WHAT IS THE UMC’S VIEW OF HALLOWEEN?
For many, Halloween means costumes, trick-or-treating and big parties. Is there a different way to look at this holiday and how we celebrate it as a church? Ask The UMC explores the historic roots of Halloween, or All Hallows Eve, and how United Methodists might take the opportunity to give back and proclaim our hope for a new creation.

SAYING ‘I APPRECIATE YOU’ TO PASTORS

ADVENT STUDIES FOR 2022
The past few years have been full of anxiety and uncertainty. Yet, the Spirit is still calling us to trust and experience God’s goodness and peace.
