Stacy and her husband Michael have four children, Katelyn (6), Olivia (4) and twins Aubrey and Scarlett (6 months old); and two dogs, Kenna and Bella.

“I enjoy gardening and cooking with my family. We also enjoy traveling, especially to Disney World. When I can find a few free moments, I like to read and belong to a book club. I appreciate how friendly and helpful everyone has been and look forward to getting to know the children, youth and congregation.”

Sunday School & Youth Group
8:45 a.m. Sundays – There is a Sunday school class for all children age 4 through high school:

      • age 4 through grade 1
      • grades 2 and 3
      • grades 4 and 5
      • grades 6 and 7
      • grades 8 through 12

Youth Group
Open to all youth in grades 8 – 12.  Meets the first and third Sunday of each month, between 5 pm and 7 pm, at the church.  Unless otherwise announced.  (The youth need to pay attention to the bulletin, verbal announcements in church, and/or the FRC Youth Group Facebook page for updates and changes)


Open to all youth in grades 5 – 7.  Meets the second Sunday of each month, between 5 – 7, here at the church.  Unless otherwise announced.   Usually I will not schedule activities that combine groups, but it does happen occasionally.

Wednesday Night Activities
Confirmation:   Open to all youth in grade 8.  
Youth Choir & Bells also meets on Wednesday (See Choirs and Music Programs Tab).  Many youth gather early (before whatever events they are taking part in), to share the Wednesday night meal  (5:30 pm.)  They will often do homework or just yack with each other, too.

Other special events or service opportunities may be scheduled throughout the year.  Again – pay attention to the FB page.

Summer time

Regularly schedule meetings do not occur, but youth should pay attention to the FB page and/or bulletin/church announcements for special events.  For example, (and you can go ahead and put this on the page, Rick, if you want to),  Youth Group will gather at the Stinocher’s for an afternoon picnic and tubing extravaganza.  Also, sometime this summer there will be a combined Youth Group/Genesis trip… somewhere fun.SundaySCHOOL (2)
