Good morning, Faith Community! Today’s UpDate includes information on this Sunday’s sermon and important FCC news and events. Pastor Tim Porter will be back with a gospel reminder and other updates next week.
This Sunday, Pastor Steve Holsteen will be preaching from Philippians 3:7-17 about APPRENTICESHIP—the fourth step of discipleship in the AS WE GO teaching series. In this passage, the Apostle Paul calls us to “imitate” him as he seeks to “count all things as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus.” So please come and learn how walking the discipleship path alongside a mentor, who has more experience following in Jesus’ footsteps, can help as we “press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ!”

Baptism is an act commanded by the Lord Jesus Christ as an expression of faith and a symbol of our union with Christ, especially in his death and resurrection. We are planning for baptisms in the services on Sunday, November 25. Pick up a “Believer’s Baptism” brochure at the Info Center for more info or contact Becki at firstname.lastname@example.org or 715.386.4070 by noon on Monday, November 19, if you are interested in being baptized.
Part of the vision of Faith Community is to empower global missional leaders. One way we live that out is through partnership with SERVE India, which supports the expanding missionary effort in India, specifically in Andhra Pradesh, a state in South East India. You can stop by their booth in the lobby on Sunday to learn more about SERVE India. There will also be Kwik Trip cards available to purchase in support of SERVE India.
On Sunday, Oct. 28, Pastor Tim Prince taught on the discipleship principle, ALIGN (Psalm 19) about the role the Bible has in the life of followers of Jesus. You can watch or listen to the sermon here. The Bible is sufficient to teach us everything God thinks we need to know about him and life, so that we can live for him, glorify him, be acceptable to him, and experience joy in this life as we wait to see Jesus face-to-face.
