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…

Midweek Update: July 6, 2022

Dear Brothers and Sisters, Much has happened since we were last together! I am thankful for the PCA General Assembly and for the extended time with family over the past few weeks. I’m also very grateful for our elders, and for Ted and Doug’s faithful preaching of Scripture in my absence. I hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July, celebrating the freedom we…

Midweek Update: June 15, 2022

Dear Brothers and Sisters, One important truth we learn in Acts 27 is that God’s protection of us does not always mean “smooth sailing” for us. This chapter tells the story of Paul’s wild, months-long voyage across the Mediterranean Sea to be tried by Caesar in Rome. It is a voyage that includes hurricane force winds, which leads eventually to the crew being shipwrecked…

June 8, 2022 Midweek Update

Dear Faith Community Church Family, As Christians we believe that because the Bible is God’s Word, it is our ultimate standard of truth and completely trustworthy to guide us and to give us solutions to life’s problems. Christians, however, can easily go wrong when we go to the Bible for solutions to our problems without ever allowing the Bible to define what the problem…

June 1 2022 Midweek Update

Dear Brothers and Sisters, This Sunday we have the opportunity to welcome Rev. Scott Polender to our pulpit. Scott is a friend and a faithful servant of Christ. For the last several years Scott has served as the Director of Communications and Outreach with Caring Network, a long-time ministry partner of our church. On Sunday, Scott will share the Word of God from Micah…

Midweek Update May 25, 2022

Dear Brothers and Sisters, It was a joy to welcome our guests to the community lunch this past Sunday. Thank you to everyone who participated in the logistics of hosting the event, from designing invitations to preparing the various components of our meal. This was the third Community Lunch we have hosted this ministry year and each time the number of guests has continued…

May 18, 2022 Midweek Update

Dear Brothers and Sisters, This past year we’ve endeavored to host a quarterly Community Lunch, which provides us with the opportunity to show hospitality to our friends, co-workers, and neighbors. My prayer is that our Community Lunches will be high points of the year for your friends and family; that they would come to experience the Gospel not only through…

May 11, 2022 Midweek Update

Dear Brothers and Sisters, God’s timing is always perfect. The last verse of Sunday’s sermon described how the risen Lord appeared to Paul in order to encourage him after such a difficult struggle in Jerusalem: “The following night the Lord stood by him and said, ‘Take courage, for as you have testified to the facts about me in Jerusalem, so you must testify also in…

May 4 Midweek Update

Dear Faith Community Church Family, It was a rough day for the Apostle Paul. After a riot at the temple in Jerusalem, the Roman commander brings the Apostle before the Sanhedrin to “get the facts straight.” The Sanhedrin was the highest Jewish court in Israel. Paul can barely get one sentence out of his month before things once again get ugly. In fact, Luke says that the…

Midweek Update April 20, 2022

Dear Faith Community Church Family, He is risen! It was a joy to hear many of you speaking these words to one another in our church hallways on Sunday morning. What a privilege it was to gather for both our Good Friday and Easter Sunday services to worship our Lord together. I want to say a special thank you to everyone who served in various ways at our Good Friday…

Midweek Update: April 13

Dear Brothers and Sisters, The opening words of Psalm 22 are probably familiar: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Even if you didn’t know that they are the words of David from Psalm 22, you might recognize them as the words spoken by Jesus as he hung upon the cross. Jesus speaks these words in utter pain shortly before his last breath. In the opening verses of…

Midweek Update: April 6, 2022

Dear Brothers and Sisters, When Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a colt the week of his arrest and crucifixion the crowds gathered to celebrate the entrance of the King. The religious leaders, however, urged Jesus to silence the people. Jesus’ response to the Pharisees is a clear message of his kingship over all creation: “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones…
