We exist to worship God with our lives, minister wherever there is need, evangelize those who are lost, enjoy the fellowship of other believers, and encourage each other to continue to grow in the Lord.
Student Ministries Pastor: Mike Arzie or 503.524.7000
Wednesdays 6:30-8:45 pm
The Warehouse meets every Wednesday night at the church from 6:30-8:45 pm. These evenings consist of fun, food and catching up with friends. The evening is programmed with corporate worship, a time of teaching and then breaking into guys and girls small groups to study, serve and grow. Have friends that you would like to introduce to an honest Christian community? This is the perfect place!
Sundays 10:00-11:00 am
We offer a friendly, fun, challenging and exciting atmosphere. We shatter the "church is boring" stereotype and celebrate life. Every Sunday features a message and a discussion that challenge us towards spiritual maturity. Different speakers will cover various topics and book studies throughout the year.
Care Ministry Partnership
High school students and staff gather monthly to serve those in our care ministry at SWBIBLE. We cook meals, clean houses, grocery shop, do yard work, and engage in fellowship with another generation. Dates and details for each service project are announced in advance through social media.
For more info contact: Justin Vanier 503.524-7000.
The Service Station
Ready to serve in a bigger way? The Service Station is for students who want to be a part of our leadership. This is a once a month meeting where we receive training instruction in leadership and have the opportunity to plan events and serve within our ministry.
Contact Mike Arzie for dates and locations.

It is a weekend to sit by the fireplace and recenter our hearts and our lives. It is our time to get away and connect with God. It is a time to go deeper and leave refreshed and encouraged.
