    United Methodists of Upper New YorkLiving the Gospel. Being God's Love.


    Together: #BeUMC Resources

    We each made a choice to be United Methodist. Together we are connected with others and called to share God’s love and put our beliefs into action. As United Methodists, we are people who do no harm, do good, attend to the ordinances of God, and for whom the world is our parish. No matter the challenges, God is with us. #BeUMC honors the core values that connect the people of The United Methodist Church. Click here to share your stories on why you are United Methodist.
