We believe God's plan for the family and the church is to demonstrate what it means to "love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, and mind, and to love others around them."

Fifth Family 


We believe, as a church, that parents are the primary disciple makers of their children and through the parents and the church joining hands, we can develop disciples who Know God, Grow in God, and Go with God. Family worship is a biblical principle seen all throughout Scripture (Psalm 78:1-8). Because of this, we want to build family worship into the hearts of our parents and kids. We are taking the months with a 5th Sunday and dedicating them to family worship.

Every month that has five Sundays we will have 9:45 a.m. programming for kids and no programming at the 8:30 or 11:00 a.m. hour (with the exception of ages 3 and under). We encourage you to worship as a family at 8:30 or 11:00 a.m. 

Parent Commissioning

Parent Commissioning ceremonies (formerly Baby Dedication) will be held on the first Sunday in December and the last Sundays in April and August of each year. In order to participate in the ceremony, you must attend the Parent Commissioning class.

Please email Casey Stewart at caseys@fbcopelika.com to register for the class or for more information.
