Rockwood and Cherry Park Vote to Merge


On October 8, 2017 Rockwood and Cherry Park UMC both voted to merge and become one congregation.   This will become official on Jan. 1 , 2018.   We will use the Cherry Park UMC Building on 1736 SE 106th Ave.  to house the new congregation.  Worship is at 10 am on Sunday mornings.  We will continue our out reach to neighborhood schools, SnowCap and other mission projects.

Rockwood donated their building to Gresham United Methodist Ministries in March of 2017.  The building is housing a Head Start Program and will have areas where the community can come together for projects.  Girl Scouts will use a room to have their weekly meetings.  Gresham United Methodist Ministries will join with SnowCap to help host the annual Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinners.  

Great things are happening at Rockwood Center.
