Bring the entire family

Like our Youth and Adult programs, Family programs help you connect with other Christian Scientists, challenge you to try new experiences and focus on the practical application of Christian Science. Join DiscoveryBound Outreach at Local Chapter Activities and Regional Weekend Events to see Christian Science in action with your children, family members and friends of all faiths.

Upcoming Adult & Family Events

DB Outreach: Portland Chapter – Annual Community Picnic @ Oaks Park
Sep 10 @ 12:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Come eat, visit, and stay for the afternoon. Bring your bike for a ride along the Springwater corridor or just walk along the river pathway. We’ll have an inspirational speaker following lunch, lots of good food and access to the amusement park. Feel free to come early and socialize or stay after and enjoy the park. Please bring personal water bottles, sunscreen and chairs or a blanket to sit on.

Oaks Park is just north of the Sellwood Bridge. We’ll be in Picnic area #7. Look for our banners. Entry into the park is free.

We’ll provide the main dish and drinks. Based on your last name (we’ve rearranged the order a little this year), please bring: A-G: “finger dessert” (easy to pick up and eat); H-Z: side or salad.

For anyone who’s interested in going on the rides, meet a representative after the inspirational talk to buy your deluxe all-day ride bracelet. It allows access to skating and unlimited rides on the midway, including bumper cars – but no mini golf or go carts. It’s available to everyone for $16.25. Rides close at 7PM.

By September 7th to or Facebook: Discoverybound PDX.
