What a beautiful start to November! I hope you get a chance to soak up some sun this week, as we pray for our next President and await the election results!
We will close out our walk through 1 Thessalonians this Sunday learning from God’s word about the importance of being together with strong relationship. We are in a spiritual battle and God has given us to each other to help us overcome evil with good!
We will be celebrating communion together in person and online this Sunday. Communion is very important for remembering Jesus’ death, resurrection, and return and also for our unity together as a church. If you’ll be watching the service online, please plan to have grape juice with bread or crackers available to celebrate communion at home with your family, too.
Thank you so much for the ways you have adapted during this time! It’s not been easy to be on mission during this pandemic, and I am so proud of how you’ve responded. Thank you for being welcoming and encouraging one another, while also wearing masks and distancing when in the building. This isn’t easy, but God is working in all of this!
Whether you watch at home or are on campus on Sundays, 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.
Hebrews 12:1-2 (Repentance)
1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
The next child dedications will take place on Sunday, November 22, during the 9:00am and 11:00am services. Learn more and get registered at fcchudson.com or the FaithBase app.
Watch a short video to learn about Heart for the Valley.
Through Heart for the Valley, middle school and high school students from Faith Community Church serve the surrounding community by packing a Christmas meal for families, as well as giving extra food to stock their cupboards! Last year, because of the generosity of FCC, students distributed meals to more than 156 families in the Hudson area! We had over 175 middle school, high school and adult volunteers to make this event a success.
This year, students from FCC will pack meals for families to pick up on Saturday, December 19, from 9:00-11:00am. Working alongside the Hudson Backpack Program and County Market, the goal is to serve more than 150 families in our neighborhoods.
Want to help support Heart For the Valley? Each $60 tax-deductible donation allows students from FCC to pack two full boxes of food to each family, including a Christmas meal with extra food for their cupboards. Please consider donating any amount to help feed families in our neighborhoods! Learn more and make a donation at fcchudson.com or the FaithBase app. Thank you!
