Striving to become

living expressions

of God’s extravagant

grace and love.

Each day during Lent , we will post a word of the day on the church’s Facebook and Instagram accounts. We invite you to pause, reflect and post a response on your own social media pages.  Your post should illustrate how you perceive each word of the day. No explanation needed. You can share a photo, poem or even a simple thought.

For a full list of daily words, click HERE.

What is Lent?
 
“Lent is not a race to Easter, but a journey.
It’s being where you are, not where you’re going.”
                                                – Rev. Jim Keat

of the purpose and history of Lent?

Back to VIRTUAL Worship Services

In light of the rising number of COVID cases within Alamance County – as well as the state and nation –  FRUCC has decided to suspend its in-person services once again.  Although this was a particularly difficult decision to make so close to Christmas, the church leadership feels that this is withing everyone’s best interest.

Once again, each week’s worship service will be pre-recorded and then posted for viewing on the weekend.  You can access a recording of each’s week’s service by visiting either of these social media sites:
