ABOUT FUMC OF NATCHITOCHES 

Discover Freedom Through Christ

Founded in the 1870s, we have a long, rich history here in Natchitoches. And we can honestly say we've stood the test of time after surviving two moves and the burning of the sanctuary. But we're making history every day, and we invite you to be a part of our modern story.

OUR MISSION


The mission of The United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
