In 1982, Bill Krause, pastor at Family Community Church, left a successful business career to enter the full-time ministry. For the next two years he attended Rhema Bible Training Center. During the time prior to graduation, God dropped in his heart a vision for a church and the plan to carry out that vision. Upon completion of his training in Tulsa, God sent Bill and his family to Sacramento, California to put God’s plan into action.
On July 5, 1985, the vision that God had placed in Pastor Krause’s heart came to pass—Family Community Church had its first service. From that day until now God has continued to build a church where He is developing and maturing saints in a powerful way. Currently the church has 500 - 600 people gather to worship on Sundays. In addition to the three services on Sunday and Tuesday midweek service, the church has bible studies and classes during the week.
Family Community Church’s purpose is to bring together people to experience the fullness of God in everyday life. People who attend the church are experiencing and receiving God in a new and exciting way through the teaching of the Word, dynamic and innovative children’s programs, and involvement in both the local church and the surrounding communities. Pastor Bill Krause strongly believes in developing and training the saints, knowing that the power of God will be manifested to change both their lives and the lives of others around them.
There is also a strong commitment to and participation in the surrounding community. Family Community Church has been an active member of the North Highlands Chamber of Commerce, served as fiscal sponsor of North Highlands Children’s Coalition for four years, and a chief partner with many organizations located at the former McClellan Air Force Base, now McClellan Business Park. In addition, the church sponsors the annual Community Clean-up Project, graffiti abatement program, neighborhood clean-ups, and community appreciation dinners for the politicians, sheriff, and fire departments. Each year we host the Community Awards Banquet, and ongoing Senior Services Program. Family Community Church is also the gathering point for the Annual North Highlands Memorial Day parade. We have an active outreach ministry, including door-to-door witnessing, sponsoring local Christian rallies and events, and a Christian bookstore that ministers to people all over the Sacramento area and on the web (www.familybg.com).
Family Community Church is an international church with a worldwide reach. We live stream services during normal service times (Sundays and Tuesdays), and are always finding new ways to connect with an ever-growing online congregation.
Family Community Church, located at 6331 Watt Avenue, is an interdenominational Christian church where all are welcome and encouraged to come. As the name suggests, there is a strong emphasis on the family and the community. Many families have been brought back together, individual lives turned around, and the community positively impacted by the practical everyday teaching that goes forth during the services.
