First Baptist Orlando Roof Repair Coming Soon!

Parents the church will be repairing E2’s roof over the next few months.  For a few days next week it will be fairly noisy.  We will make room adjustments as we can but for a few days it may be a little out of the normal routine.  The repairs will begin starting on Monday, October 30.




Welcome one of our newest Inclusion Paraprofessionals, Chris Marcello! Chris and his wife recently moved from Ocala, Florida to Orlando. Chris graduated college with a degree in Ministry from Southeastern University and has a love for music in the church. On his days off, he enjoys going to the movies, sporting events, or Universal. Chris is looking forward to working with our First Hope students this 2017-2018 school year.

This month is almost over but all of TFA have shared their love for our pastors here at FBCO all of October.  We were able to celebrate them specifically this past Tuesday sharing Chick Fil A and some amazing cards/artwork and other things.  The card I share above is from my own son Charlie who created this all on his own.  He sees the value of the church sharing their space to let us teach and love on our students each and every day.  He has been here at The First Hope for 7 years and has been listening to all of you pastors at FBCO for years.  We are all grateful for all our pastors and we do very much appreciate them as they lead and guide us along the way.
