When: Sundays @ 10am
Where: Grout Elementary ( 3119 SE Holgate Blvd, Portland, OR 97202)
What to Expect: When you arrive at Oaks Parish for our Sunday gatherings you'll walk through the front doors of Grout Elementary and be immediately greeted by a tile mural that says welcome. We hope that message resonates as you grab a cup of coffee from Rose City Coffee Co, meet people in the hallway, and experience the presence of God in worship. Entering the historic auditorium for worship you'll receive a worship guide that will walk you through the liturgy and serve as an artifact that you can take home for further reflection. Below are further details and we look forward to seeing you!
Children: Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Amongst our children we seek to cultivate an ultimate love for Jesus that they may be shaped by His ultimate love. Our Acorns ministry provides a caring environment for infants and a fun, formative, and missional experience for pre-schoolers. Intentionally we invite all school-age children to remain in the service to experience the liturgy for themselves. The different components of our liturgy and the rhythm itself is very akin to the rhythms students experience each day at school. Through our time of worship, school-age children grow up with an imagination for God's kingdom and experience transformation alongside family and friends.
