Adult Formation

Our faith is formed over a lifetime. It starts with learning the stories of the faith when we are small, then seeking how to apply faith to everyday life as a youth, and finally diving deep into scripture, writings, and discussion as adults. Formation also happens through community building.

We hope you will engage the process of faith formation at ORPC through one of the opportunities found below.

2nd Hour Faith Formation

11:15 am - 12 pm Sundays, March 8, 2020 - May 17, 2020

No 2nd Hour Easter Sunday April 12th

Join us this Lent Season and Spring as we offer new classes for high school aged youth and older. 


TED style presentations that seek to spark conversations about God, religion, and the power of faith to change lives and change communities.

Book Discussion led by Marti Hazelrigg

Truth Over Fear; Combating the Lies about Islam by Charles Kimball. Kimball shares simple facts about Muslim beliefs and practices that invite dialogue and movement to shared ministry and community building.


Join us as we stretch, breathe, and move through gentle yoga poses designed to improve flexibility, endurance, and relieve stress. ORPC offers beginner-friendly yoga classes twice per week. The cost is $5 per 45-minute class and classes are led by a registered yoga teacher (RYT 200). Classes are open to the public. Participants should bring their own mats. 

Knit Wits

Knit Wits, a group founded within our W.O.W (Women of Wisdom) Circle, creates and blesses prayer shawls to give to members in the community. These prayer shawls have always been an important part of the ORPC Congregation and, by continuing this mission, it allows us to provide members of our circle, church, and community with reminders of Jesus’s love and compassion. Thanks to our many donations, we have looms, needles, patterns, and yarn for anyone to participate. We meet every Tuesday at 10 am in our Fellowship House on ORPC’s campus. Regardless of experience, come knit with us!
