Denominational Connections

The First United Methodist Church of Oakhurst is part of the Greater New Jersey Area Conference ( of the United Methodist Church. This means that we work together with other United Methodist Churches all over the state to reach out to the people of New Jersey with love and compassion and with the good news of Jesus Christ.

As part of the United Methodist denomination we are also connected in ministry all over the world as United Methodists literally span the globe working on behalf of humanity and to the glory of God.  Through this connectional ministry we are able to combine our resources and respond to the needs of individual communities with all the resources of the larger church body.
