Hello, Faith Community!

Pastor Tim Porter is away from the office today. Just a reminder that we will be celebrating communion together in person and online this Sunday. Communion is very important for remembering Jesus’ death, resurrection, and return and also for our unity together as a church. If you’ll be watching the service online, please plan to have grape juice with bread or crackers available to celebrate communion at home with your family, too.

We will also close out our walk through 1 Thessalonians this Sunday learning from God’s word about the importance of being together with strong relationship.  We are in a spiritual battle and God has given us to each other to help us overcome evil with good!

Watch a short video to learn about Heart for the Valley.

Through Heart for the Valley, middle school and high school students from Faith Community Church serve the surrounding community by packing a Christmas meal for families, as well as giving extra food to stock their cupboards! Last year, because of the generosity of FCC, students distributed meals to more than 156 families in the Hudson area! We had over 175 middle school, high school and adult volunteers to make this event a success.

This year, students from FCC will pack meals for families to pick up on Saturday, December 19, from 9:00-11:00am. Working alongside the Hudson Backpack Program and County Market, the goal is to serve more than 150 families in our neighborhoods.

Want to help support Heart For the Valley? Each $60 tax-deductible donation allows students from FCC to pack two full boxes of food to each family, including a Christmas meal with extra food for their cupboards. Please consider donating any amount to help feed families in our neighborhoods! Learn more and make a donation at or the FaithBase app. Thank you!
