#BeUMC

#BeUMC honors the core values that connect the people of The United Methodist Church. No matter the challenges we face, God is with us, and we continue to have opportunities to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world!

The campaign calls us to embrace our Wesleyan heritage and envision a promising future. Every day offers a chance to live into our mission and to strive to #BeUMC — to be the church our communities so desperately need.

This grassroots effort, built upon powerful stories of congregations and people living their faith, celebrates what draws us to The United Methodist Church and what we aspire to be.

 

What does being United Methodist mean to you?
Why do you choose to #BeUMC?
 

The Bishops' Message

The #BeUMC campaign is consistent with our United Methodist Bishops’ “A Narrative for the Continuing United Methodist Church,” adopted in November 2021. Together we share our excitement, enthusiasm and hopes for the future of The United Methodist Church.
