A Typical Sunday

  • 9:30 a.m. Choir Rehearsal
  • 10:30 a.m. Worship with Nursery Care & Children’s Programming

Open the doors to FCC on a Sunday morning and you will hear the greetings of friends, the playful voices of children, and the chatter of the choir getting ready to sing. You will see jeans, shorts, skirts, dresses, maybe a tie, and a therapy dog or two. You will be greeted at the door and provided with an order of worship. Several folks will welcome you and introduce themselves.

A fully equipped nursery is available on the second floor for infant or toddler care or you are welcome to rock your baby in chairs provided in the sanctuary. Children are welcome to begin in worship and invited to take part in a children’s moment before being escorted to their classes with their teachers. We plan carefully for the safety of the children in our care. All our teachers and nursery care providers must undergo a background check and FCC provides dual custody supervision of children and youth. Parents are always invited to contribute to our efforts.

We celebrate the Lord’s Table every Sunday as stewards of what God offers to any who wish to receive the bread of life and cup of hope. The homemade bread (and a gluten-free option) and grape juice or white wine are distributed in trays or occasionally you are invited to receive by coming forward to the table to partake. Please feel free to participate or pass.

Pastor Karen will greet everyone following the service and coffee, snacks, and conversations will be in the friendship hall. The restrooms are also located in this area.

Make yourself comfortable in our sanctuary and take a moment to look at the historic stained glass windows. We pray you will find God’s peace and deep joy here in this beautiful and sacred space.

You would bless us with your presence on Sunday! Please feel free to call us at 618-457-6817 or email us at office@cdalefcc.org should you have any questions or if we can do anything to assist your visit.
