The mission of FCC is to Bring People to Know Christ, Help them to Grow in Christ, and Send them to Sow Christ in the world. We want people to be transformed by the love and saving grace of Jesus Christ our Lord, to serve in the body of Christ, and to go out to share Christ’s love with others. To carry out this vision we intend to build a strong community Sunday mornings, get people involved in life groups, encourage family ministry at home, and get people plugged into a ministry that is suited to their gifts. This is a new vision for our church and we are excited to see where God is going to take us. We want a Youth Minister who is excited to be a part of this vision and can carry it out without youth and children.
