About Us

Open Hearts

Looking for meaning and purpose. Connect with others.. we can always do more together than on our own; healing the earth, feeding the hungry, bringing justice to those unjustly treated.

Open Minds

It's okay to doubt. Grow your faith with us through questioning, searching, worship, prayer and positive relationships.

Open Doors

Come as you are. All, and that means all, are welcome. Your life and spiritual journey is important to us.


“First United Methodist Church of East Greenbush is called to the ministry of reconciliation.

We accept the diversity of our neighborhood and the world as a gift. We celebrate our diversity of faith history, physical and mental ability, race, ethnic background, sexual orientation, marital status, gender, gender identity, age, economic status, and education.

We recognize that there are differences among us, and believe that we can love even though we may not think alike. We embrace our differences and journey together in faith toward greater understanding and mutual respect.  We proclaim this statement to welcome all who have known the pain of exclusion or discrimination in the church and society. We welcome full inclusion of all people in the life and ministries of the First United Methodist Church of East Greenbush. 

We invite all people to join us in our faith journey toward greater love, understanding and mutual respect.
