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

What's the Big Idea?

If you are new to Tulsa or to Hope, you will get an overview of our church and its values. If you are a long-time member, this month is the opportunity to round out missing information and to go more deeply into our fundamental principles.

The Big Ideas we will explore together this August are all the ways we value freedom--free pulpit, free pew, free thinking, free church, plus our free and responsible search for truth and meaning. Join us!
