Hi, Faith Community! You’ll find the latest on FCC news and events in today’s newsletter.
On Sunday, Pastor Tim Prince will be teaching from Philippians 4:4-9 on “The Presence of Peace.” When the apostle Paul writes about peace in the midst of anxiety, we should pay attention. Paul was not an armchair theologian. He wasn’t writing from the comfort of an ivory tower. He was in prison awaiting a life or death sentence. So when Paul writes about “peace that passes all understanding,” we should sit up and take notice. What was his secret? It’s no secret at all, but a relationship with the living God. “The Lord is near…” (Phil. 4:5).”
You can listen to sermons in the “Eclipse” series here.

Lamentations 3:21-23 (Hope/Trust)
21But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: 22The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; 23they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
FCC’s Marriage Enrichment Weekend is designed to deepen and enrich the joys you share together in a Christ-centered marriage. The weekend is for all marriages, whether you are new to marriage or well-seasoned. Couples come for a variety of reasons, from setting aside time away to focus on their relationship, to setting goals for the next year, to reconnecting with other couples. The weekends are planned around a mixture of solid biblical teaching, social interaction, time alone as a couple and good meals. This year's theme is “Glorifying God Through Your Marriage” with Pastor Tim Haugen as the featured speaker. Find more information and register today at fcchudson.com or the FaithBase app.
