We Eagerly Await Your Visit

The best way to experience Father’s House is to attend a Sunday morning celebration service.   While Father’s House is much more than a Sunday gathering, the Sunday celebration is a great reflection of God’s work in our church family.  We know that going to a new church for the first time can be an intimidating–even daunting–experience.  We at Father’s House want to make your visit a great one, so here is some information to help you plan your visit.

 

TIME & LOCATION

Our Sunday service begins at 10:30 AM, but feel free to come a bit earlier and grab some free coffee right in the room where we meet. Father’s House is located on the campus of Portland State University in downtown Portland; there you will not only find our Sunday gathering space but also our offices.  On Sundays, we gather at the Smith Memorial Student Union Building located at 1825 SW Broadway.  Our service is on the ground floor, and you can’t miss us, as you will find both our signs and greeters just inside the entrances. 

 

PARKING

There is free parking on the streets near and around where we meet.  You do not need to feed the parking meters as the city does not charge for parking until 1 pm.  You can also park at most truck loading zones as they normally do not apply to Sundays (check signage to be sure). 

 

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT

When you walk in, you will be greeted by warm and friendly people as you enter an atmosphere of family, joy, hope, and expectation.  We don’t have a dress code, so you are welcome to wear clothes you are comfortable in. 

 

Our worship has one purpose:  to honor and love Jesus as we encounter His presence together.  So we begin by singing with the band; the lyrics to all the songs are projected on a screen in front, so you don’t have to worry about not knowing the words.  After the worship part, we normally spend a few minutes sharing what’s happening in and around Father’s House.  Then one of the pastors will give an encouraging and hope-filled message from the Bible.   

 

CHILDREN’S PROGRAM 

We believe church should be relevant and fun for kids, so we make this a priority at “City Kids.”  We also prioritize the safety of your children, so we invite you to accompany your child to their class where you will check them in.  Our secure system ensures that only you can drop them off and pick them up. The program runs during the message portion of the service and you are more than welcome to have your children join in with City Kids.  This is for children 2 years old to 5th grade.
