Beginning Sunday, June 6, we will have one worship service at 9:45am throughout the summer. We are opening up to full capacity but ask that you still wear a mask at this time.
You may wonder what sort of dress is appropriate, but we care less about what you are wearing and more about who you are. We welcome people wearing jeans or suits, dresses or pants, T-shirts or button-ups. We welcome you to come as you are.
*We have signage up to let people know how to get to doors that are open.
- Our Main Entrance between the Office and Carter Hall will be open for all church services and activities on Sundays. An Usher will be located in this hallway to assist you.
- The Youth Entrance from the back parking lot, which provides access to the stairs going up to the Children’s Wing and down to the Choir Room and Youth Room, will be open from 8:30am to 10:45am. An Usher will be located on the landing at the doors to also assist you.
- The Upper State Street Entrance will be open at 8:30am and will be locked during passing the peace during second service.
- All other doors in our church (the Carter Hall back doors, the Lower State Street doors and the Eleventh Street doors) will be used for exit only.
NOTE: All doors at FCC are always available for exit.
The Table Worship Service — 8:45am
At 8:45 a.m. you will find a simple and relaxed worship service called The Table.
Music in this service includes Taize, modern Christian, and good old hymns, led by Hardin Butts.
The nursery is available, and children 4 years old to second grade have the opportunity to be dismissed to Worship and Wonder, where they have interactive worship and are encouraged to wonder who God is through Bible stories.
We take communion by intinction, meaning we walk to the table and break a piece of bread and dip it in a common cup.
We practice open communion at all services, meaning everyone is welcome to partake (We believe it is God’s table and not our own). The same sermon is preached in both services.
The service lasts 55 minutes.
Traditional Worship — 10:45am
At 10:45 you will find a vibrant traditional worship service. We sing traditional hymns and have a full choir, directed by Dr. Paul Hondorp, who heads the choral program at WKU.
The nursery is available, and children 4 years old to second grade are led to Worship and Wonder during service.
The sermon is always focused on justice and mercy, and communion is the last thing we do. We serve communion by passing around trays.
We practice open communion at all services, meaning everyone is welcome to partake.
The service lasts one hour.
