  • Willapa UMC to Suspend Sunday Service

    The Bishop of the Pacific Northwest Conference has issued the following statement, "I am directing the local churches of any size and other ministries in the states of Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington to suspend in-person worship and other gatherings of more than 10 people for the next two weeks, starting today. Your conference leaders and I will assess unfolding events and update this directive as appropriate, but no later than March 24, before Palm Sunday and Holy Week."

    Willapa United Methodist Church will suspend Sunday Worship Service and Bible Study until further notice. Updates will be provided on our website as they are received.

    Blessings everyone.

  • Bible Study - Christian Mindfulness Starting March 5th

    Please join us for a Bible Study on Christian Mindfulness. 

    Gary Burns took a five-day course on this subject that was taught by the author of the book, Right Here, Right Now, Amy Oden.

     In this Bible Study Gary will lead us through the book and share what he learned from his training.

    “This book reveals the Christian roots of mindfulness and the actual practices that, when reclaimed, deepen the life of faith and the power of our mission of love in the world. When we understand how radical it is to live in God’s presence right here, right now, our lives are transformed toward mercy, justice and abundant life.”

    Dates:  Weekly beginning March 5th and ending April 9th

    Time:    Thursdays at 6:00 pm

    Place:   Willapa United Methodist Church - 969 Willapa First Street (Old Willapa)

    Books are available at the church or online from Amazon for $11.00.  Please read the first chapter prior to the first class.  Hope to see you there!!  Questions:  call Janet Corey at 360.589.2616

  • Pastorial Coverage Through 2019

    As most of you know, Willapa will most likely be without a permanent Pastor until June of next year.  We have been blessed, since Pastor Sheila left at the end of June for a wonderul opportunity in Wenatchee, to have members of our congregation step up to provide the message for our worship service.  Everyone has done a wonderful job providing very interesting and thought provoking messages!

    We are blessed to have a retired Pastor from Aberdeen, K. Bramstedt, volunteer to come to Willapa twice a month to lead the service, give the message and provide communion.  She continues to provide this to our congregation going into 2020 and is a blessing to us.
