Click the link below to enjoy our series on YouTube:   “WorshipTime at Hermiston UMC”!   This is our new socially-distanced approach to worship which involves different members of the congregation each week.  We began this series on July 6th.  Today, July 12th, is the second installment.

If you would like to contribute by recording a Bible verse, prayer, song, poem, etc., let us know and we’ll work together to include you!

Open Table has become “Open Air Open Table”!

We have restarted our Open Table!  Each Thursday from 11:00am to 12:15pm, we provide curbside meals.  Our building still isn’t open, but we continue to serve our community. 



Food Pantry

Thanks to the help of Jerry Nance, who dug the post hole and cemented the post into the ground, and Dean Fialka, who built the cute (and functional) little pantry, and the 3 or 4 people who have kept it stocked with food for the past 3 weeks, we have been able to help many people who would not have otherwise had food.  The need is real! 

Items needed are not like items donated to a normal food pantry.  Our friends have no means by which to cook or bake, so everything has to be edible from the container and must have pull-top lids.  Dry foods must be packaged individually.

Food pantry donations may be made on Monday and Wednesday mornings.  Monetary donations can be mailed to the church (address on this website).  You may also make your donations here on the website by clicking on the “Donations” tab at the top of this page.  After choosing the amount, click on “I would like to designate this donation to a specific fund”.  Click on the drop down menu where it says “No fund specified”, then choose “Food Pantry” from the list.

If you have questions, please call me at (541) 561-3314 or (541) 567-1948.

I will close with these words from the Apostle Paul, “Only, they asked us to remember the poor, the very thing I was eager to do.”  (Galations 2:10)

I welcome you to the website of the First United Methodist Church of Hermiston.

I invite you to continue looking through the website, and encourage you to visit us for Sunday morning worship at 11:00am.  We offer a variety of activities including a weekly hunger ministry, choir, bell choir, and short-term study groups.  Please let us know if we may assist you in any way.
