Christianity is being a part of a family of believers. At Christian Church, we seek to provide a variety of fellowship opportunities in different settings. All are welcome to attend the individual activities/events at either location.

Feel free to contact the individuals in charge of the ministries listed below for more information.

"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near." (Hebrews 10:24-25)


Iron Sharpens Iron

"Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another." (Proverbs 27:17)

When and Where

We pick a book of the Bible and dig deep to find its meaning in our lives. Currently, we are meeting in the Warrenton Church foyer on Mondays from 5:15-6:30 PM. Contact Jim Francis (503.470.0667) or

We invite you to drop in and say hello. Stay for the evening with no obligation. We are confident if you came back and got involved, you would find camaraderie, fellowship, and Biblical teaching during these challenging times.
