Happy Wednesday, FCC!

Thank you, FCC! Thank you for how you all responded to our new approach to in-person worship. We’ve been praying for unity in our church with this next step and encouraging everyone toward unity—and on Sunday, we took a big, united step together. Thank you! God be praised! Let’s keep at it, and let’s keep praying! May God continue to be honored through us as we walk through this together!  


  • This Sunday
  • Baptisms planned for Sunday, May 2
  • Connect and serve
  • This week’s Bible memory verse


This Sunday, we take a next step in the "Is Christ Divided?" series on 1 Corinthians. A key component to being united as a church is for each of us to embrace our weaknesses.

Also, Pastor Tim Prince recommended a book last week that is helpful in providing a framework for working out the gospel implications for justice. If you’d like to dig deeper, you can order it here.

An important step in following Jesus is baptism. In consultation with local health workers, we want to offer you an opportunity to take a next step to be baptized. If you have said yes to following Jesus, but haven’t been baptized yet, we invite you to sign up to be baptized. 

If you are hesitant because of COVID-19 concerns to join us on campus for your baptism, we would love to assist you in celebrating your relationship with Jesus in a setting more helpful to you. Whether you'd like to be baptized during an in-person service on Sunday, May, or in a different setting, please sign up at  or on the app, and Pastor Larry Szyman will follow up with you.


As we continue to join together in person, we have some great opportunities to connect and serve:

In our Early Childhood ministry, we have some openings for childcare providers. If you’d like to start making an impact for Jesus on the next generation, there’s a spot for you! Contact Karen Garden, who leads our Early Childhood Ministry, at 715.220.2507.

Also, our hospitality team is a great first place to connect and serve—all you need is a smile, a willing heart, and a desire to help everyone feel welcome, noticed and loved. We’d love to have you join the team as a greeter or an usher! Please contact Pastor Larry Szyman at!
