Dear Faith Community Church Family,
Our final sermon in our “Called to Community” series is this Sunday, when we will explore our call to a common mission (Matt 28:16-20). Christians are not just saved from sin, we are also saved to a life of purpose in joining with God in his intentions to bring all things under the lordship of Christ. As a church, we are exercising our call to a common mission in several ways. One of those ways is through joining others in our presbytery for a trip to Haiti this summer. If you are interested in participating, we strongly encourage you to consider attending (our joining us via livestream) our informational meeting this Sunday at 4 pm in the Worship Center.
This Sunday: Livestream is available for both 8:30am and 9:45am Services. Click here to join us.
