Getting to know each other

We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at The Fort Church a great one!


The Fort Church meets every weekend and offers identical services to choose from across two locations:

  • The Fort Church at Mount Zion: Sundays at 9:30am
  • The Fort Church at Eastern Heights: Sundays at 11:30am


The Fort Church has two locations across Columbus, GA. Find each location address by clicking here.

What can I expect?

How long is a Fort CHURCH service?

In total, a Fort Church service is about 60 minutes in length. Services begin with The Fort Church band leading the church in music - song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of service is complete, one of our pastors will come out to share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus.

What's the culture like at the fort?

Sunday's at The Fort are exciting, casual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.

What about my kids?

We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and Fort Kidz, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our Fort Kidz program the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get signed in for the Fort Kidz experience. Fort Kidz is offered at every Fort Church service for kids ages infant through Grade 6.
