FPC provides ample parking in two lots, one in front of our main campus and one just to the north of Texas Street. Spots are marked and designated for handicap parking as well as parking for those 70 and older (directly in front of office building and Chapel), as well as designated visitor parking (directly across the street from the main Sanctuary entrance). Please watch for posted signage and park clear of crosswalks so that pedestrians and those mobility impaired can cross safely.

FPC loves having children as part of the community of faith and has several Sunday morning options for them.
