Join our Zoom Worship Service on APRIL 5 at 10:30 AM

Meeting ID: 598250400



On Palm Sunday, April 5th, Jeri Silfies will be presenting the message. 

Online communion will look a bit different.  Please have a beverage made from the bounty of the earth (coffee, tea, juice) and a bread or baked good of some sort on hand for the service.  Pastor Brett will bless the elements remotely and we will celebrate using a liturgy that Pastor Bo Sanders of Vermont Hills UMC made to symbolize how the many become one in Jesus. 

For Palm Sunday, you can make your own symbol for a Palm branch, or if you have a Palm tree in your yard, shimmy up and grab one. The Palm branches in Scripture represent victory, so you can use anything from your home that symbolizes victory. Brian Hanes will probably be wearing his Kansas City Chiefs hat, as he should!

From Bishop Elaine Stanovsky, March 24:


"As your bishop, I am charged to lead and oversee the spiritual and temporal affairs of The United Methodist Church. For the love of God and of our neighbors in every place, today I am directing continued suspension of in-person worship through April 30, 2020. This suspension of worship includes Palm Sunday, Holy Week and Easter. It applies to both indoor and outdoor worship, weddings and funerals and to all days of the week."

Family Promise


Your Help Needed

Imagine you’re a family of four, restarting your life in a new place, with no family and friends nearby. You’re living in a motel room when Coronavirus shuts everything down.

Sarah and Carl are just this family. They and their two sons have been staying in a hotel since October. 

They are just one of the hundreds of thousands of families who are experiencing homelessness or are at imminent risk. 

Family Promise of Beaverton is doing something about this in our community by mobilizing people like you to come together and keep kids safe through this crisis. Make a gift today to help families have a safe home during the COVID-19 crisis and long after it ends


NOTE:  You may access some of the past sermons from the Home Page by hovering over SERMONS, clicking on PODCASTs and then selecting a date.  As Pastor Brett sends future E Mails, the information will be posted here on the Home Page.


Welcome and Thanks for Visiting our Site!

Welcome to Aloha United Methodist Church -- a safe place for all people to worship regardless of age, race, creed, gender, cultural background or sexual orientation. We believe in God and in unconditional love and support for each other. We want to provide sanctuary and hope for a life of peace and joy. Come fellowship with us!

Who Are We?

At Aloha UMC, we are not a large, formal congregation.  Our building does not resemble a cathedral. You don't have to get all dressed up to join us. We won't tell you that we have all the answers, though we love wrestling with the important life questions.

We are a community of friends and neighbors who love God.  We are your neighbors, your co-workers, and the person next to you on the Max.  We are people of all ages, races, and socio-economic backgrounds.  We genuinely care about each other, the neighborhood, and the world in which we live.  

Our Mission: To voice hope by reaching out, enlarging the circle of blessing as we grow in God's grace.

Our Vision: We will be a safe spiritual home for all, encouraging growth and service to God, in our community and beyond.

CommunityWe Are Focused On Community

Our mission and outreach work deals with our local community.  

We participate in Family Promise, a program in Washington County that provides food and housing to homeless families.  Aloha UMC hosts 3 familes (as many as 18 people) every 8 weeks for a week, providing a place to sleep and hot meals.  Dinner hosts and ovenight hosts participate in this program.  

We provide meeting space for both Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymouse six days a week. 

We also provide a place to worship for other Christian community groups.


adult groupsWe Have Programs For Adults

On Wednesday there is a Christian Faith study group, and on Thursday there is a prayer group that also focuses discussion on a specific book that the group is reading.  Sophia Circle is a book discussion group that meets once each month on the 2nd Tuesday.   We have a United Methodist Men's Group.and a United Methodist Women's Group that meet monthly.


choirWe Have A Great Choir

Everyone is invited to join the choir regardless of musical background or skill.  If you love to sing, and if you enjoy learning new Christian music as well as old-time hymns, you'll find a home in our choir.  Practice is Thursday evenings at 6:30PM in our Fellowship Hall. All skill levels are welcome. Come join us!



food and fellowshipWe Always Enjoy Food And Fellowship

Everyone is welcome to our Methodist Men's Breakfast the 2nd Sunday of each month beginning at 8:30 AM. 

We have a potluck lunch following our worship service on the 5th Sunday of each month.  

We provide hot coffee before worship service. After each worship service you are welcome to join us for coffee, tea, and healthy snacks (ok, sometimes cake and cookies sneak in) in the community room.  We are Methodists after all, so there will be food and plenty of it.  

Please join us!!
