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.
