Events and Calendar


Epiphany Celebration, January 2, 2022 — 
One worship service at 10:30 am

We will celebrate the arrival of the Magi to worship the Christ child, as they followed the star from the East. Worshippers will receive a new 2022 Epiphany star with a special word to guide them through the year. Do you remember your 2021 word? What has it meant to you as this year has unfolded?

December H.O.M.E. Project — “Birthday in a Bag”

For December, we will provide an opportunity for struggling families to enjoy a birthday celebration. Take a H.O.M.E. Bag now available in the CE Lobby, add to it boxed cake mix, frosting, birthday candles, (optional) birthday paper goods and/or favors, and decorate the blank birthday card inside! Return it by January 9, 2022 and we’ll distribute them through local schools and/or the Salvation Army.

Children’s Library & Play Space

Through the generous mission grant, FPCRO will install a new children’s space in the church to welcome the public to a safe and nurturing area throughout the week. If you would like to be involved in the team planning this space, please contact Pastor Emma, or call the church office.

S.T.A.G.E. Youth Sunday at FPCRO

On January 23, join us for worship at 9 am or 11 am in the sanctuary at FPCRO for a service led by S.T.A.G.E. youth from the four partner congregations. The students are writing all the liturgy, will offer the music, and deliver the sermon. We’re looking forward to an opportunity to welcome all the churches together in worship. The services at 9 am and 11 am will be identical. When you come for worship, be ready to order your Super Bowl Sub Sandwiches as part of STAGE’s fundraiser. See the additional below for more info on Subs!
