WHAT TIME ARE THE SERVICES?
We have offer two different services on Sundays. Our first service is at 8:00a and is a more traditional service. Our second service is at 10:30a and has a more modern feel to it. Each service will last approximately an hour. We’d encourage you to arrive 15 minutes early, especially if you have young children. That will give you plenty of time to get your children checked in at the prior to the service. Also, we have multiple Sunday School classes that begin at 9:15a.
HOW SHOULD I DRESS?
FCOC is a "come as you are" church. We want you to feel comfortable. After all, we are thrilled that you're joining us and we want you to be more focused on who you’re worshiping than what you're wearing. In the summertime, it's not uncommon to see people wearing sandals, shorts, and a t-shirt. Most people dress casual though a few still prefer to put on their "Sunday best," and that's fine, too! We think you'll fit in no matter how you dress.
WHAT ARE THE MESSAGES LIKE?
The most important thing we could say is, we aim to teach the Bible in a way that is engaging, understandable, and applicable. Transformation is inseparable from application, so you will find the teaching here always ends in “how does this truth challenge, encourage or guide me right where I am?” Most messages are biblical exposition; that is, a verse-by-verse study of God’s Word, a “balanced diet” of the whole counsel of God. In addition, our focus is on God’s Word, not the teacher.
WHAT ABOUT THE MUSIC?
Music and singing is just one of the many ways that we worship. At FCOC, we are led by a team of musicians and vocalists. Our first service is generally just a vocal leader and piano. Our second service you will see a full band and vocalists. We try to stay up-to-date and current with second service, and keep the traditional feel with first service.
WHAT'S AVAILABLE FOR MY KIDS?
We have a great children’s experience every Sunday: "Never Too Young" is designed to help your children connect with God, with each other, and with the mission. We have four areas for children (Beginnings 0-24 months, Toddlers 2-3 year olds, Pre-k 4-5 year olds, and N2Y K-5th grade).
DO YOU HAVE SOMETHING FOR STUDENTS?
We have Sunday School classes for our Jr High students. We encourage them to go to our second service worship after Sunday School. Also check out Glow, our youth group on Wednesday nights.
WILL I BE ASKED TO GIVE MONEY?
If you are a guest, please do not feel any obligation to give. We believe giving is an act of worship wherein those who have a personal relationship with God through Christ, give regularly and generously in response to God’s gracious gifts.
