“An art deco building never to be forgotten.”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Visit this beautiful building and discover a warm congregation in the heart of Tulsa. History abounds here in the 1929 structure - take a tour after services on Sunday and discover more of this magnigicant treasure.

“Rare example of Art Deco Ecclesiastical Architecture”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

With a prominent site on a bend in Boston road just south of downtown, the Boston Avenue Methodist Church tower cannot be missed. Although the exterior proportions are a little off-putting, the interior is a unique example of church architecture from the period. The sanctuary, and especially he repeating pattern stained glass windows are not to be missed on any visit to Tulsa.

“Art Deco Church”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Boston Avenue is a beautiful example of Art Deco in a church. The architecture is superb. I haven't been to a service in years but the sanctuary is something to see.

“A skyscraper Church”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

This art deco church is a massive structure. It dominates the area. The exterior is art deco from the 1920's. The interior was mainly a rose colored experience for the carpets and walls. There is a feeling of praying hands outline in the windows and door frames which have an inverted V shape at the top of each window or door. The main church sanctuary area was light and airy. It is a beautiful building, both inside and out, and worth a stop on travels to Tulsa.

“Serene & Wonderful!”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

The architecture of the outside AND inside of this church are just simply NOT to be missed! We were amazed! We weren't able to access entry via the front doors, so went around to the South doors where the administration offices are, and were told that we had permission to self-tour the church. The awesome organist was practicing, so the sounds of music coming through the awesome pipes in the sanctuary were just amazingly beautiful! Do NOT miss this attraction if visiting Tulsa! P.S. We also left a small donation.....not necessary, but good cause!
