Whether you are curious or seriously seeking a “church home,” you are very much welcome at Christ UMC. Located in Cedar Mill, a Western suburb of Portland, OR, we have become a regional church which includes members living in Tigard, Beaverton, Forest Heights, Bethany, Aloha, Hillsboro, and other nearby communities. We provide a warm inclusive environment where people from all walks of life are welcome.

We are a community church focused on serving God and our local community. The feedback received from many visitors has been that they have felt the presence of God in a real way; they have experienced an incredible sense of being loved just as they are; that the preaching is inspired, practical and effective, and that the fellowship is strong and deep. Get directions here.

The new United Methodist Handbook is now available in an easy-to-read and share digital format. The Handbook is among the best resources for laity providing leadership, people new to The United Methodist Church and clergy who occasionally get stumped by a question. It includes:

• United Methodist teachings,

• denominational initiatives,
• what it means to be a worldwide church,
• connectional giving information,
• a glossary of United Methodist terms … and much more.


We also encourage you to explore our site and take a look at everything we have to offer you and your family. We are confident that you will find that Christ UMC to be a place where you can experience God, learn about walking with Christ and connect with others to join you on your faith journey.

Children are always welcome to share in worship with the full congregation.  They will be invited to join Pastor Ric during worship for “Children’s Time” where they will be given a special message relating to the weekly sermon. Activity Bags are available upon request and children can also choose to go to “Children’s Church” during regular worship service.

What is Worship Like?

Our worship is a passionate mix of traditional and contemporary styles of music led by seasoned local Jazz pianist Jeff Kauffman.  Our sermons are inspirational and will get you thinking.

Is there a dress code?

We do not have a dress code; just dress comfortably. For some, this may mean dressing up, but for most it simply means wearing casual clothes. We want everyone to be comfortable, and enjoy God’s presence.
