WHAT TO EXPECT
ARRIVE AT FMBC
We are located at 59 Chestnut Drive SW, Concord NC 28025 - We recommend getting here about 15 minutes early so our First Impression Team can take care of you.
FIND A SPOT
Our parking team will help direct you to our “First Time Guest” spots. Be sure to turn your blinkers on to indicate that you are a first time guest.
If you have children, a friendly First Impression Team Member will walk you through the check-in process from start to finish.
Feel free to stop by our "Grab and Go" station to get yourself a free cup of coffee or tea and a pastry. Please be sure to place a lid on your beverage.
Get ready for an awesome worship service! You can expect to be led in worship songs, learn how you can connect & partner with us in ministry, and then receive a relevant message from our pastor.
COME SAY HI
We’d love to meet you! You may attend our Newcomers Gathering following worship. You can fill out a Welcome Card and receive a FREE gift for worshipping with us.
JOIN US AGAIN
Don't forget to pick up the kids and join us again next weekend for another awesome service!
Our 9:30 am service is our contemporary worship service; while our 11:30 am service is a more traditional worship service. We have one service throughout the summer that starts at 10:00 am. That schedule usually runs from mid-June to mid-august and is a blended, family-style worship experience where youth and adults worship together.
*Summer schedule runs from mid-June to mid-August.
We offer nursery care for all little ones who are not yet school-aged. The Nursery classes include "Walkers & Runners" -- ages 24 months through 4 years old (as well as 5 year-olds who have not yet attended kindergarten); and "Cribbers & Crawlers" -- ages 3 months through 24 months. After your child is checked in, they will be taken care of and looked after by our Noah's Ark Nursery team (who have all undergone background checks).
During the 9:30 am and 11:30 am worship services, we offer a youth worship experience. This fun, loud, and awesome opportunity is for kids and teens in grades K-12. After check-in, the youth have a unique praise & worship experience followed by break out sections where they discuss the same topics presented in adult worship, but on a level that applies to them.
Our Hub is the home to our "Know-it-all" team. If you have any questions during your time at FMBC these are the people to ask. They can help with giving, event sign-up, church merch, and much more. Feel free to stop by if you are unsure about anything.
Next Step Gathering
Our Next Step Gathering is our chance to meet you and thank you for joining us! Following each service, find a next step team member and they will take you to a quick 5-minute session so that we can get acquainted and you can get your FREE gift.
Growth Groups are small group bible study opportunities, where we take a deeper dive into the material preached during Sunday worship services. We offer Growth Groups on Sunday mornings, and in the afternoon & evening on Wednesdays.
