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 31, 2017: Pastor Wiggs' Word of the Week: LIFE & DEATH
By the time you receive this we will be just 11 days from Palm Sunday. Palm/Passion Sunday is the start of what Christians often call Holy Week – the last week in the physical life of Jesus. These 7 days leading up to Easter establish the context for the crucifixion and resurrection. Therefore, they are pivotal for the whole Christian story. I hope you are marking your calendar to be a here for each Sunday between now and Easter, as well as to participate in the special services during Holy Week on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
This Sunday our lesson deals more directly with life and death. We will read from Ezekiel 37:1-14. In this passage, Ezekiel describes a vision he receives from God about new life in the face of devastating death. Our sermon title will be, “Our Life and Death Is With Our Neighbor.”
Have you taken time to enter into a deeper prayer life this year during Lent? I invite you to consider finding some time to experience the prayer stations around the church. They are a great way to try out some different kind of prayer practices. You may just find a new way to pray that more effectively connects you with God!
BAY Troupe presents...
Thoroughly Modern Millie
By: Dr. Joel Panciera
The Boston Avenue Youth Troupe will present Thoroughly Modern Millie at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, April 7, and at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 9. Both performances will be in Community Hall.
Ticket sales continue this Sunday in Bishops’ Hall following both worship services, or by clicking anywhere in this article. They are $10 each, with a $25 maximum per family.
The stage version of “Thoroughly Modern Millie” took the theatre world by storm in 2002, winning 6 Tony Awards, including best musical. Based on the 1967 movie of the same name, this fabulous show is brimming with all that you would expect from a Broadway smash show: huge production-dance numbers, wonderfully silly comedy, a heartwarming love story, a really clever villain, and also a thoughtful message that will resonate with all ages.
In the turbulent 20’s, a young woman decides to leave rural Kansas to make a new life in NYC. Her goal is to become a “modern” girl, wearing stylish flapper clothes, short hair, enjoying jazz, and challenging the conventions of traditional society. She decides to find a wealthy man to marry, but discovers many of the plain, boring Kansas values still remain true for “modern” girls. Come to the show to see how it ends!
I am so proud of how our youth are attacking this great show. The development of their singing, dancing and acting has been a joy to watch. I think this year’s BAY Troupe will be huge fun for everyone that comes! The singers and a band of 15 instruments will make it impossible sit still for some of these 20’s jazz-style pieces!”
