Belluschi designed Central Lutheran Church with ample space for worship, fellowship, education, and administration.

In 2015, these spaces are used by over 40 community groups, in addition to the congregation, on an annual basis.

Music

Musical groups ranging from Oregon Pro Arte Chamber Orchestras to the Portland Ukelele Choir utilize the church space for rehearsals and annual concerts.  With a growing sense of being a true Community Building, Central Portland was blessed to work alongside our community partners this last year to receive a new grand piano for the Sanctuary.

Children

Each week dozens of children gather in our Northeast Indoor Park for play and entertainment. A multitude of young families gather upstairs to enjoy Music Together programs several times a week. We create a space of joy and praise for the children from all over the greater Portland area who come to play and sing.

Community Gathering

From a weekly card gathering to monthly meetings, Central has hosted groups like Portland's Rain of Glass for years.

And More . . .

Additional Community partners include: Satori Men's Chorus; 350PDX; EcoFaith Recovery; PDX Vox; Bells of the Cascades; Portland Columbia Symphony Orchestra; Portland Lesbian Choir; Portland Symphonic Choir; and many more.
