Rockwood UMC not Closing its Doors.

Have You Heard the Rumor?

Rockwood  United Methodist Church is closing….

It is not True!


There are great changes coming to Rockwood Building.

The new Rockwood Center is in the building phase.   The Center will soon be celebrating the new addition of a Headstart Program of MHCC located in the west wing of the building. Two classrooms, including child toilets and sinks are currently under construction. Completion date set to be August 15th. A new fenced playground will also be under construction, in the grassy area at the rear building.


   From Sunday July 2nd thru September 3 Rockwood United Methodist congregation will be worshiping at Cherry Park UMC at 1736 SE 106th Ave. at 10 am.  We will be doing this while Rockwood Center finishes the construction of new spaces in the building.


In September, date TBA, we will again be meeting at 17805 SE Stark ST.  Rockwood UMC will continue to be a worshiping presence in Rockwood but we are letting the building grow and change for God’s people.


Rockwood shares a church secretary with Cherry Park UMC so now the shared office is housed at Cherry Park UMC.  If you need to reach the office the new number is 503-253-2386.  The office has new office hours, too! Tuesday and Wednesday 9 am to 2 pm  and Thursday 8 am to 2 pm.   Of course there is an answering machine you can leave a message on and the staff will get back to you ASAP.

Please send any mail for Rockwood UMC to 1736 SE 106th Ave, Portland, OR 97216


More News!!  Snowcap and The Rockwood Center is in the planning stages to continue the traditional Thanksgiving Day Dinner and the Christmas Day Dinner that provide meals to members of the community, especially with the ability to use both large areas for serving meals. This means more volunteers will be needed, so mark your calendars and contact Snowcap for volunteering.
