Two Great Weekly Worship Services

The Crossing - Sundays @ 9:15 a.m. / Sanctuary @ 10:30 a.m.

We know how important style is in worship.  While we still will offer and grow our traditional service that will call FBC's Sanctuary Worship at 10:30 a.m. each Sunday morning in our Sanctuary, we are offering Contemporary Worship in our Fellowship area.  The Crossing is casual in dress but we are not casual about our love for the Lord Jesus or of our love for people who need Him.  "THE CROSSING" meets each Sunday @ 9:15 a.m. in our Family Life Center.


We want all of our worship services to be fantastic experiences of fellowship with God and other worshipers. While teens and adults worship in THE CROSSING, children and preschoolers are cared for and have fun learning life lessons from the Bible taught by gifted teachers who love kids.  Adults who want to be a part of an adult Bible study/small group can join others in contemporary Bible Study @ 10:30 and their children will attend "Children's Church" in our new Children's Theater.

HERE'S A GREAT IDEA.

We offer full hot breakfast along with juice and coffee every Sunday in our Life Cafe' located in the Family Life Center - the building that borders Main St., from 8:30 a.m. til 9:15 a.m.  Why not join us for breakfast and stick around for awhile? 

Check These Things Out!

Sunday School - 9:15 a.m.

image39

We have classes designed for everyone to find a group going through similar life-stages.  Adults, we make you 3 promises:

1. You won't be asked to read the Bible aloud, unless you volunteer to;

2. You won't be asked to answer a question about the Bible aloud, unless you volunteer to; and, 

3. You won't be asked to pray aloud, unless you volunteer to.


Our classes allow you to learn without stress.  Let us help you find a group you're comfortable learning with.

Sunday Breakfast - each week from 8:30 to 9:15 a.m.
