CHURCH ON THE LAWN
During this unique season we are gathering for outdoor worship in a beautiful outdoor space on our FBC Lawn! At these casual outdoor services you can expect time to sing together, biblical teaching, and a community of people that will welcome you with a smile (even if it’s behind a mask!) We know that coming back to church or visiting a church for the first time can be intimidating. This should answer most of your questions and let you know what to expect.
