Welcome to our website!
First United Methodist Church is a reconciling congregation, dedicated to full inclusivity in the United Methodist Church and the universal Church. We welcome all of God's children without regard to race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, economic status or any of the labels the world seeks to use. We seek to be a place where all people feel embraced and can explore their faith and beliefs.
First UMC of Oneonta is a safe place to ask questions, express doubt, and share your faith. We see faith as a journey that we undertake together, supporting one another in our ups, our downs, and everything in between. Our mission is to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with our God (Micah 6:8).
Please let us know if there is anything we can do to welcome you and provide a safe space for you to worship, learn, pray, grow, serve, and flourish. All are welcome here!
