It began in February of 2004 as a vision for a youth and community outreach center. On October of the same year, we broke ground for the renovation of the "Old Firehouse."
After 2 1/2 years, the renovations were completed.
The FCC Firehouse is used for youth, church and community events. It is ideal for many activities such as: bridal and baby showers, birthday parties, family reunions and even company meetings. It consists of the Bay Area (a large multi-purpose room), a well-equipped kitchen, the Fireside Room (smaller general purpose area), and a game room.
The FCC Firehouse is availble for individual or group rentals depending on availability. For more information look at the document listed below or give us a call at 765-473-3105.
