Reflections of 2019

We recently asked people what

was their highlights of 2019 at FAC.

Here’s what some of you had to say

...

Russell: “Short-term missions

have increased how many people

are getting involved and raised

awareness. It’s affected many lives

including mine as I hear the stories

that come back with the people

that have gone.”

Debbie: “The [Life on Life] discipleship program has been effective for

me. I’m a discipler and it’s amazing just to pour into someone’s life a

little bit and (see) the effect it can have.”

Owen: “I’m amazed at how FAC has grown and [I’m] happy that it’s grown.

As many things around the city have been collapsing, it seems people

have found a place to be excited about growth and God.”

Christie: “The best thing I see at FAC and what keeps me here is

community – through small groups, socially with friends, and volunteering.

There’s been a lot of challenging circumstances in my own life, in the

church community,

but God has showed up!”

Warren: “I attend choir and I just see people in love with Jesus and I’m

learning that God is doing amazing things in their lives, because they’ve

decided to engage in this community. They’re the people I know the most

here and it’s very encouraging.”...
