Portland Communities

Portland Communities are groups for men, women, marriage and family, singles, young adults, youth, Bible study, and various activities.

Portland Communities are a great environment for growth, connection, and a place where our mission as a church is best lived out: to move closer to God through a saving, growing, and transforming knowledge of Jesus.

College & Young Adults

We are a community of college and young adults (18–29) that seek to make a difference by faithfully serving God’s purposes. This is a place to connect, grow deep in faith and engage in community with each other. Join one of our small groups by visiting the Portland Communities page. In our small groups, you will find a relaxed environment and rich friendships with other people your age and season of life.

Encounter: Singles

We are a community group of 30s and 40s committed to growing in Christ and growing together. We do this by studying God’s Word and applying it through practical means, including small groups, service projects, accountability, and serving the needs of each other. Our group is also committed to having fun! There are many game nights, impromptu and scheduled events throughout the year to get to know each other! We strive to provide a safe environment where we are loved and challenged to grow equally, using both truth and grace. We want you to know that being single does not exclude you from thriving and fulfilling God’s call on your life..

Women

Portland Women is a beautiful, multifaceted group of women from different backgrounds and seasons of life. As women who understand that we are magnificently designed on purpose by our Creator and that connected and united as one, we are stronger and shine brighter…revealing the light of heaven in our homes, communities, and the world! It is our desire to bridge women to Christ through weekly groups and events by studying God’s Word together and equipping women to use the gifts and talents God has given them.

Our regular gatherings:

Women’s Tuesday Bible Study

Tuesday, 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM

It’s hard to know a God we don’t understand, and it’s hard to love a God we don’t know. But our God wants to be known and loved, and He’s told us a lot about Himself in the pages of His Word.

About the Study: He’s Where the Joy Is

Join Tara-Leigh Cobble in this video study as she breaks down the intimidating doctrine of the Trinity. You’ll discover a beautiful, foundational view of our Triune God that will transform how you relate to Him. Understanding God’s three-in-oneness and each of the Persons of God individually—Father, Son, and Spirit—will lead you to deeper intimacy with God and greater joy in knowing Him!

Benefits of this Study:

  • Discover and better understand an intimidating doctrine that is so vital to our faith.
  • Explore the Trinity as a whole and examine the role and work of each Person of the Trinity individually.
  • Understand how to apply the truth of who God is in the Trinity to your everyday life and how you can relate to Him.

Worship

Portland Christian Center’s worship community leads the church in worship through music. We believe that music is a language that communicates the joy and hope of the Christian life. It is an expression of our worship and devotion to the one true God. There are opportunities for you—no matter your age—to use your gifts and talents instrumentally and vocally to glorify God.

Missions

Taking the whole gospel to the whole world!
God is always working to extend the whole gospel to all people and all places. Graciously, He has allowed Portland Christian Center to participate with Him in this mission. And now we are expanding our reach into new areas around the world and providing new ways for the Portland Christian Center family to get involved.
