Becoming a Member

FPC is a very active congregation comprised of people from all age groups who are Christ-centered and seek to make Him known in all that we do. God has called us to this place. We have a vision for making life-long disciples, caring for one another and the world around us.

The “Discovery Class” is offered, periodically, for new friends. The class gives folks an opportunity to learn more about the Presbyterian faith and to personally get to know Pastor Jeff Smith. It generally lasts 5 Sundays and takes place during the Sunday School hour, 10:00am.

Exploring church membership is something most people take seriously. Whether you have recently moved and wish to “transfer” your membership, feel God’s nudge to connect during a particularly difficult or meaningful season of life, have a newly found passion for the Lord of life, or simply come out of curiosity to learn more about the Presbyterian faith, you are welcome!

Whatever your motivation you will find that our process prepares you not only for membership, but also for ministry. As members of the Body of Jesus Christ, we are all gifted and shaped for kingdom work that is unique to us. This class will help you identify those special things God has given you for His purpose.

DISCOVERY! will begin on Sunday, April 8, 2018 at 10:00am, in the multi-purpose room. If you are looking for a church home or seek to follow Christ with other friends, we invite you to join us!
