I live 1 block from The Old Church. What seems to be a quaint little place in the middle of a bustling city, is a angry vicious staff, bent on prejudice and distrust of the neighborhood that supports them. I am what you would call a good-deed doer. I walk my two small dogs all over SW Portland, and acquaint myself with the neighbors. When drug dealers begin to linger on our corners, or violence occurs on the street, I am the one to call the police, and wait until their help arrives.

I have also always been a person that tries to help lost animals. Tonight, at about midnight, I noticed a very small lost dog, alone on 11th street near The Old Church. I called it to me, and it came over and tried to play with my dogs. It was a very cute, sweet little Pomeranian. I could not however get the dog to let me put my hand on it, so I could try and find its owner.

As I was trying to catch it, on the lawn in front of The Old Church, a man poked his head out of the building. I said, "Sir I need your help." "Can you help me with this lost doggie." He glared at me, said, "NO!" And started to close the door. I asked again, and said please, and asked if he had some rope or something I could use to catch the dog. He said, "Your a dog person, why don't you do it?" I said, "Sir, I'm just asking for a little help, its someones little doggie." He didn't care, said "We've been having problems with dogs." And he started to come towards me in a threatening manner. I didn't react to this, but he did decided to go back up to his porch. My dogs are small, but not that small. I said, "That's a great attitude coming from the Church." He said, "Its not a Church its a historical building." I mentioned that we have to share this world, and that I just needed a little help. He then closed the door.

So now I am doing my part for the rest of my neighbors. The Old Church is just a building, and your money spent there goes to heartless people who despise that the people who have brought vitality to this corner of Portland.

Other complaints are that the church has no parking of its own, and the large events there often take up what limited street parking there is in this crowded neighborhood. They are so interested in the neighbors respecting them, but they have show none whatsoever.

And for the record: I also clean up after my dogs and at times other peoples dogs if I notice some waste that needs picking up. That being said, there are hundreds of dogs walking all over this block all day and there is very very little animal waste ever. Lots of trash and broken glass, but I wouldn't blame the dog owners for that.

this church on 11th avenue used to be an active church with a congregation, but now it's just rented out for weddings, concerts, and other events. It's a very lovely church for getting married in, which makes it more convenient because then you don't have to be counseled. At any rate, in the summer they have lunch time concerts, so brown-bag it and have fun!

PROS: quaint, cheaper than other places, convenient location
CONS: kind of looks like any other church

The Old Church in downtown Portland is beautiful setting due to its gothic and ornate architecture. No longer used as a religious venue, it is the ideal place to rent for wedding ceremonies and such whether you are spiritual or agnostic. The backdrop is a grand pipe organ that creates such an amazing view that there is little need for extravagant decor. They also have a parlor room that can be used for receptions or other such event.
