Our Children’s program, FCC Kidz, headed up by our Children’s Pastor, Eris Ridens is for ages birth through 5th-grade. Weekend and Wednesday night programming, as well as after-school groups, will help your children become connected to the Church, while meeting new friends and engaging in fun activities.  Most importantly, they will have opportunities to learn about what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.


Medical Release

FCC requires all students and adults that will be using FCC transportation to fill out a medical release form. This year, we are using SmartWaiver and this form must be done online. This form is good for the whole 2018 year.

Vacation Bible School

Send your kids on an impacting island adventure! At Shipwrecked VBS, kids discover how Jesus rescues us through life’s storms. Shipwrecked is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Sciency-Fun Gizmos™, team-building games,  and cool Bible songs are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life—something we call God Sightings. Get ready to hear that phrase a lot! Your kids will also participate in collecting quarters for our food packing event, a hands-on mission project, that will provide food for families in need.

Parents, grandparents, and friends are invited to join us at Sail Away Sendoff for each day at 6:00pm, a daily exploration of our Jesus’ rescue! So mark these dates on your calendar: July 15th-18th, family night is the 19th. The fun starts at 6:00pm and will end at 8:30pm. (4yr olds-5th grade)
