We at FPC, are a diverse congregation, filled with long time members alongside new members; filled with multi-generational families as well as couples and individuals. We believe that each person is important to the community of faith. That each person has God given gifts and talents. That each person is invited to use those gifts and talents to worship and serve God.

We have got a place for you!


Our Staff

Pastor & Head of Staff – Rev. Dr. Jason T. Link

Dr. J has been leading FPC since 2015. He has a real heart for the community and is always seeking ways of connecting and opening the church to the community. Dr. J also enjoys teaching and preaching, and so each week you will find him not just delivering the Message on Sunday mornings, but also leading a Bible Studies and a Sunday School Class. But don’t think he is all business – he also enjoys being outdoors, running and doing woodworking. Dr. J has been married to his wife Krista, for 17 years and together they have 2 marvelous and very talented kids, Owen & Isabel.

Organist & Music Director – Susie Locklear

Our musical marvel Susie, has been playing and directing at FPC for many years. She enjoys introducing us to a wide variety of music, and even gets us to stand up and clap along from time to time. Susie plays the organ and piano, along with directing the Chancel Choir, Choir Plus (children’s choir) and the Old Rock Ringers (bell choir). Susie has 3 adult children, Jonathan, Allyson and Katy, and is married to Keith, better known as “Buzz.”

Office Manager – Tammy Arthur

Bulletins, financial reports, photocopies, phone calls, emails and much more – all handled with seemingly effortless ease by Tammy. Hers will be the voice you will hear when you call the Church Office, and she will be the one sending the emails reminding of upcoming events in the life of the church. Tammy keeps busy outside of work keeping up with her daughter Sarah’s active athletic schedules.

Child Care Attendants – Joy Wells & Meagin Depew

At FPC we seek to provide a safe and comfortable place for our youngest members to learn and grow. And we are fortunate to have Joy & Meagin serve those youngest members. Joy & Meagin serve in the Nursery at the church during Sunday School & Worship. Meagin is a student at OUC studying nursing, and Joy along with her husband Greg, share the joy of raising their 2 daughters, Payton & Kate.

Lawn Care Specialist – Kevin Blevins

There is a lot of grass to mow & flower beds to weed, and we are fortunate to have Kevin on our team to take care of it all. First impressions matter, and Kevin keeps the FPC campus looking good to give that great first impression to all who come on to the campus. When Kevin is not mowing the grass at FPC, you can often find him chasing around a little white ball on a golf course, or enjoying spending time with his wife Lisa.
