:: what to expect

We generally have two services each Sunday..

Our Early Worship, which begins at 9:00 a.m., tends to be a little more informal and casual, perhaps even a little more intimate.

Our later service, which begins at 11:00 a.m., might lean a little more toward the traditional side, while still maintaining a "blended" approach.


On certain occasions, such as during the summer, on the last Sunday of the year or on our annual congregational meeting, we have one combined service at 10:00 a.m. Please check the home page to see if there is only one service for a particular date.

Our Senior Minister, Rev. Dr. Russell Peterman, and each week's worship leaders will guide things as they go, and your bulletin will give you a rundown of that week's order of service. At both services we run the gamut from lyrical classical music to hand-clapping gospel, from silent prayer to stirring preaching. And each service concludes with Communion, a simple meal of bread and juice that forms the center of our life together. At FCC, everyone is welcome to take Communion, whether you are baptized or not, whether you believe a little, or believe a lot!
