Things You Need to Know...
COVID-19 FAC’s Response
As followers of Jesus Christ, we know we‘re not alone; even in a time of
great uncertainty, our God is faithful, He is present, He is not surprised.
In the midst of a very legitimate concern this is an opportunity for us
to serve those around us. There will be neighbours and friends who
need hope and practical support. We can all show the love of Jesus by
checking, picking up groceries, prescriptions, or other needed items.
At the same time, there are those of us who find ourselves in need of
help at this time. You‘re not alone; there are many others on a similar
journey. Where are you in your journey?

Message from Pastor James
Many years ago I began
to question if I really
had faith in God. I had
accepted Him as a teenager
but now married, with
children, living far from my
old home, I wondered, “Do I
really have faith, or am I just
going through the motions as
Around about this same time,
an urgent phone call informed
me my father’s recent
hospitalization had turned
extremely serious and he was
not expected to live very long.
Running upstairs to pack, I
picked up a Sunday School
paper off the steps and couldn’t help noticing this Scripture verse: “God
(in all things) works for the good …” (Romans 8:28). I held onto that verse
as we flew home that night.
Driving from the airport to our home, I was told my father had died. I
had such a calming peace come over me and felt awkward that I wasn’t
overcome with upset emotions.
The next day as I raised my head from looking down at my father in his
casket, to my amazement, in a brief flash God revealed to me that He is
my real Father! What perfect timing! At the very time He took my (earthly)
father, He revealed Himself to me as my heavenly Father.
God went beyond affirming I had faith; He gave me a reality of His
existence. I was changed – “born again,” filled with His Holy Spirit in order
to walk out His purposes for my life!
God used our recent FAC women’s Bible study on Jude to open my eyes
that Jesus had, by the power of the Holy Spirit, kept me (Jude 1:1) all those
years until I really wanted to know Him. God looked upon my heart and
knew when I really wanted Him and His will for my life.
