    I know that being new to a church can seem confusing at first. We want to really help you get plugged in and make new friends. I would encourage you to give us a try a few times, so that you get a good idea of what our student ministry is all about.

    We always have something exciting going on here and we would love for you to be involved in any of our events.

    If I can answer any questions you may have about our church or student ministry, please don’t hesitate to contact me. We would love to see you soon!


    Sunday Morning

    9:45 AM | FLC | 6th - 12th Grade.

    We are a good-sized church and if you're not careful you can get lost in the crowd. Sunday School is set up for students to break down into smaller groups (students are grouped by grade and gender) where they can get to know each other and form friendships with other believers their age.

    Sunday Nights
