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.

How are you keeping safe during COVID-19?
We are abiding by the requests of our health department which means face-masks are required for all individuals at all times while insode the facility regardless of activity or distance. We also have arranged our seating to accomodate for 6' of distance between each section of seats. While there are no handshakes or high fives there are lots of smiles (under the masks) and waves. We offer hand sanitizer at numerous stations throughout the facility and we even have a mask for you if you forgot one. Finally, we are sanitizing the facility before and after every gathering.

After you pull in and park, enter through the main doors under the awning where you will be greeted by some smiling faces despite being mask covered. Greeters are available to help you find anything you need. Signs are also throughout the building to help you find the sanctuary, bathrooms and kids areas or you can ask anyone for directions. Once you have found a seat in the sanctuary enjoy the music or peruse the bulletin and screens for info about upcoming activities. Also be sure to fill out the Connection Card on your phone or a hard copy that you can drop in one of the offering boxes.
