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


February's Theme: Generosity

We explore generosity as a human trait as well as a theological lens for our lives in a variety of ways this month. It will be the focus of our service on February 7. Hope’s children and youth will look at Generosity in their classes and playing. >>Read More


Child Dedication
Sunday, February 7, 11:00 am

In the 11:00 am service, Hope Unitarian Church will have our child dedication ceremony for infants and children. With a rose as its symbol of a life unfolding, it is a blessing for the new life of the child, an expression of parent or parents’ hopes for the child(ren) and a promise by the whole congregation to support and nurture the child(ren). If you wish to have your family participate in this ceremony, please contact our Program Director for Children & Youth, Susan Spooner. Grandparents and extended family are welcome to join with you too in the happy occasion.

Movie Night
Tuesday, February 9, 7:00 pm

The Help is set in Jackson, Mississippi in 1963. The story revolves around Eugenia "Skeeter" Phelan, a young white woman, who goes home after graduating from the University of Mississippi. Skeeter discovers that Constantine, the black maid who was a large part of her life growing up, has quit. As she looks for the reasons why Constantine quit, Skeeter begins to explore the relationships between white families and their black help.

The Help was nominated for three Oscars, and Octavia Spencer won for Best Supporting Actress. This is poignant movie about race in America.

Come and join us for free popcorn, soft drinks and a good discussion before and after the movie.

If you need child care contact, Susan Spooner, susan@hopeuu.org. 48 advance hours notice required.

- Minister's Newsletter

Right after our children were born, years ago, my husband Joe and I had our first wills drawn. We signed them on my birthday. At the time, I joked it was a dreadful birthday present. As the years move forward I now see it as a great gift. We looked into our future knowing we are mortal. We wanted to make sure we had made provisions for each other and for our children. >>Read More
