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.
Early worship services are Sundays at 8:30 AM.
Services are held in the Chapel in the Woods, weather permitting. During inclement weather, services are held inside the church.

The war in Ukraine and the impact of severe weather events such as extreme heat, drought and flooding has dramatically increased the number of hungry people in the world. The funds we raise this year ensure Church World Service (CWS) can continue responding to the growing needs around the world. One-quarter of all funds will be directed to the Anchor Food Pantry and Thrift Store in Castleton. Three-quarters of the funds help support the work of CWS and its partners for hunger relief and development projects in the U.S and around the world.
Visit Castleton CROP Hunger Walk to register to walk or make a donation.
