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, and 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 providing 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 course, nor do you have to go to 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 Spring, including registration (8 class sessions).

|Every Fall marks the start of the church program and the resumption of greatly missed social opportunities. Our Annual Apple Picking Outing has traditionally been a fun and meaningful event, mostly enjoyed by our Youth Group and their families. The little-known secret is that it is a fun multigenerational event where the youth safely head off on their own adventures as those over 20 meander the fields in search of apples not only to bring home but to snack on as we share conversation and sun. Then there is the obligatory stop by the Farm Store for Apple Cider donuts or whatever else suits our fancy!|
Here are the details:

If you are looking for a good safe outdoor event to break the COVID-19 monotony, well, consider yourself invited! Jenn Jackson and the Blessed Connections team are also working on an October outdoor excursion, so stay tuned as UMCHP puts delta and mu blues on the run!

As of March 7, 2021, we have resumed regular Sunday in-person worship. As of June 6, 2021, we have relaxed and enforced COVID-19 protocol areas in the Sanctuary for the comfort and acceptance of all. If you are vaccinated, no one will ask to see proof, you may resume worship without restriction. If you are not vaccinated, have a medical reason that requires COVID-19 precautions, or just want to play it safe, we have your back.

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."
