October 19 Midweek Update

October 19 Midweek Update

Dear Faith Community Church Family,

Over the past two weeks we’ve looked at the second and third petitions of the Lord’s Prayer: “Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” I hope you have been reminded (as I have) of how great a gift prayer truly is–we have the privilege of going to our heavenly Father for our every need!

This Sunday, from 4:00-5:00pm, we have the opportunity to come together and seek the Lord with one another in our Kingdom Prayer small groups. 

We have four host homes (addresses in your email)

Dennis and Audrey Dobbs

Dan and Katie Wetherington

Ben and Jackie Huggins

Isaac and Erin Evans

Take advantage of this opportunity to pray kingdom prayers with your brothers and sisters in Christ. If you haven’t already, I encourage you to sign up for one of the Kingdom Prayer small groups, either by contacting the church office or by signing the sheet in the narthex. 

On Sunday, Don Johnson will be sharing God’s Word with us from Ecclesiastes 12:8-14, with a sermon entitled “The End of the Matter.”
