Who We Are

The North Site is one part of Forest Grove Community Church. Located at 102 Goerzen St. in Silverwood Heights our desire is; To be a congregation living as sent ones, bridging culture, to engage all people with the good news of transformation in Jesus Christ.

We meet regularly in each other’s homes in what we call Small Groups on Mission. The purpose of these groups is to build community, experience and model the love of Jesus, train one another in obedience, serve others and proclaim the gospel.

We also gather weekly to worship God (revealed as Father, Son and Holy Spirit) through music, prayer, scripture, and the Eucharist.

Worship Gathering

Come and join us Sundays at 10:00 AM for our worship gatherings.

What to expect:

We are a small group of Jesus followers who range in age from newborn to 80 years old. We are a casual, come as you are type congregation. Everyone is welcome to come and join us.

We believe we are weekly called out from our homes, communities, and mission, to assemble and worship God together.

We seek to form our gatherings around three words: simple, intergenerational, and participatory.

Simple: Our services follow a simple and historic liturgy. The basic outline of our service is set and we follow a call to worship, revelation of God, scripture reading, prayer, teaching, repentance, eucharist and sending. Our gatherings are not big productions, but rather reflect the personalities and gifting of our congregation.

Intergenerational: Because we believe that the church is the family of God, we think that gathering as a family is important. We hope that it is like a large extended family gathering with grandparents and great-grand babies all coming together. Our services are designed to have all people in our space together. We welcome the noise and distraction of children in our worship times. We seek not to entertain our children, but allow them to fully participate in the liturgy of the church. All ages come and gather together. We seek to forego our preferences for the sake of being together. We do not offer children’s programs or nursery. We rather expect to be distracted and believe that gathering in this way brings glory to God as His family comes together.

Participatory : Our services have content because people bring their gifts to the worship gathering. We believe that we are all called to serve one another according to our gifts (1 Peter 4:10). We hope that those who join us on Sundays are not just coming to “get something out of the service.” But are coming with something for the building up of the body of Christ.
