On Easter Sunday, April 9th @ 10:30 am, we celebrate the Resurrection of Christ! We will have a full choir and brass section joining the organ in making a joyful noise. The service will also have a moment to flower the cross with flowers brought from home or provided by the church. Afterward, we will have a free Easter Egg hunt to share the joy with the children!

You can attend these services in person at SW 1200 Alder St. Portland or online at


We look forward to having you, your family, and your friends join us this year for Holy Week and Easter!
