…CELEBRATING over 100 YEARS
Welcome to Rose City Park Presbyterian Church in Portland, Oregon!
We worship on Sundays at 10 a.m.
Our sanctuary is located on the Southeast corner of N.E. 44th and Sandy in Portland’s Hollywood District.
UPCOMING EVENTS DURING ADVENT AND CHRISTMAS
Advent begins on Sunday, December 1st and continues through December 22nd. Sunday morning worship will include the traditional lighting of our Advent wreath.
You can find the adult devotional, A World Awaits, in the upper narthex. It is a collection of writings by C.S. Lewis with a daily scripture reading and a prayer. Families with children will receive an Advent calendar and small devotional from Donavan called A Bright Star in Bethlehem during worship on December 1st. If you will not be in worship then, please see the office or Donavan to make alternate arrangements.
Advent Festival—December 8th
After worship on Sunday, we will gather for our 2nd Annual Feast of Carols. Bring your favorite hot dish, salad or festive holiday dessert to share. There will be greens available to make a wreath or a swag—a favorite tradition of our Advent Festival. We will break out the Christmas carols, so come and enjoy the artistry of Sam and Chris as they lead the choir and all of us in joyous celebration of the season. There will be a craft activity to help us decorate the lower narthex tree that will become a Children’s and Rose City Park Community tree. In addition, we will hear a portion of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Plan on putting your Scrooge away!
In addition to our gifts to the Christmas Joy Offering, we will also join in KGW-TV’s “Great Toy Drive”. For more information, please check out the latest issue of The Broadcaster.
Christmas Program—December 15th
Join us on December 15th as a cast of many present a program of story and song. This event will take place during worship at 10 a.m.
Christmas Caroling—December 22nd
All are invited to join our youth for caroling, pizza, treats and hot chocolate from 3 to 5 p.m. Meet at the church and dress for the weather. Let’s bring holiday cheer to our neighbors!
Christmas Eve—December 24th
Candlelight Communion Worship at 8 p.m. this year unifies our two traditional services into one time of glorious worship for all ages. Candlelight, the voices of the chancel choir, and communion are followed by a fellowship of wassail and cookies in the parlor. Bring your family and friends as we celebrate the birth of Christ through word and song. Enter through the narthex doors or the elevator as early as 7:30 p.m.
Epiphany Worship—January 6th
Rose City Park Presbyterian and our neighboring congregations will celebrate Epiphany this year on January 8th at 7:30 p.m. at St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church. Come and listen to the many choirs and usher in the Season of Light with our Methodist, United Church of Christ, Lutheran, Catholic and Episcopalian sisters and brothers in Christ.
