FGC has always nurtured a strong volunteer base. Jesus himself was the best example of one who humbled Himself to serve others (Philippians 2:1-8). From lead pastor Russell Knowles on down, both our full-time staff and volunteer leaders and workers seek to follow the example of Christ in everything we do. We welcome the involvement of new members in the various ministries of our church. There is joy in serving others!
We strive for a “blended” worship experience, combining the best of new worship,classic worship, and enduring hymns. Our goal is not to entertain, but to encourage all to enter into worshipping an “audience of One”. Several worship leaders alternately lead a team of singers and musicians each week.
Pastor Russell combines compelling messages with multimedia support to present weekly sermons with lasting impact. We regularly enjoy special music, interpretive dance and a variety of other creative presentations to reinforce the reality of “Christ in you, the hope of glory”.
We are conveniently located on the Bedford-Hammonds Plains border at 2256 Larry Uteck Blvd. at Hammonds Plains Road. We are 5 minutes from multiple Hwy. 102 exits, and under 30
minutes driving time from most communities in Halifax, Dartmouth, Sackville, Spryfield, Timberlea and Tantallon.
