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.

March 24, 2017: Pastor Wiggs' Word of the Week: LISTEN
As the sun shines longer, the hours of daylight extend beyond supper time, and so many things in nature begin to sprout, it leads us to think about new life. As Christians, we continue through Lent, and the closer we get the more aware we become that Easter is coming. Are you preparing yourself for a full celebration of new life?
Sunday in worship we continue our preparations with our sermon series, To Pray and To Love. This week we turn to 1 Samuel 16:1-3. The story tells us how God led Samuel to serve. We will explore what that means for us, especially in this season of Lent where we are working on how to listen more closely for God to speak to us in our lives. The sermon title is, “Approaching Prayer Anew.”
You may not have had a chance to try out the prayer stations, but let me encourage you to look for some time in your life when you can do that in the next couple of weeks. They are set up around the building for your use! They are an interesting way to think about your prayer life, your relationships and your faith. I hope you can experience them before Easter (which is in just three weeks!).
