If you are looking for a welcoming community of fellow seekers, Hope Unitarian Church is a progressive religious community in south Tulsa. We are nestled in an oasis of nature atop the highest point in the city at 84th and Sheridan. We invite all ages to join us on Sunday mornings and for any of the activities we have on our calendar.

We walk diverse paths to find meaning and purpose, united by our belief in the worth and dignity of all. We accept the obligation to express our faith through acts of justice and compassion. Join us as we create a lively community seeking truth in love while being true to our name, Hope!

We would love to meet you.

Our Covenant
Love is the spirit of this church, and service is its law; this is our great covenant: to dwell together in peace, to seek the truth in love, and to help one another.    
James Vila Blake, 1894

October's Theme: Reason

"No Hidden Secrets"
By Kenneth Patton

If there are any secrets in the world, they are not hidden.
They are everywhere.
If there is any reason why the universe is,
Why it is the kind of universe it is,
Why there is this strange eruption of life,
That reason can be found anywhere,
As soon in sand as in a galaxy,
As loud in a leaf-tip as in a forest.

This October’s theme can refer to two distinct ideas. Reason can mean mental powers for logically forming conclusions. Reason also can refer to the cause of an event. Both definitions have starring roles in our Unitarian Universalist tradition. We have been applying “the unrestricted use of reason in religion, rather than reliance upon external authority of past tradition” since the 1600’s. >>Read More
