Frozen Assets Program

Frozen Assets is a program of Smyrna United Church of Christ supported through the generous contributions of members and friends of the congregation. You are welcome to help support the program financially or through in-kind gifts (food, containers, grocery bags, etc.), but financial support is not required to participate in this ministry.

Fill out the registration form (PDF).  This will help us to plan for all the special dietary needs of those participating in the program. Frozen entrees will be prepared twice a month and delivered to you at your convenience.

Please return the completed application to Angela Stierle, Program Coordinator, or Pastor Deborah Patterson.

Dr. Rev. Deborah Patterson was installed at Smyrna on December 7, 2014. Click on the photo above to see more photos and videos of this happy event.


We love books, and we love people!

There are books in almost every room of our church, Smyrna United Church of Christ, and we want to foster the love of reading for all. In a time when education is under fire elsewhere in the world, we want to stand up for access to reading for all.

We have a new "Free Little Library" (part of a growing movement) - learn more at www.littlefreelibrary.org. We have been assigned a charter number by their organization and will be included on their map in the next few weeks.

Our beautiful library was made by long-time member David Schriever (pictured here) from salvaged materials and contains novels and non-fiction. Come check it out! Take a book and bring a book that you have loved, to share....

We are a 123-year old church, located across the road from the Willamette Egg Farm on the Canby-Marquam Highway (31119 S. Highway 170), about 7 miles south of Canby, and our community is open to all!


Smyrna United Church of Christ is striving to be:

  • A place of peace where we teach the word of God and the story of God's love.
  • A spiritual haven where we accept and care for all humanity in an outreach of grace.
  • A lighthouse of God's light, where worship, teaching, learning and spiritual growth take place in community powered by thought and action
  • A Christian people, working for God's realm in ecumenical harmony with other people of faith and conviction.
