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!

November 17, 2017: Rev. Wiggs' Word of the Week: HELP
On Thursday afternoon our program staff will pause from regular tasks to make calls to all congregation members we have not yet heard from in our Stewardship Campaign. We want to give every member of the congregation a chance to continue to support us through financial pledges for 2018.
It is important for us to be good stewards of what God has entrusted to us. This is one way we do that. If you have supported us in the past and we have not heard from you this year, we will be trying to call you on Thursday. When we all join efforts to fulfill God’s call we will move into the new year with great strength!
We have learned some important lessons already this month from the Bible in our sermon series, Growing With The Israelites. This Sunday we will read from Judges 4:1-7. It informs us of ongoing life with the Israelites after the time of Joshua. It repeats a familiar theme of how difficult it was for the people of God to remain faithful as it says again they, “did what was evil in the sight of the LORD” (v. 1). Join us as we examine the persistence of sin in our lives compared with God’s faithfulness in the sermon, “Help In Times of Trouble.”
If you have not received your stewardship materials and would like to participate in the campaign, please call the church today and we will assist you right away – call 918-583-5181 and ask for Brenda Reed, who is our Business Administrator.
Join us Saturday night for a Route 66 Marathon weekend worship and potluck!
By: Rev. Sara Pugh Montgomery
Does it feel like it takes about the length of a marathon to figure out how to get to Boston Avenue on the Sunday morning when the Route 66 Marathon is run? Do you get trapped in your neighborhood for the day? Are you a runner that has been training hard for this race and looking forward to a new PR? Would you like to have a Sunday morning to sleep in, but still want to come and worship with your community of faith? If you answered yes to any of these questions, we have a great opportunity for you!
Our Second Sunday worship team is offering an opportunity to worship at 5:00 p.m. this Saturday, November 18. Our praise band will lead the congregation in some of our beloved hymns, including All Creatures of our God and King, Amazing Grace, and This Little Light of Mine, as we lift up our voices to God. We’ll have scripture reading, sharing of joys and concerns, a blessing over all of our runners and communion together around tables.
Following communion, we’ll enjoy a potluck meal together as we continue to extend God’s table of fellowship! Fried chicken will be provided by the church, and we invite congregation members to bring a favorite side dish or dessert to share. We hope to see you for Saturday night worship this weekend!
Missions survey will show the amazing work of our church
By: Rev. Sara Pugh Montgomery
There’s a great proverb that says that many hands make light work. This proverb is certainly lived out among us at Boston Avenue! As the missions minister here, I get so excited when I hear of another great mission that our congregation supports through our Sunday School classes, our UMW circles, our youth groups, and our children’s ministries. I want to share in these joys and celebrations with the larger congregation, as well!
Ed Payton and Blaire Hines have developed a useful mission inventory survey that we are asking each group to fill out to share with us how your group participates in missions in the world. The surveys can be filled out online by clicking anywhere in this article.
For each mission activity that your group does, we’d love to know the name of the organization, how much money you contribute toward it, how many people volunteer hands and time to serve, and the estimated number of people that are served by the mission. We’ll compile all of this information together and do a full presentation of our missional activities as a congregation at our Chili Cookoff and Mission Fundraiser on January 28. You’ll be able to see how the many hands of Boston Avenue are making large impacts on the world through our missional giving and volunteering! We also hope to be able to connect you to other groups within our congregation that work with the same agencies so that your missional passions can be explored together.
Please take the month of November to fill out these mission inventory surveys and return them to Blaire Hines or Ed Payton, or place them in your Sunday School class packets. If you have any questions or need help filling out the survey, please contact me at 918-699-0127 or Ed Payton at 918-760-8833. Thank you for the many wonderful ways you represent Boston Avenue in the world, and the ways you bring Christ to many individuals that need the reminder that they are loved! I’m grateful to be your pastor.
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
