Registration for High School Refuge: Coming Soon
FCC Student Ministry exists to help lead students in authentic faith.
Our Core Values
We are passionate about the following things:
1. Relationships: we are all about connecting students into community. We do this by offering small groups and other opportunities to connect outside of normal “church”.
2. Showing Compassion: We want students who get connected with our Student Ministry to know they they are loved. We also want others who are not apart of our church to know they we love them too. We do this through serving others around us. We need to love people like Jesus loves them and us!
3. Growing Deeper: We want students to know that just simply attending church isn’t enough, so that’s why we challenge them to grow deeper in their relationship with God. We do this thru CIY Move, Missions trips, weekend retreats, and Bible Studies.
