FCC Mid-Week Update – “New Normal” – 4/1/20

Chuck Foreman – Teaching / Missions Pastor 

I believe that the Church in America is realizing a New Normal now that is probably going to last for several months, at least. We need to learn a new paradigm of what it means to be the Church and live out our faith. I want to share some things stirring in me.
 
Watch the video for our mid-week update from Chuck Foreman.

3/29/20 Message – Like Jesus: 4 Chair Discipling – The Method

Chuck Foreman – Teaching / Missions Pastor 

For Jesus to take us from seekers all the way to being mature, fruit bearing disciple-makers, he must lead us through many trials along the way. But remember his promise, “Surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20)

Find joy and peace in Jesus this week. Follow us on Spotify or listen below today when you tune into this Chuck’s sermon. (Psalm 19)

The success and rapid growth of the Church in most of the world is due to the freedom, mobility and protection provided by meeting in small groups. Church Building—based, large group, free practice of Christianity is illegal in communist and Islamic countries. Although that’s not the case in America, we are getting a taste of what that’s like now because of the Corona Virus challenge. Good News: We are still the Church even without our large group gatherings in our buildings! Here are some things you can do.

Hello FCC! 

What if our experience of “church” as we know it in America completely changed?  If we became like the Persecuted Church, in most of our world, and could no longer meet in large group gatherings for worship in our buildings, what would we do? I’ll tell you what we would do—exactly what we are doing under this present health crisis!   (more…)

Message Monday 3/16/20 – Like Jesus: 4 Chair Discipling – The Humanity Of Jesus

Jerome Parker – Community Pastor

Understanding that Jesus is fully God and fully man is fundamental to the success of the life of the believer.  The great commission tells us to go and make disciples of all people groups. The disciples that we are instructed to make should be an emulation of the process by which Jesus made disciples.  If we as Jesus followers fail to embrace the humanity of who Jesus was, then our efforts to make disciples will ultimately be short circuited.  While Jesus was indeed God wrapped in flesh, he still relied on the instruction of God the father, the guidance of God Holy Spirit, a lifestyle in prayer and studying of scripture and intentional time in community.  These are the same things that we must rely on if we are to fulfill John 14:12!
