Special Message from United Methodist Communications


We'll meet you at the http://www.umc.org/ web warming party today.

We want to welcome you to the new digital home of the people of The United Methodist Church. http://www.umc.org/, the denomination's official website, has gotten a makeover!

Please join us today when we launch the redesigned http://www.umc.org/ with a virtual web-warming party. Yes, the meet and greet will be virtual, but the celebration is the real thing.

Who are we? What do we believe? How do we serve? What's going on? The newhttp://www.umc.org/ makes finding information and staying in-the-know more user-friendly with improved search capabilities -- and it's mobile friendly too!

http://www.umc.org/ still has all the award-winning stories and photos you're used to seeing, but now it will be more about your own spiritual journey - a place to help you navigate faith, giving, life issues and what it means to be a United Methodist.

It's a party so we want you to make some noise. We're providing graphics for you to share. Pass along this link to our virtual media kit so others have the tools to spread the news.

We'll quench your thirst for all things United Methodist, but you'll have to bring the chips and dip!

In fun and with gratitude,
The UMC.org Team
United Methodist Communications
