Sidewalk Evangelism: Remember to do your part in "every member a missionary." Take a stack of the Bible Study invitation cards in the foyer and share them with our neighbors in Portland. Be creative -- leave some at the counter of the post office or other businesses, stand in teams of two or more on a busy street corner and hand them to people. Brad scoped out & found some good busy locations for teams to work:

23rd & NW Johnson

Yamhill & SW 6th, 5th (Apple store)

Morrison & SW 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, Broadway, 10th

Couch & NW 22, 10th, 11th, 12th

Hawthorne & SE 37th, 34th

We also need people to help give out Bible study pamphlets when people request them. Contact Elder Brad or Elder Steve if you're willing.

Watch this Pavel Goia presentation for inspiration and helpful ideas.

June 30 - July 6, 2024: Emotional Intelligence Camp for Kids at Weimar UniversitySummer has begun, and we have fantastic news – there are still a few open slots for our upcoming Emotional Intelligence Camp for Kids at Weimar University! We want to make sure every child has the chance to join us for this unforgettable and unique opportunity.


Join us for a transformative experience where your children (ages 5-17) will develop essential EQ skills, learn to lead happy and healthy lives, participate in music, and engage in fun, impactful activities each day.


Developing emotional intelligence is crucial, as it helps children understand and manage their emotions, leading to better relationships and mental health. It also equips them with essential life skills such as empathy, self-awareness, and effective communication, fostering their overall personal and social development.


Central to our program is the renowned Nedley Health EQ curriculum, a nationally recognized resource that provides a comprehensive framework for EQ development. Through interactive sessions and hands-on experiences, children will gain practical tools to navigate life’s challenges with grace and resilience.


*Children must be accompanied by an adult.
