We're so glad you found us.
What’s it like at SWBIBLE? Dress is casual, the atmosphere is informal, relationships are valued and the coffee is good. And kids, we have a great children’s program for you!
We're a diverse group of people—of all ages and backgrounds. We like to think that we take the “Bible seriously and ourselves lightly” and that tone is reflected in the Sunday morning experience. Many visitors arrive a little intimidated by the size of our building and the number of people in it. We are a fairly large church but we work hard to keep things simple, and maintain a small church feel.
We have joined together to form a church because we are all worshippers of the Son of God, Jesus Christ. We are people who have grasped what Christ did for us on the cross—He died to save us from the penalty (death) of our sinfulness (all have sinned). We get it. And, we really want everyone to hear and understand this truth!
We'd love to have you check us out.

1. how to get here directions and map »
We are located at the corner of Murray Boulevard and Weir Road in SW Beaverton, just up the road from the Murrayhill Shopping Center.
14605 SW Weir Road
Beaverton, Oregon 97007
2. our parking lot map of parking »
We have several parking spaces reserved for our guests. These are located in the front row, nearest the tower entrance. Often we have more visitors than our reserved spaces can handle, but there are plenty of spaces throughout our large lot. When it's time to go home, traffic in the lot can be a little slow. If you need to turn right onto Weir Road, please use the westernmost exit from the lot. If you are turning left onto Weir, please use the middle driveway. When exiting, it's best to avoid the eastern driveway, since the light at Murray Boulevard is so close and backs up quickly.
3. questions and getting connected
We have a great Welcome Center in the main lobby. Please stop by for a Visitor Gift Pack and let us know if you have any questions.
4. style of worship
It's undeniable—every church has a style of worship. Some have chosen to define theirs with terms like "traditional" or "contemporary". We highly value all of our generations worshipping together in unity. This is challenging with so many style preferences. But, it's when we humbly lay aside our own desires that our worship is truly honoring to God—no matter what the style. In the end, our goal for our worship times is to shine the spotlight, to bring all the attention and focus, on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, not on ourselves. If you leave without a clear understanding of Who we are worshipping and why, then we haven't gotten it right!
5. during the worship time
Please silence phones and pagers
Participate only as you feel comfortable
If you don't have your own, we have provided Bibles
You are our guest, please do not feel obligated to participate in the offering
Childcare is provided free of charge
6. what to wear
We'd like you to wear whatever is comfortable for you. Some of us like to take the opportunity to dress up a bit. Others of us have a more casual approach. You'll find all kinds of styles among us.
7. what not to wear
Please come unscented. Some of our members and guests may be highly sensitive to colognes, fabric softeners, etc. and we would like everyone to feel comfortable while worshipping with us!
8. come as you are
We already covered "What to Wear", but this is even more important. Don't hold off on your visit until you think you have gotten your act together. None of us have! Just come as you are. We do.
9. no expectations
You are our guest, please don't be worried that you will get "roped" into something you weren't expecting. Our only expectation for you is that you'll go home feeling welcomed and loved.
10. children's program more »
Please introduce yourselves to us at the Welcome Center. We will be happy to help you find your way to the SWKIDS Check-in area. The SWKIDS staff will assist you with kids check-in and help direct you to the right rooms. Don't worry, we aren't interested in pulling your kids away from you. If you want them to stay with you, we encourage it!
11. child check-In
Before taking your kids to the appropriate location, you’ll need to check them in. If it is your first time, head over to the SWKIDS Check-in area and stop at the front counter - one of our volunteers would be more than happy to help you! We use a program called KidCheck at all of our events. You can either create an account on KidCheck ahead of time or we can help you create one upon arrival. If you would like more information about our kids programs, please visit this page.
12. dine with us
If you visit us during REUNION, our gathering on Sunday nights, you'll also have the opportunity to dine with us. An amazing team of volunteers serves a great meal at 5 pm, followed by an evening worship time. It's informal, comfortable and convenient—you don't have to cook on Sunday nights! It's a great way to get your week started!
13. re-visit us
First time visitors sometimes feel overwhelmed by the amount of people they see here. Repeat visits help! We also offer informal receptions for vistor's, called "Opening Night." It's a great way to learn more about us in a small, comfortable setting. learn more »
14. preconceived notions
If you have listened to Pastor Scott online or on the radio, you might think he's a tall man. He isn't.
