Connecting Groups

It is our desire to see the body of Christ come together, growing in their faith, and connecting with other believers. Life is hard to do by ourselves and we feel no one should ever have to do it alone. That is why we are starting Connecting Groups. We believe this will help us become a closer family and help the church make disciples!

Here is a current list of all the Connecting Groups we have going on at FCC.

    nothing but sin, and were determined to know nothing among men but Jesus Christ

    and Him crucified, I would set the world on fire." *Please purchase Maximized Manhood
