Who we are:
Oregon Community UMC is a quaint little chapel nestled back on Creek Road in the village of Oregon--just North of Oregon Dairy. The worship includes traditional hymns and an engaging, practical, Bible-based message. It provides an intimate atmosphere where you can get to really know other people and have them care for you. Oregon Community is not just a name, it really speaks to who we are. If you are looking for a worship community where you can get to know people and be known, Oregon Community UMC may be the place for you.

Response to the COVID-19 Corona Virus Pandemic: We are moving Worship Services, Bible Studies and meetings online until it is safe to meet again in person
At Faith UMC we care deeply about our church family and our neighbors. We want all of you to stay healthy and safe. Therefore, we have suspended all gatherings and have moved Worship Services, Bible Studies, Sunday School, and meetings online. We have been closely monitoring the updates on COVID-19 and will make adjustments as it becomes possible for a safe re-opening.
If there is anything that we can do for you during this season please let us know. If you need medication or food delivered to you, if you find yourself struggling to pay bills, or if you need someone to talk to as you deal with the stresses of all that is going on, please call or email Pastor Jason. If you are in a position to show kindnesses to neighbors and strangers, we encourage you to let this current season bring out the very best in all of us as we care for one another.
Join Us for Drive-In Communion in the Faith UMC Parking Lot on the First Sunday of each month (including September 6th)
We will offer a no-contact Communion Service in the Faith UMC parking lot on Sunday, on Sept. 6 at 1pm (and every First Sunday).
Worship will be held at 10:30AM online, and then you are invited to join us for the Sacrament of Communion at 1pm.
Please bring your own bread and juice which will be collectively blessed by Pastor Jason during the service.
You will also need to stay in your vehicles with windows closed to keep one another safe--even after the service. Feel free to wave or chat by phone from the safety of your vehicle.
We will broadcast the service on FM 89.9 to your car radios.
Please note that there will be a full worship service online at 10:30AM, and that this service does not replace that. This is specifically focused on communion.
Chatting at the General Sutter - Mondays at 7pm VIA ZOOM
Chatting at the General Sutter Inn normally takes place every Monday from 7-8pm, using a curriculum called The Wired Word. We will discuss various topics that have been in the news—making space for different opinions and for folks to enjoy an evening of conversation. Perhaps we will learn something new. This group is open to everyone, so please invite friends to join you. Our goal is to instigate friendly discussions around interesting and sometimes controversial topics that have social, community, philosophical and theological angles.
While we used to meet at the General Sutter Inn in Lititz we will currently be meeting online via Zoom until it is safe to gather in person again. The Zoom Link is: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86190453518
