Central to our faith is experiencing the presence of God through hearing scripture, proclaiming the Word, singing songs that center us in the reality of God and by sharing in the very presence of Christ at an open communion table. We worship weekly in an inter-generational setting, blending both contemporary and classic elements of worship together. From our worship experience we are sent out to follow our call to follow Christ in all aspects of our lives which are centered in prayer, study and service. We hope that you will join us as God leads us forward.
We are Disciples of Christ,
a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world,
As part of the one body of Christ,
we welcome all to the Lord's Table
as God has welcomed us.

We believe that the gospel invites us to embody the teachings of Jesus in our words and actions.
Learning in community helps us grow in our faith. We value diversity of thought, curiosity and asking questions. The goal for study in our community is growth and not uniformity of thoughts.
God has given us all that we have and actively invites us to be good and generous stewards of those gifts. We the spirit practice of giving our financial resources and the sharing of our facility to meet our physical and spiritual needs.
Prayer fosters our connection with God and helps us remain grounded in faithful living.
Through weekly worship we gather in community to hear, proclaim and respond to God's word. The weekly practice helps us to connect with our community and offer encouragement to one another in our shared ministry throughout our city during the week.
We can easily get beat up in the world and so we strive to cultivate a community where love, grace and forgiveness flourish. We encourage open and honest communication tempered with healthy respect for differing opinions.

Come as you are: dress is casual and our time together affords an opportunity to experience worship that is a blend of today and the ancient liturgical traditions of Christianity. Seating is cafe style at round tables. A worship team, accompanied by piano and guitar, leads us in contemporary worship songs and some of the great hymns of the church. Our "Prayers of the People" time is a part of our gathering when we ask for prayer requests from the floor and take time to have silent prayer for each request. The sermon time is about 30 minutes and is aimed at helping us better understand and apply passages from the Bible. We close our time together by inviting all to receive communion. We practice open communion, and all, believers, and seekers, are welcomed to participate.
All are welcomed! And when we say "all" all means all, and all are invited to participate fully in the life of our community. You will find a community of democrats and republicans, straights and gays, and a variety of ethnicities and cultural backgrounds among us. What we all share is that we are all Seeking God and wholeness through the grace Christ offers.
This ministry team helps us to make meaningful connections to one another through service in our community. We are intentional about blurring the line between care specifically for those in our faith community and out in the neighborhood, knowing that Christ is everywhere.
Part of supportive Christian community is caring for one another. Our elders go on home bound and hospital visits to pray with and for those in our community who physically cannot be part of our worshiping community.
FCC extends a wide welcome to everyone! Hospitality is a big part of what we do on Sunday morning. Volunteers do a variety of tasks from welcoming worshipers, to handing out bulletins, to providing breakfast snacks, to making making coffee, to preparing communion, to aiding in worship in a variety of ways. We have sign up white boards outside the sanctuary for people to sign up where they feel gifted and called to serve.
Each week we seek to provide meaningful worship by seeking ways for the entire community to share their gifts and make an offering to God.
FCC is a praying community. We know that when life gets turned up-side-down and we feel like the bottom has fallen out, we need to know that we are not alone. We believe that Christ is present in our suffering and we are called to be present with one another when we are suffering. One way we offer spiritual help when we are in need is by praying with and for one another. Once you submit your prayer request, it will go to the Elders in our congregation. Prayer requests can remain confidential or can be included in our weekly intercessory prayer card.
All physical and mental emergencies should be directed to 9-1-1.
