Pumpkin Carving with the Teens

We have another fun event coming up for the teens! On Saturday, October 19 we will be carving pumpkins! The Rodrigues family has generously offered their home for us to use. They will also be providing some delicious food as well! We are asking that teens bring their own pumpkins and $5 to contribute to food. We are inviting all teens both new and existing members of our group.

RISE UP: Campus Ministry Fall Retreat

RISE UP: Campus Ministry Fall Retreat

It's that time of year again! The leaves are turning and pumpkin spice lattes are being consumed at an alarming rate which means... it's time for the Campus Ministry Fall Retreat! This retreat is an awesome opportunity for us as college students from around the northwest to gather for worship and to be challenged in our faith! We hope to see you there!

Serve the Community through Night Strike

Serve the Community through Night Strike

Every Thursday night a group of our community members put Christ’s words about serving the poor and needy into action by participating in Portland’s popular Night Strike event. Night Strike is a community gathering that mobilized volunteers/services, meets felt needs, and develops relationships that transform lives. More importantly though, it is a unique opportunity for the people of Portland to spend time under the Burnside Bridge to love people no matter what.

Lisa Johnson's Mutuality

Lisa Johnson's Mutuality

Mutuality is a Bible-based conviction that further transforms the church into the image of Christ. After years of serving in the ministry, my ambition is to foster a discussion that will tear down barriers that divide us; barriers that already serve as unnecessary obstacles to thousands if not millions of people who need to know Jesus. This is vitally important, not just for women or for singles or marrieds, but for every disciple passionate about bringing the love of Jesus to the world. Partnership without hierarchy creates strength. The incredible potential of a community of believers, unconstrained by scriptural misunderstandings, has unlimited power.
