Sunday Gatherings

Sunday gatherings are the primary way we gather as a church around the bread and cup, to worship together, learn the Scriptures, pray for one another, and create space to hear from the Spirit. We also gather in similar age groups and stages of life to grow together.

Bridgetown Communities

Communities are the primary way that we scatter during the week to be the people of Jesus in our city. In communities, we are practicing the way of Jesus, together, in Portland and we invite you to start or join a community in your neighborhood of the city.

  • Kids Pizza Party

Once a quarter we have a party with our Kids Leaders where we watch a movie, eat pizza and ice cream, and play games! These events are free and will hopefully provide time for you and your spouse to get dinner or enjoy quiet time at home! These events are open to all kids in Grades K – 5.
