WESLEYAN SMALL GROUPS
DAY: Starting on: October 3rd • 10:00 – 11:30 AM • Chapel
EVENING: Starting on: October 4th • 6:30 – 8:00 PM • Building D
When people risk joining together with others in a common desire to know and love God and neighbor more fully the Holy Spirit will be present in recognizable ways. Discipleship in early Methodism was centered on this conviction. Beyond curriculum-driven studies, Wesley organized his churches into small groups that met weekly to share how they were doing spiritually by answering the basic question: “How is it with your soul?” Join Pastor Thomas and Michelle Rebel to learn about Wesleyan Small Groups and practice what became the heartbeat of the Methodist movement. You can register Here.
CANCER BRACELETS ARE AVAILABLE
During all Services this weekend in the Atrium
This weekend we will be hosting our annual “Colors for Cancer”. We recognize that far too many people have been diagnosed with cancer or know somebody who has. We want to honor you and those you love by inviting everybody to wear the color that represents the type of cancer that has affected you or a loved one that weekend as well as stop by our Atrium to pick up God is Big Enough bracelets representing each of the cancer types. These bracelets will remain in our Atrium for the month of October.

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.

Capstone is a multi-week program during the spring semester designed to help seniors in high school PREPARE for life as a Christ follower after high school. Throughout Capstone students will learn to CONNECT with God and with their peers, SERVE those within their community, and LEAD within the student ministry and the church as a whole. We accomplish these goals by combining deep Christ-centered discussions with hands-on activities that help develop important life skills.
