ORC Activities and Classes

Besides two worship services on Sunday, we have a number of educational and fellowship programs available for all ages. Below is a brief listing of such programs. Most of the classes meet from September through May. They typically begin and end with prayer and some include the singing of psalms and hymns.

This is not a complete list of classes and fellowship groups, but serves to give an idea of the kinds of programs available. Non-members are welcome and encouraged to participate in them. Times and days of the classes may vary.

Sunday Worship

The ORC has two Sunday worship services, at 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. (The afternoon service is NOT a repeat of the morning.) A nursery for babysitting infants and young children is available during the services.

Sunday School

Children ages 4-7 are taught Bible stories and Christian songs in classes which meet after our Sunday morning worship service.

Kid Disciples Club

For children ages 7-12. We meet every two weeks on Friday evenings from 7-9 p.m.

Mid-week Bible studies for adults

There are two Bible study classes. The Thursday night class meets every other week and is lead by the Pastor, and the other meets every Wednesday night. In each case, typically a book of the Bible is studied in depth in a setting where questions and interaction is a part of learning together.

Children and young peoples' Bible knowledge classes

Using workbooks and study guides, the basic content of the Bible is taught in a series of classes. Meeting one night each week, students are 7-14 years old.

Catechism class

Young people around age 14 begin attending this mid-week class in which the Heidelberg Catechism (one of our doctrinal standards) is studied. This involves memorization, some writing, and the study of Bible passages.

Women's Bible study

There are a number of different women's Bible study groups that meet either to study a book of the Bible or a subject related to Christian living. Fellowship and a variety of activities and services are often a part of their program.

Pre-confession / Membership class

Those who wish to become members of the church by profession of faith are required to take a 20-week course which involves the study of our doctrinal standards and the meaning of church membership. The Pastor teaches this course.

Pre-marital counselling

Members of the church who are planning on marriage are required to study Christian marriage in a 4 week course taught by the Pastor.

Young Peoples' group

This group is for all Young People in Grade 9 or older. Visitors are always welcome.

Our group meets for Bible study the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month at the church. We study and discuss various topics relating to the Christian faith and life. Although we may use study guides or books our ultimate authority remains the Bible.

We try to host at least one social a month which may include such activities as a trip to archery or bowling lanes, wall climbing, all-nighters in the church or a variety of other activities. Each evening will conclude with a devotional centered on the gospel.

The Young People support the Grandview Long Term Care outreach the first Sunday of every other month (call to check the schedule).

We participate in various fundraising activities, such as a dinner theatre, to raise money for a specific need. Many of us also attend retreats for United Reformed Church young people from all across Western Canada.

Saturday morning prayer meeting

Church members come together for a time of fellowship and prayer to bring our adoration, confession, thankgivings and needs to God, our heavenly Father.
