John 10:7, 9-10 - “Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
Christmas Eve Candlelight/Communion Service
Jesus was the "Child of Promise" for so many reasons and we would like for you and your family to join us for this meaningful celebration of the Christmas season. The service will begin at 7:00pm and will be in our church sanctuary. Bring your family, neighbors and friends as we give praise to God for the Messiah!
In 1874, the Methodist Church of Smith Paul's Valley within the Chickasaw Nation was formed and since that time the members of this church have been reaching out to the community in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! The First United Methodist Church of Pauls Valley is a congregation that seeks to live out God's presence in the world around us and constantly strives to be vessels of the redeeming power of our Heavenly Father's grace! There is something for everyone here at PVFUMC! More information about the ministries and opportunities to serve are found elsewhere on this site. Please take the time to look us over and then come join us for Sunday School and/or Worship. I think you will feel right at home! Hope to see you soon!
