Who We Are
Pine United Methodist Church is acknowledged as the "mother" church of all Japanese American Churches in the United States and there continues to be an active Japanese-speaking ministry. The English-speaking ministry, though largely Asian American, is ethnically mixed with young and older adult congregants.
In 1994 Pine UMC voted to declare itself a "Reconciling Church.” Pine UMC was the first Asian American church in the country to do so. As a Reconciling Church, we are a part of the larger Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN). The RMN is an independent, not-for-profit organization with no official ties to the United Methodist Church. However we are a part of the United Methodist tradition of social concern and action, a justice seeking, spirited-people.
