Midweek Update: January 3, 2024

Dear Faith Community Church Family,

It is officially the fiftieth anniversary year of Faith Community Church! Praise God for his faithfulness to our congregation. He has proved himself over and over to our church and he continues to work in and through our congregation! I am excited, as I know you are, to celebrate 50 years of God’s faithfulness in 2024. The celebration will include, for example, our Outreach Anniversary Celebration on June 8, the Anniversary Celebration Dinner on September 28, and the Anniversary Celebration Service on September 29.

A core commitment of our Called to Flourish vision is kingdom prayer. This is not something we simply say we emphasize as a congregation, but something we are actively seeking to practice in our church, our families, and our individual lives. We are dedicated to praying for “the good of the community.” We are asking that God would use us to serve those in our community with every kind of need, and especially that we would have the privilege of bearing witness to the transformative message of the gospel. On Sunday, we will welcome Rev. Phil Smith who will share God’s Word with us from Revelation 8:1-5 with a sermon entitled “The Final Word on Prayer.”

This Sunday we will celebrate the Lord’s Supper together. Please take time beforehand to prepare your hearts through prayer and confession to take this covenantal meal.
