History of the CoOp


All Are Welcome

We adopted a welcoming statement that specifically includes all [LGBTQIA+] persons; Trinity Lutheran Church also voted unanimously to become a Reconciling in Christ (RIC) congregation.

Shared Ownership

We took a final step into a fully cooperative relationship by voting to share ownership of the downtown property.

Formation of the CoOp

After a long process, both congregations voted to become McMinnville Cooperative Ministries.

Shared Worship

We began sharing worship services.

Mexico Mission

Both churches participated in a spring break trip called Mexico Mission. The question was asked whether there were other things we could do better together than we could do apart.

Lutherans Seek New Building

Trinity Lutheran Church sells the church building their congregation had outgrown. The congregation had an option on property on the edge of town and planned to build a new facility there. Over the next five years that piece of property and six others failed to work out as a new home for the congregation.

Downtown & Parkview

McMinnville United Methodist ministry plan identified serving the whole community as a major emphasis. As a result, the congregation decided to remain downtown and construct another multipurpose building instead of moving out to its Parkview property.

Lutheran Congregation

Trinity Lutheran Church worships in suburban McMinnville.

Current Building

The Methodist congregation continued to grow and over the years the buildings were replaced until the current church on the corner of Second and Ford was completed.

First Building

The Methodists had gained enough in numbers to build their own structure on the block that we still occupy at Second and Evans Streets.

Methodist Congregation

The McMinnville United Methodist Church was founded by early settlers in the area.
