THIS SUNDAY

We are closing out our series on the Holy Spirit this Sunday. There is always some mystery in a relationship with God’s Spirit, but this Sunday we’re striving to be practical about how the Spirit comes to us and leads us.

Watch or listen to sermons in the “I Know a Ghost” series at fcchudson.com or the FaithBase app.

Listen to this week’s worship music playlist on Spotify. Check it out here. (You’ll need to sign up for a free Spotify account to listen, if you don’t already have one.)

THIS WEEK’S BIBLE MEMORY VERSE

Proverbs 3:5-7 (Wisdom)
5Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. 6In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. 7Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.

HYMN SING | MY SAVIOR'S LOVE

Sunday, Mar. 29, 3:00-4:15pm
Come join us as we sing hymns together with a focus on Jesus Christ. Invite your friends and neighbors, too!

SOME SEASONAL TIPS FOR MINISTRY

The coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, continues to be a part of news headlines. The uncertainty of this outbreak is creating anxiety in our workplaces, schools, and day-to-day activities. Yet we remain certain of God’s steadfast presence and careful attention to all that is happening. Please join us in praying for those who are affected by this illness, as well as their caregivers and those who are working to minimize the impact of this virus.

In Psalm 46, we are reminded that it is God who is our refuge and strength, and our ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, let us not fear, but with confidence use this opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus through our prayers and our care for others.

We do want to share some information that we hope can be helpful to you and your area of ministry. Recognizing that some cases of COVID-19 have been identified in the region and that we are also in the middle of the cold and flu season, to prevent transmission of illness, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services recommends the following actions: wash your hands, cover your coughs and sneezes, and if you are sick, stay at home.

The focus of FCC’s facility stewardship is on hospitality and the ways people experience our building. As a general practice, our facility is cleaned on a daily basis to ensure we offer a welcoming and inviting environment. In addition, we offer hand sanitizer stations throughout the building for your convenience. We are also encouraging people to greet each other verbally, rather than a handshake during a time of welcome in our group gatherings. Please consider how these practices may extend into your ministry gatherings.

Although we don’t anticipate any cancellations or changes to our schedule, we are monitoring developments closely. Should the situation change, we will follow our normal procedure for communication. You may check fcchudson.com, the FaithBase app, Facebook or Twitter for updates. If you have questions, please feel free to send an email to faithcommunity@fcchudson.com.

HAVE YOU CONNECTED WITH A MISSIONAL COMMUNITY?

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:

  • They are a place to belong, grow in becoming more like Jesus and serve.
  • They offer care and support to one another through life’s celebrations and times of need, too.
  • Within Missional Communities, smaller discipleship groups offer a place to be mentored, while studying God’s word and learning to apply it to all of life.

Watch the video at this link to learn more. Stop by the Connection Center on Sunday to get connected with a Missional Community or visit fcchudson.com or the Faith Base app.
