open hearts, open minds, open doors




Welcome to the First United Methodist Church of Fairview, Oklahoma. We have been helping to build the Kingdom of God for over 100 years and we look forward to having you join us. We hope you feel very much at home.

Our site is still under construction, so please be patient as our volunteers work to get it completed. Thank you.




I am glad you have visited our church and invite you to take a closer look.

Most importantly, you will find God is here. You can come to know Him here. Jesus said, “And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” [John 17:2.] Augustine said, “our hearts are restless until they find rest in God.” He was right. We are made in the image of God and cannot be really happy until we are at rest in Him. I hope at our church your aching heart can find rest in God.

It may give you comfort to know you will not be alone. You will find real people here living real lives. You will meet others who also have begun life restless and have come to find rest in God. At Fairview 1st UMC you will find fellowship. We are all part of the family of God and we would be thrilled to have you join us.

In short, you will find us to be a Christ-centered, caring community of individuals who are excited about having the opportunity to extend to you the same love, hope and joy we have received from the Lord. I extend to you a invitation to join us any Sunday, at 10:00, as we come together to draw near to God through prayer, thoughtful contemporary songs, traditional hymns and relevant messages from God’s word. After worship, we linger over refreshments, so please take a moment to get to know us better.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Rich Redinger
