Dear Brothers and Sisters,
This past year we’ve endeavored to host a quarterly Community Lunch, which provides us with the opportunity to show hospitality to our friends, co-workers, and neighbors. My prayer is that our Community Lunches will be high points of the year for your friends and family; that they would come to experience the Gospel not only through hearing it but also through experiencing the warm fellowship that is a hallmark of Faith Community Church. This Sunday is our next Community Lunch. I encourage you to invite at least one person to join us for lunch at 11:00am, or of course for worship and lunch together.
This Sunday, our sermon text will be Acts 24:1-27.
The link for the livestream of Sunday’s worship is here.
A few more things to keep in mind:
Congregational Meeting (Sunday, June 12)
Mark your calendar for Sunday, June 12, when we will hold our congregational meeting following the worship service. During this time we will pray together and review the budget for the 2023 fiscal year. All church members are encouraged to attend.
Men’s Ministry Outing
The men’s ministry is looking forward to caravanning together to visit Volo car museum in June. We are asking men to let us know which date is preferable: June 11 or June 18. Please see the sheet in the narthex to indicate which time is best for you or contact the church office.

We are continuing to collect items for our local West Chicago food pantry.
