Chuck Foreman – Teaching / Missions Pastor 

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!

Message Monday 3/9/20 – Like Jesus: 4 Chair Discipling

Chuck Foreman – Teaching / Missions Pastor 

Ultimately, following Jesus, being his disciple, is about learning to live like he lived, love like he loved and do what he did.

“Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.” (1 John 2:6)

What did Jesus say? What did Jesus do? How did he do it? This is our quest—to be Like Jesus.

Message Monday 3/2/20 – Like Jesus: New Blood In The Church Pt. 3

Chuck Foreman – Teaching / Missions Pastor 

God wants outsiders to become insiders—members of His Family. We, who are already part of the Fam, can either open the door for people on the outside or slam it shut in their faces.

Our story with God must become our story with each other.  As God has accepted us, so we must accept each other.

This was the challenger facing our Christian ancestors as the first believers, all Jews, grappled with the new influx of non-Jewish believers in Jesus, who did not have the same background and upbringing in the Law of Moses. (more…)
