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…

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…

Faith Community Church News: January 17, 2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters of Faith Community Church, What is the path to wisdom? Few people would claim they don’t need wisdom in their life. The reality is, however, that wisdom does not come naturally and must be purposefully pursued if we want to be people characterized by godly wisdom. The really important questions are, “What does wisdom look like?” and “How do…

I rejoice as I see the transformation that is taking place in your lives, your families, and in our congregation. This is a testimony of God’s abundant grace and continued faithfulness among us.

Congregational News

Dear Friends, One experience we all share, whether young or old, male or female, Christian or non-Christian, is the need to have other people in our lives that we look up to, admire and emulate. This might be a mother or father, an older sibling, a teacher, or a professional athlete. Our role models have a powerful ability to shape who we think we should be and what we…

August 2, 2019 Congregational Letter

Dear Brothers and Sisters, As many of you know, summer is a time when churches undergo a lot of work behind the scenes. Planning, training, and equipping often occur over the summer in order to allow for a smoother transition into the more public and active ministry seasons. I’ve been enjoying meeting with ministry team leaders, attending trainings, and planning…

Questions for Ordination

When a new pastor is ordained and installed in the PCA, the presiding minister asks him particular questions in preparation for the installation. On Sunday evening, these questions will be put to Pastor Rhett: Do you believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, as originally given, to be the inerrant Word of God, the only infallible rule of faith and practice? Do…
