Keeping you in the conversation of what's happening at FC!
EXPLORE -- We recently launched our 2019 generosity initiative: EXPLORE.
The purpose of this initiative is twofold: 1. To set aside seed money that will fund community ministry opportunities, and 2. To reduce the principal amount owed on our facility.
Pelase join us in praying that God will prepare the hearts of His people for the ministry opportunities He will lay before us and that we will all respond to His leading with generosity. Click here for more information on Explore! or click here to fill out a commitment card.

Summer Family Ministry Info
Reach -- Middle School Students (especially incoming 6th graders!), you won't want to miss these three nights to help kick off summer. Join us Sunday June 2nd through Tuesday June 4th from 6-8pm at the church for food, games, and lessons on life. Invite your friends to this awesome event where we journey through Daniel, and learn how he stood up when others wanted him to conform. Sunday is Water Night, Monday is Fire Night, and Tuesday is Messy Game Night so dress accordingly! $10 per student.
VBS is July 22-24 -- VBS is only 2 months away! Summer days fly by, so make sure you sign up your kids, neighbors, and/or extended family because they won't want to miss The Journey and how God wants to guide them along their way.
