It’s time for our annual Congregational Survey!

Open through Sunday, March 3

Our annual survey is exceptionally helpful to our staff and leadership teams. It is one way we gauge if our ministries fulfill our mission of being a loving community of disciple-makers, serving and reaching generations with the gospel in our city and around the world.

The survey will be live until Sunday, March 3 and is available for anyone 16 years or older who considers FAC their church. It should take about 8 minutes to complete! If you require a paper copy, please contact the church office.

Membership Class

If you are interested in exploring membership at First Alliance Church, please join us this Sunday and Sunday, March 3 at 11:00am in the Conference Room! We will discuss what it means to be a member, how to become a member, and provide background about The Alliance and FAC. Both sessions are required.

This Sunday


College Ministry Small Group

Living Room

Join Josh Lynch and Kendall McKee in this class for college students about finances, stewardship, and how to be faithful with what you have now.

Contagious Faith

Lower Auditorium Room 13

As disciples of Christ, we are called to share the gospel, but few of us are naturally comfortable with evangelism. We wrestle with internal fears, a lack of preparation, and the sense that reaching out to others might force us to act like someone we’re not. What if we could find a way to talk about Jesus that fits our personalities, makes us feel confident, and ignites a fire in others? Learn more.

GriefShare is a safe, welcoming place where people understand the difficult emotions of grief. Over 13 weeks, you’ll find relief and comfort as you learn what to expect in the days ahead and how to navigate your personal grief process. Since there are no neat, orderly stages of grief, you’ll learn helpful ways of coping with grief, in all its unpredictability—and gain solid support each step of the way.
