Community Worship Gatherings
Sundays - 9:15am Classes
10:30am Worship Gathering
Greater Portland Bible Church is a group of diverse people from all walks of life who have agreed to center their lives on Jesus. Once a week we get together to express the unity we have in Jesus through singing, praying, hearing and responding to how God’s story intersects our own. We meet at 10:30am every Sunday morning. Whether you consider yourself a follower of Jesus or not, you are welcome to join us as we gather to worship God, continually learning what it means to be God’s people and let Him change us into a community that reflects the heart of God by our actions…for the benefit of the world.
9:15am is our class hour where everyone in our community, from infants on up, meet to connect, learn and grow. This is also when our youth meet in the Student Center. A rotating selection of elective and ongoing classes are available for the adult community and children have the opportunity to learn and respond to God's story in an age appropriate way for both the 9:15am and 10:30am hours.
At 10:30am, youth and adults come together for our worship gathering in the auditorium.

Easter Season 2017
Maundy Thursday, April 13
On the night Jesus was betrayed, he gathered in an upper room with his 12 disciples to eat the celebrated Passover meal. Christ added a powerful Messianic significance to this important Jewish holiday as he gave his life the next day as a sacrifice for our sins. Now we invite you to walk, and eat, in the sandals of the disciples as Daniel Nessim, a Messianic Jewish leader, comes to lead us in a traditional Passover Seder Dinner and presentation on Thursday, April 13, 6:30-9:00pm in the auditorium. Ticket required for entry. Tickets ($5/person or $2.50/child under 12) on sale March 19 through April 2 in the lobby and online. No childcare.
Good Friday, April 14
Good Friday is the last Friday of Lent and marks the day of Christ’s crucifixion and death on the cross. This solemn remembrance will be at 7pm. No childcare available.
Easter Sunday, April 16
Easter will be a morning full of celebration and community beginning with an all-church breakfast at 8:30am and followed by an Easter egg hunt at 9:30am. We will finish our time together with a wonderful celebration of worship at 10:30am. Youth and elementary will be in the auditorium. No 9:15am classes.
In ancient Jewish culture, all children and adults participated in seven festivals every year where they were able to enjoy the broader community. Four times a year all children and youth programs are closed so that families have an opportunity to worship together in the larger community. Please join us for the next Community Sunday on May 28, 2017. There are no 9:15am classes for children on Community Sundays.
