Put Your Beliefs Into Action

How can we rethink church as an out-of-building 365 days-a-year experience? How can we help others to find a spiritual journey to call their own? By showing that there isn't just one door into the church, but thousands of doors through which a person can become engaged -- many of them non-traditional.

Rethink Church provides United Methodist Churches with ideas, resources, and support in finding new ways to show kindness, acceptance, and hospitality to guests and members alike.

Find out how your church can show the local community "Open hearts, Open minds, and Open doors." Take a look at the videos, FAQ, and resources available, and start rethinking church now.
