This Fall we will be using John Ortberg's book All the Places To Go…How Will You Know? as a basis for a sermon series and Bible study. Here is the publisher's description of the book:
Very rarely in the Bible does God command someone to “Stay.” He opens a door, and then he invites us to walk through it—into the unknown. And how we choose to respond will ultimately determine the life we will lead and the person we will become. In fact, to fail to embrace the open door is to miss the work God has made for us to do.
In All the Places to Go…How Will You Know?, bestselling author John Ortberg opens our eyes to the countless doors God places before us every day, teaches us how to recognize them, and gives us the encouragement to step out in faith and embrace all of the extraordinary opportunities that await.So go ahead—walk through that door. You just might do something that lasts for eternity.
The series will start on October 2, 2016 and will take us right through to Advent. There will be links to videos for some weeks available at RightNow Media. I will send out posts to everyone a week before the relevant sessions.

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 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 next session of Monday Night Lights:
September 12th: Info night
September 12th - November 14th

We go to Linwood Spiritual Center in Rhinebeck on September 25, 2016 for our Annual Outdoor Service and Church Picnic.
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."
