Definitely not something you'll see often. If you like the Art Deco style, this is an amazing application of it to a church. The soaring tower is decorated with angular abstract designs and figures, all beautifully integrated into a harmonic whole. (Please forgive the alliteration.) Unfortunately, I visited at a time when the church was closed, so I could not... More

This Art Deco church has an amazing tower worthy of a city skyline. The ornamental details on the building are interesting and worth a closer look.

We don't attend Boston Avenue Methodist, but the building is so beautiful. My youngest daughter was married in the chapel. It was the perfect size for a small wedding. The history and architecture of the church is wonderful.

We were part of a tour group and the guide was well-informed. She explained the architecture's symbolism and how this adds to the church's worship experience. That the designer is a woman was a pleasant surprise. Our tour lasted about 1 1/2 hours, but it seems much shorter, as the meaning of lighting, design lines, and color were explained. There... More

Boston Avenue Methodist Church is one the oldest Tulsa landmarks still in existence in downtown Tulsa and renouned for its striking Gothic architecture. The church stretches itself out along a full city block with dormers (and gargoyles) competing with comtemporary structures for the downtown landscape. Boston Avenue Methodist Churh is a member of the Council of Churches and Ministers commemorating... More

The architecture is legendary, but the warmth inside is the draw. Look for welcoming faces, lots of classes and interests, and a downtown church that does good in downtown!

Oh, my, what a beautiful structure and magnificent house of worship! I have attended worship services, weddings and funerals at Boston Avenue. If you like, after worship, someone will take you on a tour of the beautiful facilities. If you haven't visited, you have missed a real Tulsa Treasure.

19,16, 10 yo and two adults LOVED this. We were the only ones in the building save the janitor…the prayer chapel is beautiful, the architecture outside is something to marvel and gawk at, the mosaic tile art inside the building, the stained glass, the lighting fixtures, the doors, the ceiling in the sanctuary…the sanctuary itself….we truly ALL were amazed.

Boston Methodist church is a very beautiful building inside and outside! The Church staff were friendly and the church service was a bible based service ! The whole building was clean and kept in a regal manner befitting that type of a building!
