This Sunday, we’ll see what David does when he’s presented with the opportunity to destroy an enemy and see what he has to teach us about the power of anger, the thirst for justice and what happens when these turn to revenge.

We invite you to gather with us at the church building this Sunday morning, June 28, without the need to RSVP. After a few weeks of limiting our in-person services to  100 people each, we believe we are able to have more people in our services, while still practicing physical distancing. (If our in-person attendance increases substantially, we may need to reconsider the RSVP process.). Thank you  again  for your patience and flexibility as we’ve been learning these past few weeks through our first phase in regathering at the building.

Just a reminder that for our in-person gatherings we intend to follow, in spirit, the COVID guidelines provided by St. Croix County and the CDC. Please see the guidelines on the FCC blog.  

Whether you watch at home or are on campus on Sunday, 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.  

Watch or listen to sermons in the “David, The Rise and Fall of a King” series at or on the FaithBase app.

Pastor Tim Porter was quoted in an article in this month’s “Point” magazine published by Converge. The article shares how Converge churches quickly moved to online services, as limits were placed on large gatherings earlier this year to help limit the spread of COVID-19. Faith Community Church partners with Converge, which is a network of nearly 1300 churches throughout the United States. Converge seeks to help start and strengthen churches nationally and globally. You can access this month’s online “Point” magazine at this link.
