Happy Anniversary MCC Portland! Sunday, February 26
MCC Portland turned 41 on January 6 - but it's never too late to celebrate! Since January was so unpredictable, we are observing our anniversary at the end of February.  Sunday worship will include awarding the Anniversary Award and special musical guest, Marsha Stevens-Pino.
