Loving Christ. Loving One Another. Loving The City.



Welcome to the Student pages! If your life is dictated by extra-curricular activities and exam schedules, and “summer break” are some of your favorite words, you’ve reached the right place. Here at FPC, we know that the Lord isn’t just preparing you to make an impact later. He has something great planned for you now, and our Associate for Youth Ministry, Emily Yergler, and Director of University Ministries, Alex Solorio, are excited to help you find that out. We look forward to talking to you soon!
