A Word From Our Pastor

Welcome to Family Church of Lawrence! FCL is here for a very important mission – to teach and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ! We teach the entire Bible at FCL, and how to integrate God’s Word into every aspect of your life.
It’s a place where REAL people care about REAL issues. Issues that you and your family face every day. Family unity, success in the marketplace, the peer pressures of being a student without losing your passion – to be an individual. A place not only to hold on to your dreams – but to expand them – beyond where they are today. It’s a refuge to receive love, without conditions. A place for hope, when all seems lost, and a church where joy becomes contagious. This is the essence of FCL.
We thank you for taking the time to familiarize yourself with our online presence. We would love to meet you in person and have the joy of worshiping the Savior together.

“Therefore receive one another, just as Christ also received us, to the glory of God.” (Romans 15:7).
