Nashville, Tenn.: Spiritual seekers can Rethink Church more easily through the newly redesigned website at

The new site leads visitors through the concept of rethinking church and helps them to find opportunities to get involved both virtually and in real life.

United Methodist Communications partnered with FiveStone to redesign the media-rich site that includes short stories, photo galleries and videos that demonstrate what it means to Rethink Church through the lens of eight focus areas. These focus areas are basic needs, creation care, education, humanitarian relief, malaria, spirituality, vocation and workers’ rights.

Tied strongly to the United Methodist tagline “Open hearts, Open minds, Open doors,” the new site also shows how the people of The United Methodist Church are active, offer hope and are a tangible presence of Christ in the world.
