Joseph United Methodist Church

We Love God. We Love People. We Actively Serve the World

The land upon which we worship was once the homeland of the Nez Perce. We acknowledge their past and present relationship to this ancestral land.


Whether you are looking to renew your spirit, find a supportive community or engage in meaningful service to the world Joseph UMC is for you!

Join us Sundays @ 10am!

Jesus came with the mission of helping us discover the things that make for deep happiness. He said, “I have come that you may have life and have it abundantly.”  We gather on Sundays at 10am to celebrate the blessings of community, of love, of liberation and the source of all good things. Whatever your philosophy or theology about that source of Love, you are welcome at Joseph UMC. You can watch our services on YouTube HERE.


Need a Break?

Join us for Monday Night Community Dinners! We are partnering with local chefs and community organizations to offer free dinners every Monday night starting in February. Bring your family and friends. Eat and run or hang out for a while. Bring your favorite games and make a night of it. We look forward to seeing you!


    The Place

    We strive to support abundant life through The Place. If you are in need of a commercial kitchen, want to offer a health and well-being class or need a place for a group to gather, the Place is for you!

    We are here for Good!

    One way we actively serve the world is through our food ministries.

    Fresh Alliance

    Fresh Alliance is an initiative in Wallowa County to help reduce food waste and supplement your groceries. It is a Grocery Recovery Program that seeks to reclaim food that would be thrown in a landfill.
    Regardless of your financial situation by getting perfectly good free food through Fresh Alliance you are helping our environment.

    Come to The Place Mondays and Fridays at 11:30 am to get some great food and help reduce our land fill.

    Magic Garden

    We plant, tend and harvest a community garden every year that provides fresh produce to food insecure families.

    Blessing Box

    Need some food staples to help you get through the month? Come by the corner of 3rd and main to our blessing box and take what you need!

    Meet Pastor Beth!

    “I am here to listen with you as we share our stories and discover that golden thread that weaves them together and carries us forward. My pledge is to be fully human with you as we discover God’s preferred future together. I call it following the energy. Because that is how God leads us – sprinkling the bread crumbs of joy, passion and delight for us to follow.”

    Come grow with us!

    Listen to the bell. For over 100 years it has been inviting you to the charm and comfort of its beautiful chambers. Come…view the detailed biblical stories of the art glass windows. Come and join the faith of the other pilgrims who cherish the beauty of the mountains and the hope and peace of worship in The Church.
