Unprogrammed (Silent) Meeting for Worship

We meet at The Architectural Heritage Center in SE Portland at the corner of SE Grand
Ave and SE Alder Streets.

Our meeting times have also changed from Sunday evenings to Sunday Mornings.
Worship starts at 10 AM and goes until approx. 11:30 AM. The first 15 minutes is
normally devoted to singing. We meet upstairs and the front door is "tended" - in other
words, if you arrive within 15 minutes of meeting time, you will be greeted at the door.

If you arrive later, you will have to ring the bell for entrance and require someone to
come downstairs and let you in. Please be considerate and arrive in time to settle into
Worship with us by 10 AM.
