We need YOU to make our church photo directory complete.
To celebrate our church family and strengthen the bond within our congregation, we are producing a new fellowship pictorial directory, our church family album.
Lifetouch is providing the directory at no cost to our church. Every family photographed receives a complimentary directory and an 8 x 10 portrait! You can sign up at the church narthex on Sunday mornings for the next few weeks or sign up right now online at our church web site.
OUR PHOTO DATES:
● Tuesday, August 5, 2014
● Tuesday through Saturday,
September 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 2014
There is no sitting fee and you will have the opportunity to purchase your favorite, if you wish, from a variety of poses taken. You can invite your extended family with everyone together by adding more time spots for each family unit. Each unit will be photographed and receive their own complimentary 8 x 10 portrait.
Watch for your Portrait Sitting Guide with tips on how to prepare for your one-hour session during which time you will check-in, be photographed and select your portraits. You will receive a copy of the price sheet at sign-up to give you plenty of time to consider any more additional portraits and not feel under pressure when you come.
We are looking forward to seeing you in our directory!

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 $5 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 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 share in the meal time.
Here are the dates for the Fall Session of Monday Night Lights:
Sept 8: Info night

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.
