First United Methodist Church
of East Greenbush


We recognize that people come through our doors for many reasons. Some may come with family or friends, others are new to the community and are looking for a church home; and some may be seeking comfort and guidance during a time of trouble or concern.

Whatever brought you to us, we are thankful and we want you to know that our hearts, our minds and our doors are always open and that all are welcome in God’s house.

June Storytelling Night

On June 5 at 7:00 p.m. we welcome Home Earth Alliance (HEA ) co-founder Pam Skripak.

Pam will share a bit about her organization’s work, as well as just some of the items from her PowerPoint “50 Things You Can Do Tomorrow to Help Heal the Earth” presentation. 

Founded in August 2022, Home Earth Alliance’s mission is to educate, inspire, and empower people to cultivate their homes and outdoor spaces to support biodiversity, mitigate climate change, and promote environmental justice. The presentation will be followed by a question and answer period. Refreshments will be served.

Home Earth Alliance

Our traditions, religions, histories, and biographies are compilations of stories told and received, handed down, edited, redacted, metaphorized, dreamed up. Storytelling Night is a monthly evening of food, fellowship, and storytelling. We gather monthly around the stories of people. And, we believe that each story – of our fears, of our hopes, of our lives, of our families, of our undoing, of our renaissance, of our redemption – can be inspiring to us and to others . . .
