We embrace Jesus’ mission to live out His Gospel together. Compelled by His love, we point our lives outward, into the very Orange neighborhoods, workplaces, and schools He has placed us in. In that, He has moved our hearts and vision towards unique partnerships in Orange.
ORANGE HIGH SCHOOL
Much more than the venue for our weekend services, we want Orange High School to be a placer where our community is missionally invested. Building on the momentum from the last couple of years, we will continue to participate in mentorships and beautification projects on campus.
We have the opportunity to build one-on-one impactful relationships with these high school students. Mentors meet with students to be positive influences and to come alongside students in whatever ways they need. Not only is this happening at Orange High School, but we’re also offering mentorships at El Modena High through a partnership with The Beacon Church.
Thursdays from 11:10am -12:15pm starting in February.
Throughout the year, RHO will also be taking on various service projects on the OHS campus, helping with things like landscaping and remodeling.
HART PARK HOMELESSNESS MINISTRY
Another mission field that exists in our city uniquely involves the homeless population living at Hart Park. This year, we want to build relationships with the men and women living there in hopes that we can love them well, point them to Jesus, and be available to meet their spiritual or physical needs. Every month we have a bbq in the park behind the pool to help build those relationships.
We are bringing a chili potluck to our homeless friends at Hart Park. All are welcome to join in as we build relationships and share God’s love. We meet on the first Sunday of the month at Hart Park by the pool.

Adoption and foster care are significant ways that people in our community are stepping into the rhythm of God’s heart and embodying the Gospel. We want to be a church that supports adoption and foster care and so we are offering a class covering the “why’s” and the “how’s” of adoption and foster care.
Apartment Life is a faith based non-profit organization that sends CARES teams to live on site in apartment communities. These teams live rent free and are there to welcome new neighbors, host events, and help people make new friends. Another important part of their role is to help care for people in the complex through good times and bad. If you are interested you can check out their website.
