Newcomers Lunch

Have you started attending Faith Covenant Church in the last 6-8 months? Want to meet some other folks and learn more about our church and how you can get plugged in? Then make sure you come out to the Newcomer’s Lunch on Sunday, October 17th after the 2nd service.

If you would like to attend or have any questions, please let Pastor James know at pastorjames.bryde@4fcc.org.

Finding Happiness Groups

We all want to be happy. Why is it so few people truly are? Maybe it’s because we’re looking for happiness in the wrong places. If that’s true, where can we find happiness? This series explores what Biblical wisdom and modern science have to say to us about happiness and where we can find it.

New groups are forming and existing groups have openings. Click below to view the options for joining a Growth Group for this churchwide study or stop by our Community Station in the lobby on Sunday.
