Welcome to Mill Plain UMC

Message from Pastor Sue

Welcome to Mill Plain United Methodist Church. You will find here a community of people seeking to grow in our faith and to respond in compassion to our community. This congregation has a deep passion for hands-on ministry with those in need. Some of our ministries are long-standing. For two decades we’ve been serving meals to low-income and homeless people at Share House, helping to staff the Winter Hospitality Overflow shelters, and working with children at Hearthwoood Elementary School. Some of our ministries are new: Safe Park where people living in their cars legally park in our parking lot overnight, The Little Free Pantry, and the Mill Plain Book Exchange. We are open to new ideas and new possibilities as God unfolds them before us.

Mill Plain is known as a friendly congregation, not just with people who have been here for years but also with those who walk in our doors for the first time. The COVID-19 pandemic challenges us because we miss each other! 

At the same time, the pandemic is opening us to a new world. Truly, the congregation has left the building, both in service as we always have, and now also in worship and study. Even when we cannot be together in person, we now offer worship virtually, so that we praise God and listen for God’s call at any time. The same thing is true for Sunday School, Bible studies and books studies (see the calendar for details). 

Mill Plain is filled with people who want to know you and walk together in faith with you. Welcome to our web site and welcome to our church.

Pastor Sue Ostrom
