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 Sunday, September 29 - November 10, 2019
(No class on Sunday, November 3)
Join us this Fall as we offer new classes for high school aged youth and older.
THEOED: Brief Talks, Big Ideas
TheoEd is a faith-based speaker series that brings together leading thinkers in the church and the academy to give the talk of their lives in 20 minutes or less. They are TED-style presentations that seek to spark conversations about God, religion, and the power of faith to shape lives and communities. After watching a TheoEd video each week, we will reflect on and discuss what we have learned and what we are challenged by.
A Guide to Bible Basics
What's actually in the Bible? Where do we find the story of Moses or Jesus's Parable of the Prodigal Son? Who are the main characters in the books of Joshua and Acts? A Guide to Bible Basics provides a summary and chapter outline of each biblical book. The class will cover the basic content of the Bible to help develop a level of comprehension of the Bible's stories, poetry, regulations, and teachings.
Men’s Breakfast Club
Men's Breakfast & Bible Study meets at Panera Bread on New Garden Rd in Greensboro every Tuesday morning from 6:30 to 7:30 am. We have fellowship while we try to solve the world's problems with a little study of the Bible in between. We are currently looking at the Book of Confessions to better understand who we are as Presbyterians.
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, 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!
