Welcome to Canby United Methodist Church!

Canby United Methodist Church strives to carry on the heritage of the Methodist pioneers who settled the Oregon territory, bringing faith and vision to this new land. We embrace this spirit of new possibility in all that we do, seeking to be a church of "Open Hearts, Open Minds and Open Doors".  We desire to serve our Lord Jesus Christ in all that we do, embracing long standing traditions and new ideas. Come be a part of the journey of faith!

Mission Statement

Canby United Methodist Church is a diverse group of believers...Praying for God's will; listening for the Holy Spirit; and seeking to follow the way of Christ.

We are called to glorify God; to use our talents to serve others in family, church, community and world; to be a supportive fellowship seeking to grow spiritually and to share the teachings of Jesus Christ through our thoughts, words and actions.

Pastor Karen Shimer is a person passionate about walking with Jesus and invested in living out God's messy love.  It isn't always easy, nor clear, but it is always rewarding and fulfilling, sometimes scary and often unpredictable.  Walking with God is like that.  Connect with Pastor Karen Shimer though her blog: Come. Rest. Ask. Grow. Walk.

The title of my blog: Come. Rest. Ask. Grow. Walk. fell out of my envelop of collaging words one day and arranged themselves in this order on a creative collage I was making. I saw that it was the recipe for living a faith life with intention.

I am living into these words myself and inviting those around me to do so also. May you find a meaningful connection with God in the words that tumble from my life.
