If you are a first-time guest at FCC, here are a few things you will want to know.
Will I feel out of place?
NO WAY! When you enter the doors of FCC, you will be warmly welcomed and joyfully accepted. We have new guests almost every week at FCC. Jesus loves you, and so do we!
Will I have to stand up and introduce myself during the service?
NO WAY! We would not want to embarrass you that way. We do WANT you to come back! Plenty of people will introduce themselves to you!
How should I dress?
At FCC, we are not focused on what you wear. Most of those who come to FCC dress in casual attire. In our traditional service (8:30 a.m.) you will see more formal attire.
Do I have to fill out any information cards?
You do not HAVE to fill out one of our Connection Cards, BUT if you do we will make a few promises to you. We will NOT come knocking at your door (UNLESS you ask us to). We will NOT sell your information to any telemarketing firms (even IF you ask us to). We will NOT swamp you with mail. We WILL send you a card and an email from the Church if you fill out your Connection Card!
Tell me about the Worship Services
Sunday Morning Worship Services
8:30 AM- Our 8:30 worship service is a traditional service filled with hymns and a few choruses. Our music is led with the piano and keyboard! This service runs for approximately one hour.
10:45 AM- Our 10:45 worship service is a contemporary service that features many of the new songs of the faith along with modern praise choruses. The Worship Band leads the music in this service. This service runs for approximately one hour and fifteen minutes.
Sunday Evening Life Groups During the months of February to April and September-November FCC has Life Groups! Life Groups are small group ministries where you will have the opportunity to grow closer to Jesus, and you will get to grow closer to others who are a part of FCC!
What about my Children?
We provide a Family Worship Room for any parents who would like to use the room. The room features privacy glass and is wired for sound. During the 10:45 Worship Service, we also provide a "Wee Worship" service for children ages 2-4. For those who have older children (ages 5 to 4th grade), we provide "Kid's Way Worship" service during our Contemporary service (10:45 a.m.). This program brings worship to their level. We also offer a Wee Worship program for children ages 2-4 during the 10:45 a.m. service. We have Open Life Groups (Sunday School) at 9:45 a.m. For those with teenagers, we offer a youth group at 6 p.m. each Sunday evening. We will staff the nursery during our Life Groups as well as our Wednesday evening adult Bible Study when needed!
Anything else I need to know?
At FCC, we take communion each Sunday as was the tradition of the early church. We practice open communion which means that even if you are not a "member" of FCC you are welcome to take communion if the Lord leads you to do so.
If you feel led to give financially to the mission of FCC, you can do so through electronic giving or the offering boxes provided in the Sanctuary. As a guest, we do not expect you to participate in the offering unless you feel led. Members and regular attendees are encouraged to fund the ministries of FCC.
During of service, we will have music, prayers, a message, announcements, offering, communion, and an invitation time. The invitation time is a time in which a person who wants to become a Christian can come forward and be immersed (baptized) into Christ. It is also a time to come up for prayers if there is something they want the church to pray for, or if a person wishes to place membership with FCC.
