Dear Faith Community Church Family,
Thank you for your prayers for our family’s safety as we traveled. We enjoyed our time with my parents and siblings and were refreshed as we had the opportunity to take in the beautiful views of the gulf coast. I am looking forward to worshipping with you this Lord’s Day. On Sunday, we will turn our attention to Hebrews 10:1-18, where we hear about the once for all sacrifice of Jesus and his subsequent reign at the right hand of the Father. Jesus, our perfect sacrifice, has become our all-powerful King!
Please prepare your hearts to join together for communion this Sunday by taking time beforehand for mediation, confession, and personal prayer.
