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.
Three times a month, we serve meals at our local Women's or Family Shelters.
Volunteers are always welcome.
Please join us in providing nourishment for our nearby community!
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.
