The United Church of Phelps is a union of two historic Churches existing in the village of Phelps, New York since the 1850’s. The United Methodist Church and The Presbyterian Church.
In the 1970’s some of the membership of each Church met and began to talk of coming together as one strong community Church. The Church would continue their ties to the two denominations but they would pool their resources in order to meet the needs of the people in the village and people in the world.
In 1974 The United Church of Phelps was born. Thirty-five years later this toddler has grown into a happy well- adjusted adult!
Our mission statement tells our story: “The United Church of Phelps reaches out and welcomes all people so they may worship God passionately, become people of prayer, develop a deep faith, demonstrate faith through service, and share their faith.”
