Family Ministry

Partnering with Families. Engaging Children.


So love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and strength. Memorize his laws and tell them to your children over and over again. Talk about them all the time, whether you're at home or walking along the road or going to bed at night, or getting up in the morning. Deuteronomy 6:4-7 (CEV)


Family Ministry at FCC aims to partner with families to build a foundation of faith in Christ for the next generation by cultivating authentic relationships in a place where everyone belongs and providing engaging experiences that bring God’s story to life.

    We continue our original purpose of nurturing children in body, mind, and spirit. We do this so they, like Jesus, will grow in wisdom, stature and favor with both God and man. (Luke 2:52)


    Classes meet Monday-Thursday, 8:45-11:45a. Find all the details and registration here. Questions? Contact Tammy Hendricks, Director of Weekday Preschool.

  • FCC Kids is OPEN!

    We are excited to be back and look forward to seeing you and your family this morning. Check-in begins at 10:15a. Our FCC Kids teams are making sure that your child is safe by wearing masks, having special kits for each child, practicing social distancing, and sanitizing often. If you are not comfortable bringing your child to church yet, that is ok. Lessons will still be posted in our Facebook group.
