Churches urged to celebrate UMC’s 50th

From April 22 through Heritage Sunday, May 20, the UMC will mark 50 years since its birth at the Uniting Conference in 1968. Churches are urged to celebrate, aided by available resources.


Help us celebrate your church’s 50+ milestone anniversary

To celebrate the UMC’s 50th anniversary, we want to feature some of our own historic churches for this year’s special Heritage Sunday—particularly churches that are celebrating century and half-century anniversaries this year: 50, 100, 150, 200 years and older. If your church is among these, please send us information, photos and videos about your history and your celebration plans (or highlights of any celebrations that have occurred already this year). Write to us at
