Keeping you in the conversation of what's happening at FC!

Community ImpactThere are many ways to partner with FC to take the Acts 2:39 promise to our community.  Make sure and read through the Community Impact section, visit their page, or head to the booth in the Lobby on Sunday morning for more information on being a part of this ministry.

Luau - Summer is a significant season for our church, and especially our Family Ministry.  They spend weeks at camp and conferences focused on their growth in faith, deepening relationships, and building lasting memories.  This year, we also kicked off our generosity initiative, Explore!  We are going to celebrate this Summer on Sunday, July 28th, from noon-2pm in the back parking lot. We've got a pig roast, games, other food to end the Summer with a bang.  Can't wait for this time of fellowship with our church family!

Golf Gives Back - Do you love golf?  Have you had the opportunity to experience the excitment of a pro golf championship tournament?   FC has been blessed to get free tickets to all 4 days of the Korn Ferry Tour Championship (formerly the Web.com tour) at Victoria National Golf club Aug 30 - Sept 2 and want to bless our church with them.  Also, the more people that use our tickets, the more of the charity money the church will receive.  Click here to print off the ticket.  (Same ticket is used each day of tournament, just print it off for as many days and people as you have.  Feel free to print them out and give them to friends, family and neighbors as well!)

Family Ministry

VBS is July 22-24 -- VBS is next week!  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.

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.

Please 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.

Community Impact

We plan on reaching out to the community in new ways!  When you think of past outreach events at FC, you may think of school supplies and tubs, but through much prayer and many conversations we know God is leading us away from one-off events to building relationships

This fall, we plan to launch after-school tutoring at Sharon and Newburgh elementary schools!  It will be a fresh way to establish relationships with families ... all while opening avenues to sharing His good news.  Also, we learned from our Christmas event last year at Sharon Elementary that families are more likely to attend when the event is held at a familiar location such as the school. We are eager to announce that the school administrators have agreed to let us hold the Back-to-School events at the schools this year.

Aug 3, 5-7pm - Back to School @ Sharon Elementary

Aug 4, 6-8pm -  Back to School @ Newburgh Elementary

If you feel led to partner with us, please click here to fill out an interest form and someone from Community Impact will contact you to discuss how you can partner in making an impact on our community.
