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 72 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.
