Adult Education

Connect, Learn, Grow

GP Grow 

Greater Portland is committed to helping people follow Jesus together. GP Grow is an educational opportunity intended to help you follow Jesus and to equip you to help others follow him. We hope to offer two or three terms of GP Grow over the course of a year. Each term will be six to nine weeks and offer several class options, each of which will benefit your life and ministry with Jesus.

Check back for information on the next series of classes.


Sunday Adult Classes 

Adult classes meet on Sunday mornings at 9:15am. Their purpose is to exalt Jesus and to keep Him at the center of our lives. Our desire is to equip and encourage people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. It is also an opportunity for people to connect in a smaller setting beyond the large church gathering.

We have ongoing classes that meet throughout the year as well as four to six-week elective classes to help people know Him better, understand and apply the Word to everyday living and to learn life skills for living in the family of Jesus as well as in our homes, neighborhoods, workplaces and community. 

No registration is necessary for our Sunday classes unless otherwise noted. You are welcome to simply show up any Sunday and give them a try. We certainly hope you do!

In the Grip of Grace (by Max Lucado)

Hosted by Connection Point
Facilitated by Don Westerberg
Deschutes Room

Beginning January 9, 9:15am in the Deschutes Room we'll begin a study of Romans, using Max Lucado's book In the Grip of Grace. We'll be using a video series, spending two weeks on each video and section of the book so we aren't rushed in our discussion time.

Exchange the pressure of accomplishment for the peace of God’s grace. When the world demands, "achieve, succeed, earn," God says, "lean on me, trust me, believe me." That is grace. And that is what God offers: unconditional acceptance of a believing heart. Your heavenly Father loves you enough to hold you in his grace.

Pastor and New York Times bestselling author Max Lucado will help you: release a false sense of self-sufficiency; rest in God’s unbending and unending gift of grace; and remember that God is for you and will carry you through every circumstance. Today, leap from the cliff of self-sufficiency and land in the strong arms of the Father who loves you...the Father who catches you—every time—in the grip of His grace.

Join us in the Deschutes Room Sundays at 9:15am


Hosted by: The Come and See Class
Taught by Dick Middlebrooks
Mt. Bachelor/Mt. Hood Room

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ...I therefore...entreat you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called. (Eph 1:3, 4:1)

Join us as we unwrap and realize the astonishing gift of each of these blessings described in the book of Ephesians and how they equip us, as the unified church, to live out God's eternal purposes.
