Meet Faith Community Church:
Faith Community Church was founded in 1984 when a church in River Falls prayed for the opportunity to start a new church in the St. Croix Valley. After a few years, the service was moved to a new building in downtown Hudson and has seen consistent growth. God has blessed FCC to not only serve the people of Hudson, but to reach out across the Valley, planting churches in New Richmond, River Falls, Somerset, Baldwin, and Prescott. We are committed to serving Jesus through a personal relationship with Him. This church prides itself on outreach to those who are lost and transforming their lives for the better as we continue to work on a more promising approach to making disciples of Christ. We want to highlight God in the world as we share the good news of His amazing grace and increase gospel-inspired living throughout the St. Croix Valley.
