Since the 1870s we remain a long-time Southern Oregon church which strives to have Open Hearts, Open Minds and Open Doors. No matter who you are, or where you are on your journey of faith, God loves you, and you are welcome here and at any United Methodist Church. You belong! You are invited to come and enjoy cheerful traditional worship, hymn singing, delightful piano music, scripture, a valuable Bible-based message and warm friendship. Please share in refreshments with us before the service. At each first Sunday worship you are invited to our Communion Table, which is an open table. We hope you will also attend our fun monthly potluck following communion and worship.
Rev. Steven W. Berry serves as Pastor for Gold Hill United Methodist Church, Pastor for Immanuel United Methodist Church in Cave Junction and as Pastor of Adult Education for Newman United Methodist Church in Grants Pass where he founded, and continues an eight year district bible study. Pastor Steven has served numerous churches and coached development of leaders and new ministries for 18 East Coast congregations. He received his education from the Claremont School of Theology in California and at the University of the South School of Theology. In addition to his executive financial management background, he served 20 years in the US Marine Corps before retiring as a Staff Sergeant.
Pastor Steven and his wife Merle live on a forest resource property near Wilderville. They have two sons, a daughter, six grandchildren and nine animals. He enjoys reading about history, building, woodworking and keeping a garden together with his family. He also is quasi-fluent in American Sign Language.
Pastor Steven admires how United Methodist Churches keep open minds; accepting anyone and everyone who walks into their lives. He loves how the Bible relates to any situation or question one might have. He holds his church families and friends very near to his heart and prays for the continued growth and happiness of the churches he serves.
From our visiting guests, we hear, " Gold Hill UMC has for many years offered the gift of hospitality to the stranger. But you are only a stranger once. Once you have entered the community you are a brother or sister, fully accepted."
All are invited to our Bible Study each Thursday 5:30-7 pm by phone or zoom hosted by Gold Hill United Methodist Church's own Pastor Steven Berry on behalf of the Crater Lake District of the United Methodist Church for eight years. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the Bible Study phone number and link. We look forward to meeting you.
