Worship is really meant to be something that is lived out everyday of our lives. It is to be a lifestyle, involving gathering together as a church family one day a week for singing, prayer, fellowship, and learning from His Word. But it also involves offering our lives to God for His purpose each day as a spiritual act of worship.
Our goal as the Worship Ministry is to make the weekend gathering a time where believers and seekers can come and connect with Christ and honor God. We exist to provide a time for all to participate in singing, prayer, communion, learning, and fellowship, which will lead us to worship our Creator, both inside the church walls as we gather and outside the church walls as we live our lives throughout the week.

The Missions ministry is responsible for developing and nurturing a global perspective of God’s church within the congregation. This is accomplished through a variety of means most notably the coordination of financial gifts to other ministries. In addition to financial gifts, the Missions ministry strives to develop and nurture relationships between the congregation and those financially supported ministries. Ministries supported by FCC include both domestic and foreign. Activities of supported ministries range from church planting, direct evangelism, ministries to homeless and at risk children and Christian higher education.
