Update your Find-A-Church profile

Developed by United Methodist Communications, Find-A-Church is the official online directory of United Methodist churches in the United States. It is one of the most visited sections of UMC.org, averaging more than 1,000 page views a day and helps you to connect with busy people in your community on their terms, on their time, and in their comfort zone. It also serves as a companion to your church’s existing website — giving you twice the local visibility online.

Why you should update your profile

You’ll achieve the best results from your Find-A-Church profile when you update your church’s information. Here are four reasons why:

  • An updated profile is more relevant to your visitors’ needs.
  • You can link to your Facebook page, Twitter feed, Instagram and Flickr accounts.
  • Visitors can search activities through the online calendar.
  • As worship schedules change (Christmas, Easter, etc.), you can edit as needed.
