C3 Church is the white building located on the corner of NE 57th Ave & NE Portland Hwy. The address is 5740 NE Portland Highway. Our vision is to know and show the life of Jesus. We understand that walking into a church for the first time can be strange, so we have done our best to help you feel at ease. Whatever your age or life story, you are welcome! We want you to know there's a place for you at C3 Church.
At C3 Church there is plenty of parking available. A member of our team will be at the front door to greet you. Once inside our foyer you can grab a cup of coffee and a snack. Our foyer area also has team members available to direct you to the kids check in desk or to the nearest restroom. We have one service each Sunday at 10A.M.; it lasts for one hour and twenty minutes. We promise not to single you out. We want you to engage with the service at the level you are comfortable. We dress casually, and sing contemporary worship songs.
Our children's ministry has three age groups: Jellybeans for ages 0-3 years, dropped off in the nursery prior to service, Star Kids for ages 4-8 years gathering in the Generations Building after the second worship song and Sky Kids for ages 9-12 years, meeting in the Community Building after the second worship song. At C3 Kids the children engage in fun and age appropriate activities including a bible story, craft, games and free play time.
