From the FPCRO Vision Statement: Created in the image of God, following the model of Jesus, the Christ, and listening to and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we seek to love God with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and our neighbor as ourselves. Responding to this grace:
We envision a community that reflects our Reformed heritage, glorifying and celebrating God by:
1. Time, talents and money
2. Using God’s gifts of material goods, personal abilities and time should reflect a faithful response to God’s self giving in Jesus Christ and Christ’s call to minister to and share with others in the world. (W-5.5004, Directory for Worship).
How do I get involved? Because we are called to be an energizing community of worship, we have an abundance of opportunities to participate in worship and music. We have choirs for all ages, a Luttrell Concert Series for the whole metropolitan community, and opportunities for worship throughout the year. We invite you to come, worship God with us!
Music is an integral portion of our worship at First Presbyterian Church of Royal Oak. The navigation buttons to the left under Choirs, will describe our choir program offerings for all ages.
Making a joyful noise unto the Lord is a big part of the life of First Presbyterian Church of Royal Oak. Under the leadership of our Minister of Music, Donald Daniels, there are many opportunities to share God’s message through the beauty of music.
