who we are

If you are looking for a church where everyone has their act together, you are looking in the wrong place! Family Fellowship is a church consisting of REAL people; everyday people just like you.

When we gather each Sunday, the messages aren't on lofty topics that people don't understand. They are not presented using archaic language and seminary terms. Instead, God's Word is made PLAIN and SIMPLE; some call it RELEVANT!

That is what Family Fellowship is in a nutshell:


what to expect

Expect to find a great place to worship.

Can you wear jeans? Absolutely. A suit and tie? Sure can. We’re much more interested in you being here than what you have on. So bring your children, bring your teens and invite a friend. We’re all ages here, just like a big family.

Our music reflects our theology. Sometimes it’s fast and fun and other times it’s reflective and thoughtful.

Our children’s leaders are pretty much incredible.  Having been engaged in songs and crafts as they learn to follow Jesus, the smile on your child's face following the service will tell the story louder than words.

If your little ones are nursery size, you’ll find the hearts of our nursery workers to be super-sized. They know just what it takes to love your little one while you spend some time worshiping.

If you’re looking to get connected, stop by the Welcome Center in the Plaza where someone can help you with just about anything related to Family Fellowship.
