Friday UpDate - June 5, 2020

I’m excited as we look forward to this Sunday! After weeks of praying and planning, we’re taking the next step with our phased approach for regathering at the church building, while also continuing to offer online services. Whether you watch at home or are on campus on Sunday, we are one church with one mission: to help everyone meet, know and follow Jesus.

Just a reminder that we are planning for an in-person attendance of 100 people at both the 9:00 and 11:00am services. There’s still some room for this Sunday (June 7), so if you’d still like to RSVP for the in-person services, please RSVP at this link.

We’re also starting a new series on Sunday called, “David: The Rise and Fall of a King.” In life, we all experience many victories and failures. But, in the end, it isn't our talents or skills that qualify us. It is our willingness to be teachable and humble when we fall. The life of King David shows how a seemingly insignificant and flawed person can live a worthy life. People look to outward appearances, but God looks to the heart.

Brigitte Feia, FCC’s director of children’s discipleship will also be making a special announcement about Vacation Bible School before the services start on Sunday. This summer, you’ll have the opportunity to host VBS in your own backyard to help children learn that our God is faithful and will give us everything we need to walk with him. He gives us his grace, his Word, his Son, his forgiveness, and the Holy Spirit. As children learn directly from Scripture, we pray that they will be eternally impacted by God’s truths and the gospel. And, this year VBS is free to all participants! Brigitte will have more info this Sunday on how you can help lead or assist with a backyard VBS, plus information on registration for children to participate. VBS registration will open at fcchudson.com and the FaithBase app at 8:00am on Sunday, June 7.

WATCH THIS WEEK’S FCC VIDEOS

  • FAITH at Home—This past week has been difficult. This is not only a historical time for our nation, but also a critical moment where we as parents have the responsibility to lead our children. Check out this week’s video some of the ways parents can talk with your kids about what is happening in the U.S. right now. We hope the family talking points we’ve included will also be of great use to your family. This week’smessage is specifically for parents, though we would highly recommend that middle and high school students would watch, as well. Just to forewarn you, some of the video content captured in Minneapolis may be difficult to watch for sensitive viewers.
  • FAITH & Life—It’s hard to believe that something so significant could happen that it would replace COVID in the headlines, but it has. Another charged incident of racial conflict and death has grabbed our attention. What has set off the explosion in Minneapolis are the differences; what will set healing into motion are the similarities. Watch this week's FAITH & Life as Pastor Larry Szyman explains.

Could you please help us help as many people as possible by sharing these videos with a friend? Thank you!

SUPPORT FOR THE TWIN CITIES

Our hearts break over all the pain and turmoil that have taken place recently in Minneapolis and St. Paul, and we are actively looking for partners that can help us impact the needs that exist. Pastor Larry Szyman has been meeting with pastors in the Twin Cities to learn more about how we can help. There are many immediate relief needs that are being met, and we are so grateful! But there will be long term needs, as well. And so we want to help resource churches in the neighborhoods with time and financial gifts, so that the gospel works its way into building beautiful neighborhoods that to God’s glory look more and more like the kingdom of God. Here are a couple of options, and we hope to bring you more in the future:

  • Minneapolis Rebuild Relief Fund – Converge North Central
  • https://www.supportthecities.com
  • Two of our Hudson neighbors, Tyler Pelton and his wife, have seen some significant, unaddressed needs on the north side of Minneapolis where they both work. Tyler reached out to FCC, and we are happy to partner with him to be of help! From 9am-12pm (noon) on Saturday, June 6, and Sunday June 7, he will have a van in the FCC lot to receive donated goods, which he will then deliver. Items needed include:

         -masks
         -hand sanitizer
         -shampoo/ conditioner for people of color
         -bars of soap
         -laundry detergent
         -diapers
         -baby wipes
         -formula
         -feminine products
         -non-perishable food (preferably not canned goods)
         -bottled water
         -first aid supplies (bandaids for dark skin colors if available)
         -toothbrushes
         -travel size toiletries
         -new underwear, socks, white t-shirts
         -flip flops
         -backpacks

Thank you!
