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.

Meals On Wheels

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. 

Habitat for Humanity

Our church partners with Trinity Habitat for Humanity to build two houses each year— one in the spring and one in the fall. Be a part of the next Habitat for Humanity build and make the dream of homeownership come true for a family in need. Volunteers of all skill levels, age 16 and up, are welcome; tools will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own. (Volunteers ages 16-17 must have a release signed by their parents/guardians.) Spots are limited. Lunch will be provided. Contact serving@fmcm.org for more information.

Hands Of Christ

Hands of Christ ministry helps with minor home repairs for the elderly and disabled in the Mansfield community. Workdays in the spring are the third Saturday of March, April, and May. The fall workdays are the third Saturday in September, October, and November. Volunteers of all ages and abilities are encouraged to serve – there is something for everyone to do! If you are looking for ways to get involved and serve your neighbors, we’d love to have you! For questions, contact serving@fmcm.org.

Serving @ First

This one-hour class prepares you to serve, teaches the basics of our church’s mission, gives direction for spiritual leadership, and provides Safe Sanctuary training. Following the class, those seeking a place to serve will receive guidance for the next steps. Contact Vicky Hale for more information at vickyh@fmcm.org. 

Community Assistance

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.
