Reconciling Statement

We, the friends and members of the Havre de Grace United Methodist Church (HdGUMC), acknowledge that in the history of the United Methodist Church (UMC) people have been condemned and excluded from full participation in the Church based on race, nationality, culture, gender, economic status, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity. While some progress has been made for many of these groups, condemnation of the LGBTQ+ community, or tolerance of such, through silence still stands. As a congregation that believes everyone is a child of God, we pledge ourselves to reconcile and seek to eliminate all intolerance by The UMC directed towards anyone, especially members of the LGBTQ+ community. Furthermore, we declare ourselves to be an open and affirming congregation, welcoming into the full life and ministry of the HdGUMC people of all aforementioned groups. As a reconciling congregation, we commit to strive to become a community of faith and spirit that works towards unconditional inclusion, offering safety, justice, equality, healing, and wholeness of life for all people.




The Havre de Grace United Methodist Church, a congregation with a proud history and a bright future, invites you to worship and fellowship with us. Our beautiful facility, located at the intersection of Union and Congress Avenues in historic Havre de Grace, has served as a community cornerstone of faith for more than 100 years.


In-person worship continues, and masks are optional, but social distancing is still possible. We also livestream our services on our Facebook page every Sunday at 11:00 AM. If you aren't able to tune in, don't worry - the recorded sermon will also be uploaded on our YouTube channel every Sunday afternoon in addition to the livestream.
