Linda Grund-Clampit, Cascadia District Administrative Assistant

Cascadia District Superintendent Tim Overton-Harris will be meeting with local congregations in geographic clusters on Sundays in October and November to discuss the options for the future of The United Methodist Church following the decisions made by the 2019 Special General Conference.

These events are informational and intended to provide a safe space to learn about the various options, ask questions, and to share opinions and preferences with the D.S.  The discussions will take place using guidelines to allow all to share and to avoid judgement or debate or attempts to persuade. 

In addition, these events will provide an opportunity to ask any other questions of the DS which you have at this time.

The Cluster Meeting at Banks Community UMC on Sunday, Nov. 17th is designed for Hillsboro First UMC, Las Naciones-Hillsboro, Cornelius UMC, Banks Community UMC, Forest Grove UMC, Sherwood UMC, and Mt. Home UMC

DS Tim hopes that attendance from each congregation will include at least the

  • pastor,
  • SPRC chair or representative,
  • Trustees chair or representative,
  • Lay Leader and/or
  • Church Board chair 

Other leaders and interested members are welcome as well.

Please register to indicate that you plan to attend so that we can be prepared for your presence.  There is no cost.
