Message from Bishop Stanovsky:

EXTENSION OF WORSHIP SUSPENSION AND BUILDING CLOSURES  As bishop of the Greater Northwest Area of The United Methodist Church, I am extending the suspension of in-person worship in United Methodist Churches and other ministries and the closure of church facilities to all but essential services throughout the Alaska, Oregon-Idaho and Pacific Northwest Conferences through May 30, 2020, despite the loosening of restrictions in some or all of the states of Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.

This date may be reconsidered as circumstances change.

Open Table has become “Open Air Open Table”!

Thursday, March 19th, a group of 10 volunteers gathered and assembled sack lunches to distribute to those in need, from the sidewalk in front of the church.  We served 63 lunches to members of our community.  We will not be able to serve a lunch on March 26th, but we are looking for a way to provide curbside meals again in the near future. 


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)
