Our Services

What are services like?
St. Gabriel's 8:00 am Sunday service is a quieter traditional Episcopal Rite I service from the Book of Common Prayer with sermon and without music. We follow the Revised Common Lectionary scripture readings. Communion is offered and all ages are welcome. St. Gabriel's 10:00 am Sunday is a music-filled Episcopal Rite II service from the book of Common Prayer with sermon. Music may include traditional hymns with piano and organ, a choir, soloists, guest musicians, or a contemporary praise band. Communion is offered. Private healing prayers are available during the service. Children are welcome to join in age-appropriate church school during the service or sit in the worship space with their families. A nursery is available for children under 3 1/2 years. Youth sit in service with leaders or have class time. We have a coffee hour after both services to welcome newcomers and to foster fellowship. Special worship and fellowship celebrations are held on church holidays and special occasions. Please check our church website at www.stgabrielonline.org for dates and times.

What is the community like?
We are a creative, progressive and open-minded community of people drawn together to worship God. Our growing congregation includes people from NW Portland, the Bethany area, Beaverton, Hillsboro and nearby communities. We have many young families with children, but embrace people of all ages as members. We value multigenerational worship and friendships and encourage mentorship. We believe in the importance of good fellowship and offer frequent opportunities to get together and celebrate church holidays or other special occasions with good food, music and conversation. We believe in the importance of outreach and social justice and work together to share our time, talent and treasure with our community and the world. We offer adult education and our vital family ministry includes four church school classrooms, middle and high school youth group, art, music and drama, service projects, vacation Bible school and Communion classes. We have many active ministries that offer opportunities for everyone to get involved in worship, support or outreach.
