Welcome to FPCLY

Our Mission

Celebrating God’s grace, Inspiring the next generation for Christ… each and every day!!!


Our Theology

Trinitarian (God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit)

Reformed… “For it is by grace through faith that we have been saved” (Eph. 2:8)

One body called the Church… a community of faith, hope, love, and witness.



Join us Sundays at 10:30 am!

Worship is at the very heart of the church’s life; all that the church is and does is rooted in its worship! Our traditional worship services are held in our beautiful sanctuary each Sunday and are open to all.  Each service has a moment for young children to come to the front for a short message followed by additional learning activities through Worship Workshop.  We also have a nursery available for infants and toddlers.

Infants & Children in Worship

All children are welcome at FPC… no ifs, ands, or buts about it!

Nursery is available starting at 9:00 am during Spiritual Growth classes and continues through Worship. The nursery is available for infants and toddlers on the Ground Floor. Staff and volunteers will be there to greet you and help you in any way you need.

For children attending worship, feel free to visit the Spiritual Growth Worship Cart, which can be found in the Narthex just before you enter the Sanctuary. It has books, tools to help memorization, puzzles, and other educational items available to any and all children during Worship!

During worship, following the children’s moment, there are two different educational opportunities for children.  These opportunities are to help children learn about worship elements, become familiar with Bible stories and people, and develop spiritually in an engaging, age-appropriate way. All children are brought back to the Narthex following Worship, unless otherwise noted.

Worship Workshop is for 3- & 4-year-olds and meets in Room 9 on the Ground Floor.

Gateways to Worship is for Kindergartners and 1st graders and meets in the Library on the Main Level.
