Bridge City Friends Meeting is a small and growing Meeting, averaging 20 individuals attending on Sunday mornings. We are ready and willing to welcome children for age-appropriate activities, although we currently have no on-going Children’s Program. BCFM rents space for worship, and fellowship on Sunday mornings at the Architectural Heritage Center in central SE Portland. We are an “Open and Affirming” member of Community of Welcoming Congregations.
Bridge City Friends Meeting was “set off” from Multnomah Monthly Meeting as a worship group in 1997, when their meeting space needs could not be met in the SE Stark Street meetinghouse. We became a monthly meeting in 2004, and joined North Pacific Yearly Meeting, the association of unprogrammed Friends Meetings in OR, WA, ID, and MT, that gathers annually. Our regional Friends organization is Willamette Quarterly Meeting, meeting three times a year for business and fellowship.
