Celebrating Graduates

"Open Mine Eyes" by Jon Stuber

Celebrating Pastor Alyssa


We are so proud of and excited for Pastor Alyssa as she will soon be Ordained as an Elder in Full Connection in the Oregon Idaho Conference of the United Methodist Church. Her ordination will be part of the annual conference ceremony on Friday, June 24th.

Two events are planned to celebrate this excited next step in her ministry. 

  • The first will be an Ordination Watching Party on Friday, June 24th at Morningside UMC. Ordination begins at 11:00 AM and will be live-streamed into the sanctuary.
  • The second will be a time of celebration during worship on Sunday, June 26th at Morningside beginning at 10:30 AM. We will follow worship with a special reception in the Peace Fountain Courtyard.  

A basket will be available for cards during both events. (If you aren't able to attend in person, you are welcome to send in a card to the church at any time: MUMC, PO Box 3076, Salem, OR 97302.)

Both events are open to everyone within Open Door Churches.

Spiritual Formation Classes

Chair Praise & Dance Spiritual Formation Class

Hi Friends, beginning next week, the zoom chair praise dance is replaced with a chair praise dance video that you can play any time to praise God. This is a video recorded with Hanna Lee (Claremont Seminary Student who had lived as my daughter this past school year). She had graciously danced me in this video. For those who rather dance standing, dance with Hanna. 

Our chair praise video is intended for people who expresses joy with body language. Please feel free to make your own creative movement to praise God with this song.

I'll post a new song every two weeks. Enjoy!
