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.

Meal Program

Our purpose is to prepare and provide healthy and delicious food to adults and children in need in our community. We prepare  several meals a month for the Women’s and Family Shelters as well as conduct various food drives. 


Solve-It-Saturday is a men's group that meets on the first Saturday of each month at 8:00 a.m.  

Men eat breakfast, reflect on a devotional moment and do small jobs around the church.

Music Program

We have a strong choir program led by Solveig Nyberg. Practices are on Wednesday evenings weekly. If you are interested in singing or playing hand bells, contact the office or stop in and talk with Solveig. Our bell choir meets after the second service on Sunday afternoons.
