Sunday Assembly: Abundance of life

Join us Sunday, April 10th in lovely Lola's Room with live music from the Sunday Assembly band, inspiring sharing from your community, and a thought-provoking lecture by Dr. Lisa Sardinia!

Do these bacteria make me look fat?

Fecal transplants, probiotics, prebiotics, the “missing microbe”: The human body is made up of about 10 times more microbial cells than human cells. These symbionts live in intimate association with us and make vitamins, help digest food, battle disease-causing microbes and may influence our behavior, particularly in what and how much we eat.

After the assembly, mosey on downstairs to Ringlers for lunch and have a beer for Sunday Assembly Portland! 100% of all food and beverage sales go directly towards covering our costs.

Child care provided in the Wonder Club 10:45am - 12:45pm. Parents, please see details here.

Food Drive:    Each month, we can "help often" by supporting Team Relief with a food donation. Please bring donations of unexpired, unopened, canned or packaged food items to the donation table before the Assembly begins. Food items will be used to support those in our community who are in need. 

Sunday Assembly Portland is Free and Everyone is welcome!
