Our Mission

The mission of the Dannemora United Methodist Church (UMC) is making God’s love real. Dannemora UMC is a community of people committed to Jesus Christ; empowered by the Holy Spirit; united in the love of God; and called to make that love real to others.

Core Values

(These values define who we are and how we participate in community together)

  • Christ-Centered:

    Focusing on the life, words, way, and Spirit of Jesus proclaimed in the New Testament.

  • Biblically rooted:

    Encouraging spiritually-alive, faithful study of the Bible using tools of devotion and scholarship that are appropriate to a diverse body of people.

  • Warm-hearted:

    A joyful, loving, laughing congregation that experiences the grace of God in Jesus Christ in personal, communal and positive ways.

  • Open-minded:

    A place where people search, think, question, and honestly express their growing experience of the faith in an accepting and affirming atmosphere.

  • Mission-directed:

    Continuing the strong sense of mission which is part of our identity, both in terms of mission to the community and mission to the world.

  • Connection-committed:

    As part of The United Methodist Church, we see ourselves as a supporter of the global ministries in which we share.

Our Vision

As we make God’s love real, the Holy Spirit will be:

  • Transforming lives
  • Creating Christian community
  • Healing the community and the world

Our Strategy

(These strategies are the ways that we move toward our vision and accomplish our mission)  The Dannemora UMC faith community is becoming a congregation of people who:

  • Invite people to experience the love of God and become disciples of Jesus Christ.
  • Equip disciples to be agents of God’s reconciling love in the world.
  • Care for one another in Christian community.
  • Send disciples as servants of Christ to participate in God’s transformation of the world.


As the Dannemora UMC makes God’s love real, lives from its core values, and becomes people who invite, equip, care and send, the Holy Spirit will fulfill our vision of transforming lives, creating Christian community, and healing the community and the world.
