Worship includes opportunities for everyone to sing and pray together. There are also readings from the Bible and a sermon that will encourage you to think about what you believe and how you will live out your Christian faith in the world. The Adult Choir sings weekly during worship. On special occasions, our Hand Bell choir and other instrumentalists share their talents during worship.
Children of all ages attend the beginning of the worship service and are invited to A Time for Children before going to Children’s Ministry. Infants and Toddlers are welcome to play in the Crib Nursery before and during worship.
FCC celebrates two sacraments: Holy Communion and Baptism.
On the 1st Sunday of every month, Christmas Eve, & Maundy Thursday, the sacrament of Communion is shared. Everyone is welcome to participate in Communion, no matter their age or member status. Communion is received while seated in the pews. Deacons serve the bread first, and then the grape juice. The tray is passed half way down the pew, and then back to the aisle. Please hold the tray for your neighbor while they serve themselves. We eat the bread upon receiving it to acknowledge our individuality before God. As a sign of our unity in Christ, we wait until all have been served the cup of the new covenant and then we share in drinking the cup together.
Once a month, FCC celebrates the sacrament of baptism. Baptisms happen on Sunday morning during worship where the entire church community pledges to help nurture the baptized person in the Christian faith. We usually baptize small children, but anyone can be baptized. You do not need to be a member of FCC to be baptized. (More information about Baptism, click here.)
