We’re so glad you found us! Rose City Park Presbyterian Church is an historic church located in the heart of the Hollywood district in Northeast Portland, Oregon. We are an inclusive spiritual community for all of God’s people. To help you to get to know us a bit more, here is a quick overview of frequently asked questions and helpful topics:
1. How to get here?
RCPPC is located just a few blocks from Tri Met’s Hollywood Transit Center and is easily accessible along the #12 bus line.
For worship, enter through the double doors off the parking lot at NE 44th Avenue and Sandy Boulevard.
2. Come as you are
Typically, the attire of those who attend RCPPC is “dressy casual,” but you’ll find all kinds of styles among us. Please feel free to wear whatever is comfortable for you.
Please don’t delay your visit until you think it’s the perfect time or you are exactly where you want to be in life. Just come as you are. We do!
3. Style of worship
The worship style of Rose City Park Presbyterian can be described as “casually traditional.” You won’t find a rock band in our service but you’ll experience talented musicians and vocalists, an organ and a piano, and sometimes “guest appearances” of other instruments. Our liturgy is typically “mainline” but is not so formal as to be “stuffy.” We enjoy laughter and a casual “vibe.”
4. What about children?
Nursery care is available for children 3 years of age and younger. You may check your nursery aged children into the nursery, which is located on the lower level behind the fellowship hall.
All other children are invited to join us in the worship service. We have an intergenerational service and children will be warmly included into our worshiping church family. Children’s bulletins and activity bags are available at a table outside of the sanctuary doors.
5. Coffee Fellowship
Following the worship service, you are invited to join us downstairs in the fellowship hall for cookies, coffee, and conversation with other members. The Coffee Fellowship is a great time to get to know other people in our church.
