We recognize coming to a new church can be overwhelming at times. These frequently asked questions will hopefully put your mind at ease and prepare you for enjoying fellowship and worship with us at OPPC!
What time are your worship services?
Traditional Worship 9:00 a.m.
Contemporary Worship 11:10 a.m.
Where are you located?
The church is located at the intersection of 106th Street and Rangeline Road. See a Google Map of our location.
What should I wear?
While OPPC does not dictate a dress code for our members, people who attend our Traditional Worship at 9 a.m. tend to wear “Sunday Best” attire. Several attendees in that service wear suitcoats and dresses. During our Contemporary Service, people tend to dress a bit more casually. You will see people wearing jeans and sweaters in cooler weather and shorts during the summer. However, during the NFL season, you'll see a few Colts jerseys during both services.
Where should I park?
While you can park anywhere in our parking lot, you may want to note our two main entrances to make your parking decisions easier. Our Sanctuary entrance, Door #2, is located under the large portico on the northwest side of our building and our church office is located on the southeast side of our building, Door #1.
Is there childcare during services and Sunday School?
Childcare is offered in our Bird House for infants to pre-K during all our services and the Sunday School Hour. Feel free to bring your little ones to the following rooms based on their age.
Infants to 12 Months: Room 126
Toddlers to 2 Years Old: Room 127
3 Years Old to Pre-K: Room 130
Where do my school-aged children go?
All school-aged visitors and members are welcome to attend our services. During our Sunday School hour, please see the schedule below for classes and locations for all school-aged children.
K- 5th Grade: The Treehouse (Rooms 203 – 208)
6th Grade: Room 213
7th and 8th Grade: Room 214
9th to 12th Grade: Room 215
Am I expected to put money in the offering?
We understand that giving is a personal choice. The money that is put in the offering is put towards our budget to deliver programming to our members and guests as well as help with the upkeep of our church. If you feel moved to contribute, contribution envelopes are available in the pews in the sanctuary.
What is the leadership structure of Orchard Park?
OPPC is led by a Ministry Staff as well as Lay Leadership. The Session is composed of Elders and provides the governing of the church. The Deacons are focused on pastoral care. Both Elders and Deacons are supported by a committee structure.
What school systems are represented at Orchard Park?
Currently youth involved at OPPC attend the following school systems:
Carmel Clay, Westfield Washington, Hamilton Southeastern, Washington Township Schools, Zionsville, Noblesville and several private schools.
Am I (or my youth) allowed to bring friends to youth events at OPPC?
Friends are ALWAYS welcome to attend youth activities at OPPC! Some events may require advance notice or reservations, so be sure at those times to let us know that your friend(s) will be joining us! The more the merrier!
Does OPPC provide listening devices for those with difficulty hearing?
Yes, you may pick a listening enhancer up in the back of the sanctuary. Sermons are also available in print for you to read along.
If I am facing a difficult situation in my life, is there someone I can talk to at OPPC?
OPPC wants to share in ministry with youth and their families in both good times and in difficult times. We can put you in contact with Pastoral Staff, Staff, Elders, and other lay people at OPPC to provide care and insight. We can also refer you to other helpful resources when you need them. Contact the church office at 317-844-1107 for more information. OPPC also partners with Groff and Associates. Currently Kristie Watts has a dedicated counseling space onsite.
