Events

Gresham United Methodist Church has a number of ministries created to reach into the community and to spiritually strengthen the congregation. Some ministries meet monthly, others are seasonal, still others are twice a month.

There are opportunities to volunteer for meal programs or community service projects.  We hold classes and offer a variety of study groups to enhance your spiritual life.  There are opportunities to knit or be part of a book group. 

 

On this page is a selection of our offerings.  Take a moment to explore our ministries and join us on the journey.
