Come experience our Celebrate Recovery Service!
Thursdays • 6:30 PM • Chapel
Celebrate Recovery is a biblical centered 12 step program that helps us overcome our hurts, hang-ups and habits and is a safe place. Here at First Methodist Mansfield, we believe that we are all in recovery from something. We all experience stress, loss, pain, grief, and hurts throughout our lives. When we are struggling or in pain, it is natural and easy to feel more isolated and find it harder to cope. Our hope is that through life’s toughest times and challenges, you find in us a community to meet you where you are and walk beside you through this special recovery based ministry.
Celebrate Recovery meets every Thursday night at 6:30 and have childcare from ages 6 weeks – 4th grade. If you would like more information, please email us at email@example.com. You can also visit our website here.

Kairos Weekend November 2 – 5
Give the gift of cookies! Our Kairos Prison Ministry is in need of 3,000 DOZEN cookies for the upcoming Kairos Weekend later on this month. This simple offering of cookies actually has a deeper meaning. Each inmate at the Boyd unit will receive a dozen cookies, then each person going through the Kairos Weekend will receive another dozen cookies for themselves, and then another dozen cookies to give to somebody else they have wronged. The cookies we give as a church serve as a symbol of grace and forgiveness. How incredible is that?
Cookies will be collected the weekend of October 28th and 29th at our Ministry Corner located in our Atrium. If you are interested in baking cookies for this ministry, visit our website at FMCM.org/Kairos to see the specific guidelines.
