Since 1909, First UMC Odem has sought to bring the love of Christ to the Community of Odem and the surrounding areas.

Odem is a small town, but the issues are the same. No matter where you go, there are people who need to hear the Good News, that God loves them. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him will not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16).

We believe that God has called us to Odem. While we know there are many different Denominations and styles of worship, we believe we are called to a specific task of ministering to the least, the last, and the lost. We believe the Scriptures tell us to Love God and Love Others, and in everything we do, we hope this shows. That we not only Love God because he first loved us, but that we are called to love our neighbors...all of them!

We hope that you know that we are Christ Followers by the way we love, and we hope that you will come to know Jesus Christ through us.

If you already have a relationship with God...we praise God! We hope that if you are looking for a place to worship and minister to a growing rural area, you will become a part of our family.
