Sunday Celebration and Guest Preachers

Sunday Celebration

Sunday praise and worship service starts at 10:30 am.

Music Director Ashley Moore and the Voices of Praise bring a mix of traditional, contemporary, and gospel music for all of us to enjoy and participate in.

Every Sunday, we invite a guest preacher to deliver the message. Ordained clergy along with clergy from other faith traditions and even some regular everyday people bring the message of Jesus Christ to life.

Please join us and try something different - and experience what church without a called pastor is like!

Guest Preachers

Currently, our Pastor Triad is vacant and our pulpit is vacant. We call upon our friends, associates, and ordained ministers from all denominations to deliver The Message on Sundays. Pastoral duties are addressed by rotating ministry groups. Please contact the FCCO Deaconate for any questions, concerns, or community care needs.
