  • Encourage Christian fellowship opportunities for people who hunt, fish, and shoot.
  • Challenge people to establish and maintain a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • Encourage serving the Lord Jesus.
  • Encourage fellowship with a local body of Christians.

FCS In Action (what we do)

See our main web page for events that we presently host.  We have hosted many other events including:

  • A Texas Hunter Education course
  • A Turkey Shoot (to win turkeys)
  • A Varmint Hunt (for bobcats, coyotes, and foxes)
  • Camping Trips
  • Canoe/Kayak Trips
  • Concealed Handgun License (CHL) Classes
  • Dart (archery) Shoots
  • Deer Hunts (self-guided)
  • Flurry, Trap, and Wobble Trap Shoots
  • Hunting and Gathering (shopping) Trips
  • Laser Tag Games
  • Nights at the Races (car)
  • Promotions
  • Rabbit Hunts
  • Sheep Hunts
  • Shooting Classes
  • Shooting Range Shoots

For hunts and fishing trips a first time guest is commonly paired with the member who brought him or her, a member who knows him or her, an experienced member, or one of the Club officers so he or she will have a better opportunity to learn about the Club, hunting and fishing, and our rules. Minors are required to hunt, shoot, or fish with the man or woman who they are related to or with their sponsor.  FCS members are more than happy to teach newcomers.  We are patient and enjoy sharing what we know.  People of all skill levels attend FCS events – from veterans to first timers.

All adult members and guests who participate in potentially dangerous FCS events must sign a lifetime FCS Members and Guests Release of Liability Waiver.  The parent, guardian, or conservator of a youth who does not have a parent, guardian, or conservator who is an adult FCS member must sign a one time FCS Members and Guests Release of Liability Waiver prior to the youth participating in potentially dangerous FCS activities.  The Release of Liability Waiver is valid until the youth turns 18 years old.

We have devotionals and prayer time at several FCS events.  We have carried out numerous ministry projects including cooking church dinners, making donations to Operation Orphans and Cross Trail Outfitters, taking kids from Kids Outdoors Zone (KOZ) and two churches 5-stand and skeet shooting, roofing a house, helping families move into their new houses, purchasing and installing a water heater for a family in need, donating and delivering wild game to families in need, donating money to a widow, and donating money and diapers to a young family with a newborn.

We invite articles, classified ads, hunting and fishing stories, jokes, links, members’ profiles, pictures, poems, product and service reviews and recommendations, recipes, safety tips, and useful information for sportsmen submissions from supporting FCS adult members.  We invite devotionals, praises, and prayer requests submissions from all FCS adult members.  We may edit and refuse to post submitted materials.  We can only use original submissions unless the author’s work is not copyrighted.  No material on our website or on one of our newsletters may be reproduced in print or electronically without my written/electronic permission.

FCS Membership Information

We have over 285 members.  FCS membership is not required in order to participate in FCS activities.  Church membership or attendance and being a Christian are not required in order to join FCS.  However, the FCS Membership Covenant requires members to uphold the FCS Safety and Shooting Rules, Hunting and Fishing Rules, and Camping Rules (located in the Bylaws) while on FCS events.

FCS adult membership is available to men and women, 18 years old and older, without regard to race, national origin, age, denominational preference, or political persuasion.  Members consist of those men and women who have expressed a desire to be a member by completing an FCS Adult Membership Application and who have paid at least a one-year FCS adult membership due.  The FCS Adult Membership Application only needs to be completed once (it does not need to be completed when a member renews his or her membership).  Participation in events is not a requirement of membership; however, it is strongly encouraged.

FCS Adult Membership Benefits

All supporting FCS members have the following rights:

  • Make amendment proposals to the FCS Bylaws and/or Statement of Faith;
  • Make expenditure proposals;
  • Participate in all supporting FCS member discussions and votes;
  • Check out (borrow) FCS equipment items, videos, and books; and
  • have their articles, hunting and fishing stories, jokes, link recommendations, members’ profiles, pictures, poems, product and service reviews and recommendations, recipes, safety tips, and useful information for sportsmen submissions posted on the FCS website.

All FCS adult members will have their devotional, classified ad, praise, and prayer request submissions posted on the FCS website.

The main difference between supporting FCS adult members and FCS adult members is supporting FCS adult members are current in their dues.

New and renewing FCS adult members do not receive an FCS Gear membership benefit; however, they (and non-members) can purchase FCS Gear at any time.

The success of FCS is due to the Lord’s blessing and to the dedication of many volunteers.

Please contact Randy Rowley at randywrowley@gmail.com or 512-922-2484 if you have any questions.
