We are so glad you are interested in Mill Plain UMC and hope to welcome you in person soon! The best way to learn more is to attend a worship service, and then stay behind to chat over a cup of coffee to meet others and learn more about the programs, ministries and social and service opportunities.
It can be intimidating to try something new, so we hope the following information is helpful. Please know that you should come as you are and observe or participate to whatever level makes you most comfortable.
When we are meeting in person, we have two service times and they run approximately one hour followed by coffee and fellowship.
9:30 a.m. Contemporary — featuring the praise band along with traditional hymns.
11 a.m. Traditional — featuring the Chancel Choir.
Childcare & Sunday School
Childcare for ages newborn to pre-K is available during both services. Sunday school classes for students in K-12 are held during the 9:30 a.m. service following the Young Disciple’s Message. Children of all ages are welcome to attend service and activity kits are available.
Learn more about our programs and offerings for Youth & Children.
Communion is offered during both services on the first Sunday of the month. All are welcome to receive and a gluten-free option is available.

Parking & Entering
Mill Plain United Methodist Church is located at 15804 SE Mill Plain Blvd., Vancouver, WA 98684. You will find ample parking and accessible spaces. The office is located at the first door on the right as you pull into the parking lot and the sanctuary entrance is located around the corner to the right of the office entrance. Either entrance leads to the sanctuary, but greeters will be stationed at the rear doors and can assist with accessibility prior to worship times.
We were seeking a church that would warmly embrace all people in community, a place that inspired service to our community through both words and deeds, and that would help our entire family grow in our faith – including a children’s ministry and participatory music (yes, our wishlist was long!). And, we found all of that here at MPUMC, our new church home.
