You are not alone! Jesus is Immanuel (God-with-us) and he remains with us always. "They will call him Immanuel” (which means 'God with us')" (Matthew 1:23). "And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age" (Matthew 28:20).

At First United Methodist Church, we want to know God and be followers of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. We seek to represent Jesus in our life together and in our lives as individuals. First UMC is one church with two campuses. At Durant, we offer worship at 10:00 on Sundays, with Sunday School at 9:00. Worship at the Caddo campus is at 11:00, with Sunday School at 10:00. We invite you to join us.

  • Powerful Tools for Caregivers

    Free Wednesday Class at 10am starting May 17th

    Powerful Tools for Caregivers is a class series designed to help family caregivers take better care of themselves while caring for a family member or friend. In the six weekly classes, caregivers develop a wealth of self-care tools to reduce stressors, change negative self-talk, communicate their needs to family members and healthcare or service providers, effectively communicate in challenging situations, deal with difficult feelings, and make tough caregiving decisions.

  • A Matter of Balance Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1PM

    Many Older Adults experience a fear of falling. Individuals who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. A Matter of Balance includes eight two-hour sessions led by a trained facilitator.

    To register for classes or for more information please call Cindy Ruhl at 434-962-4405 or email her at cynthia-ruhl@ouhsc.edu
