In a word, yes. Handicap parking is available in the parking area at the rear of the church, closest to the sanctuary door.

There are no steps required for accessing the main floor of our sanctuary. The sanctuary, meeting rooms, classrooms, and offices are all located on the same level, so there is easy access throughout the church. We have several reserved seating spaces for you and your family in the sanctuary. Please see our ushers to help with finding your place.

Our worship services are aimed at creating an environment for celebration, adoration, and surrender to God. The choir, instruments, soloists, worship leaders, worship band, traditional hymns and contemporary music work together to magnify our Lord Jesus Christ.

All of our services are one hour long.

We’re pretty casual and want you to feel at home. Please dress in a way that makes you feel comfortable! Hey, we are located in the Fun Capital of the world.

Yourself, a Bible, if you have one, an open heart, family and friends.  We don't ask for much.

First, you will not be asked to stand and introduce yourself to the congregation. We do offer a short period of meet-and-greet time at the beginning of the services to allow those sitting near you to welcome you to FPC.  At the end of the 8:15 and 11 AM services, we will take a moment to join hands as we sing the response to the benediction.

Sunday Morning Opportunities...

Nursery care is provided during all Sunday morning services and select special events for infants and children up to 4 years old. All nursery workers have years of experience and are certified to provide the best care for your child. Pagers are given to each parent for peace of mind and are used in case of an emergency or to notify the parents of an inconsolable baby.

Our Kids’ Kingdom for children in Pre-K through 5th grade is offered during our Sunday morning 9:45 AM contemporary “Sunday Alive” worship service.  (Check-in for Kids’ Kingdom begins at 9:30 AM.)  Children worship Christ and study the Bible together.  Our teachers love children and love sharing Christ with them.

Our Children’s Life Group (also Pre-K through 5th grade) meets on Sunday mornings at 11:00 AM. (Check-in begins at 10:45 AM.)  We provide a place for games, creative activities, and a chance for children to learn about Jesus Christ in hands-on ways for the purpose of deepening their faith in Jesus Christ.

 

We have a very active Believers Youth Group here at FPC for grades 6-12. We meet on Sundays from 11:00 AM to 12 noon in the Youth Room.  We encourage our youth to sit with their families during our worship services.

We offer numerous Adult Sunday School Classes on Sunday mornings at 9:30. Please stop by our hospitality desk for help selecting a class and its location.

We offer coffee and fellowship time before and after our Sunday services. This is a chance to mingle, get questions answered at our hospitality desk, and meet new friends.

We are honored to have you worship with us as our guest.  Please do not feel obligated when the offering basket is passed.  You will often see people pass the basket without contributing, since many of our members give monthly or online.

We serve communion at all worship services the first Sunday of every month.  Communion is served in the pews from plates passed down the rows.  This is a personal time of inward reflection.  If you feel uncomfortable with participating in communion, no one will notice whether you take the elements or just pass the plate.

At FPC, we believe that the communion table is the Lord’s Table, open to all who have or who seek faith in God in the way of Christ.  As we celebrate the Lord’s table, we remember that He is the host and we are his guests. He welcomes everyone to come and eat and be nourished, fed and forgiven.  We invite everyone who believes in the saving power of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ to join us.
