Prayer Vigil-Sign Up! Following the service on Maundy Thursday (March 29th), we will have a 24-hour Prayer Vigil in the Chapel. The signup sheet will be in the chapel for first service, the sanctuary for second service and in Koinonia Hall during coffee time. You will sign up for a one-hour time slot. The first half hour you will watch (see Matthew 26:36-41) as the previous person prays. Then you will pray during the second half hour while the next person comes and “watches” over you. Don’t miss this opportunity to ponder the miracle of God’s Grace poured out on us.

What to Expect When You Worship With Us
What do I need to believe? At FCC, we are figuring that out together. We have no statement of faith that we require. We center our spiritual lives around the life and teachings of Jesus.
What are your worship services like? In general, you’ll find a relaxed atmosphere. Sometimes we have guitars, sometimes organs and piano. Our services always include singing, reading of Scripture, praying, and at the heart of service is the celebration of Communion.
Do you have childcare? Yes! Childcare is available through the age of 7 for the 11:00 a.m. worship service. (During the 10:00 am service during the Beat the Heat summer ours, July 2nd-September 3rd, 2017).
Is someone going to make me stand up and introduce myself? Nope. Individuals will greet you and get to know you, but we won’t require you to stand up and introduce yourself to the whole group.
Can I receive communion? Yes! All are welcome to receive communion—the table belongs to Christ, not to us.
Do I need to dress up? Come to FCC for worship as you are. You'll find some people in jeans and shorts and others in their “Sunday best”—people truly come as they are!
Where are you located? at 295 E. Washington backing up to the cemetery and Chico Junior High
