Membership Info

We have over 290 members.  FCS membership is not required in order to participate in FCS events.  Church membership or attendance and being a Christian are not required in order to join FCS.  Those who wish to join must pledge that they will adhere to the FCS Safety and Shooting Rules, Hunting and Fishing Rules, and Camping Rules (located in the Bylaws) while on FCS events.

FCS 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 Membership Application, have paid at least a one-year FCS membership due, and have signed an FCS Release of Liability Waiver.  The FCS Membership Application and Release of Liability Waiver only need to be completed once (they do not need to be completed again when a member renews his or her membership).

Membership dues are used to pay FCS expenses.  However, membership is not required in order to participate in our events.  We have people who have attended our events for years who have never joined.  We also have people who joined years ago and pay their dues regularly, but have never attended one of our events (they just want to support a Christian hunting/fishing/shooting club?).

Participation in events is not a requirement of membership; however, it is strongly encouraged. The more that a person participates the more likely it is that he or she will feel that he or she is a part of the organization.  It is also more likely that he or she will develop friendships.  It’s a totally different thing to shoot sporting clays with a bunch of strangers than it is to shoot with a bunch of friends, for example.

New and renewing FCS members do not receive a FCS Gear membership benefit; however, anyone can purchase FCS Gear at any time.

Supporting FCS members benefits include:

  • 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, links recommendations, members’ profile, pictures, poems, products and services reviews and recommendations, recipes, safety tips, and useful information for sportsmen submissions posted on the FCS website.

All FCS members will have their devotionals, classified ads, praises, and prayer requests submissions posted on the FCS website.

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

FCS membership begins when we receive an applicant’s FCS Membership Application and dues payment.

Minors cannot become members until they turn 18. All minors who do not have a parent, guardian, or conservator who is a FCS member are required to complete a Liability Waiver prior to participation in FCS events.  All minors must secure parental, guardian, or conservator permission in order to participate in FCS events and purchase FCS Gear.  For minors who do not have a parent, guardian, or conservator who can come to events to supervise them, we may be able to loan them one.

Bible verse of the day
