Our Proclamation:
Open Hearts!  Open Minds!  Open Doors!....and we mean it!

Our welcome knows no boundaries, whether of age, racial or ethnic background, gender, sexual orientation or gender identity, economic or marital status, or physical or mental ability.  We welcome all to share in the ministry, fellowship, blessing and grace found in the church community.

Come and check us out for worship on Sunday morning at 10:00 am. where we blend formal and informal expressions of music, prayers, preaching, and sacrament.  Worship often begins with an opportunity to share personal joys or concerns for the day.  We celebrate God's unconditional love no matter who we are, where we are from, or what we've been up to.  The Children's Message and worship music are especially dear to us in our worship.  Music includes singing, piano, guitar, drums, bells, organ and many combinations there of!

Children's Message and Children's Sunday School:
During worship, the children are invited to come up front and share in a message for the day before going to Sunday school.  Sunday school meets during the worship hour.


Nursery Care is provided for children under 5 years old.

Communion -  First Sunday of every month:
We celebrate Communion on the first Sunday of every month and out table is open to everyone.  ALL are welcome to partake: members/non-members, children/adults, "first-timers", "long-timers"....you get the idea!  The table is a means of God's grace for all of us!  If you are interested in Baptism, please contact Rev. Amy amytumc@gmail.com or 503-692-1820.

Music Ministry:

We have music from A to Z!!  Maybe that should be A to G??  If you love to sing, play an instrument, write music, etc. come and join us on a Wednesday evening ( 5:30 pm.  Bells, 6:30 pm. Choir, 7:30 pm.  Praise Team)  With varied instruments, skill level, experience and the like, it is a welcome place for everyone.  Currently there is a "Chancel Choir" (usually more traditional choral music) a "Hilltop Praise" team (usually more contemporary choral music) and a bell choir (all kinds of music!).  And we have many opportunities for any idividual(s) interested in offering their gifts of music from beginners to long-timers.
