UMC West – where spirituality and the arts connect

Located at 70b Beekman Ave. is an open space  to make connections  with new people as you explore Christian spirituality in a low key and comfortable environment. We exist to help connect all people with to the love of God for the transformation of  individuals and our community. We seek to offer a variety of ways for you to connect with new people, your inner self, and God, such as conversation, prayer, pastoral counseling, small group studies, art, and much more.

If you think church isn’t for you, we invite you to rethink it. At UMC West, you will find people who have been in church their whole lives, people who are new to the journey, and people who have been hurt by the church. No matter your past, your hurts, or your fears, you will find UMC West to be a place that welcomes you.  Wherever you find yourself, very ready or extremely hesitant to explore your spirituality we invite you to come connect with us.
