FCC Women's Intercessory Prayer Ministry Informational Meeting

For a long while now, FCC has been known within the community as a "praying" church. We are excited to be growing in this area of ministry. The Women's prayer ministry has recently come along side our Elders to pray with individuals after each Sunday morning service in the Fireside Room. We are expanding to offer one-on-one prayer with women at other times throughout the week and host a weekly time of prayer on Thursday nights, 5:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. at the church. All ladies are invited to an informational meeting on Thursday, March 2 at 5:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall to see how you can be involved in this praying and caring ministry.

New Campaign begins

Rarely in the Bible does God command someone to "stay". Instead, he opens a door and invites us to walk through it - into the unknown. And whether we stay or go will ultimately determine the kind of life we'll live and the kind of person we will become. 

But it's not just one door. God places lots of open doors in front of us everyday. For those who recognize them and choose to walk through, life becomes a divine adventure. And those who don't? Well...not only are they missing out on a lot of incredible adventures and experiences, they are missing out on all the amazing work God wants to do through them!

Join us for a new series entitled "Open Doors" beginning February 12. You will learn how to recognize divine opportunities in daily life; overcome the fear of missing out or making the wrong decision; and walk through open doors with confidence. Sign up to join a Life group to take the discussion deeper. Groups are forming now.
