FIRST TIME VISITING?
If you’ve been away from church for a long time or never really “did church”, we’re so glad you are checking us out!
We know that it can feel awkward or even scary to visit a church for the first time. That’s why our vision is to “be the church to the unchurched” – a place where you don’t have to be fluent in “church” in order to start or continue your faith journey.
Below you’ll find some basic info that’ll help you navigate your first visit to FFC. If you have questions that aren’t covered below, please let us know.
What To Wear
We are pretty casual, so please come dressed however you feel comfortable. No need to dress up!
The Welcome Center
When you arrive, we invite you to stop by the Welcome Center in our foyer. Our volunteers can help you with some of the basics (where to find the restrooms, where you can get a free cup of coffee, and where you can drop off your kids) – and when you’re ready, they can also help you find ways to get connected at FFC.
We meet each Sunday morning at 10:00 AM for Adults and Kidzlife. Our Student Ministry (grades 6-12) meet on Wednesday nights at 6pm.
Sunday services run about 75 to 80 minutes in length. Our music is vibrant (which is “code” for “up-beat and loud”). What that means is no one will notice if you don’t know the songs and aren’t singing along…or if you’re not a great singer. And, so you won’t fall asleep when the music stops, our speakers’ messages are creative, timely, honest, and relevant–with a little bit of humor mixed in.
Children and Youth
Our Children’s Ministry (infant-5th grade) meets during our morning service. The Nursery is designed for infants through 23 months and we offer a private nursing mother’s nook. We have TykesLife classes for 2 & 3 year olds and 4 & 5 year olds. KidzLife is a high energy worship and learning environment for kindergarten thru 5th grade.
FFC Student Ministries is for grades 6-12 and meets every Wednesday night at 6 pm.
Wednesday Nights – ReCharge
ReCharge is designed to encourage spiritual growth and development and meets each Wednesday night at 6:30pm until 7:45pm. Dinner is served on the 2nd Wednesday night of each month at 5:30pm ($4 per person/$12 per family), with Adult Bible Study, Students, and KidzLife following at 6:30pm.
