Plan your visit
We want you to know what you can expect before you come for a service.
8:30am + 10:30am
Where are we located?
We're located at 317 SE Magazine Road, just southeast of Ankeny High School.
Who goes where?
Our FFC Kids ministry offers a safe and fun environment for children birth–5th grade during the services. Check your child in at the Student Center check-in desk on the south end of the gym before the service.
Celebration Services meet in the Worship Center at 8:30am and 10:30am for teenagers 6th–12th grade and adults, where you'll worship the Lord through song and hear truth from God's Word.
When should you arrive?
Allow 15 minutes, especially if you are checking children in to FFC Kids, our children’s programs. Each of our services are around 75–90 minutes long.
Where should you park?
We have two main parking lots on the east and west sides of the buildings, with entrances on both sides. There are handicap parking spaces on the north side of the building, and designated guest parking spots in the west parking lot.
What about your kids?
Every Sunday, children birth–5th grade can learn from the Bible through creative, fun teaching and age appropriate activities. Check-in begins 15 minutes prior to each service at the reception desk in the Student Center on the south side of the building. After check-in, children are dropped off in their age level rooms.
What should you wear?
We are a casual congregation. You will see everything from shorts and sandals to dresses and jackets. Feel free to wear whatever you'd like! Our only request is that it’s appropriate for a church setting.
What should you bring?
You can bring 3 things to our services: a Bible, an open heart, and a friend. You'll see people with a hard copy Bible as well as on their phones. Every message at First Family Church is based completely in the Word of God. Our teaching team preaches expositionally (verse-by-verse) through entire books of the Bible.Come expecting to hear God’s voice and learn something about Him, and yourself!Lastly, we encourage you to bring a guest! God calls us to share our faith; you never know the impact you can make on someone’s life by a simple invitation.
What's our music like?
The worship style at First Family Church is a blend of contemporary music styles led by praise bands and vocalists to create a worship experience that is a singular part of the worship service as a whole, with the ultimate goal of exalting the Lord Jesus.
New people have discovered, time and time again, that one of the best ways to launch into FFC after visiting a service or two is by attending Discovery Class, our group for new people and families. We'll help you learn more about us and give ample time for Q&A. Find out more and sign up below.
