Young Adult Ministry

Food, hikes, coffee, God discussions, and other activities of mystery and wonder. Join us on the first Saturdays at 9:30am for coffee/discussions. And third Sundays after church for activities.

Women's Ministries

Mt. Scott Church believes each woman brings with her an aspect of the image of God that's missing when she is not with us. We invite participation of women of all ages, 18 and over to our events. We are richer as the generations come together. Here's a sampling of the ways you can connect with God’s Word and with each other.
Women's Bible Studies

September through May our women have two weekly opportunities for study and fellowship. Contact the office (503.771.1195) for information on the current study topics.

Tuesday mornings (9:15-11:00) meet in Quad 4 at MTS
Wednesday evenings (7:00-9:00) meet offsite.

uPLift (Ladies in Fellowship Together)

Women's uPLift Event
Once a month we offer a social gathering designed around a variety of interests – a great way to spend time together as women and providing good opportunity to invite friends.

Typical activities include hiking, going to tea, visiting local landmarks, enjoying a progressive dinner, and our best attended event – Christmas dinner.

Men's Ministry

Wednesday Morning Prayer
7:00-8:00 AM
All men are invited to join us as we pray together for the needs within our lives, our families, church, community and country.
Men's Retreat at the Coast
The MTS men make at least one weekend retreat each year to the Oregon Coast. This is a great opportunity to build relationship and find refreshment in God’s incredible creation.
Monthly – 2nd Saturday

Devotions 7:30 — Breakfast 8:15
The ministry effort that began a number of years ago as New Commandment Ministry has been recreated, and expanded, into Neighbor to Neighbor which invites men and women from both the Mt. Scott Church community and our neighborhood to dedicate one Saturday morning a month to care for needs within our neighborhood particularly among the widowed and single seniors.

Find out more about N2N and other opportunities to be of service to our community on the Community Connection Center website (CCCenter-MtScott.org).

Neighbor to Neighbor

2nd Saturday each month
Devotions @ 7:30 am
Breakfast @ 8:15 am
Off to Work by 9:00 am
Contact us about N2N

Neighbor to Neighbor (N2N) matches those in need in our community with a team (3-5 people) who can help with those needs. Here’s how it works. Often a widow, an elderly couple or a single adult finds it difficult to keep their home up because of a disability, loss of a spouse or age. We assign a Neighbor to Neighbor team to help that individual or couple on a continuing basis. Teams invest four hours once a month. Their focus is on meeting the needs when they can, advocating and helping to find resources for the neighbor when the need is beyond their ability.

One of our greatest joys is the long term connections that are made between those serving and those served — sharing stories and creating lasting bonds, sharing lives.

Young at Heart

Encouraging the Faith and Fellowship of those 50+


Ways we connect…
One of the delights of retirement (early, late, or right on time) is that it gives you a little extra time to enjoy life with others. Our Young At Heart group takes faith, fellowship, and having fun seriously! You can tell the vibrancy of this group by its calendar. Here are just a couple of ways to connect with us — monthly potluck luncheons held at the church the second Thursday of each month at noon. Enjoy lunch, followed by a speaker of interest. Or connect with us for First Fridays. On the first Friday evening of each month someone’s home is opened for a shared meal and games. Our calendar is filled with opportunities for fun and fellowship with other seniors, check it out and join us!

Here's sampling of our monthly event fun…


A great resource for all issues facing senior adults.

Outreach Ministries
