Newcomers:  Times of Service / What to Expect

 

Three worship services:  9:00 am and 10:30 am in the sanctuary, 10:31 am casual gym service with contemporary music. These three services have the same message and are designed to last approximately 65 minutes.

Parking: There is visitor parking near the canopy, close to the front doors. You are welcome to park there.

Entering the building: Greeters are there to welcome you. Feel free to ask them any questions you may have about where your children go to class, where teens meet, where the nursery is, etc. They will introduce you to someone who can take you to any area of the building you need to go.

What to Wear:  Business casual is the general attire. You will also see blue jeans. Wear what you are comfortable in. We are in a resort area with 101 lakes. We do request no beach wear, please.

Who will I see?  
We are a cross section of the population of our county and the tri-state area. If you live in our area, there are many people you already know who attend FMC and are at the same stage in life as you are. There is a noticeable number of small business owners, community leaders, and people in management who attend here as well.
 
Worship Style
Sanctuary services
have a blended worship style. The best of the old, traditional songs with new choruses too. A band/orchestra accompanies the worship team. The music is live and many in the congregation clap along with the singing. Videos are used regularly, too.
10:31 casual gym service
has contemporary music. Round tables and chairs are provided for seating so you may enjoy your coffee and donuts while you worship. The message from the 9:00 am sanctuary service is projected on the big screen for this service.
