We will continue to live-stream our Sunday worship service right here on our website and on Facebook Live. Go to the "Watch Live" page for links to the different livestream platform options. You are invited to gather with the FBCC family in our Worship Center or online for worship services each Sunday at 10:30 am. Sunday morning Bible studies will resume on-campus in the coming weeks.
