Friday UpDate - Apr. 3, 2020

Hello, Faith Community! With so much happening throughout the week, we just want to keep you in the loop. Here are a few updates and reminders as you go into the weekend.

IN THIS ISSUE

  • This Sunday
  • Opportunity to coming alongside medical, Emergency MedicalServices (EMS) and law enforcement personnel
  • NEW ways to serve families through the Hudson Backpack Program

THIS SUNDAY

We have an encouraging and hope-filled service planned for you, and our worship team will be back this week with music, so you'll want to be there!

  • Join us this Sunday at 9 or 11am for online church at https://www.fcchudson.com/live or on Facebook.
  • You’ll find a digital sermon guide posted on our blog at fcchudson.com. There is also an option to download and print the sermon guide to follow along and take notes at home.
  • Personally invite a friend to an online service with a text, email or through social media, too! More than ever, people want to stay connected. Reach out to a friend and personally invite them to watch an online service and then have a follow up conversation with them, to ask them what they thought, and see how you can help them take their next step.

This Sunday we are concluding our Who DoYou Say? series. This series is all about Jesus. In Jesus’ day, those who were young or old, rich or poor, powerful or weak, had opinions about Jesus. But, who do you say Jesus is? This is the most Important question we can ask and answer.

And, remember to be praying for someone to invite to experience Easter with you at FCC Online on April 12! We have a message of great Hope for this life and the next!

SERVING OUR NEIGHBORS

Thank you for the many ways you are serving our neighbors across the St. Croix Valley! We have two new opportunities for helping in our community:

  • coming alongside medical, Emergency MedicalServices (EMS) and law enforcement personnel  
  • helping the Hudson Backpack Program in new ways.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO HELP SUPPORT THE MEDICAL, EMS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT PERSONNEL IN OUR COMMUNITY?

The church has a great opportunity to display her beauty in this season. The frontlines of this challenge are those who serve in medicine, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and law enforcement. Because they play such a significant part in our shared welfare, FCC is seeking to come alongside them in this season. Many are or will be working long and stress-filled days only to come home to children who need help with schooling. We want to avoid the need for them to go grocery shopping and other task so that they are less at risk and they may continue to serve.

We are seeking to facilitate a group of people willing to go shopping, pick up dry cleaning or whatever other tasks may be of help to them in this season. This will be offered to all who live or work in the 54016 zip code. This is how it will work.

  • FCC will communicate with health care providers, EMS and law force personnel. They will be asked to submit a request (with their contact info) through a link provided.
  • FCC will coordinate a FCC volunteer with the front-line personnel who expressed a need.
  • Volunteers will contact the front-liner, meet the need, allowing them to continue in service for the benefit of all. It will be up to the volunteer and front liner to deal with specifics, such as where to shop, how to get reimbursed for purchases (Venmo and other apps make this easy and safe), etc.

While not an expectation, it would seem ideal that one person/family could continue in a relationship with the front liner throughout this season.

Would you consider helping those who are helping us all? Here is how to move forward. Click on this link, fill out the form that asks for your contact info and in the box provided, share how you are willing to serve. When a need it seems you can meet arises, Chris Naujok from FCC will contact you to see if you are willing to take it on and then you will take it from there.

Thank you for your consideration as we seek to renew the valley. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact Pastor for Missional Life Larry Szyman, at lszyman@fcchudson.com or 715-760-0984.
