Meet Our Pastor

Pastor Margot R Thompson

After I was born in New Albany, Indiana, and with my mother an RN, my father a career military officer and my younger brother, we moved several times.  We lived in the Southland while my dad got his military education.  We lived in Europe over nine years of my young life.  My family settled in Middle Tennessee when my dad retired.

Completing my theological education in 2001 at Asbury Theological Seminary, I have served in churches in California, Kentucky, New Mexico and now in Oregon.  I am serving Banks Community UMC.  This part of Western Washington County, Oregon is beautiful and affords a pace of life that is just right for me.

My intention for the church in this area is to serve the people of the community – all ages and all life-situations.  Find out more about our worship, service and fellowship opportunities!
