Happy Snowy Wednesday, FCC! Just when we thought 2020 couldn’t be any stranger, we got a record amount of snow! Well, as a friend of mine says, let’s choose joy and see in the early snow a great reminder of God’s kindness and faithfulness. God tells us that though are sins are red like scarlet, he will wash us whiter than snow (Isa 1.18). What a gift, we are able to wake up today to a great reminder—that in relationship with Jesus, our sins are removed from us, and we are forgiven and clean!

THIS SUNDAY  

God made us for a relationship with him and for one another. God cares deeply about our relationships. He wants our relationships to be strong. He wants to grow us and strengthen us so that everyone we encounter would experience love from us—love that is pure, love that is a glimpse of God’s heart. This week God will inspire us to better relationships.

BIBLES FOR 2ND GRADERS AND TWO-YEAR-OLDS – THIS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 25


Each fall, Faith Community Church gives Bibles to all two-year-olds and second graders because the Bible tells the powerful and unique story of Jesus. This year, the children will receive their Bibles on Sunday, Oct. 25. Parents of two-year-olds may pick up a Bible in the two-year-old nursery and second graders may pick up their Bibles in the Community Room before, during or after the 9am or 11am FaithKids LifeShaping.  If your two-year-old or second grader will not be at FCC that day, please make special arrangements to pick up a Bible. 

  • For a Bible for a two-year-old, contact Karen Garden, Director of Early Childhood, at 715-220-2507.
  • For a Bible for a second grader, contact Brigitte Feia, Director of Children's Discipleship at  bfeia@fcchudson.com.

HELPING OUR NEIGHBORS THROUGH HEART FOR THE VALLEY  

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.

OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE

Loving child care workers are needed for the 9am service on Sunday mornings in the nurseries and preschool rooms, which serve families with children (newborn through age 5) throughout the year. Consider helping one time, once a month, or more. If this is an area in which God has gifted you, please contact Karen Garden at 715.220.2507.

THIS WEEK’S BIBLE MEMORY VERSE 

Romans 12:17-19 (Godly Living)
17 Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. 18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. 19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”

WORTH REPEATING

CHILD DEDICATIONS – SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 22

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.
