Midweek Update: August 24

Dear Faith Community Church Family,

This Sunday we conclude our Acts of History sermon series. Last Sunday we focused on Jesus, our great Prophet, Priest, and King. This Sunday we turn our attention to the consummation of the Kingdom. The story is not yet finished! We live in the “already and not yet.” When Jesus was on earth he preached that the Kingdom of God has arrived in his coming; yet, one day, when he returns again with power and glory, the Kingdom of God will be established in its fullness. We yearn for that day and we live for that day. The question for us is, “How do we as Christians and as a church live faithfully in the already and not yet as we look forward to the coming of Jesus?” We will focus on addressing this question in this Sunday’s sermon.

Roofing Installation

As you may have noticed, over the last few years we have had some considerable water damage to various parts of the ceiling and walls on the interior of the church. In order to preserve and care for our facility, we will soon be having a new roof installed. Our current roof, with the exception of the south side of the building, is more than twenty years old. The roofing crew will begin next Monday, August 29. Please note that Bible studies and church usage can proceed as usual. If you have any questions, feel free to contact one of the elders.  

Vision Night: Sunday, September 11

Sunday, September 11 is our vision night, which will begin with a meal and culminate in a vision service. The meal will begin at 4:00pm and the service will begin at approximately 5:00pm. We encourage you to invite family and friends to join us for both portions of the evening. Though an RSVP is not required, if possible, please contact the church office to let us know if you will be attending and how many guests will be joining you.

Prayer Requests

Sharon Vaughn: Please pray for a successful surgery and a smooth recovery for Sharon as she undergoes back surgery tomorrow.

Karla and Gary Van Der Molen: Please pray for strength and encouragement for Karla as she manages her ALS.

In Him,

Pastor Rhett
