Weekend services occur on Sunday mornings at 10AM and last for 90 minutes. We are currently meeting in person and online. You are welcome to join us for either one!

We are conveniently located off US Highway 169 in Smithville MO just north of the intersection with MO 92. You can access us from 169 using Stonebridge Lane (by O'Reilly's Auto Parts), from 92 by turning north on Commercial Ave, or from Commercial Ave right across from Smithville Public Schools main campus.

What about my kids?

We have a safe, fun, clean, and interactive environment for every child no matter the age! There is a staffed nursery during Sunday services & Wednesday night small groups for children ages 6 weeks-3 years. At this time FWC Kids Pre-K (3-5yrs) is meeting with FWC Kids School age (K-5th grade) on Sundays during the worship service. On Wednesday nights we offer Small Groups for kids of all ages as well.

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.

Family Worship Center is not just a church, it is a family! I have grown so much here and am grateful for the awesome leadership who is hungry for God and obedient to the leading of the Holy Spirit! God is good and moving in this church!
