My adopted hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma has so many churches you would be hard pressed to list them all here. But, I'll post some pics of the Boston Avenue Methodist Church, which is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Bingo! It was finished in 1929.

From wikipedia "Boston Avenue Methodist Church is considered to be one of the finest examples of ecclesiastical Art Deco architecture in the United States, and has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1999."
