Our Mission as a Church
"Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ by nurturing the congregation,
ministering to the community and around the world, and by providing a place for
inspiring worship, study, and authentic Christian fellowship.

Music and Dance


Music is an important form of worship at Flat Rock. The choir averages about ten people and is always eager  and excited to welcome new members.   Our choir director, Mrs. Emily Fields, also directs a Liturgical Dance group (aged 12 and up) which has added  so much to our worship experience.  Flat Rock also plays host as needed for piano lessons for many of our young people.   

God's Space for Children

We play together, sing, and study the Bible.  We currently are working on a Christmas play that is
written, produced, and sung by the children.   Meeting time is Wednesday nights 6:30-7:30pm.
