Sunday Services

I was a strangerRose City Park United Methodist Church … where “We share God’s love compassionately and inclusively through Radical Hospitality.”

We understand that walking into a new church can often times be an intimidating and sometimes frightening thing. So what can I expect when I attend the Rose City Park Church? How do I get there?  Will someone be available to answer my questions?

We want every experience you have with our church to be a comfortable, inspiring and welcoming one.  It is our desire for you to experience a sense of family and community – the same one we feel when we attend.  If you have questions that are not answered on this web site, please feel free to contact us at 503.281.1229 … or by email at (We will respond to most e-mails within 24 hours during the week – or by Tuesday of the new week.)

Sunday AM Worship Schedule

Our Sunday morning services are designed to offer something for everyone.  Our facilities are wheelchair accessible and offer special accommodations for the blind. If you have special needs that we need to know about before you get here, please let us know … and we will do everything we can to make you feel welcome and accommodate your needs!

We have a nursery for infants up to 2 years of age (with a licensed attendant) and Sunday School Classes for 3 year olds and older during both services as well as during the 10:00 a.m. Sunday School hour.

9:00 a.m. – 9:50 a.m. Contemporary Praise Service

 This is a contemporary praise service featuring our Praise Band “Cloud Nine” under the direction of Dan Pettis.   The first 20 – 25 minutes of the service is spent primarily in worship through contemporary praise and music.  It is not your typical “cookie cutter” worship – but very heartfelt.  Pastor Courtney always brings a message that speaks to our age – our culture and our needs.  We think this service is the perfect way to get your Sunday morning started!

11:00 a.m. – Our Traditional Worship Service

Our second service is designed for those who like a more traditional worship; however, there is nothing boring about this service.  If you are a music lover – this service will also delight you.  From September to May, this service features our  choir “Grace Notes” under the direction of  Frank Holman. Along with the vocals, you will discover the unparalleled organ accompaniments of John Green. From the beginning notes to the closing song where we hold hands across the aisle – we feel that you will sense God’s presence.  Pastor Courtney’s teachings seem to speak to the heart of the teachings of Jesus – as she shares insights that reflect her passion for biblical foundations and progressive theology.
