About Faith Fellowship Church:

Faith Fellowship Church is a Non-Denominational, Bible based fellowship that began in 2004 with its first Worship Service in barn with 30 attending. In 2004 the newly formed Faith Fellowship Church bought what was a run-down restaurant converted to accommodate the growing family in discipleship, worship and fellowship. A building program began in mid 2006 and had its first service in the new/temporary Worship Center in early 2007. We are currently in another building phase for a new fellowship/Multi-purpose building that is scheduled to begin in the Spring of 2009. Average attendance is currently 200.
