The Source Church

Knowing. Being. Doing.
Join us on Sunday 
10:30 AM 
505 E Clarendon St 
Gladstone, OR 97027


P A U L ' S  P R A Y E R for the church is that we might be "filled with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, 10 so that you may live a life worthy  of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God" Colossians1:9-10. 

Central to our faith is knowing the God in whom are faith is placed. Desiring to grow takes more than wishful thinking.  We encourage each other in having a plan for growth through Bible reading and prayer as the foundational means to increasing our knowledge of God and our intimacy with him.
Living a life worthy of the Lord is our highest pursuit, but the Word of God makes it clear we are to do that in community.  We emphasize that connecting with others is the privilege and priority for believers to encourage one another towards Christlikeness.
As faith without works is dead, so a spiritual life without service is incomplete and inconsistent.  We value the gifting that every believer has to use in the spiritual growth of Christ's Church and the spreading of the Gospel through love and service in our community and around the world.


Russ & Lisa  |  Lead Pastors

What Makes a Hero…Sacrifice
As we conclude the sermon series, "What Makes a Hero", the last character trait we are going to look at is, Sacrifice. What is God asking you to sacrifice? God ask His son, Jesus to give up his life as a sacrifice for us. Mark 10:45 says, "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his as a ransom for many". We are called to serve. Paul says in Ephesians 5, we are to walk in the way of love, just like Christ loved us and gave his life for us. Walk in the way in love and love like Christ loves us.

    What Makes a Hero…Power
    If you could have any superpower, what would it be? What would be the purpose of that power? "With great power, comes great responsibility". Today, we looked at how all power has a purpose. Ephesians 3:20 says, Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us." We have a chance to partake in this power, by trusting Him, humbling ourselves, asking Him, and pushing ourselves.

    What Makes a Hero…Honor
    As we continue our sermon series, "What Makes a Hero?". The next trait we look at is Honor. Pastor Russ, asks you a question, "What is your reputation?" Through a set of different superhero clips, we see the progression from someone who has no honor, to an individual that would give up their life because of it. "God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God" (2 Corinthians 5:21). Christ is the ultimate example of honor. So, examine yourself and ask the question, who are you when all is stripped away? And remember this, your reputation REpresenting Christ.

    What Makes a Hero…Courage
    As we begin our new series, "What Makes a Hero?" we start by talking about courage. Paul writes that he will not be ashamed of Christ but will have courage to exalt Christ whether by life or by death. "For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain" (Philippians 1:21). Being courageous is not an easy thing. Paul was in prison because of his courage for Christ. Sometimes, the most courageous thing you can do is to show up when you feel like shutting down.

    Victory in Christ
    "We are the Champions, my friends!"  How many times have you heard that song connected to an athletic accomplishment or great victory?  What about a sense of triumph or victory to your walk with God?  Do you feel like an overcomer?  Paul writes that we are more than conquerors through Christ.  Today, we see how John describes our faith as having equipped us to overcome the world.  Is your faith giving you victory in your life?

    Confident Assurance
    Have you ever had second guesses or doubts about your faith?  John addresses this  In fact, he encourages and shows us how we can walk in a confident assurance of our faith.  In this message we look at how we can be confident in God's truth as well as in His love.

    Trusting in God’s Goodness- James 1:1-18
    If God is good and generously wants to share with us His best for us, why do we have so much trouble trusting Him when life gets tough?  Dig in with us to the first chapter of this letter penned by Jesus' brother, a man who fully trusted in God's goodness, demonstrated by his dependence and life of prayer.

    Practical Faith for Real Life

    In this message we begin a new series walking through the book of James, unpacking the practical wisdom we find for living life in a way that draws us closer to our Heavenly Father and better enabling to us to honor and please Him, living in relationship with others with patience, kindness, mercy and justice.

    Exploring the Psalms- Creation and Community
    The headlines from current news center around racism issues in Virginia and the solar eclipse on August 21.  Whether it is the importance of unity in our community or God’s invitation to enjoy and join in His glory of Creation, once again, the psalms speak for us as we look at psalms of creation and community in this message.

    Exploring the Psalms- Thankfulness

    One of the first things we are taught to say as soon as we can speak is please and thank you. But while we may repeat the words, maintaining an attitude of gratitude can be elusive, and the results can be significant. In this message we look at Psalm 100 and how thankfulness can be an amazing remedy to sadness, selfishness and discontent.



 Children's ministry

Kid's are important to God and families at The Source.  They are encouraged to participate in our worship service.  We have a regular brief children's sermon called 'The D-6 Box' based on Deuteronomy 6, then the kids are dismissed during the message for their own Children's Church where they have a children's choir rehearsal or their own lesson.  All volunteers have to submit to a background check and children's ministry training.
Current Children's events: 
VBS K-6th, Splash Canyon

Youth Ministry

Our youth ministry includes both middle school and high school students.  We follow the same pattern as our church of Knowing, Being and Doing. The knowing comes through digging into God's Word and topics that impact our faith and how we live it out.  Being comes through connecting with each other through youth group, events, and various means through we which we can build each other up.  And doing is through service as many of our youth serve within the church through worship or children's ministry, as well as the many service projects which The Source takes on throughout the year.

Youth Group meets Wednesdays from 7:30-9:00pm (during normal school year)

Schedule for summer is centered on events and retreats.
