About FUMC Claremore Church
A Greeting from Pastor Ray Crawford
I am pleased that you chose to visit our web site! This site contains information concerning one of the finest churches in Oklahoma. Come and be our guest whenever you’re ready. I think I speak for the entire congregation when I say that being a part of First United Methodist in Claremore is one of the real joys of our lives. We journey through life together. We share our joys and our sorrows. We share together in serving the Lord and in the special bond experienced by those who know Christ. It is a particular thrill for us to share the joy of the Lord with others.
Our mission statement here at First United Methodist is pretty simple, “Making Disciples for Jesus Christ.” We believe that God is calling everyone to share in his love and grace. Our church encourages everyone to respond to what God is doing in their life. Our goal is to grow together into fully committed followers of Jesus Christ. Church life is full of opportunities for worship, spiritual growth, fellowship, and mission. From small children to senior adults, everyone is valued.
Allow me to cordially invite you to be an active participant in our church! Come and give thanks to God for the gift of life. Come and explore the Christian life and the teachings of scripture. Come and find a place to express the faith within your heart. Sing in the choir or join one of our cross-cultural mission teams. Experience God’s presence and enjoy the support of God’s people. Be a friend and find a friend.
Welcome. May you know God’s richest blessing in your life.
Striving To Be Faithful,
Dr. Ray Crawford, Jr.
