Do you wish you had some new ways to pray? 
Are you open to meeting God in deeper experiences?

Join us for an online Saturday morning virtual prayer retreat. We will spend some time in community, utilize three biblical stories and learn three spiritual disciplines that give us tools to enrich our prayer lives. We will gather, spend time together, spend time alone and re-gather throughout the morning. 
BYO Coffee and Danish!

Please register by emailing Pastor Nancy  so she can send you the Zoom link and retreat materials.
Sunday Worship Service

Join us for worship this Sunday morning and every Sunday at 9am on FCC's Facebook page .

If you cannot join us live on Sunday morning, the recorded service will be posted on our website on Sunday and will stay there throughout the week. Though we are physically apart during this unprecedented time, we are thankful for a way to continue to worship together as a church family online.

"And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching." Hebrews 10:24-25

FCC Sermon-based Connection Groups

Joining an FCC Connection Group is one of the best ways to cultivate personal faith in Jesus while developing meaningful connections in our church community.

Our FCC Connection Groups are small gatherings of about eight to twelve people. Group members reflect on the Bible, discuss the Christian faith and enjoy community together.

Some of our Connection Groups are meeting online during this time. If you would like to grow in your faith while experiencing community with others, we recommend that you consider joining a Connection Group.

If you have questions, email Pastor Nancy .
Kids Ministry

Hopefully your kids have been able to watch the children's sermon each Sunday morning during our streaming service! Here are a few other things going on:

1. Every Sunday morning Pastor Danny posts a Bible reading, some discussion questions, and a follow up activity to the kids sermon. This is posted to the FCC Parents Connection Group Facebook page before the service begins so you will be ready after the kids sermon is over.

Join the FCC Parents Connection Group's private Facebook page by clicking here .

2. Every Thursday afternoon at 4:15pm, our Toddlers Teacher and Worship Leader, Ginny Halstead, leads a 30-minute online get-together. This is primarily for Pre-K & K kids, but all ages are welcome! Ginny will read a story, sing some songs, and lead a time of interaction and discussion. The get-together takes place on Zoom. The meeting number is 335-546-390 .

3. Every week one of our Sunday School teachers posts a video for kids on the FCC Parents Connection Group Facebook page to catch them up on what they have been doing during their time at home.
