The new UMC.org is here!
Official United Methodist website redesigned for easy use

Nashville, Tenn.: The people of The United Methodist Church have a newly redesigned digital home, UMC.org. The denomination’s website not only has a fresh look, it’s also more functional.

United Methodist Communications partnered with Paramore | the digital agency to design and implement a site focused on ease of use. With improved search capabilities and better organization, finding information and staying informed is simpler than ever. It’s also more visual, mobile-friendly and easier to connect with others through our social channels.

UMC.org is the official online ministry of The United Methodist Church. Since its inception in 1995, the website has served to connect visitors, members, local churches, conferences and agencies with one another and with the larger world. The site is a portal for audiences to learn more about any part of the church, as well as a platform to share news and information about our mission and ministries all over the world. More than 350,000 people visit UMC.org. each month.

The brand new UMC.org will continue to provide up-to-date news from around the globe, including exclusive stories, thought-provoking commentaries and award-winning photos. However, visitors will find more resources and a stronger focus on improving their spiritual lives . Visitors can also learn about all things United Methodist: our history, beliefs, missions, structure and happenings in churches around the world.

United Methodist Communications invites you to visit the site with a virtual web warming party to celebrate the launch and to pass the invitation along to other.  A virtual media kit provides resources that make it easy for you to share, including articles for the church bulletin and social media posts to help spread the news.
