Church history

In 1883 an association of ten ministers and ten lay persons formed a corporation under the laws of Oregon and Washington territories called “Ocean Park Camp Meeting Association of the Methodist Episcopal Church”. The 250 acre property was divided into lots and the first camp meeting was held July 26th to August 5, 1883. These meetings continued for many years.

The present church building was started in 1913 and completed in 1914. It was built by the popular subscription with J. E. Hazeltine of Portland, Oregon matching the total funds collected. The cost of the building was $3,185.00. The Ocean Park Methodist Church was dedicated on August 9, 1914 by District Superintendent Dr. S. S. Sullinger. The Ocean Park Methodist Church bell hung originally in the Oysterville Methodist Church (1871-1921). It was a gift from John Crellin. The bell was made in Philadelphia about 1874 and shipped via railroad to San Francisco then to Oysterville on a sailing schooner used in the oyster trade. The bell is inscribed, “First M. E. Church, Oysterville, 1876.” The bell was taken down in 2005 for cleaning and restoration. It was reinstalled and rededicated in August 2005.

The bell still rings every Sunday before the start of service at Ocean Park United Methodist Church.

 

Announcements

  • Diverse leaders’ group offers separation plan

    By Sam Hodges
    Jan. 3, 2020 | UM News

    Members of a diverse group of bishops and other United Methodist leaders gather for a group photo in Washington after reaching agreement on a proposal that would maintain The United Methodist Church but allow traditionalist congregations to separate into a new denomination. Photo courtesy of the Mediation Team.

    Mainstream UMC celebrates the unanimous, negotiated protocol that has just been announced to restructure the church through separation.  Mainstream UMC is honored to have been a part of these negotiations and our Board has unanimously endorsed the document.  We believe this protocol lays out great hope for the United Methodist Church.

    Mainstream UMC continues to be committed to the Spirit at Pentecost breathing life into a theologically diverse denomination.  We acknowledge that this diversity is not possible for some of our most conservative brothers and sisters.  This protocol allows this group to fulfill their decades-long goal of spinning off a very conservative brand of Methodism.  We grieve this loss and yet, in the spirit of Christian charity, we bless them in their new endeavor.
