November 30 Midweek Update

Dear Family Community Church Family, In the book Confessing the Faith, Chad Van Dixhoorn says this: “It is one of the great wonders of the incarnation and our salvation that the all-glorious and only begotten of the Father could humble himself and become man . . . . As prophet, he is our teacher. As priest, he is our mediator and only hope. As king, he is our defender and…

Midweek Update: November 23, 2022

Happy Thanksgiving! “We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love that you have for all the saints, because of the hope laid up for you in heaven. Of this you have heard before in the word of the truth, the gospel, which has come to you, as indeed in the whole world it is…

Midweek Update: November 16

Dear Faith Community Church Family, In September, our congregation came together to explore our church’s Called to Flourish vision. During that evening, we described how we aimed to grow in Christian maturity through pursuing richer, biblical intimacy with God through prayer. Our Praying Life Sunday school class, Praying Life seminar, and Kingdom Prayer series have…

Midweek Update: November 9

Dear Brothers and Sisters, The Christian life is frequently described in the Scriptures as a battle. “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood,” the Apostle Paul says, “but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12) We cannot win this…

Midweek Update: November 2

Dear Faith Community Church Family, Do you ever feel tired and frustrated when it comes to your prayer life? Sometimes, it seems that the harder we try to pray, the more easily distracted we become when praying. Or maybe you’ve had this experience: You put together a long prayer list, fully intending to pray faithfully through the list on a daily basis, only to find that…

Midweek Update: October 26

Dear Brothers and Sisters, This past Sunday our Kingdom Prayer small groups launched. If you were not able to participate this month, it’s never too late to join! It was a delight to fellowship together and enjoy each other’s company in homes. I am especially excited to see how God will move through our prayer groups to transform us as individuals and as a church, and to…

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…

Midweek Update: October 5, 2022

Dear Brothers and Sisters, The second petition of the Lord’s Prayer is: “Your kingdom come.” The Lord’s Prayer is a kingdom prayer. When we pray the Lord’s Prayer we are praying a God-sized prayer; we are asking for something that only he can do. We are praying that the Lord would use us–his people–to advance his kingdom through spreading the good news of salvation to our…

September 28 2022 Midweek Update

Dear Brothers and Sisters, Prayer is God’s ordained means to bring Kingdom change in the world, and it is also the means he has ordained to cause Faith Community Church and our community to flourish! Jesus himself has given us a script in the Lord’s Prayer; a prayer, yes, to pray, but also a prayer to live. This Sunday our series on Kingdom Prayer begins. Sunday’s sermon…

Midweek Update: September 21

Dear Faith Community Church Family, For three weeks we are digging into Ezekiel 17:22-24, the theme passage for our three year vision Called to Flourish. The first Sunday we focused on how to become a flourishing church; this past Sunday we turned our attention to what a flourishing church looks like: its root, its fruit, its majesty, and its provision. This Sunday, we…

Midweek Update: September 14

Brothers and Sisters, This week I have been expressing thanks to our God for the way he so clearly blessed our Called to Flourish Vision Night. Thank you to everyone who served with food, sound, set up and take down, and in a number of other ways. Thank you to those of you who have already enthusiastically responded to the vision through offering to host prayer gatherings…

Midweek Update September 7, 2022

Dear Faith Community Church Family, This Sunday we will join together for Vision Night. I have been praying that the Lord would bless our time together and that it would be a time when we grow in unity and in hope as we look to the future prayerfully and expectantly. The vision night meal will be at 4:00pm in the Mission Center and afterwards, at approximately 5:00pm,…

Midweek Update: August 31

Brothers and Sisters, Do you know of any greater privilege than being able to go to our heavenly Father in prayer knowing with confidence that he will hear us? Prayer is not something we do so we can check it off the list; prayer is a way of life. This is what the Apostle Paul is getting at when he says, “Pray without ceasing.” (1 Thessalonians 5:17). We breathe in the…

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…

Midweek Update: August 17, 2022

Dear Faith Community Church Family, At our June congregational meeting I shared with you about a three year ministry vision which our church leadership has been prayerfully discussing over the course of many months. By God’s grace, we have seen growth in multiple areas in our church over these last several years. Naturally, we are eager to see our Gospel maturity continue…

Midweek Update: August 10, 2022

Dear Faith Community Church Family, On Sunday we began our new series The Acts of Creation. As I mentioned during our worship service, we spent 46 sermons on the Book of Acts drinking in the beautiful work of the Word and Spirit in the early church. We beheld the reign of Christ in action over his people in this follow-up to Luke’s Gospel. Now, in The Acts of Creation we…

Midweek Update: August 3, 2022

Dear Brothers and Sisters, This Sunday we begin The Acts of History sermon series. In this series we follow the powerful working of God from the beginning of creation to the consummation of the New Heavens and the New Earth. If we want to live faithfully and wisely in our times, we must understand our place within the great story of God’s acts in history. We get to that…

Midweek Update: July 27, 2022

Dear Faith Family, What a wondrous God we serve! We witness his glories around us and His mighty deeds in our lives. We have wrapped up our study of Acts that was entitled “You will be my Witnesses”. On our very first week of journey through Acts over a year ago, Pastor Rhett encouraged us to see Jesus as our North Star. As we brought our study to a close,…

July 20, 2022 Midweek Update

Dear Brothers and Sisters, This Friday morning I’ll be departing for Les Cayes, Haiti. I am eager to see how the Lord will use our team to further the advancement of the Gospel through us during this next week. In James 1:5, we read “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.” Please pray that the…

July 13, 2022 Midweek Update

Dear Faith Community Church Family, This Sunday we come to the conclusion of our long journey in the Book of Acts. In this week’s passage, Acts 29:11-31, you can almost hear a sigh of relief in Luke’s words when he says, “And so we came to Rome” (v. 14). Of course, much still lay ahead of them–Paul’s trial before Caesar, in particular. But they had finally arrived at…
