TheUpDate Weekly Newsletter - December 19, 2018

Happy Wednesday, FCC! Christmas is almost here! If you’re anything like me, you’re busy being focused on getting things ready for the big day. If so, I want you to know FCC’s leadership is busy getting ready for our Christmas services this Sunday and Monday. It’s going to be a great time together. We’ll be focused on the meaning of Christmas and the wonder of Jesus who is full of grace and truth.

If you know someone, who needs to hear about God’s grace, I encourage you to invite them to join you this Sunday or Monday. This is a service you won’t want to miss. Our Christmas services are Sunday, Dec. 23, at 9 and 11 am and Monday, Dec. 24, at 4 and 8 pm.


Our covenant members affirmed the 2019 budget last Sunday, Dec. 16. Thank you for your generosity in 2018 and your continued commitment to generosity in 2019. Thank you for financially helping us to do everything we can to help everyone meet,know, and follow Jesus!

Also, please be in prayer for the Refuge today, as middle and high schoolers pack and deliver Christmas dinners and food for the school break to 100+ families in Hudson. Part of our vision is to see Jesus renewing neighborhoods in the St. Croix Valley, and the Refuge is investing in the renewal with their time and energy.

As we near the end of the year, would you consider extending your generosity through a year-end contribution? The financial gifts that we receive at the end of the year make a huge impact on the church’s ability to support our annual budget. They also enable the kind of one-time investments that cannot be funded on the basis of regular, weekly and monthly giving.
