Fountain Street Church is about deeds more than creeds.
About liberation more than salvation.
About justice more than righteousness.
If these principles strike a chord with you, please visit us.

What's New?

For future reference, here is our emergency closing procedure & severe weather policy: on Sundays, we consider closing if the Grand Rapids Police Department declares a state of emergency for downtown.


FSC folks gathered after worship on Sunday, December 27, to show our friendship and support for the West Michigan Islamic Community. Our group photo is visible on the "Change The World" slide, or here.
FSC and the Islamic Center on East Paris have co-celebrated both Ramadan and Hajj for several years now, inviting members of the non Islamic community to come and learn and eat with our friends. After several notable anti-Islamic actions recently and as a religious minority ourselves, we feel it essential to stand up for our friends and against religious intolerance.
