Church to join in National Back to Church Sunday

Sep 10, 2013

Faith Christian Outreach Church (FCOC) joins 20,000 churches participating in National Back to Church Sunday on Sept. 15.

Many people talk about America’s deep need for “spiritual awakening” — the need to seek God for His divine help in dealing with the many problems we face. Back to Church Sunday was launched four years ago in response to a survey of thousands of adults in the United States who said they would visit a church if someone would simply invite them.

“The church, with all of its human weakness, is still God’s plan to redeem an individual from the pain and burden that sin brings into our lives. True hope is only experienced in Jesus Christ,” says Monte Knudsen, pastor, Faith Christian Outreach Church.

For many people, church is associated with God’s message of love, yet they do not relate to its liturgy or structure. They wonder if they will be accepted, or even welcomed. Their simple, but actual, fears keep them away even if they would like to try the experience.

For most, a genuine invitation helps break that barrier and brings them to discover the truth of God’s word and His purpose for their lives.

Faith Christian Outreach Church (FCOC) is a non-denominational church located at 1302 E. Washington St. in Mount Pleasant (main campus), with Sunday services at 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. FCOC also has satellite churches at the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center, 200 N. Main St. in Fairfield, and 1506 N. Fifth Ave. in Washington, with Sunday services at 10:30 a.m. at both locations. Members of the community are welcome to join FCOC at one of the three locations on Back to Church Sunday, Sept. 15.
