“You’ll use the old rubble of past lives to build anew, rebuild the foundations from out of your past. You’ll be known as those who can fix anything, restore old ruins, rebuild and RENOVATE, make the community livable again.”
– Isaiah 58:12
Renovate: City and Soul is a vision God has given Friends Church Orange to reach the people of Orange and partner with the city. With plans changing for our current location, we believe God has provided a unique opportunity with an option to lease the Packing House.
The Orange Packing House is a historic building that sits empty with an uncertain future. We will serve our city and renovate this important building as a symbol of renewal. We will pursue the souls of our city – people who are also empty, with a broken past and uncertain future. The Packing House will become a symbol of hope and a place to belong, through the renewal of God’s love.
Please look through the materials available here, and consider giving financially as we take the next step together.
We believe God has provided a future for Friends, as well as for the old Packing House. We want to repurpose it into a symbol of renewal for both the city and the people of Orange.
