We exist to Proclaim Jesus Christ, Share life around the Gospel, and Grow in faith. For recent services and pictures, please check out our Facebook Page:
At our gatherings you can look forward to blended worship, effectual prayer, open communion, expository preaching and the blessing of gathering with fellow worshippers of King Jesus!
Pastor Joe and his wife Tracy have been serving at FCC since there were called by the church in October of 2020. They were first called into ministry in the summer of 2018 and enjoy using their musical talents in the local church as well as pastoring. Pastor Joe has a B.A. in Church Music from Bob Jones University and an M.A. in Christian Counseling from Queens College of Theology. He is passionate about the Gospel, loves people and lives out a desire to see local churches flourish and grow. If you see him or Tracy at church, they are usually trying to keep up with their three children: Jehu, Keziah and Jael.

Our church members are the people who have made a covenant commitment to this body of believers in doctrinal and behavioral practice. This does not represent everyone in our church family though and there are many loved people who attend with us regularly, or when they can or by livestream that we love dearly! And of course, ANYONE is welcome to attend our services and get involved with us as we serve the Lord in St Francis.
Although we are a non-denomination church, we don't believe that God designed churches to function alone! We are part of the Disciple Heritage Fellowship headquartered in Decatur, IL. With this Fellowship, we are able to enjoy sharing resources and leadership development with other like-minded churches, while retaining our individual autonomy as a local church.
