Entering Into Belonging

As a congregation we are inviting you to explore what it means to belong and be shaped by our community practices of hearing and obeying the Word and Spirit, celebration, vocation, hospitality and generosity. We will have a particular eye towards how these practices bless and resist our cultural moment. 

This small group will be following the sermon series about entering into belonging and will in part be a guided discussion, interaction with each other and intentional spiritual practices.

There will be three meeting times. Two on Sundays from September 30th to November 25th and one on Mondays through the same period:

  • Sunday at 10:45am (directly after 1st service)
  • Sunday at 12:30pm (directly after 2nd service)
  • Monday at 7:30pm


Is taking this class a commitment to be a member of the church? Nope. But you are welcome to use it that way. 

Where is this going to happen? In room 101 with possible overflow.

What is going to be expected of me during this time? We will be equipping you ways to engage the material between Sundays.

I/we are already rooted in this community, should we still attend this group? We think it would be incredibly beneficial for you to come and participate.

Is there childcare? Childcare is available in Imago Kids Sunday classrooms on a first-come-first-served basis. It is limited in capacity based on our number of volunteers each week and our adult-to-child ratio. Children are welcome to stay for both of our 9am and 11am services, but please be aware there is no snack provided for kids ages K-5th grade. 

Imago Kids is doing everything within its ability to provide quality care and space for every child to attend Sunday classes. To help us prepare, please rsvp here if you plan to have your child in Imago Kids while attending this class and we will do our best to recruit enough volunteers.

Since there is no childcare option for the 12:30pm class, we would encourage families and guardians to attend the 10:45am option instead. 

For the Monday evening gathering please RSVP your childcare needs to: ellen@idcpdx.com to check for availability prior to arrival. 

Registration Information

For those with children: If you are planning on having your children in with Imago Dei Kids for both the 9:00am and 11:00am services, we want to be sure that we are prepared to serve you in that and enable your family to participate. To that end, how many children will be attending both services? And what are their ages?
