Community Impact

Through our Community Impact Ministries, we partner with organizations and groups to make a difference within our region. We collect and deliver food to share with the homeless, the elderly, and families in need. We participate in construction projects to build and repair homes. We provide mentoring and assistance for children in our local schools. We bring together healthcare professionals and organizations to improve community health. We serve in ministries that create Christian communities in prisons. We serve together in many other significant ways to share the love of God and make a positive impact in our neighborhoods.

Heart Meals is a Ministry that delivers soup and/or casseroles to people who attend FMCM to remind them they are never alone and we are praying for them. You can help with this by: 

• Make a casserole or chicken soup (Dates for drop-off and kinds of casseroles are in our weekly Mission Enews as needed.
• Help deliver a Heart Meal

Our church is the drop-off point for the Mansfield area Meals on Wheels program of Tarrant County. Delivering meals at the front door for our homebound neighbors is one of our ongoing volunteer opportunities with Meals On Wheels. Volunteers come from all walks of life: individuals, couples, retirees, stay-at-home moms, and dads, as well as groups. Anyone who can spare 1 ½ hours just one day per week Monday through Friday can change someone’s life for the better. If you would like to learn more about volunteering weekly or as an occasional sub, contact serving@fmcm.org.

An excellent way to assist the elderly, disabled, and disadvantaged in our community is with yard or minor exterior work on their homes. These are easy service projects that you can complete on your own time. Contact Susan Luttrell at susanl@fmcm.org for suggestions and contacts.
