Weather Related Announcements:
This winter the weather may impact worship services, meetings, Bible Studies and events. Generally speaking we will work to have the church lot plowed, shoveled and salted and the building open—especially for Sunday School and Worship Services. Of course, it is up to you whether you feel comfortable driving and walking in the weather. Unless we announce otherwise, we will be here ready for you. However, we certainly understand if you decide to stay home when there are snowstorms. If weather has you attend with us even though you are normally part of one of our local sister churches we will even help pass your offering along to them if you clearly mark it before putting it in the offering plate--or you can mail it in.
If you are making a change to an event you are leading, please contact Pastor Jason, ASAP so that we can update information. Weather related changes will be published here on this website.

Friday Morning Bible Study & Prayer at Faith UMC at 10:00am
Everyone is welcome. We meet at Faith UMC, but folks from the community and several different churches attend. Pastor Jason leads these Bible Studies. This is a chance to deeply explore your faith—and how it impacts the rest of your life. We would love to have you join us. We meet in the Fellowship Hall in the Education Wing at Faith UMC. We are just beginning a series on "Social Justice" from a Christian perspective. We will explore how to make decisions on complicated issues for ourselves and our society that are righteous and just in the eyes of God. This is not partisan. We are not attempting to define the right answer for each person. Our goal is to talk about the process of how to make those types of decisions as individuals and as groups.

Sunday Morning Bible Study at Oregon Community UMC at 8am (beginning February 3)
Mike Shifflet will be leading this weekly study regarding issues affecting Native Americans. There are many injustices perpetrated against our Native American brothers and sisters that could be addressed by effective church ministry, common sense laws and awareness by other citizens of the United States. And the United Methodist Church is working toward some of these solutions. If you are interested in learning more, and being a part of the conversation please join us.
