Our History...

Newman United Methodist Church has been a congregation in Grants Pass since 1857.  We were the first church in Grants Pass and one of the first in Josephine County. In our more than 130 year history we've gone through a lot of changes and impacted countless lives in our community and around the world. Newman UMC, is the leading progressive christian presence in Grants Pass. We have a long history of being inclusive and welcoming to people who did not feel welcomed in other churches.
