Bulletin Announcements and upcoming events

 

THIS SUNDAY (MAY 19) AT OPCRC...

  • Today is Disability Emphasis Sunday. Our services this morning are designed to encourage us to see the image of God in each person and to welcome their presence and their gifts in this church body. When we reject self-sufficiency and instead work to include others completely, we proclaim the gospel: Christ and Christ alone. OPCRC has a Disability Concerns Team that helps our church support and include people with disablities. Team members include: Chad Boersma, Lisa Cavanaugh, Larry Iwema, Tami Kuipers, Sharon Reusz, Becky Vande Kamp, Dan Vander Plaats, Kim Van Ryn, and Katie Vree. 
  • Our Hymnsing and Potluck is this evening! We will have a potluck at 5:00 pm and our hymnsing service at 6:00. Bring a family-size side dish or dessert!
  • Quiet Activities for your child’s use during the service are available in the inner lobby.
  • Listening packs are available at the information center if you need hearing assistance. If you need help, please ask the information center attendant.
  • CDs and DVDs of the worship service are located in the outer lobby. You can also watch video of the sermons on our website at orlandchurch.com. Our services are also streamed live each Sunday on our facebook page or YouTube (orlandchurch).  

NURSERY

Nursery is available during our worship services – we have nurseries for infants, crawlers, and toddlers. Please visit our nursery suite area and check in your child at the kiosk for the appropriate nursery. A family lounge and feeding rooms are located across from the nurseries if you’d like to utilize them during the service.

Sunday School meets each Sunday at 9:40. K-4th grade starts off with singing in E/F, and 5th-12th grade kids begin in their classrooms. If you are visiting and your child would like to attend a Sunday School class, please see someone at the Information Center and they can direct you where to go. Sunday School is now done for the school year and on break for the summer. Classes will resume in the fall.
