You are welcome here. Jesus said, “Love God and love your neighbor as yourself.” We, the congregation of Newberg First United Methodist Church, follow this commandment by welcoming all people of any race, ethnicity, identity, gender, sexual orientation, age, ability, economic status, religion, or life situation into the life and ministries of the church. With open minds we affirm that all people are created in the image of God and all are worthy of God’s love and grace. We welcome you to join us in our faith journey toward greater love, understanding, and mutual respect. Come, grow in grace with us.
Living our lives as disciples of Christ is RISKY!
Throughout Lent we will gather with our sisters and brothers from Joyful Servant Lutheran and Newberg Emerging Friends Churches to talk about the risk it is to be a follower of Christ, and what risk God takes on with us as God’s followers. A recurring question for all of us will be, “What is God calling you/us to risk?” So, take a risk and join with God’s people this Lenten Season as we gather for a meal, for conversation, and for evening prayer! (Note: dates below with an * do NOT include meal.)
All are welcome – bring a friend!
