We meet on the second Thursday of each month at 7pm except in August (we have a picnic) and December (we have a party). We are now doing hybrid meetings so you can choose to come in person or participate via Zoom. We meet at our new location, Creator Lutheran Church, 13250 SE Sunnyside Rd in Clackamas. Everyone is welcome to attend!
Members can find recordings of past meetings under the Member Pages tab.
