Worship at FCC is a time to reconnect with the Divine, with self, and with others. We value music, silence, community, and the proclamation of the Word. Sunday morning worship is a time of celebration!
“Passing the Peace” is a central part of our gathering. At this time we leave the comfort of our seats (though some stay rooted to their spot) and walk among the congregation, extending the hand of friendship, often with these words, “The peace of Christ be with you” and receive the words in turn, “And also with you.” Sometimes people just say, “Welcome!” or “Hello!” The words matter less than the gesture itself and while a simple gesture, its meaning is profound. By it we identify with Jesus, who offers “the peace that passes understanding” (Philippians 4:7) and we symbolize our unity as a community gathered in Jesus’ name. If you join us, feel welcome to stay rooted in your spot and let us come to you or feel free to roam as many of us do, seeking out one another to greet in the name of Christ!
The Communion Table at our church belongs to Jesus and, therefore, is open to all who would come and eat, including children. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper every first Sunday of each month. Communion is not an exclusive rite but an extravagant welcome to any and all persons who may be longing to meet Christ. (Now serving gluten-free bread).
Every week we collect an Offering to support the mission and ministry of our church. While we welcome your gifts, if you are a guest among us, please do not feel that you must give an offering. Our members commit to support the church through their talents and treasures.
Worship is followed by Hospitality Hour, a time of light refreshment and conversation. If you visit us, please stay and let us get to know you better!
