Ways to join us

We admit that we do not have a long list of events. We are very intentional about only offering the events and activities that will help people connect with God and with each other. A major part of that goal is to be involved in activities that bring multiple generations together.

With that in mind, below you will find some places to connect with us, as well as useful information about opprotunities and events!

 

Baptism Sunday is September 7 : : Baptism Discussion is August 24

Have you been thinking about being baptized by immersion, or have some questions regarding baptism? Sunday, August 24, right after each worship service you will have the opportunity to ask any questions you have about baptism during a discussion meeting with one of FCC’s Ministers.

We then invite you to Baptism Sunday on September 7. If you have been putting this off for a while or want to be baptized, this is the day. We will have a shorter worship and teaching time that morning and then meet outside to celebrate the baptism of anyone who is interested.
