OPC News and views
The 44th Annual Anchor House Foundation Ride for Runaways rolls through Orange on July 10th. About 80 cyclists will journey 500 miles from Charlottesville, Virginia to Trenton, New Jersey. And one of their first rest stops will be at OPC!
What is OPC's involvement?
Orange Presbyterian Church is providing space and facilities for a scheduled rest stop Sunday morning, July 10.
The ride's support team will set up in the church parking lot with rehydration stations. Our restrooms will be available to the riders.
What does that mean for me?
The lower church lot will be sectioned off for the riders. When you come to church, plan to park in the side unpaved lot. After worship, please exit through Brooking Street
