From the desk of Bishop Mark J. Webb

May God's healing presence be known in Oregon

Once again, our hearts break as we witness a senseless loss of life in the recent shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Ore. Please join me in praying for the families and friends of those whose lives were taken. Let us also pray for the college community that became a sight of indescribable violence.
As people of God, may we continue to lift our voices and seek ways to bring an end to all acts of violence, including gun violence. Through our words and actions may we also support the mental health care that is needed by those who find themselves in dark and desperate places.
As the church of Jesus Christ, we know the One who is the hope of the world, the One who meets all where they are, and the One who promises to meet the deepest needs of the heart. Let us continue to be bold in offering the good news of Jesus Christ for the world around us.
May God's healing presence be known. May God's transforming power be realized in us and in our world.


Welcome and thanks for visiting!

The Cornerstone District of the United Methodist Church is located in the Southwest corner of New York State. 

The District encompasses all of Chautauqua County, Cattaraugus County and part of Allegany County. There are 70 churches on the district.

The Cornerstone District is one of the twelve Districts in the Upper New York Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. Our resident Bishop is Mark J. Webb. 

Our Vision: To live the gospel of Jesus Christ and to be God’s love with our neighbors in all places.

Our Purpose: Growing in our relationship with God, Being the body of Christ within the world, and Living in accordance with the example of Jesus Christ by:

  • Engaging, equipping and empowering local churches to be in ministry with and to our Global Neighborhood;
  • Encouraging and developing leadership within the laity and clergy that is diverse yet united by our love for Christ; and
  • Building relationships with our neighbors, particularly with those who have been disenfranchised by mainstream society.

Please visit the Upper New York Conference website at www.unyumc.org.

We encourage you to explore our website to learn about our mission and ministries designed to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Grace and Peace,

Rev. Dr. Sherri Rood
