FCC Student Ministry exists to 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.

Medical Release Form
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.
Join us on October 21 & 24* where our students will be leading during our regularly schedule church services. Junior High & High School students will serve in several roles including: door greeters, ushers, serving communion & leading worship. Our Student Pastor, Matt Churchill, will be preaching and our 1st-5th grade students involved in Kidz Club will also be performing. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to worship with our entire congregation.
