Here's what to expect at First Baptist Umatilla

Stepping into an unfamiliar place for the first time can be a little intimidating and maybe even uncomfortable for some people – especially when it’s a church. We get that and have prepared our weekend services to be enjoyable and hassle-free. When you visit First Umatilla, you can expect to feel welcomed and accepted from the moment you step through the door. Starting in the event center, you’ll probably notice people from all different backgrounds and walks of life – maybe even some people you know. While in the event center or the worship center, volunteers will always be close-by to answer any questions and make you feel welcome any way they can.

Once in the worship center, you will be encouraged by our passionate live-band and worship team, relevant and inspiring presentations of the Gospel, and life-changing prayer times. You will notice that First Umatilla is a contemporary, up-beat, and simply put, fun, but more importantly, that it’s a Christ-centered church. That’s something we never apologize for – our church revolves around the message of Jesus and works hard at communicating it in a way that is authentic and life-giving.



We hope that by visiting our church, you will know and experience the love of God.


We desire to be an authentic, welcoming community who loves each other and we would love for you to be a part of it.

Our Services

Our services usually last about an hour and involve singing together, hearing God's word and responding to Him together.


Whether you are new to church or have been around for a while, whether you want to dress up or dress casual, you are always welcome here at FBCU.



Your kids will love our Sunday morning kids ministry, where dedicated volunteers offer a fun, age-appropriate worship and small group experience. Check-in kiosks are located in the Event Center directly in front of the FBCU kids area. Parents can also pre-register below to save time.
