We welcome new neighbors, first-time visitors, soldiers from Ft. Bragg, doubters, seekers, and eager disciples in search of a church home. The start of the year and heading into Easter is a great time to make a new spiritual start and seek God with us. We know it is awkward to walk into a new church by yourself or as a family, so we want to make things as easy as possible for you. Here's an introduction to worship at Flat Branch so you can know what to expect.
First of all, we literally have acres of parking! You can park in the paved area in front of our Fellowship Hall, or any of the grassy areas on either side of Darroch Rd. For Sunday School, most members and guests enter through our Fellowship Hall, and for worship guests come to the main sanctuary doors.
Nursery is available for infants and very small toddlers upstairs over the Fellowship Hall during worship. Nursery volunteers are in place by 10:45 AM. Bathrooms are directly across the hall from the nursery. Children age 2 and up come to worship with their parents, where we have a Children's Sermon early in the service, and kids through elementary age are dismissed to Children's Church afterwards. They will have additonal Bible lessons appropriate for their age. Middle School and High School Youth stay with the adults in worship.
Flat Branch worships God in a traditional but laid-back style with some blended contemporary elements. Our members and friends cover all ages from babies up to over 90 years old., Most dress casually for worship, but a few like to dress more formally, especially in winter. We do our announcements and a warm Southern "Meet And Greet" time before we settle in for formal worship. You can sit tight where you are and our members will come and greet you.
The central feature of Presbyterian worship is the reading and proclamation of God's Word. We welcome all people and emphasize the unchanging nature of God's love in Jesus Christ. We also include creeds like the Apostles' Creed and the Lord's Prayer as shared elements of worship.
Here are some scenes from worship at Christmas, Easter, baptisms, and other times of the year, as well as a couple of shots of our lovely sanctuary. We always have room for you and those you hold dear!

We Are Home!
The Flat Branch community is pleased to announce that our Church is in the home stretch of return to our customary Spiritual Life and Social Engagement. Last Sunday, we came together for Sunday Service in our beautiful Sanctuary and we plan to continue worshipping there on Sundays. Congregants will continue to be asked to observe the rules of social distancing and use only those pews which are not roped off. In addition, at the conclusion of the Service, the Congregation will be asked to leave by rows to avoid a bottleneck at the Sanctuary doors. We are also asking that all Congregants wear masks while in the Sanctuary. By observing these few restrictions, we hope to keep everyone safe and healthy. Any members of the Congregation who do not feel comfortable about attending the Service in the Sanctuary are welcome to remain in their cars in the Church parking lot and listen to the Service on their car radios at 92.7 FM. We are privileged to welcome Rev. Meredith Riedel as our guest and minister for this week's Service. We look forward to seeing you all.
Printed Programs will be available in the Narthex as usual. A complete program is also available on the Sunday Bulletin (newly added) page of this website. You are welcome to copy and paste it into a document and print it for yourself or open it in your phone or other device so you will have it for the Service.
Vacation Bible School
As a result of the current restrictions in North Carolina, Flat Branch has had to cancel its Vacation Bible School for this summer. However, our Church's youngest members were still in our thoughts and prayers. The church's teaching faculty has assembled age appropriate programs for each of the young people in our Congregation. These bags of fun and religious education contain reading material, crafts, and thought-provoking conversation starters which are suitable for the whole family. We wish everyone a great summer and look forward to seeing you soon!
