Happy August, FCC! I’ve been reminded this week of the personal, vigilant care of our Father in heaven. Jesus taught that God’s care for us is so vigilant and personal, that every hair on our heads is numbered. Because of that kind of care, Jesus says, "Fear not!" (Luke 12.7). May your heart rest in our Father’s care for you today and into eternity!
This Sunday, we are starting a new series called All for One! In Luke 15, Jesus shares God’s heart for the lost through three parables about lost sheep, lost coins and lost children. We’re praying that God would deepen us in his love for us, and his love for the lost.
Find the conversation guide for the “Resent” sermon (July 26) at fcchudson.com or on the app. This is a great tool for those wishing to take a more personal, deeper dive into the content of each sermon on your own, as a family, or in discipleship groups and Missional Communities. And, we welcome your feedback!

Whether you watch at home or are on campus on Sundays, you matter to us and you matter to God, and we are one church with one mission: to help everyone meet, know and follow Jesus.
This summer, FCC’s Backyard VBS took place with about 150 people in 13 sites across the St. Croix Valley. Thank you to everyone who participated to help children meet, know and follow Jesus! Thank you for inviting your friends and neighbors to be a part of VBS, too. And, thank you to Jon Keller for sharing a video that he compiled with highlights of the week’s activities. You can watch the video on YouTube.
We're excited to introduce a new podcast tomorrow! Watch this short video to get a look behind the scenes, then check out the new podcast on FCC's YouTube channel tomorrow. Thank you to everyone who has subscribed to the FCC Channel! It's easy to subscribe so you can get the latest FCC videos, too!
As our next phase of regathering, we are excited to begin celebrating communion together in person and online on Sunday, Aug. 23. Communion is very important for remembering Jesus' death, resurrection, and return and also for our unity together as a church.
Our mission to help everyone meet, know and follow Jesus continues in the middle of a pandemic. 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, please sign up at fcchudson.com.
THIS WEEK’S BIBLE MEMORY VERSE
Hebrews 3:12-13 (Church Life)
12 Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God. 13 But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.
