A Brief History

Several Families, along with Pastor Don and his wife Kathy, dreamed of planting a church with a simple goal: help people connect with God. With the help of the Launch Team of about 45 people committed to seeing this dream become a reality, The Fountains Fellowship Church began weekly services on Easter Sunday, April 12, 2009. That first Sunday, over 330 people met in the Cafetorium of the H.F. Stevens Middle School.

Fear of the lord is a life-giving fountain; it offers escape from the snares of death.
— Proverbs 14:27 (NLT)

From the beginning, The Fountains, focused on reaching out to the non-churched and church-hurt community, building relationships through special events and small groups meeting throughout the city. The life-giving message of the Gospel, the passion and joy of Sunday worship, and the relevant style of The Fountains Fellowship Church brought immediate growth. The attendance at the one year anniversary Easter service grew to 512 with 145 people committing their lives to Christ during that first year.

God is at work at The Fountains Fellowship Church. We invite you to see for yourself how exciting church can be when the focus is clear and relevant and people are free to go after God with passion!
