Who We Are

We are a congregation located in East Portland.

We are a community of friends who like to eat together, tell stories, pray for one another, worship together, and welcome others. We celebrate anniversaries and Birthdays, cry together, show up at the important times, and hold one another close through all of life’s ups and downs

We worship together, study together, pray together. We engage the bible critically, drawing on the 2000 years of Christian seekers, as well as modern day scholarship to try to understand what it means to be a person of faith. We accept that there are no absolutely right answers and there are no dumb questions. And we remain dedicated to the way of Jesus Christ, seeking reconciliation, forgiveness, love, and grace in relationships.

We take great pride in service collecting goods for the homeless, assisting the teachers and students at Lynch Wood Elementary to prepare for the school year, and tithing our collective financial resources. We practice generosity with our neighbors, knowing that the Gospel is Good News for all people. And we practice grace knowing that it was God who invited us to the table so that we might be able to invite others.

 

We are members of a progressive mainline denomination known as the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).

We are also part of the Christian Church in Oregon and Southwest Idaho, one of the 33 regions of the Disciples of Christ.
