Welcome to First Pentecostal Church!  We are excited that you are considering visiting our church. We know that first visits to a strange place can sometimes make you apprehensive, even intimidated at times. We want to dispel any reservations you might have before you come by informing you as much as we can, so that you can come, relax and worship Christ. We have prepared some pages that will help you get acquainted with us and maybe enhance your first visit.

 I won't know anyone, where will I sit?
As soon as you walk through the doors of our Worship Center, someone will greet you and welcome you to our church. Our friendly ushers and greeters will help you find the nursery for your small children, direct your older children to their class, help you with any special needs you may have and even help you find a comfortable place to sit. If you don't know anyone when you arrive, we guarantee you will before you leave! If it makes you feel better to know someone before you arrive, contact us today and meet someone over the phone, or arrange to meet us in person.

What Should I Wear?
As a visitor, you shouldn't worry about what you wear to our services. You are welcome to our church in whatever you feel comfortable wearing. However, if you are conscious of what you are wearing compared to others, we certainly don't want that to be a distraction for you. For our Sunday service, most of our congregation wears business style clothing... ties and slacks for men, dresses for women. Wednesdays are a little more casual... slacks or jeans for men, skirts for women. We are not concerned with what you wear. It's only important to us that you feel comfortable.

Do You Offer A Contemporary Worship Service?
FPC is whole heartedly committed to a unified worship service. We proudly offer a wide variety of music in every service. Whether you enjoy traditional, contemporary, southern or black gospel music styles,FPC will minister to you. Music has the power to speak to the heart and, at FPC, we know that the experience of worship prepares the heart to receive the message that God has for you. We focus on creating an upbeat and encouraging worship experience that allows you to worship God in diverse ways each week. Our styles of worship vary from week to week so that we can touch the hearts of all cultures who are coming together to worship with us.

What kind of church is FPC? 
FPC is affiliated with the United Pentecostal Church International. That said, we are not exclusionary and we welcome anyone, no matter what background or religious affiliation, to visit and become a part of our church.

Will I have to say anything or be singled out in any way?
At FPC, you'll never be put on the spot, never singled out, and never embarrassed. Our hope is that you'll let the service be our gift to you and that you'll know we're here for you! We love our guests at FPC!

What should I expect in church? 
Sunday services are usually about 2 hours long, friendly and casual, with a mixture of worship, music, prayer, preaching and teaching. You can be assured the service will be exciting and that its never boring. Members and visitors are free and encouraged to worship in the way they choose.If it’s been a long time since you’ve been to church, FPC is a great church to come back to!  We are committed to meeting you right where you are at, and when you're ready, to invite you to come to know Jesus Christ. 

Now, take a deep breath! 
We know it can be scary trying out a church for the first time. We hope that getting some of this “stuff” out of the way not only encourages you to join us for church, but also helps you to connect with the hope and encouragement that God has for you!
