companies in multiple countries brings. Husband and father who attempts to give my best to my family. Dedicated follower of Christ, grateful to him for his acceptance despite my shortcomings.
Colossians 3:23: Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though you
were working for the Lord and not for people. (GNT)
A few minutes with a short devotional and listening to a few worship songs will move me away from the daily issues of life and focus me on my relationship with Jesus Christ. Doing this with a short time of prayer is an amazing formula for dealing with the normal stress of life and putting Christ at the center of every decision.
I love the engaging nature of the worship music and the practical nature of the
teaching / preaching that we have at Faith Community Church. Meeting people who want to make the world a better place by demonstrating the love of Christ by their actions is amazing.
I’m a married empty nester, with two children, and have been a lifelong believer. I love the outdoors, and like to spend time outside both with sports and hobbies.
Through prayer and scripture, I can hear God speak to me. I also like to connect with him in nature, as you can see the beauty of God’s hand.
Faith Community has been a loving church for us, and has felt
like home since the first time we visited. I love the emphasis on biblically based teaching, and living a life of faith.
Husband and father, machine designer /builder, enjoys a challenge professionally and for fun. My hero is Jesus Christ, who accepted the ultimate challenge of reconciling us to God, and won.
I have a group of favorites but the one that sums it all up is John
I spend 30-45 minutes at the beginning of each day with God and
a cup of tea, reading scripture or a devotional text, and praying.
I enjoy the seeing the likeness of God in such a wide variety of
people and backgrounds.
Married to Kris. Children: David & Becky, Jeffrey, and Danielle & Dave. Love the 3 grandkids (have them first next time!). Best job in the world leading Operations for Urbana, Intervarsity’s Student Missions Conference.
Micah 6:8 has influenced my life in recent years. My favorite New Testament book is II Timothy; Old Testament is a tougher call, I’ll pick Nehemiah.
Through daily bible reading and prayer, good Christian books – An Unhurried Life by Alan Fadling is a good recent read.
Lots! Serving as an Elder, Faith Groups, Brimfield tornado relief and other outreach projects, years of softball …and the enduring God-based relationships that come from doing life together.
Married, middle-aged working mother of three adult children doing my best to love Jesus and live out my faith every day. My life is proof God loves, heals, transforms, protects and provides.
And I will make every effort to see that after my departure you will always be able to remember these things. 2 Peter 1:15
Prayer, Bible reading, daily devotions. I also connect with God by having a close relationship with a couple of ladies that I can pray with, be honest with and with whom I share my struggles.
4. What do you enjoy about Faith Community Church?
We have been attending Faith for over 20 years and I enjoy being a part of God’s work. The staff and people are genuine, honest, and sacrificial with the focus of God’s Kingdom always before them.
I am God’s creation and a continuing work in progress as I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend.
Genesis 1:1 – The whole faith journey begins here.
On a regular basis, in the early morning quiet time of prayer and Bible study or reading. But I love recognizing God’s presence in the everyday moments of life-teachable moments with my kids, being reminded of the godly husband God blessed me with, a God timed meeting with a friend who encourages me or shares advice, seeing others as God’s creations and praying for them with His love.
I enjoy seeing the love and care that people share with those in the
church and outside of the church. I enjoy seeing people maturing in our faith, each working out their own journey in God’s timing. I enjoy seeing and working with leaders whose faith is strong and
Jesus follower, gifted with Mary and Nate.Team oriented, engineer, big picture first, problem solving. Thoughtful conversations. Truly astounded by God’s fingerprints all over creation!
Gen. 1:1 “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the Earth.” There is so much wonder, beauty, intentionality, and love in God’s decision to create. All that follows flows from this.
For me, through contemplation of the wonder, the mystery, the majesty of God Almighty. I use the acronym PRAY for Praise, Return, Ask, and Yield, remembering first who he is (Praise), turning my heart back to him (Return), reviewing areas of concern (Ask), and bowing before him (Yield).
Opportunities and relationships. I have been given so many opportunities to try different things over the years, leading small groups and classes, teaching, helping with worship, leading worship, even preaching, and now helping out on the Elder Board. Combine this with the relationships with those who lead and with friends and acquaintances. These are important just for healthy living, and also provide feedback and learning. Through engaging with opportunities and relationships, we discover more of ourselves and more of God.
Married to Tim with 3 adult children. Former Texan transformed by transferring around the US & Europe. Heart for God’s people, mentoring and FUN! Grateful for God’s continued redemptive love.
Micah 6:8 NCV: The Lord has told you, human, what is good; He has told you what he wants from you: To do what is right to other people, love being kind to others, and live humbly, obeying your God.
I tend to enjoy structured in-depth Bible study and then processing what I’m learning, especially with other women. I have recently begun to learn how to experience God in a deeper way by practicing contemplative prayer and journaling.
I enjoy the weekend worship services with great music and challenging messages. Being a part of the Thursday morning woman’s Bible studies has helped me grow in my relationship withGod and has given me the opportunity to develop meaningful relationships with other women. I love being in a community with people that are serious about their faith.
