Music Ministries

Our formal music programs are currently on hiatus until we can safely meet in person for worship service, but there is a current need for special music to accompany our virtual services. If you are interested in recording a music performance to be included in service, please reach out and let us know.

Grace Notes

Each week, members of Grace Notes come together for devotion, sharing and writing cards to church family members who are celebrating birthdays, anniversaries or who need extra prayers for illness or sympathies. Everyone is welcome to join this group that spreads light and love among our church family!

Prayer Shawl Ministry

The crocheting/knitting group meets monthly on the second Thursday to make shawls, lap robes and baby blankets and hats filled with prayers that are gifted to comfort members of our church family, the community and the Babies in Need program. All levels of experience are welcome.

If you or someone you know are going through a difficult time and would like a shawl, lap robe or newborn cap, please contact us.

Book Club

The Mill Plain UMC book club is open to all and meets monthly to discuss that latest book selection, which ranges from historical fiction to novels or nonfiction. It will be posted on the calendar when classes are again starting up.

Mill Plain means so much to us. We came together there and had our wedding there. It’s hard to express how much it means to us.
