About Us...

We are a member of the Presbyterian Church (USA), which means we are a traditional church with roots going back to Martin Luther and the Reformation. We believe that all men and women are the children of God.  This means that we are an accepting and welcoming church without bias or prejudice.  As such we do our best to live the Gospel teachings of Jesus, which is to love God with our whole heart, mind and strength, and to love our neighbor as our selves.

We serve our community by being active throughout the Reedsport area.  Within the church we have free coats for those in need and who cannot afford to buy new.  We keep free food on hand for those who are in need.  We have a ping-pong table that is always set up and ready for anyone who desires to come in and play.  Additionally, our doors are open for groups needing a place to meet—such as AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) and OA (Over eaters Anonymous), the Quilters Guild and PEO.  In addition to the above, the pastor gives free guitar and piano lessons to all desiring to learn, but who cannot afford a teacher.

As a group of blievers, we understand the Scriptures to be the inspired word of God and do our best to be discerning and to live out God’s will in all things.  For this reason we do our best to live out the words on our weekly bulletin: "Making a Difference and Changing Lives."UPC was founded in 1919, making us one of the oldest mainline churches in Reedsport, Oregon.  Because we care, we serve as a community church by taking an active role in our community.  Many of the projects in this community have been brought into being by members of UPS, including Project Blessing. 

We can be characterized as:

     • having respect and appreciation for human diversity—we like all people

     • a church that welcomes all people because all people are children of God

     • a "come as you are" family church—we have no pretenses about who we are.

     • a welcoming, friendly, compassionate and loving community of faith 

Our vision statement:

We take seriously the admonition of Jesus that, “I assure you that when you have done it for the least of one of these brothers and sisters of mine, you have done it for me.”  We do our best to live out that admonition in both our church lives and in our personal lives.  (Click here for full quote.)


We would love to have you join us.  You'll find new friends and family here..


Matthew 25:

34. Then the king will say to those at his right hand, “Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; 35. for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36. I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.” 37. Then the righteous will answer him, “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? 38. And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? 39. And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?”

     40. And the king will reply, “I assure you that when you have done it for the least of one of these brothers and sisters of mine, you have done it for me.
