FCC Announcements

The Deacon's Discretionary Fund is a means by which FCC is able to help those in financial need. We welcome requests from those in need, from both our congregation and from our community at large. We have funds from grants and money donated. This gives us the opportunity to assist those in acute, temporary, monetary distress, in a discrete and dignified setting. Decisions made regarding requests are made by 3 Deacons who can refer back to the Pastor should they have a question or concern.

If you are in need of assistance, please call the church office at 401-253-7288 or email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. If you would like to donate to this fund, make your check out to the FCC, and note on the "memo" line that it is for the Pastor Discretionary Fund.

We are looking for willing individuals to help out and be able to do the filming of Sunday services, and help with the editing of these videos. We would want to meet with interested parties at 9 a.m. at church, and will figure moving forward from there. Whoever is interested, have them call or email the church at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We have a large collection of religious books donated to the church for anyone to take. They are located in the youth room and the room next door to it. So do check it out and see if one is something of interest to you and you may want.

On Sunday December 9, 2018, The Alternative Christmas Giving Project raised over $10,000 for ten charities 

The purpose of this event is to identify partners in ministry who serve the needs of the community in specific ways that the church is unable to do by itself; and to provide an opportunity to give gifts in the form of donations that will have meaning beyond Christmas Day, in honor or memory of a loved one. The event also provides an opportunity to channel Christmas gift giving in ways that benefit up to ten service organizations that will be represented. It is open to both church members and to members of the community at large. In the coming weeks, more information will be provided regarding the organizations that are participating, the work that they do, and their missions.
