Worship is the heart of our life as a church.

When: Sundays at 10:00 AM

Where: 6501 Wydown Blvd. 63105, livestreaming to facebook and youtube.

On Sundays the community gathers to give thanks, celebrate, meditate, pray, confess, and hear the word of God. We seek a worship experience that speaks to both our heads and our hearts. As an Open and Affirming congregation, we welcome persons of all ages, abilities, races, genders, sexual orientations, and religious or political persuasions.

Our worship services usually last about an hour and are led by our Staff Team, lay members, and musicians. We offer Communion on the first Sunday of each month, and all are welcome to the table. Children are always welcome in worship, either at the "Prayground" at the front of the sanctuary or in the pews. 

Sunday Morning Livestream

If you are unable to worship with us in person or if you want to revisit Sunday's worship, we livestream our worship services. Beginning at 10:00 am each Sunday, you can watch live from your computer, tablet, or smart phone on our facebook and YouTube pages. The videos are saved on the pages so you can revisit worship services and see what else we're up to!


Music is an important part of our congregational life.

Music is central to worship at FCC! We take pride in programming music from a diversity of times, places, and people, especially living composers. 

Our Music Ministry Team includes:


  • a Chancel Choir of professional vocalists and volunteers, which sings for Sunday services September-May and special services.
  • Handbell Ringers, an all-volunteer ensemble of handbell enthusiasts. Our bell choir is on hiatus, but we hope to begin again soon!
  • Summer Music Teams of instrumentalists and vocalists, who lead our musical worship from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
  • Instrumental Music from both adults and children.


We welcome children in the life of our congregation.

From Sunday School to fellowship opportunities to exciting family events, we strive to help young people experience the love of God.

  • Worship & Sunday School: Children are always welcome in worship, either at the "Prayground" at the front of the sanctuary or in the pews. Each Sunday after the children's moment toward the beginning of worship, elementary children are invited to go to Sunday school with our Minister of Faith Formation, Joyce Haynes McCowan. 

  • Family Events: Periodically throughout the year we offer time and space for families to engage with each other through fellowship and fun!
  • Tweens: Our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders meet on the third Friday of the month from September-May for meals and engaging activities to get to know the church and each other.
  • Confirmation: We offer Confirmation for 7th-8th Graders every other year, to learn about the UCC and our congregation, and to grow in their faith. 


We have a thinking faith.

We offer periodic adult ministry opportunities, like seasonal book studies, documentary viewings, and guest speakers. All are welcome at our regular groups as well.
