We welcome all to our worship services and pray that you feel the presence of Christ when you worship here. Don't hesitate to contact one of the pastors with questions before your visit or after you attend.
What to Wear
God’s house does not have a dress code. Feel free to wear clothing that makes you feel comfortable. You’ll see worshippers wear everything from casual clothes to dresses or suits during worship services. Come as you are!
FPCRO has three parking lots. The “west lot” is on Hendrie Boulevard, the “east lot” is on W. 6th Street, and the “north lot” is on S. Pleasant Street. Ample parking for individuals with mobility challenges is available in the “east lot” on W. 6th Street.
Entering the Church Building
Sunday mornings a receptionist is in the Christian Education Lobby (at the “east lot” entrance) to greet visitors and make all who enter our doors feel welcome. The receptionist can direct you to the chapel or sanctuary. Greeters are also available to answer questions.
Two worship services are offered on Sunday, except on occasions as noted. The 9 am service is held in Evans Chapel and the 10:30 am service is held in the sanctuary. Communion is served the first Sunday of the month, and all are welcome at the Lord’s Table! As you enter the chapel or sanctuary you will be greeted by an usher who will provide you with a worship bulletin. During each worship service a Friendship Pad is passed for all worshippers to sign to get to know the names of those seated around you. We invite visitors to leave us some contact information so that we can reach out to later in the week and send you a small welcome gift.
Children and Childcare
Children are always welcome to remain in worship. At the 10:30 am service in the rear of the sanctuary, we have a Prayground. The Prayground is a dedicated space for children and families to feel comfortable during worship, offering quiet activities, books, and seating for children as they absorb the service in their own way. Worship bags are also provided to engage children during the service in their pew and a Time with Children is part of the 10:30 am worship service. Most weeks, Joyful Journeys Sunday school takes place following the Time with Children in the Christian Education wing of the building. Childcare is available in the nursery during both morning services from 8:45 am until 12 noon for infants, toddlers and preschoolers for those who prefer it. Pagers are provided to parents, and please let us know if your child has food allergies. For directions to our nursery, please check with the receptionist. Diaper changing tables are available in the narthex bathroom just outside the sanctuary, in the Girls' preschool bathroom near the nursery, and in the nursery itself.
What Happens After Church?
After worship services, please join us for refreshments and fellowship in Kirkman Fellowship Hall, located downstairs (an elevator is available). Restrooms are located in the sanctuary narthex, Kirkman Fellowship Hall, and the Christian Education Lobby.
