You're Invited

to our 125th Anniversary Celebration!

Friends and Relatives of First United Methodist Church of Nowata,

As of this year, the Methodists have been in ministry in the community of Nowata for 125 years. In that time, our church community has gone through three buildings, two parsonages, 54 pastors, and countless ministries.

Not all churches are so blessed to have as long and storied a history as our fine church. Not all find themselves as robust as ours is in such a small, rural environment. Our success is due to God’s providence, our faithfulness, and the quality of discipleship that we have seen for many decades.

On December 3, 2017, the First United Methodist Church of Nowata will be hosting a 125th Anniversary Celebration. Members, constituents, and friends of the church are encouraged to arrive before worship to visit in our fellowship hall and to look through our historical records together. Worship will begin at 11:00am. We are happy to host our bishop, Rev. Jimmy Nunn, and our superintendent, Rev. Emery Mason, along with several former clergy. After worship concludes, everyone is invited to stay for a lunch provided by the church.

It is our hope that you, along with many others who have been touched by the longstanding ministry of our church, might be in attendance that day. Please mark the date on your calendar and plan to come worship with us. In the meantime, please pray for this church, that we can be made worthy to serve God and our community for another 125 years.

If you would like to RSVP to this special event, please do so either in writing, or find the church’s event on Facebook. If you have questions about this service or how it is that you might be a part of this special day, I invite you to contact me personally.


Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ!


Nowata United Methodist Church is a body of believers belonging to the United Methodist Church in the Oklahoma Annual Conference. We are located in downtown Nowata, Oklahoma, where we seek to engage our community through a variety of ministries to reach outside our doors, by worshipping together, and by teaching adults and children how to talk about their faith.
