frcn operations update

We are excited to announce that we will be holding in-person services starting Sunday, May 31 at 11:00AM! As we begin to transition to in-person services, there are a few important items we want to share to help guide your decision on attending. 


First, your leadership team commits to monitoring COVID-19 updates and follow state guidelines for religious gatherings. Second, we strongly encourage “CDC-defined at-risk groups” to continue to join us online from home. As your Pastor, I want to make this clear, attending church in-person during this season is not a test of your dedication to Christ or a statement of your spiritual maturity. Whether your household chooses to join us in person in the sanctuary or online, we are still a church family and a place to call home.

Please read the following information carefully regarding all our service options (On-Site,Online).
