Welcome home! It is our desire that everyone feel at home here at FWC. Most of all we desire that you experience the great love of God and His presence when you join us for worship.
We believe that every person who comes into our church was sent by God, so it's not by accident we have the joy of meeting you. Above all else we want to express Christ's love to you with genuine warmth. We are eager to get to know you, and excited to share with you the amazing ways God is working in and through our church.
It wont take you long to discover that this is truly a family rich in the relationships that matter most. Growing together we worship, we serve, we laugh, we cry, we learn, and we reach out to our world with the life transforming truth of Jesus Christ. We reach out to you as well. Our doors are open and our hearts are too. If you have been thinking, praying , searching or hoping for a place to belong we say welcome home.
