    About the logo

    The theme for this year's logo uses familiar imagery that helps convey God’s invitation for United Methodists of Upper New York to move forward with a renewed sense of identity and vision in Christ-centered missional unity, led by the Holy Spirit. The colors highlight our warmed-heart experience as United Methodists; the dove represents the Holy Spirit's guiding presence, and the italic font signifies movement – we are on the move with God.
