Potsdam United Methodist Church

Welcome to the Potsdam United Methodist Church


The Potsdam United Methodist Church building is closed until further notice. All Church services, meetings, Bible studies, and small groups are also canceled until further notice. When it is safe for us to gather together once again, we will do so joyously.

Recorded services are available beginning at 10 am each Sunday.

The Potsdam United Methodist Church is an open, affirming, fully inclusive safe church, and we welcome everyone to participate fully in congregational life. All persons are welcome and celebrated here regardless of: gender, culture, nationality, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity, economic circumstance, age, physical and mental ability, marital status or family structure.

We believe it is incompatible with Christian teaching to discriminate against anyone. The Gospel of Jesus Christ teaches us that all people are welcome and a part of the family of God and that our greatest mission is to love one another. Loving one another, without exception, is a requirement of living a Christian life.

Though we recognize that there remain differences of opinion among us, especially with regard to sexuality, we at the Potsdam United Methodist Church, as a Reconciling and Welcoming Congregation, believe in open minds, open hearts, and open doors.

As members of the "Reconciling Ministries Network", we commit ourselves to a witness of reconciliation and a dedication to justice for all persons.

You Are Welcome Here

Whether you're from around the corner or around the world - you are welcome here.

Whether you sing beautifully or can't carry a tune in a bucket - you are welcome here.

Whether you've been a lifelong Methodist, come from another faith tradition - or can't seem to figure out what you believe - you are welcome here.

Whether you are straight, or a member of the LGBTQ+ community - you are welcome here.

If you're a baby, a toddler, a kid, in high school or in college, a single parent or just plain single (or single again), a family of two or a family of twelve, or a senior citizen - you are welcome here.

Our Doors Are Open

We invite you to come with an open heart and an open mind:

  • to join in the beloved community of Jesus Christ
  • to grow in faith, discovering a world larger than ourselves among friends
  • to receive the love and support of caring friends, and
  • to serve in hope for a brighter future
