For over the last decade on most Monday evenings during the Fall and Spring "UMCHP" offers two hours of eating and study. We start with a prepared meal, you don't have to cook, at 6:00 PM. The cost of the meal is usually around $6 a person and is collected by "free will" offering baskets at each table. Give what you can to help us to keep offering this wonderful time of fellowship.
At 6:45 PM everyone helps to clean up the dining room.
At 7:00 PM classes start and run for about an hour. You do not have to come to the meal to take a class, nor do you have to take a class to share in the meal time, come either or both.
Here are the dates for the next session of Monday Night Lights:
We will be offering 9 nights in the Fall, including registration (8 class sessions).
Monday, September 11, 2017 - Information Night
Monday, November 27, 2017 - Last Class
October 9, 2017 - Columbus Day
November 6, 2017 - Election Day
November 27th END OF SEMESTER
Remember that starting on the third week in June every year we only have one service.
This year that will be on June 18, 2017:
֎ Blended: 9:30 AM
Regular worship hours resume on TBA.
We go to Linwood Spiritual Center in Rhinebeck on Sunday, September 24, 2017, for our Annual Outdoor Service and Church Picnic.
Linwood has requested that we carpool as much as possible due to limited parking on that day.
The end of our "Monday Night Light" semester and after the Memorial Day weekend traditionally starts our "Monday Night Potluck and Games" gathering. It is always a challenge finding folks willing to coordinate this program.
Really all one needs to do is:
- Get the key from the office during the week or Sunday Before.
- Open the front door to the education building.
- Make sure the building is locked before you go home.
- Drop the key in the deposit slot of the "Finance Office."
Setup and coffee are usually a community thing that everyone lends a hand to accomplish.
Here are the dates we need covered. Use the form below or email the church office to sign up. Please use this web page to determine if there will be a potluck for a particular night. If there is no name next to the date, we don't have anyone to open up for the night and so will not be having the pot luck.

Welcome to the website of the United Methodist Church of Hyde Park, 1 Church Street, Hyde Park, NY 12538.
We are an active and responsive part of the greater Hyde Park community, reaching out and welcoming in the name of Jesus Christ. We are a missional church whose primary goal is to form dedicated Christians who embody Jesus' world view not only when gathered on Sunday, but in every facet of our lives. To this end we sow seeds of care and hope in our world, seeking to shore up the blessings of our community and perfect it in the loving nature of our faith.
We have programs aimed at learning, fellowship, discipleship, missions, you name it, but these are simply a means of witnessing to a greater love and sacrificial commitment that we have to one another and our world. This love and commitment cannot be held behind doors, while it can be celebrated there. This love and commitment welcomes in, but goes out to meet the wanderer on the roadside.
We would love to welcome you to spend some time getting to know us. You can do that as easily as looking over and plumbing the depths of this website. But really knowing us is helping us to both celebrate and encourage the greater Hyde Park community through the outreach we have. You are always welcome to come worship with us at any of our three Sunday morning services, which are joy filled Holy Spirit led encounters with a living and vital God.
Blessing to you on your journey, and know that God loves you so much that He died to prove it.
Our Mission Statement:
"Under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, we are a worshiping community, seeking the will of God, teaching the word of God, and sharing the love of God."
