The Drum Major Scholarship Fund is accepting monetary donations to assist in our efforts to support our youth.

is still available for a mere $15.00 donation to the Williams-Allen Scholarship Fund.
The Gospel CD production of "Heavenly Brother", produced by Patrick Lamb Productions, features local Portland talent; Julianne Johnson, Liv Warfield, Linda Hornbuckle, The Brown Sisters, Janice Scroggins, Patrick Lamb and a host of other very talented singers and musicians.  Education is key to the success of our youth!  Please help us to support them to become what God wants them to be.

Have you been disillusioned with the ‘institutional’ church?  Have you wished for a service that was ‘short’, but Christ-centered, Bible-instructed, spirit-filled, multi-cultural, family and people-oriented, and yet gives you time on Sunday to have the rest of the day to yourself?  Has your life been broken and you are re-building?  Do you need to know you’re forgiven so you can lead a productive life?  You can do this with brothers and sisters in Christ, from all walks of life that will care about you and are not going to judge your past, but celebrate how God is working in your life!

Jesus said to us: “…go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit….and I am with you always even to the end of the world
.”  (Matthew 28:19-20)

The Alphae service will start at 8:15 a.m. and end by 9:15 a.m.  Invite someone to come with you!

We also offer Church School at 9:45 a.m. and a traditional “Betae” worship service at 11:00 a.m..  On Wednesday evenings we have a 30-minute prayer meeting and 45-minute Bible Study.

“Rebuilding lives, family, community, and embracing all of God’s people.”
