Community Worship Gatherings
(We will not be meeting on Sunday mornings for classes and services through the April 8 date set by Governor Brown. See our full COVID-19 update here.)
Sundays - 9:15am Classes
10:30am Worship Gathering
Greater Portland Bible Church is a group of diverse people from all walks of life who have agreed to center their lives on Jesus. Once a week we get together to express the unity we have in Jesus through singing, praying, hearing, and responding to how God’s story intersects our own. We meet at 10:30am every Sunday morning. Whether you consider yourself a follower of Jesus or not, you are welcome to join us as we gather to worship God, continually learning what it means to be God’s people and let Him change us into a community that reflects the heart of God by our actions…for the benefit of the world.
9:15am is our class hour where everyone in our community, from infants on up, meet to connect, learn and grow. A rotating selection of elective and ongoing classes are available for the adult community and children have the opportunity to learn and respond to God's story in an age appropriate way for both the 9:15am and 10:30am hours.
At 10:30am, youth* and adults come together for our worship gathering in the auditorium. (*Youth join the main gathering approximately every other week, otherwise they meet in the Student Center at 10:30am.)

Easter Worship Service Information
On Friday, April 10 at 7:00pm we will gather to commemorate the upside-down victory that Jesus achieved through his crucifixion and death on the cross. Childcare will be unavailable for this service.
Easter will continue our celebration of Christ’s upside-down victory gained by his resurrection! We’ll start with breakfast at 9:15am and an Easter egg hunt for kids through 5th grade at 9:45am. At 10:30am we’ll gather in the auditorium to celebrate our risen Savior in worship. Children’s classes through preschool will be held, and they will leave the auditorium at the designated time; elementary and up will stay in worship with their families. No 9:15am classes for children, youth, or adults.
In ancient Jewish culture, all children and adults participated in seven festivals every year where they were able to enjoy the broader community. At Greater Portland, four times a year all children and youth programs are closed so that families have an opportunity to worship together in the larger community. Please join us for the next Community Sunday. There are no 9:15am classes for children on Community Sundays.
