Dear Faith Community Church Family,
As Pastor Don Johnson shared with us this past week from Psalm 85, we may weep over what is lost but we also can find joy, hope, restoration, and healing in the future God has for us. It starts with the birth of the reformation of our heart as we commit to one another, we resolve to delight in God, and the assurance of God’s unfailing love. We can experience and sustain revival of the hearts of God’s people with ears to listen, feet that follow, and hearts that fear God. This is a wonderful lesson on our “Called to Flourish” journey.
Pastor Ted Powers will bring us the message from God’s word this Sunday as Pastor Rhett continues to recover. In our commitment to one another, let us gather in person to delight in God through worship. If you are unable to come in person, please join us online by clicking on the following link to access the livestream of Sunday’s worship service (9:30am): https://youtube.com/live/qdwZTesd2wc
