We're glad you are here!

2021 marked the 130th year of Smyrna United Church of Christ. In January of 1891, ground was broken to build a church midway between the settlements of Needy and Yoder, Oregon, in the heavily timbered rural land in the Willamette Valley. The first service in the roughed-in building was held in April 1891

Meet Our Interim Ministers:  Rev. Catherine Allard and Rev. Dr. Janet Parker will be sharing the position of intentional interim pastor, beginning March 1, 2022.  They will be guiding the church through the process of choosing a settled pastor.

Rev Catherine Allard

If you are looking for an established, progressive church that is welcoming, open and affirming to all, then you may just have found the place you have been looking for!  Smyrna United Church of Christ was founded over 125 years ago, and is located in a beautiful, peaceful part of the mid-Willamette Valley.  As part of the UCC, our congregation participates in a faith tradition that values spiritual development, life-long learning and critical inquiry, and the embrace of values that promote the well-being of body, mind, spirit, community, and creation.

If you are looking for a faith home in which to worship, pray, think, question, and do so with others who believe that “God is still speaking,” then come and join us!  

No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.

Rev Dr. Janet Parker
