One of the ways we live out our vision to see renewed neighborhoods, is through support of the Hudson Backpack Program. Thank you, FCC, for your generosity in the way you are helping families in our community!
As part of the Hudson Backpack Program, FCC provides food and prepares backpacks for families in need at our partnering schools, Willow River Elementary and EP Rock Elementary. Many of the families have difficulty providing food for weekend meals. Backpacks filled with breakfast, lunch, and dinner items are sent home on Thursdays twice a month to assist feeding families over weekends.
Another part of the vision at Faith Community Church is to see Christ empowering global missional leaders. One way we live that out is by partnering with a network of churches in the St. Croix Valley called The St. Croix Valley LEAD Team to extend our disciple-making convictions locally and globally.
The LEAD Team churches, which include The Bridge in Somerset, Faith Community Church in New Richmond, The Village in Baldwin, The River in River Falls and Torrent in Prescott will gather on Sunday, June 24 at 4 p.m. at Lakefront Park in Hudson. The event is called Vision for the Valley 2018, and you’re invited! We will celebrate what has transpired through our shared mission in recent years, cast vision for what the future could hold and share a meal. Stay tuned for more details, including a magazine coming out in May.
