A Place to Belong at B4Church

GROUPS

Everyone needs a place to belong. Our Community Groups provide a place where you can connect with others with similar interests or in a similar phase of life.

If you are looking to join a group, you can find our current open groups below. New groups start as often as people are ready to lead, so if you can’t find a group that meets your needs, consider starting one!

COURSES

Courses are more than a way to learn. They are an opportunity to connect with others and gain new knowledge.

We offer several different courses throughout the year. They range in length from 4 to 9 weeks. They cover a range of topics and are open to anyone over 18.

START A GROUP

Right now, more than ever, people are craving community. Our Adult Ministry Team is looking for hospitable, friendly people who can start new Community Groups. You don't have to be a theologian, biblical scholar, or pastor. You just need some time and a heart to love others. We are looking to start some groups that are more discussion based and others that are less formal and simply focused on an activity or interest.

If you are interested in starting a new group at B4, please fill out this form! After you have filled it out, one of the community groups pastors will reach out to you to set-up a time to meet with you. If you have any questions, please email groups@b4church.org.

Discussion Groups

If you’re looking for a place to discuss what you’re learning about God as you get to know others, discussion groups are a great place to be. These groups meet regularly to talk about a book of the Bible, the current sermon series, or a book that they’re reading together. These groups aim to learn and grow together, and have a great time doing it!

Interest Based Groups

Interest Based groups are made up of people who enjoy doing a particular activity together. It could be running, knitting, hiking, drinking coffee, shopping, the possibilities are endless. These groups are a great way to meet others with similar interests. If we don’t have a group for an activity you love, we invite you to start one!

Intercultural Groups

Intercultural groups give you the chance to connect with people from other cultures, whatever your background. Whether you’re from Portland or Peru, Beaverton or Bhutan, Tigard or Taiwan, we recognize that every culture reflects aspects of God’s character. The Kingdom of God is diverse, and we want to celebrate that by coming together and learning from one another.

Language-Specific Fellowship Groups

If you are looking to engage in community and speak a language other than English, we invite you to join a language specific fellowship group. These gatherings look a little different for each language group. But all groups spend time in fellowship, praying and worshiping, growing and serving together . Currently we offer language specific groups in Chinese, Korean, Bhutanesee, Spanish, and Russian. If we don’t offer a group in a language you speak, we would love to help you start one!
