Calendar

FCS is a growing, dynamic ministry.  For eleven out of the last fourteen years we have had far more events than there are weeks in the year.  As we are limited by the hunting seasons for specific animals and birds we frequently have several events occurring simultaneously.  For details on our most imminent events see our Upcoming Events web page.
