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.

Church Events

Change the World Month

Change the World is a movement that began several years ago. It was originally designed to get people out of their church pews and into their communities to spread the love of Jesus Christ to others (including our animal friends!) Even though we are in the midst of a global Pandemic and most churches are finding different ways to worship, we know that there is still much work to be done. We are pleased to announce that our eighth annual Change the World event will be extended this year to include the entire month of May, rather than just one day.
