If you have questions or comments after your first visit with us, please let us know!

Portland First is located just off of Highway 26 at the Sylvan exit (71B). Get directions »

As you enter our campus you will find all designated visitor parking spots located in Lot A. From there you can enter the sanctuary under the awning at the Level 4 entrance. If you park in one of our lower level parking lots, feel free to catch our shuttle to the Level 4 entrance.


Portland First has a “come as you are” atmosphere. You will see some dressed up; some dressed casual. We have no expectations for attire.

When you enter Level 4 you will be greeted by a friendly member of our First Impressions Team who will be happy to help you find wherever you need to go. Kids’ and youth classes happen on Level 2 from 9:15 a.m. – 10:15 a.m. Students grades 6 thru 12 join us for worship on Level 4 at 10:30 a.m. Children 1st grade thru 5th grade go to Kid City for a fun and engaging worship environment of their own, and preschoolers stay in their classrooms. Of course, you’re welcome to keep your kids with you in worship (but they’ll probably enjoy our age-level ministries much more!).

It is our goal to provide a safe and fun learning environment for your kids. Therefore, all teachers and caregivers undergo a thorough background check before they’re allowed to serve with children. Your kids are safe at Portland First!


Our Sunday gatherings offer inspiring live worship and Biblical teaching that is relevant to everyday life. Take a look through our recent messages to get a feel for what a service is like. Each service lasts about an hour and fifteen minutes.
