Sometime we grow up hearing about God and what He's like from a variety of different (and often competing) sources. We're excited to dive into scripture, taking a closer look at who God says He is and what that means for us as His followers!
This series focuses on God’s truth and our worldview. As a church family, we are going to tackle some controversial issues...but we are also going to speak to the truth of faith lived in a changing world. We will find common ground; we will see God’s Word applied to our current situations. We're excited for the ways God will shape us during this series, teaching us to be bold to confess our faith and show love for our neighbors!
The Red Letter Challenge (RLC) is a resource that is simple to understand, challenging in concept, highly practical, but always squarely aimed at Jesus! God has been gracious to all, and being compelled by that grace, we believe that following Jesus is the single greatest opportunity of our lifetime! Together, we’ll be focusing on the actual words and challenges of Jesus in the Bible. Together, we’ll be reflecting, praying, wrestling, and journaling. We’ll be stretched and inspired. And in the end, our lives will look a whole lot more like Jesus. Join the whole church family at FOC on this exciting journey!
Each mid-week service in the series focuses on "Words of Life from the Cross." The theme of this series is based on the final words of Christ that He spoke from the cross as He offered up His life for the life of the world. Each of the seven words our Lord spoke from the cross imparts a blessing and is a word of Gospel. Each word of Christ proclaims and delivers something about Him, something about us, and delivers His saving death to us that we would trust Him for forgiveness, life, and salvation. This centers us on the incredible message that transforms our life and faith!
During this series, we will take a closer look at the book of Matthew. God often works in ways that we don’t always quite understand. Together we'll examine some parables from Matthew that are more difficult to comprehend and discuss what they mean for our relationship with God.
