audience to watch the organist play with her hands and feet. Join us Sunday for this unique opportunity to hear a young, renowned organist!
Raise money for missions at our chili dinner and auction!
By: Rev. Sara Pugh Montgomery
Get ready for a fun evening of musical talents, silent auction items, and prize winning chili as we raise money for missions!
The Chili Dinner and Auction Missions Fundraiser is set for Sunday, February 12 at 6:00 p.m.! Every Sunday school class, group, and individual is invited to submit its best chili master into the competition to earn the boasting claim of chili champion of the year! We’re also looking for classes, groups and individuals to put together baskets that will be auctioned off in our silent auction. If you also have auction items - like vacation homes, tutoring, babysitting, pie making, dinner party throwing, etc. - we’d love to auction those off as well, as we continue to build our funds to serve God and others in the world!
Last year, our chili dinner and auction made over $3,500! We’d love to make even more this year so our congregation can continue to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world.
A table will be set up in Bishops Hall this Sunday, January 15, for auction items and baskets. If you have any questions, please contact Rev. Sara Pugh Montgomery at 918-699-0127.
