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 way 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.

Upcoming Events

  • Build an Activity Box for a Foster Family

    In light of COVID-19, we were sad to have to cancel Foster Parents’ Night Out (FPNO) for the rest of the year—an event that is usually a treasured time of respite for busy and tired parents. To show those families love, care, and that they are not forgotten, we are building them “FPNO in a Box”! Together with your Community, sign up to build a box full of fun projects and items for kids and adults. Sign up for a family to make a box for, then drop off your box at Bridgetown on July 15th.

    Dates: Weds, July 15

    Cost: $75–125 per box

    Time: 10 AM – 12 PM

    Location: Bridgetown Church parking lot (off Tillamook)

     

  • Donate Your Kitchen Items

    As you simplify your kitchen, drop off your basic kitchen items with us! Items donated will go to Central City Concern, who help love our neighbors impacted by houselessness, poverty, and addiction, helping them into safe housing. Please reference donation list below for accepted items.

    Dates: Sat, July 18

    Time: 11 AM – 2 PM

    Location: Bridgetown Parking Lot (off Tillamook)

     

  • Bridgetown & Racial Justice Resources

    In Jesus we see a God who experiences anger at the evil in our world, who establishes justice and righteousness, and who works on behalf of the oppressed. We also see in Jesus a God who listens intently, grieves deeply, and weeps. As apprentices of Jesus, we aim to follow his example. Discover ways to listen, learn, and give to our Black and Brown brothers and sisters as we go on the journey of racial reconciliation and healing.

    Dates: Available Now

     

  • Community Guide: Phase 1

We wish to offer recommendations reflecting value for wisdom, unity, and embodied presence. Download the guide for recommendations, guidelines, discussion questions, and more.

Watch with us every Sunday.

  • Assemble a Flash Box for Foster Families

    Flash Boxes are filled with activities, gift cards, snacks, and items for both the guardians and kids. As foster families offer radical hospitality, love, and care for kids in crisis in the community, this surprise box is designed to encourage and support foster families in our area.

  • Donate Laptops and Tablets to Foster Families

    Donate your used laptops and tablets (2015 or newer with webcam and charger) for kids and families impacted by foster care. Many families lack access to a laptop or tablet, yet these devices are crucial at this time to connect kids with their biological parents, keep up with school, and check in with their caseworkers. Laptops/tablets will be cleaned, scrubbed, and safely delivered to homes by Free Geek.

    Dates: Drop off Mondays and Wednesdays

    Time: 10 AM – 12 PM

    Location: Bridgetown Church parking lot

     

  • Support Unsheltered Neighbors: Lunch Drop

    Organizations in Portland are working tirelessly to meet the increasingly high demand to provide food for our unsheltered neighbors. We want to help by hosting a no contact lunch drop. Learn more about what goes in to a lunch bag and sign up to provide a certain number of lunches each week.

    Cost: Approx $2 per lunch

    Time: 10 AM – 12 PM

  • Online Prayer

    In a world filled with anxiety and worry around the spread of COVID-19, we want to be a non-anxious presence in our city. We are now offering a number of virtual prayer opportunities, including group prayer, one-on-one prayer with a pastor, city-wide prayer through Instagram Live, and prayer and fasting with Bridgetown each Tuesday. Explore opportunities by visiting the Bridgetown Online website.

  • Prophetic Words & Dreams

    We believe that God speaks to us in the form of words, images, and dreams. In this season, a lot of you are probably hearing the Spirit speak or having dreams that may be from God. Share with us the prophetic words of encouragement, comfort, and hope that the Spirit is speaking.

    Dates: During COVID19

    How do we care for our kids during this time? Read through some helpful tips and resources for homeschooling your kids while there is no school. While this season is overwhelming and scary for many of us, this a special time that will make our relationship with our kids more special than it was before.
