Sunday GatheringsSunday 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 CommunitiesCommunities 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. We also scatter throughout the world to plant churches and partner in justice work.
We are a church practicing the way of Jesus, together, in Portland. Our Sunday gatherings are in the west end of downtown, but our communities are spread across the urban core of the city.
