Tutor Local Children

If you are interested in serving our community through tutoring, please contact .
The Upside-Down Kingdom Art Show
Pop on out to the lobby Sunday to see art on display by our very own Greater Portland artists. These art pieces have been specifically created in response to, and in meditation of, the Luke scriptures that we’ll be studying as a church the Sundays leading up to Easter. May you see Jesus and be challenged to live in his upside-down Kingdom through God’s word and this art.
