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 and we invite you to start or join a community in your neighborhood of the city.
We are a church practicing the way of Jesus, together, in Portland. We gather Sunday mornings on the Eastside and Sunday evenings on the Westside. Then all week long our communities spread across the urban core of the city.

Serve: Bridgetown Kids
Bridgetown Kids is fueled by the efforts of our amazing volunteer leaders. With more kids than ever attending each Sunday, our team needs to add 25-30 new leaders to cover all classrooms at both the 10am and 5pm gatherings. Workers are especially needed in the nursery & toddler rooms. If you are interested in serving kids at Bridgetown, we would love to meet you and help get you started. All kids leaders must pass a background check.
Dates: Every other Sunday
Time: 10 AM or 5 PM
We are excited to have Dr. Doreen Dodgen-Magee come and speak on the ever-advancing, ever-changing world of technology that our kids engage with every day.
