We believe God will comfort, guide, and forgive every person, no matter who they are or what they’ve done. He does this through reconciliation with humans as the Trinity: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As the Father, God is the sovereign creator and ruler of the universe. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, who was both man and God’s Son, and without sin, humans are offered freely the gift of salvation and eternal life. After receiving salvation, the Holy Spirit is a “Counselor” and “Helper” in our faith journey.

MCUMC’s Backpack Blessings ministry has partnered with Gresham and Glen Iris elementary schools to provide weekend sustenance for food-insecure children. On the first Wednesday of each month at 5:00 pm during the school year, MCUMC will be preparing bags of food for each qualifying child. Then, every Friday, teachers at the schools discretely place the bags with a weekend’s worth of food in the backpacks of the kids in need.
We welcome your participation in this ministry by:
– praying for the ministry and the children impacted
– packing the bags on the first Wednesday night of the month
– serving as one of our drivers on the pickup or delivery team
– sponsoring a child for one year for $200, or donating any amount you wish to share
If you have questions or want to volunteer as a driver, please contact the church office.
