FAITH UNITED METHODIST CHURCH is a gathering of Christians with passion and potential. We grow together through weekly worship, daily prayer, and service to others.

Our Mission Statement is simply to recognize Jesus in all people by accepting, caring and sharing God’s love as we serve the world through our community.

All are welcome to participate in worship, group studies, and events at the church. Dress comfortably for worship – jeans or shorts are fine. Jesus usually wore sandals.

Enjoy a quiet stroll through the Peace Garden, open seven days a week.

Yes, there is room for you here at Faith United Methodist Church. Worship begins at 10:45AM. We welcome you!

And, you can visit us on Facebook at FaithUMC.Troutdale.

We also happily share space with our friends in ministry, River of Life Lutheran Church. Together we look at ways we can join in bringing the Word of God and the love of Jesus to the community around us. The River of Life congregation is let by Pastor Norm Metzler, with worship at 9:00am on Sundays. For more information about River of Life, feel free to click the link to the right.

The Peace of Christ be with you,

Pastor Tom



Faith United Methodist Church was organized in 1979 and began worshiping at Cherry Park, later moving to Sweetbriar Elementary School. In 1982, the Charter Members of Faith purchased a 7 acre parcel of land. The tract, an egg and dairy farm, belonged to Jack Elmer of Heidi’s Swiss Village and JaCiva Bakery and Chocolatier in Portland. Jack, a man with a big heart negotiated a deal with the church that enabled them to include a beautiful home on the property to be used as the sanctuary, church office and parsonage. Construction on the church building began soon after and the first worship service was held in the sanctuary in 1992.
