THIS SUNDAY

On Sunday, we’ll continue on in our study of James’ letter and learn Rule #11 for living an inspired life: Pray. (It makes a difference.)

We will also be celebrating communion in the services on Sunday. Communion is very important for remembering Jesus' death, resurrection, and return and also for our unity together as a church.  If you will be watching online, please make plans to have grape juice with bread or crackers available to celebrate communion at home with your family. 

  • Find the conversation guide for the Rule #10: Always Be Honest and Speak the Truth (Mar. 14) 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.
  • Watch or listen to sermons in the “The Way: 12 Rules To Live By For An Inspired Life” series at  fcchudson.com or on the app.

Childcare will not be available for the communion service.

THIS WEEK’S BIBLE MEMORY VERSE

Philippians 4:6-7 (Anxiety)

6 … do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
