Midweek Update: May 20, 2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters of Faith Community Church, Listen to these words of Jesus from the Gospel of John: “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly” (John 10:10). This statement is both bold and beautiful. First, Jesus is claiming that he alone is the source of life. If we want life, we must go to him for it. Second, the life that he offers is not a bare,…

Midweek Update: May 13, 2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters, Proverbs 16:3 says, “Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.” Does this Proverb teach that if we simply hand over our plans to God we can be sure that he will put his stamp on them? What if we find our plans changing unexpectedly, whether they be financial plans, marriage plans, or college plans? What…

Midweek Update: May 6, 2020

Dear Faith Community Church Family, Not many emotions get their own color, but envy is one of them. When a person passionately desires something someone else has, we say they are green with envy. We might envy another person’s job, health, significant other, place on the basketball team, “perfect family,” or fancy house. Envy’s motto is, “I want that!” It is looking at…

Midweek Update: April 29, 2020

Dear Faith Community Church Family, Over the last couple of months, one thing that we’ve experienced is that a coronavirus pandemic provokes a wide variety of responses from people: fear, anxiety, anger, grief, but also love, mercy, and service. Times of crisis reveal our hearts. They reveal our strengths, but also our ways of thinking and acting that need to be changed…

Midweek Update: April 22, 2020

Dear Faith Community Church Family, The shortest verse in the English Bible, John 11:35, contains two words: “Jesus wept.” This sentence, as Ted Powers shared in Sunday’s sermon, answers very simply, yet directly, some of our deepest questions. Questions such as these: Does Jesus care about my life? Does he know the level of anxiety and fear I struggle with on a daily…

Midweek Update: April 15, 2020

Dear Faith Community Church Family, This week I was reminded of a powerful quote by the Dutch Christian, Abraham Kuyper: “There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is sovereign over all, does not cry ‘Mine!’” This past Sunday we celebrated the resurrection of Jesus. His resurrection is proof that indeed Jesus reigns over…

Midweek Update: April 8, 2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters, The story of Holy Week is nothing less than the climax of the Gospel story itself. Through his death and resurrection, Jesus has taken upon himself the sins of the world and has overcome the sting of death. We can rest assured that if he is Lord over sin and death, then he is certainly Lord over the Coronavirus. The death and resurrection of…

Midweek Update: April 1, 2020

Dear Faith Community Church Family, Holy week begins this Sunday, April 5. It is during this special week that we focus our attention upon the final days of Jesus’ life: his entrance into Jerusalem as the world’s only true King (Palm Sunday), his crucifixion outside of Jerusalem for the sins of the world (Good Friday), and his resurrection from the dead to reign as Savior…

Midweek Update from Pastor Rhett

Dear Faith Community Church Family, Jeremiah 14:9 says, “O LORD, you are in the midst of us, and we are called by your name.” Wherever we are, we can say confidently with the prophet Jeremiah that the Lord is with us. Furthermore, as the prophet says, God has called us by his own name. We belong to him. We are members of his redeemed family. This is the biblical antidote…

Coronavirus Update: March 19, 2020

Dear Faith Community Church Family, The prophet Habakkuk lived through a difficult time in Israel, to say the least. God’s people had split into two kingdoms, and one of those had already been conquered by a foreign nation and hauled away into exile. Those who were left, like Habakkuk, were watching anxiously as yet another nation, Babylon, grew stronger and stronger. The…

Coronavirus Update (March 14)

Dear Faith Community Church Family, Grace and peace in the name of our sovereign Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am writing to provide an update on how our church is responding to the developing circumstances surrounding the Coronavirus. This is a situation that is changing daily and so we appreciate your flexibility as we adapt as a church to the circumstances. The…

Coronavirus Update (March 12, 2020)

Dear Brothers and Sisters, Our church is taking several proactive steps to help protect our congregation against COVID-19 and mitigate the spread of the virus in our community. We believe this is an aspect of obeying Jesus’ command to love our neighbor (Mark 12:31). In view of CDC recommendations and best practices for slowing the spread of the virus, the elders have…

FCC News for January 31, 2020

This December we held a World Relief Christmas drive that benefitted refugees in our county. Just this morning I had the privilege of helping transport the donated items to the World Relief office in Carol Stream. Our…
