No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey,
you are welcome here!
We of FCC hope and believe that you will experience this slogan of our denomination, the United Church of Christ, and the radical hospitality and inclusive love demonstrated by Jesus of Nazareth when you worship with us.
As an “Open and Affirming” community, we affirm that people of all races, nationalities, sexual orientations, incomes, and mental and physical abilities are equally loved and forgiven by God. We are currently pursuing a partnership and worshipping once a month with Filipino-American Evangelical UCC and increasingly becoming a more diverse multi-cultural community.
