section of the Church Auditorium.
Other Delights About FCC Church in General
- Two very cool pastors who teach ONLY from the Bible. No made up stuff. No "Our church believes..." stuff. The only thing that comes out the Pastors' mouths is "the Bible says..." stuff. :-)
- No judgemental here. You will notice a lot of people there wear a special T-shirt* that says on front, "Me Too". This means that "..Everyone is special in Gods eyes. No one is perfect. You make mistakes? ME TOO! We are all loved by God and we all have our own problems, but we are no different and no better than anyone else". Me too! :-)
*[We have these 'Me Too' T-Shirts for Deaf, too! In ASL fingerspelling letters, of course.]
- A tremendous, awesome performing stage! This stage has 3 huge movie-type wall SCREENS to be sure you can see everything from as far away as their balconies! (Deaf typically sit in the very front, but the screens are also awesome to watch story/movie clips, read along with Bible verses, music lyrics, church events, etc.
- Awesome music! FCC church has LOUD (I'm talking so loud that some folks elect to use ear plugs), LIVE music, guitars (acoustic and electric), bongos, violins, pianos, keyboards, drums, a fleet of talented singers, etc! Not only is the music live, but there is a terrific mix of music from Christian Rock, to Gospel, to Christian Rap! Every week is a delightful surprise of music variety!
- Kids ministry - FCC/Flatirons Community Church has such an amazing Children's Church program that they get over 100 new kids per month! Enough said? The staff goes through intense training, background checks, and workshops to learn the best of educating your dear ones about Jesus. What a thrill to walk by the children's rooms and see them happily singing a song about how much God loves them! And yes, there are interpreters there for the Children's Ministry as well!
- Folks who will pray with and specially for you - when church has finished for the day - there is a group of folks just waiting at the front of the church to pray with you, pray for you, and help you talk to God. This leaves such an awesome feeling in your stomach and mind.
- Tattoo wall - YES can you believe I said 'tattoo wall'? There is a section of this building that has photos of church members tattoos! See, very open-minded church! This wall is so cool to look at and explore looking at all the different ways folks have inked up! There are also a lot of cool Bible verses made from the tats. You gotta see this wall!
- Classes to help you with problems in life. Off the top of my head, FCC has special groups to help with: grief, divorce, single life, addiction, etc. Also workshops!
- Captioned videos! Just look for the CC words / symbol
- There is so much more to list, but I think you're getting the gist of it, yes?
Here is what our friend(s) love the minute they first arrive:
Running late to get to church and haven't had breakfast yet?
included are free bagels, cream cheese, tea, hot coffee, hot chocolate, cookies,
etc! Yum! ;-)
You know the feeling of when you tell someone, "You have to go and see for yourself to experience what I'm talking about.."?
Go and check it out! FCC is an amazing experience - for both Deaf and hearing.
