Sunday GatheringsSunday 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 CommunitiesCommunities 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.
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.
