May is a busy month here at First Methodist Mansfield

by First Methodist Mansfield

Our ministries are gearing up for an exciting May and want you to be a part of all we have going on! Dive into the details below and sign up for all that interests you. If you need more information about any of these events or opportunities, feel free to email us here or text us at 817-477-6498 and a member of our staff will connect with you. 

Our goal here at First Methodist Mansfield is to help everybody take the next step in their faith journey. For many, their next steps are to join the church and plug into serving at the church and in our community through several ministry opportunities we offer.

Confirmation Sunday
May 5th  •  3:00 pm  •  Sanctuary 

This Sunday is a big day in the lives of our 31 Confirmands. All are invited to attend our Confirmation Service this Sunday as our Confirmands take this big step in their faith journey and become full members of First Methodist Mansfield. Below are the names of our Confirmands. You are welcome to be in prayer for all of them by name, and you are also invited to write them a little note if you so choose. If you would like to write our Confirmands a note, please bring them by our church office at 951 N. Walnut Creek Dr. between the hours of 9 am and 3 pm or you are welcome to drop them by our Connecting Point this weekend before or after worship and we will make sure our Confirmands get them.
