The Worship and Arts Center was built to increase seating for our Ignite Modern Worship service and to increase engagement as an arts center that serves as a blessing to our city for worship services, dramas, musical presentations, and other events.
We offer resource materials relating to all of our weekly classes and other items such as devotional books, Bibles, gifts, children’s books, books on parenting and the family, grief, and much more.
Our bookstore is located on the second floor of Building A and is managed by FPC member Stacey Olive-Erwin. For more information, please call 864.565.0920.
