Welcoming Statement

The proposed Welcoming Statement, affirmed by the Tigard UMC Church Council last fall, was overwhelmingly approved in worship on June 12, 2016 by the Tigard UMC congregation. Nearly 94% of ballots cast affirmed the statement:

As followers of Jesus Christ, Tigard United Methodist Church welcomes and affirms everyone. Through his example, Jesus reveals a God whose love knows no boundaries. We believe that God is the source of diversity in our world, and that God affirms and celebrates our diversity. Our community of faith is enriched and strengthened by the uniqueness of each person and the wonderful variety of our humanity. We welcome people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. We welcome people of all races and ethnicities. We welcome people regardless of age, class, economic status, health, ability, or any other identifying label. Through God’s inclusive love we are bound together.
Everyone is a beloved child of God.
Everyone deserves to be included.
Everyone is welcome at Tigard United Methodist Church.

  • What they’re saying…

    I spent about 2 years enjoying Jubilatte’s warm inviting atmosphere. I’d drink coffee while my kids played in the play area. It was in Jubilatte that I met and began to form relationships with church members and also Pastor Jeremy. When we decided to start attending Sunday worship, it was clear to me what an impact Jubilatte had on my family’s life. Tigard UMC is where we belong. I’m not sure if we would have discovered that if it wasn’t for Jubilatte.
