Welcome to the FCC Outreach Blog
We want to demonstrate God’s love and the good news of Jesus by using our skills, talents, and resources to make a positive impact on others locally and globally. Below, you’ll find stories that celebrate that purpose and you’ll also find stories that challenge us all to live this out in practical ways.

If you’ve been around church or have been following Jesus for a while, it’s likely come to your attention that there’s a growing number of people who’ve never been connected to a church before or directly introduced to Jesus. Not only that, but there are a lot of churches that are forever closing their doors because rather than growing and attracting new followers of Jesus, they’re slowly dwindling. And it’s sad. We want to be the answer to something better. Here at FCC, we want to help bring the hope of Jesus to people who need it. One way that we do this is through our outreach partner, Stadia.

We have made prayer over complicated and it has, for many of us, become a barrier to experiencing God in our lives. Prayer has been made into a spiritual checklist, which is something God never intended. What role does prayer play in outreach and how can we learn to pray for others who don’t know about the hope Jesus offers?
Have you ever wondered what your life purpose is? If you’ve been connected to church for a while, perhaps you’ve heard people talk about their “calling.” Maybe you’ve asked, “what does God want me to do with my life?” If you’ve ever asked “is missions for me?,” you really should be asking, “how can I live out God’s mission?”
