Bread & Wine
A community ruled by the love of Jesus, committed to loving both God and our neighbors.
Until further notice, Bread and Wine will not be gathering on Sundays due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We have several members of the congregation that fall in the high risk category due to their compromised immune systems, and this is a way for us to love and serve them well.
Instead, we will instead be live-streaming the service on Sunday mornings at 10:00 through Youtube Live, and we would encourage you all to join us for a short liturgy, a message, and a corporate time of communion. We encourage you to join us at 10:00 so that we can still participate in the service together, even though we are far apart. Click below to follow us on Youtube and find our stream.
The fact we aren’t gathering corporately does not mean that we are still not able to be the church. There are several things that we can still do as a body, even though we are scattered.
1 – We can look for ways to be a blessing to the people in need around us. Use FB or Nextdoor neighborhood websites, even put on a sign on your door to people know you’re available to help. Some of us are providing breakfasts and lunches for families who can’t afford to have their kids eat at home during school hours, others are running errands for older folks in their neighborhoods, etc. Here’s a volunteer form that might give you ideas (or simply volunteer through them).
2 – Those of you who are in small groups, please stay connected to support and pray for one another. Throughout this time, our group leaders are finding creative ways to stay connected using online tools like Zoom meetings and Marco Polo. Please engage with your groups to stay connected with the body!
3 – We will continue to work to gather items for refugees in the city. While the collection list has changed, we will still be gathering things for refugees in Portland. We will be updating you all regarding how and when we will be collecting items, but they will be gathering items like wrapped toilet paper, disinfectant spray and wipes, rice, and canned/dried beans.
4 – We can still give to support the mission of the church. Even though we aren’t meeting, we still need support to continue the work of ministry in the city. https://breadandwine.org/giving/

Our worship gatherings happen every Sunday at 10:00 am. You can expect a welcoming environment whether you are familiar with Christianity or just beginning to explore the Christian faith. You will be invited to sing along and interact with the teaching, but feel free to just come and observe.
