Special Programming

Throughout the year, we hold special events just for our Included friends. In this way, our kids are able to take part in similar activities that our other ministries offer while still receiving the specialized care that they need. As we move through the year 2022, these events will be modified to keep our friends, as well as our volunteers and staff safe. If you have any questions about these special events, please drop us an email at included@fmcm.org.

Each summer we offer Vacation Bible Camp for children, teens, and adults with special needs. We have worship, bible study, games/recreations, snacks, crafts, and more! Each day we will explore within our VBC theme while looking at the gospel, its truth, and seeing how it applies to our daily lives. The morning session is for Pre-K – 4th grade and the evening session is for 5th grade – Adults.

Each summer we offer a serving opportunity for middle school through adult-aged individuals alongside the First Methodist Mansfield student ministry during United Mission Week. Mission Week is a week focused on serving our community and connecting with Christ through worship. Students and adult volunteers work in teams going out into the community to be the hands and feet of Christ.

United Mission Week will be July 17 – 21, 2022
Registration is open until July 1st

United Mission Week is an exciting, week of serving in our community! Students and volunteers come together to serve local families through construction projects as well as partnering with local non-profit organizations to serve the Mansfield/Arlington area. The cost for this week of service is $145.
