What makes you proud to #BeUMC?

Posted: April 27 2022 at 03:04 PM

With words of disunity, disaffiliation, and division in the news, let’s use this time as an opportunity to share why you are proud to be United Methodist and why we are better together. United Methodist Communications has launched the #BeUMC campaign with key themes intended to highlight what unites us as United Methodists and what we are working towards, together.

The UMC is founded on a Wesleyan theology of grace, anchored in Scripture and based in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ and the continuing movement of the Holy Spirit.
