Sunday Gatherings

Sunday gatherings are the primary way we gather as a church 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 gather during the week around the bread and cup 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.

    Foster Parents’ Night Out is a once a month event providing respite care for DHS foster families.

  • Self-Care Backpacks for Survivors of Sex-Trafficking

    Sex-trafficking happens throughout the world, including right here in Portland. The average age of entry into this industry is 13. This is frequently due to a lack of resources, safe and supportive networks, and/or other viable options. Self-Care backpacks make a meaningful impact on individuals who have experienced immense trauma.

  • Serve: Alpha Volunteers

    Time: 5:30 – 9 PM
