Thank you for taking the time to find out more about our community of faith. All of us here, at the Honeoye Falls United Methodist Church, feel  blessed that you were able to join us. The information contained in this flyer, as well as the other information in this Welcome packet provides you with just a glimpse of what we do as a church, and what’s important to us as Disciples of Jesus Christ. The genuine care that our community has for each other and our neighbors shines through in who we are and what we do.

Each of us, individually, and as the church, is on a journey of faith. God's Spirit is continually moving within our midst, and we actively listen to where God is leading and asking us to follow. It's our prayer that you'll find what God's plan is for you within our midst, and that you'll join with us on our journey as fellow Brothers and Sisters in and thru our Lord and Risen Savior, Jesus Christ.

Blessings & Shalom,

Pastor Mary

He is part of the team that selects appropriate music for all our church’s services in a music style known as blended. This includes Hymns and special music from contemporary to traditional.

He loves playing our Johnson and Son 1893 tracker action pipe organ and he oversees its maintenance so it remains a vital asset of our church and he plays our grand piano when our lead pianist, Gary Albright is out of town.
