A Place To Belong This Fall

    Posted Aug 22nd, 2017  

    We want everyone at Portland Christian Center to feel like they have a place to BELONG and BECOME. This requires going beyond weekend services by involving yourself in a class or a small group. Whether you are a parent, senior, youth or child, we have a place for you to belong throughout the week!

    Main Gathering: Think, Act, Believe Like Jesus

    Jesus used the analogy of fruit to teach about the spiritual growth process. He said becoming like Him is much the same as growing a crop (John 15:1-5) In Jesus’ teaching, there is always an end goal. Thinking like Jesus leads to acting like Jesus which then leads to being like Jesus. Being like Jesus means demonstrating outward life change in us that will be seen by others. Through a combination of teaching and table discussion, you’ll grow in wisdom and relationships. Join us on Wednesday nights at 7:00 PM starting September 6th as we look at ten varieties of fruit Jesus wants us to produce as proof that we are becoming more like Him!
