Fulfilling God’s Plan

At FCC, we strive to continually be evaluating our ministries and how we are doing outreach. 
 
Our Strategic Planning Team is responsible for prayerfully evaluating and creating a plan formed around scripture and the church’s core beliefs. The name, Fulfilling God’s Plan, comes from Jeremiah 29:11, and it is the mission of the team to follow God’s plan for FCC Aurora and help to implement the plan.
 
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.  Jeremiah 29:11

Dear FCC Friends and Family,

What an exciting time to be part of the FCC Aurora family.

In 1913, several families had one vision; to honor and glorify God. Their vision was quickly multiplied. In 1962 the vision was re-ignited with the construction of our current facility. Over many years, we have thrived. Supporting and nurturing our community, all for the glory of God. Now, in 2018, we are at a crossroads. We have entered a new season at FCC. A season of challenge, tested faith, and unknown future. But one message is abundantly clear:

God’s work at FCC is not yet finished!!!

As many of you know, we have been strategically praying, pleading and planning over the last several years. I am pleased to announce our new growth campaign called: Unfinished.

God has breathed new life into this church year after year, and He is not done with us yet.

With the help of our Kingdom partners, we have developed a growth campaign that is attainable, biblical, strategic, and God-centered.

Our strategic planning team has been tirelessly pouring out their hearts into this campaign, and the results are tremendous. I am pleased to announce that on Sunday, 2/25/18, we are ready to reveal the initial details of the campaign. And we want all to attend.

Why do we want you here? Because you are the church. FCC cannot fulfill its mission without you. We are asking you to partner with us on this exciting journey by first collectively approving the campaign. A journey that will be both incredibly challenging and incredibly rewarding at the same time. I am asking that each of you begin praying about how you can partner with us on this journey. Together, we will continue God’s Unfinished work.

In Christ,

Pastor Josh Matson

Update: February 1st

Here we are. Its already February. How many resolutions have you kept? That’s OK, there’s always next year…

 

Truthfully, we aren’t very good about keeping our resolutions. Our intentions are well-meaning, and our mindset is positive, but something always gets in the way. Whether it be time, money, or determination, our plans usually fall short of our intentions.

 

There’s only One, who not only has good intentions but has a 100% success rate when it comes to follow through; God. And the good news, God’s resolutions include us.

 

Even in the most desperate times, God has a plan. In Jeremiah 29, the prophet writes a letter to a group of Israelites that have been exiled to Babylon. The letter contains a remarkable message of encouragement. Jeremiah tells the exiles to hold fast. Although times may be tough, and our human plans may have fallen through, God has a plan for you (the exiles) that is infinitely greater than anything dreamt up by man, and His plan will succeed.

 

Jeremiah’s message of encouragement had a specific audience, but our God is unchanging, and He also has a plan for us.

 

Here at FCC, we have resolved to stay the course and fulfill God’s plan for us.

 

Our Strategic Planning Team is crafting a 10-year plan that includes updates of ministries, education, outreach, community, small groups, and facilities.

 

Our Prayer Team has been praying, pleading and asking God for guidance, discernment, and wisdom. With the intervention of the Master Planner, FCC will grow, prosper, spread the gospel and glorify God for a long time to come.

 

Each month we will be updating on the progress of Fulfilling God’s Plan. So, stay tuned to the Round-Up and our website fccaurora.org for specific details concerning our growth initiative.

 

We appreciate your support and prayers; for you are the church.
 
 

In Christ,

First Christian Church of Aurora Staff and Leadership
