Our Christian Education for all ages is centered on learning and sharing the practices of faith together

as we build a community of companions in Jesus Christ.  Spiritual Formation, opportunities and an

expectation that we make ourselves available for the Holy Spirit to work in us and form us in the likeness

of Christ, is the goal of all our education and community building.  Our congregation's worship study &

service is intergenerational.  We are blessed to regularly have four generations gathered together in the

life of this community!

Children's Programs

Adult Education/Formation

          Adult Mid-Week Gathering meets Wednesday evenings from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm and

tackles a combination of current topical studies and bible studies.  This group follows a discussion

format and is shared leadership group.  We often host a guest speaker series during Lent along with

a soup supper. 

          Reading & Reflection is a book group that meets monthly (typically the third Tuesday at 6:45pm)

at the home of a member who lives near the church. This informal group selects a number of books

 each year to read and discuss over light refreshments and lots of laughter. For current selection see our

 monthly  newsletter. To see our current book list click here.

          Weeding & Wondering is a seasonal group that works on the gardens and grounds as they

support each other in exploring God's presence in daily life.  Winter weather can find them planning the

next phase of the outdoor meditation walk, touring a public garden for new ideas,  or taking advantage

of a clear day to maintain  the rain gardens.  Check with the church office for current schedules.

          Presbyterian Urban Network (PUN) offers regularly scheduled leadership development 

opportunities on Sunday evenings and in Saturday seminars.  These are open to all PUN Church

members and friends.   PUN helps us pursue mission and ministry on the Eastside of Portland  that our 

congregation could not undertake alone. 


Lunch Bunch is one of our newest gatherings ~

First Thursday Lunch Bunch

What is it? A no host lunch at a neighboring restaurant and time to share,

laugh, and enjoy table fellowship together.

Who can come?  Any one!  No qualifications required.  All generations,

new and long time friends are both welcome.

What's the "agenda"?  Eat a meal together, get to know one another

better, catch up on each other's lives, remember our CHPC friends who

mostly participate in our community from their homes (cards and notes are

signed - the church office mails)  help us grow closer to one another in the

Body of Christ at CHPC.

How do we find out when, where and how we get together? 

We meet every first Thursday at 2:00pm (late lunch\early dinner!) at a

place that is accessible for all.  Our schedule is published in the newsletter

and in the bulletin, and is posted in the Narthex and Social hall at the church

or call the church office.
