COVID-19 Updates

RELEVANT RESOURCES DURING COVID-19
WORSHIP AT HOME | SUNDAY, MAY 31 | 9:30

INFORMATION
As many of you are aware, both global and local communities are being impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The landscape has been changing rapidly and our staff and Elders have worked diligently to stay on top of the various medical and government updates–so we might best understand the situation and respond accordingly.
 
As California releases guidelines for group gatherings, we want to be team-players who work alongside our communities, cities, county, and country to do our part in minimizing the spread of the virus, as we pray for its swift demise. This means we will modify our regular services and events.
 
At this time we believe the most prudent and compassionate approach is to postpone our large worship services for a limited time.
 
We will not gather for our regular Sunday activities at church until further notice.
 
On Sunday, you will be able to access a virtual worship service from our website that will include music, message, and related announcements.
 
Additionally, you can still give your offering online here, or by mailing gifts to Faith Community Church (P.O. Box 130850 Carlsbad, CA 92013)
 
Please take time as families to love God, glorify Jesus, and grow in your faith.
 
However you find yourself studying God’s Word, we want to remind you that the Church (with a capital C) is the Body of Christ—not a building.
 
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit?…Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.” (1 Corinthians 6:19; 12:27).
 
In the end, we are glad to know that we have a faithful God who keeps us in His good care (Psalm 23). So, we are not unduly worried or afraid as we respond to this need. We recall what King David said, “Our God is a refuge, strength, and ever-present help in times of trouble!
 
Thus, even if we do not formally meet together, we still share the common bond of Christ in us and are connected by the same spiritual “bloodline” (as we’ve been learning while studying Acts).
 
This is also an opportunity for each of us to be the body of Christ to our neighbors and live out the call to “love God and love your neighbor as yourself” as well as to “do good to all men…” (Matthew 22:36-40; Galatians 6:10)
 
Be aware of how this crisis is affecting others around you and see what God would lead you to do to love and care for them.
 
We will continue to monitor the situation daily and keep you informed via church email blasts, our Facebook & Instagram pages, and website—so please check those sources for the latest information.
 
Please let us know if there is anything you need in the course of this temporary change. We will be in touch! Blessings!

Church Picnic (4/28)

You’ve probably noticed that spring is in full swing!

Having some good ol’ outdoor family fun is a great way to get to know each other better while enjoying delicious food and warmer weather in the process.

Our annual church picnic (Sunday, April 28) is open to everyone of all ages. Make a day of it by joining us at our church Worship Service (10:15am) at the Encinitas Community Center before heading over to Stagecoach Park for lunch and activities for the whole family (12:15-3:00pm).

Stagecoach Park is located at 3420 Camino de los Coches in Carlsbad.

There will be a number of benches to sit on, but we encourage you to bring the lawn chair of your choice to relax in.

Kids will love our FREE Bounce House and face-paintings.

Teens and adults can enjoy a friendly game of Ultimate Frisbee and other sports.

The main dish for lunch will be provided by us.

If you are currently a part of Faith Community, we ask you bring a side-dish or dessert to share (sign-up at church or use the contact form below to tell us what you are bringing).

If you are guests, lunch is on us–just plan to bring your appetite.

While it is not necessary to RSVP, we would really love to know if you plan to come (so we can plan to have enough food). Use the form below to give us a heads up that you are coming or to request more information. We’d love to hear from you!
