Welcome to
 First United Methodist Church
of Ponchatoula
We welcome ALL!


The Longest Night sometimes called a Blue Christmas service, is one that varies among communities and cultures. In our gathering, we will celebrate the first official day of winter acknowledging that longer days and sunshine are also headed our way. From darkness, we move to a place of light and this can become a turning point, a place to move in a new direction and a new beginning. Join us as we celebrate The Longest Night on Wednesday, December 21 at 6 p.m. All are welcome.



During Advent, we celebrate Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love. We anticipate the coming of the Christ Child, Emmanuel, God with us. Come with family and friends and join us in this great time of celebration on Christmas Eve, at 6 p.m. as we light candles, sing and usher in the hope of the world.
