Welcome to Florida Hospital Church! Our mission is loving people into a lifelong friendship with God.
Welcome—Who are we?
FHC is a diverse congregation in Orlando, Florida. Our mission is loving people into a lifelong friendship with God.
We are . . . single, married, divorced, female, male, straight, LGBTQ, poor, rich, old, young. At FHC, we welcome any member of the community to join us in worship. We don’t care if you’re a practicing Christian or got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake. We want to offer you grace and peace as you begin or continue your faith journey.
We are FHC, and we’re all welcome here.
(Welcome message inspired by John Petty, Pastor of All Saints Lutheran Church in Aurora, CO. Edits added by the FHC staff. Read our full welcome here.)
2017 Annual Report
Here you will find a brief snapshot of the ministry at Florida Hospital Church. This is by no means exhaustive, but we hope it gives an opportunity to see who we are and what we’re about by seeing what we’ve been been up to this last year in our annual report.
Worship: 9:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.
Classes: 10:45 a.m.
We offer opportunities for group worship at 9:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m., and engaging bible classes at 10:45 a.m every Saturday. Florida Hospital Church believes in authentic multi-generational and multi-cultural worship. We faithfully gather in Biblically based, culturally relevant and Christ-consumed worship for the purpose of continuing a conversation between God and His people. Our services incorporate everything from ancient traditions to modern elements.

FHC offers two worship opportunities featuring both ancient and modern elements. You may see Scripture offered in a creative video or dramatic presentation, praise God in song with a jazz band or orchestra, and gain insight from a relevant and Christ-centered sermon. Every Saturday, we are given opportunities to accept God’s invitation to worship with visitors from a variety of cultural, spiritual and generational backgrounds. Our hope is that you will be challenged to pursue an authentic and life-changing relationship with your Savior and leave our services with a passion to serve others.
At FHC, we strive to provide an atmosphere of warmth and acceptance. We value authenticity and grace, and care more about you than your fashion sense. Some of our visitors dress very casually, while others wear business or business casual. Our pastors mix it up as well, so please dress as you feel comfortable. We’re just honored to have you as our guest.
Florida Hospital Church began as a ministry to serve patients, guests and staff of the institution known now as Florida Hospital. Although we operate independently of one another, we share denominational connections and enjoy opportunities to come together to serve the community. Find out more about our church history from more than 100 years ago to today.
FHC is part of the Florida Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. Sabbath on the seventh day of the week—Saturday—is so significant that it became our name! While many of our Christian friends have their services on Sunday, we believe that the Biblical “Sabbath” is the day between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. We understand the Sabbath was established in the Garden of Eden and made holy as a commemoration of God’s complete Creation. In the Ten Commandments, God invites us to remember it to keep the Sabbath holy. We also believe that weekly rest is a great reminder of the rest we have in Jesus our Savior.
FHC has programs for children of all ages, from birth to high school. Learn more about our creative and Christ-centered children’s programs.
We have many ways to connect to the FHC Family.

- Attend a class. For visitors new to Christianity, we host a class every Saturday that provides insights into the Bible and understanding the audacity of God’s grace and acceptance.
