Fellowship & Events

Our Deacon / Congregational Life committee is dedicated to providing fun and exciting social activities within the life of our church. Activities include movie and game nights, karaoke nights, trips to Angels games, regional day trips and so much more. They are supported by our long-term groups: Flagship, Windjammers and Women Connected, who together provide activities for all ages of adults. Contact the church office for more information.


Forthcoming Events: 
FPCO Contemporary
Sundays  |  10:00 am  |  Flippen Chapel
 
Led by Vanguard University graduates Chris Dickens and Shane Costa, our new Contemporary Worship service is an addition to our Sunday morning program. Our Contemporary service provides a worship experience geared more towards young families and college students looking for a church home. Of course everyone is welcome, and our Traditional service will continue as ever for those who prefer the familiarity of hymns, choral music and a traditional liturgy. The great part is whichever service you attend you will still have the opportunity to send your kids to our awesome Kid’s Cove, enjoy fellowship together, and attend Pastor Winston’s Faith & Practice class at 11:20 am!

Lydia Circle
Saturday  |  November 16th  |  10:00 am  |  McAulay Hall
 
Our 3rd Saturday study for this year is from the book Love Carved in Stone by Eugenia A. Gamble: What would it mean to consider the Ten Commandments not as a harsh list of what not to do but, instead, as a “love letter” from a loving God? A fresh embrace of the Ten Commandments (or Words), may ultimately contribute to the restoration of ourselves and our communities and the furthering of the gospel in the world. “Moral behavior matters, not simply because immoral actions can anger or disappoint God, but because principled behavior is how love becomes real, both toward God and in community.” Love Carved in Stone is a Bible study that helps us re-frame the way we look at and live in the world. Come see what Women Connected’s Circle group is all about.
