WELCOME TO MILL PLAIN UMC
In an abundance of caution to prevent spread of the coronavirus that causes COVID19, and in compliance with Governor Jay Inslee's orders to close non-essential businesses, Bishop Elaine Stanovsky of the Greater Northwest Episcopal Area has directed that in-person worship services and other ministries and the closure of church facilities to all but essential services are canceled until May 30. Therefore, worship services for Mill Plain United Methodist Church will be done Sundays at 10 a.m. via Facebook on the Mill Plain UMC Facebook page and on YouTube.
Even though the church office is currently closed, our staff is checking phone messages on a daily basis. The office phone number is 360-892-2421.
You may also reach the office staff via email

Please continue to check on each other as we observe physical distancing and social connection in this unprecedented and dire time.
Mill Plain UMC will remain closed until JUNE 15, 2020.

LISTEN TO OUR SUNDAY MESSAGE HERE
As United Methodists, our forebear, John Wesley taught three simple rules of faith which guide us in this era of ministry in a pandemic.
First: Do No Harm. In order to do our part to slow the spread of the coronavirus, and to keep members of our congregation and staff healthy, our building is closed. The church, however, is NOT closed: we are active and vital.
Second: Do all the good you can. Ministry continues. Our Little Free Pantry is stocked daily to help members of our community who are without kitchens so that they have access to food. We reach out to those within our congregation every week. Daily our staff checks messages left on our answering machine and responds as they are able.
Third: Stay in love with God. We continue to worship! We do so online. Join us on Mill Plain United Methodist Church’s Facebook page at 10 a.m.on Sundays. You can also access that service at any other time or find us on YouTube. Our online worship is growing and expanding and reaching even more people.
We also Love God together on Zoom:
- Bible Study Sunday 3 p.m.;
- Youth Group Wednesday 7:30 p.m.;
- Story Time with Pastor Sue Wednesday at 4:30 p.m.; and many more activities.
Contact us at email@example.com for more information.
People are praying and reading the Bible at home on their own. If you would like a copy of The Upper Room daily devotional, send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org or find The Upper Room free devotional on line.

Welcome to the Mill Plain United Methodist Church web site. Perhaps you have come here for the first time to check us out, to find out who we are as a people of faith: what we believe, where we are located, when we worship and learn, what sorts of things we do. I’m glad you came to this web site and encourage you to open our various links and discover a bit more about us. And I hope that will lead you to visit us in person so that we can meet you and welcome you in a more personal way.
Or, perhaps you are already a part of this body of believers we call the Mill Plain United Methodist Church and have come here to look at the calendar to remember when a special event will be held. I hope this web site is a useful source of information for you as you participate in our many ministries.
Whoever you are, please know that you are indeed welcome both on this web site and at the Mill Plain United Methodist Church. Please come here often and participate as you feel comfortable. As our vision statement affirms, “We are disciples of Jesus Christ in an accepting community of faith compassionately serving others in God’s name.” Welcome.
