Portland Church may be tied to dozens of abuse victims

Faith News Note:

A 29-year-old woman filed a civil lawsuit this week against one of state’s larger churches — the Apostolic Faith Church in Portland for abuse that occurred 20 years ago in the day care center. A 1994 suit against the church pointed to the same abuser. No charges have been made by authorities. The woman stated in a press meeting, “I know at least a couple – at least a couple – that three, four, five – that were in the day care that were abused along with me. As far as the church here in the Northwest, personally, I know of dozens. Over the last couple of months I’ve found out many, many more, and it’s about time that it stops.”
