A Closer Look

Church Work Day: “Many hands make light work.”  On Saturday, October 22 from 9-3 we will be having a church clean up day. We will be doing some pruning, spreading bark, setting up a new play structure and just making the place look great on the outside. We will be in need of some wheel barrows and clippers. Plan to stay an hour, two, or spend the whole day with us. Any questions please contact Barry Desbiens (503) 754-8929.

Baby Shower: Ladies, please join us on Sunday October 23rd following service at The Place’s home 35 Meikle PL as we celebrate the coming of Andrea & Aaron Burnett’s baby boy!!! To contribute to a group gift please call Janice at: (503) 896-0368.


Congregational Meeting: We would like to invite you to join us following our service on Sunday October 30th as we have our congregational meeting where we will be talking about our staffing and what the plan is and where we are at in that plan. We invite you to come, be a voice and give your input. Lunch and childcare will be provided.
