The Hillsboro United Methodist Church is a congregation of 300 people located in Hillsboro, Oregon. We are members of the Oregon/Idaho Conference in the Western Jurisdiction of the United Methodist Church. Hillsboro UMC began with a gathering of settlers on the dusty Tualatin Plains in the summer of 1843. Now 169 years later, we continue in the footsteps of the early pioneers as we gather to grow spiritually through worship, small group studies, fellowship and service to our wider community.
Much has changed along with our size and location. Now in our third "meeting-house", the church employs a staff of eight people dedicated to furthering God’s love in this world. Beginning in 1843, visiting circuit riders brought an occasional message to the faithful handful that gathered on the plain. Today, community groups including a preschool, 12-step programs, Bag & Baggage (a local theatre company) and the Boy Scouts use our facility.
One of the last pioneer churches established by Methodist missionary Jason Lee, Hillsboro UMC enjoys a rich heritage that follows the growth and development of the State of Oregon. In recent years Hillsboro has witnessed a change from a farming community to an electronics center, with a population of over 95,000. The makeup of the church reflects this growth.
