​First United Methodist Church of Houma 

What Do We Teach?

We use both the Old Testament and the Gospels as the foundation for our faith and the inspiration for our daily lives. We put those teachings into practice at home and at work.

What Are Our Core Values?

Just as Jesus said in the Beatitudes, blessed are the poor and the hungry. Our mission is not just to love one another, but to make sure we spread the love of the Gospels everywhere.

Shine in the love of God's grace, every day.

At First United Methodist Church of Houma, it's our mission to help you explore your relationship with God and improve those meaningful relationships in your family life. Join us each Sunday and experience the warmth of faith and the strength of our community. Our Mission Statement at FUMC, Houma, LA:

The Mission of The United Methodist Church: 
"To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world!"
