I sure miss seeing all of you weekly! I cannot wait to get back together again soon! Just like I am missing you, I am also so grateful for you! We are hearing reports of great missional community meetings through Zoom. Middle School, High School, and AWANA leaders are reaching out and connecting. Small group discipleship is going strong. Neighbors are being served in new ways. The vulnerable are being loved and cared for. More people are worshiping with us online. And much more.
This time is such a good reminder, that as much as the worship gathering is so important, the church is much more than a building. The church is a movement of people led by the Spirit, seeking to love God and love neighbor! You are a part of that movement. I am so grateful to be one of your pastors! Thank you for being on mission!
This Sunday we will celebrate the event that has changed world history forever. Jesus is alive. Jesus is hope. Because of Jesus’ resurrection, we have the forgiveness of past sins, power for today, and hope for tomorrow. In a time when our hopes are being challenged, it is a gift that we get to celebrate an empty tomb together. I can’t wait to join with you online this Sunday!
Watch or listen to sermons in the “Who Do You Say?” series at fcchudson.com or the FaithBase app. You’ll also find a copy of the sermon guide with the sermon audio and video.

For many years, we have gathered as a church for a communion service on the Thursday before Easter. We plan to continue that rhythm this year through an online communion service tomorrow evening, April 9, at 7:00pm. We will meet at fcchudson.com/live at 7:00pm for a time of singing, communion and prayer. Pastor Larry Szyman will be leading the service with Mark Meyer, one of our worship leaders.
Here's what I recommend in preparation for the communion service...
We so wish we could do this in person, but we look forward to remembering Jesus together online.
Thank you for the many ways you are serving our neighbors across the St. Croix Valley! We’ve put together some resources in the “Serving Our Neighbors” post on the FCC blog to help you reach out to your friends and neighbors, including:
Eph. 4:29 (Godly speech)
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.
Although we’re all experiencing a lot of change right now, our mission stays the same: to help everyone meet, know and follow Jesus. We have an opportunity to reach thousands through our new online services and resources. Your faithful giving helps support our shared mission. Thank you for your generosity!
Missional Communities are a great place to have people speak truth into our lives. They are the core element of Faith Community’s discipleship, and we'd love to help you get connected with a Missional Community. Missional Communities are continuing to meet virtually through online meetings.
