We are a HISTORICAL CHURCH for MODERN PEOPLE!
Welcome to Boston Avenue United Methodist Church! 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!

May 19, 2017: Pastor Wiggs' Words of the Week: REACHING FURTHER
What a joyous time of year! Last Sunday was an important time as we celebrated our mothers and thought together about all the variety of forms that mothering takes in our culture today. This week we mark another rite of passage as we celebrate Senior Sunday. During worship we will be recognizing our high school graduates, but also others graduating from different stages of their educational endeavors. Join us as we mark this significant moment together.
We continue our sermon series, Resurrection Revisited. This week in our sermon, “Resurrection: Reaching Further,” we skip over several chapters in this story from Acts about the earliest Christians and read from Acts 17:22-31. The location of the action has moved to Athens from Jerusalem, and the orator is Paul rather than Peter. Yet it continues to emphasize the significance of the resurrection of Jesus.
We read a couple Sundays back about how the early disciples devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayer. I encouraged all of us to incorporate these practices into our daily routines. Join us Sunday for worship and we will help you take a positive step in that direction!
Plus, if you attend the following Sunday we will celebrate Holy Communion as part of Memorial Sunday, and that will offer you another opportunity to practice these transformational steps the first disciples model for us.
Connecting to the church makes an impact
Throughout May, Boston Avenue will hold a connectional campaign for the entire congregation. The goal of the campaign is to update member information and collect program and volunteer interest to better connect our members to each other and to the church.
You can participate in the campaign by filling out a brief interest survey in Bishops’ Hall or by clicking anywhere in this article. This survey does not commit you to anything, it simply lets our staff better get to know your interests to connect you with people and opportunities in the future. Church membership is not required to participate.
We encourage you to participate in our campaign by filling out a survey! We believe you will be blessed by the new ways you can be connected.
Congratulations to our 2017 graduating senior class!
Our graduating seniors will be recognized at the 11:00 a.m. service this Sunday, May 19. During Sunday school, they will celebrate with their families at a senior high brunch in Community Hall.
We will also recognize those graduating with degrees from higher education institutions at 11:00.
