About United Lutheran

Our Vision

Responding to God's grace, made known to us through Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit, we dedicate ourselves to WELCOME, GROW and GO.

Our Mission

To WELCOME newcomers into our faith community to help make a difference. To GROW toward God and one another. To GO out to tell the story of God's love and serve in Jesus' name.

All Are Welcome

United is a Reconciling in Christ member of the Oregon Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. United Lutheran Church is recognized by Lutherans Concerned as a Reconciling in Christ congregation—we welcome all God's children to worship with us, regardless of sexual orientation or identity.

What we believe

United is part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). The mission of the ELCA is:

Marked with the cross of Christ forever, we are claimed, gathered and sent for the sake of the world.  As members of the ELCA, we believe that we are freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. With our hands, we do God’s work of restoring and reconciling communities in Jesus’ name throughout the world.”  It is truly "God's Work, Our Hands."

Our Story

United was founded in 1926 as part of the United Lutheran Church in America.  From its origins, United Lutheran brought together people of faith who wished to have their primary worship in English.  United’s commitment to youth, education, community, and social justice make it a standout among Lutheran Congregations.  We seek to come together with people of other faiths to see what God has in store for our community.
