We believe that life happens in the context of meaningful relationships. We scatter through out the Portland Metro area, gathering in small groups to support each other, live out the teachings of Jesus, and live life together.  Our small connect groups meet regularly around common interests, life stages, or different activities. To find a group that fits you, check out our established connect groups below.

Get connected and come alive in your journey with Christ by meeting weekly in small group home communities. In these intimate home communities you can journey together with a small group of others who live close to where you live. Groups will meet together for a total of 8 weeks, allowing for deepening your relationship to God, creating meaningful personal connections with each other, and diving into how to better love and influence Portland.
