Historic Vernon AME Church
About Historic Vernon
Historic Vernon African Methodist Episcopal Church was founded in 1905 and the basement of the current edifice was built in 1919. During the worst race massacre in American history, the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921, the superstructure, parsonage, and sanctuary still under-construction were destroyed but the basement remained as a symbol of God's persevering power. The congregation completed the current sanctuary in 1925. In fact, Vernon AME Church is the only intact, standing black-owned structure that remains from the Historic Black Wall Street era.
Worship With Us
Join us each Sunday in-person at 10am for a multi-generational worship experience. Our services provide an interactive opportunity for people of all backgrounds and experiences to participate in worship through scriptures, songs, and sermons. As a church community, we focus on learning God's biblical principles, spreading the good news of Jesus Christ, and enhancing the social development and wellbeing of all people. We also offer a discussion based, interactive adult class at 8:30am every Sunday morning.
