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

    We want to reward our kids for modeling character traits of Jesus in our time with them on Sundays. Rather than rewarding individuals for individual behavior, we reward the entire class for good classroom behavior! 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.

    Dates: Nov 17

    Time: 6:30 – 9 PM

    Location: Bridgetown Office

    Every fall, we continue a discussion around labor ethics before the holiday season begins. This year we are excited to host Maxine Bédat, CEO and Co-Founder of zady.com, a lifestyle destination for conscious consumers. She will lead a discussion on fast fashion and its effects on human rights and the environment. The lecture will be followed by a Q&A. Invite friends and family to come learn how our shopping habits impact us individually as well as people around the world.

  • Prayer to End Violence Against Women

    We believe that prayer changes reality and moves the hand of God. And when darkness is brought to light, it loses power. November 25th is the International Day For The Elimination of Violence Against Women. It’s a UN sponsored day and it’s so important. For the last 1.5 years we have been working on putting together an event/gathering for the churches of Portland to come together and contend with the Lord over particular issues related to the violence against women on a global scale.

    Dates: Nov 25

    Time: 9 AM – 12 PM

    Location: Old Laurelhurst Church
