First United Methodist Church of Voorheesville is a
faith community in the Village of Voorheesville, New York.
The people of First United Methodist Church of Voorheesville (only 20 minutes from Albany in New York’s Capital Region) have been worshiping God, sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ, and in His name, serving others in our community and our world since circa 1815.
Beginning Sunday, October 18 we will hold worship in the Sanctuary for 20 people. In order to participate, contact the office to sign up. As with all meetings being held in the church, masks and social distancing are required.
Sunday morning worship sessions will still be held via Zoom at 11:00 am. Email Pastor Gary (Pastor@fumcv.org) for the link to join. We are offering both Zoom and a livestream on our Facebook page every Sunday (Voorheesville UMC) at 11:00 am.
Thinking about attending or joining a church? Newcomers visiting our church for the first time are presented with a coffee mug filled with information about our Church.
As United Methodists, we are part of a world-wide Christian ministry. To learn more about United Methodist history, beliefs, organizational structure and more, visit www.umc.org.

Our pastor is the Rev. Gary Kubitz. You may contact him at email@example.com or by calling the church at 518-765-2895. His current office hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9:30 am -1:00 pm, and Fridays by appointment.
Our church building is located in the center of the Village of Voorheesville, near the intersection of Maple Avenue, Voorheesville Avenue and Stonington Hill Road.
While added to over the years, the sanctuary at front is the original house of worship built about a mile away on Altamont Road. When the location of the railroad moved the center of activity, the members of the church dismantled the building in 1890 and moved it to its current location.
