Evidently, people have been trying to leave comments, but have been unable to. Sorry, please keep trying! Maybe too much traffic?! Oh, and also people have informed me that Beaverton Grace Bible Church voice mail is full and their e-mail is full!
Although this church touts to be "Beaverton Grace Bible", the "grace" word is lacking. This is more of a legalistic church where if you don't do things their way (which is the "only" way), you will have challenges. Beaverton Grace is famous for shunning former members/attendees without giving an explanation or following Biblical principles on disagreements. You will be fine in this church if you never question the elders or pastor. Their emphasis is heavy on evangelism to the extent that you get the feeling if you do not regularly evangelize "their way", you are not a true Christian. Be wary of churches that broadcast that they are one of the only few remaining churches that preach the Word. There are true Bible-believing churches who preach the Word, don't mince the hard teachings, yet also have a balance of truth and grace and humble leaders. Do not be deceived.
Someone posted this in a comment. I love it. If you know the source, please let me know: "And then I looked around and said "somebody needs to do something about this". At which time I realized.... I AM somebody."

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed.
