Family Worship Center
Who is FWC?

Family Worship Center is a friendly community of Christians living in and around Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.  Let us tell you a little history of how Family Worship Center became who it is today.

In 1929 a group of people in Door County became filled with the Holy Spirit and began regular church meetings between Sister Bay and Baileys Harbor. In 1946 that group joined with the church plant of the First Assemblies of God Church on Pennsylvania Street in Sturgeon Bay.

The Assemblies of God Church has been apart of Door County ever since.  On June 7, 1965 the first building on Michigan Street was completed and the Gospel Tabernacle was up and running.  This body of believers began to grow so much that just 11 years later, in 1976, a new sanctuary had to be built. 

In 1983 Pastor Mark Schwarzbauer became the new Head Pastor of the Gospel Tabernacle and he is still our leader today. The church changed it's focus and it's name in 1986 to become more family oriented and a year later, in 1987, Family Worship Center completed another building project.  The Ministry Center was built to house Peninsula Christian School, classrooms, nursery facilities, as well as the church office.

In the 1990's Family Worship Center focused on bringing Christian radio to northeast Wisconsin by founding and operating multiple radio stations.  WPFF was born out of the church's mission to care for others. Family Worship Center's current vision is to bring the families of the community to a better understanding of God in their everyday lives. We seek to do this through our various evolving ministries that address people in relevant ways.
