Cascadia District


The Cascadia District consists of 47 congregations and two Hispanic Fellowships, stretching from the north Oregon coast to the high desert of Eastern Oregon.  A defining geographical feature of this entire region is the Cascade Mountain Range, which has a profound influence on the physical and social life across the region.  "Cascadia" refers to the whole region, a diverse set of local communities which have in common being impacted by the mountains.  Likewise, the congregations which make up the Cascadia District are contextually diverse expressions of our common faith in Christ and our shared United Methodist heritage.

  • Cascadia District Annual Gathering

    • We have a tradition of gathering for a meal and meeting at the Annual Conference Session.  Because the AC Session is virtual again this year, we will hold a virtual Cascadia District Gathering.  It will be Wednesday, June 2nd, at 7 p.m.  You can see some details and find the registration link by clicking here.  
    • We would like to feature local church ministries which have gone on during this pandemic year.  If you have a ministry you'd like to share, please send one photo and a couple of sentences describing it to Linda at linda@umoi.org not later than the morning of Wednesday, May 26th.  Thank you!

    • In addition to clergy members, and lay members from local churches, Cascadia District has several district "equalization" lay members of AC.  If you are a youth, young adult, college student, or ethnic minority member of one of our local churches and you would like to be involved with the 2021 AC Session, let us know!  Learn more details about the requirements and responsibilities of these positions at the "Cascadia District Equalization Members" link in the left-hand menu, and then contact Linda at cascadia@umoi.org.
