Senior year is a time of significant transition and growth. You will experience a shift in responsibility and a growing sense of independence. Challenges will arise as some of the habits, behaviors and beliefs that have gotten you through your younger years don’t hold up as you prepare for life after high school. Unfortunately, this is a common time when young adults get “lost” – whether that’s in terms of career, school, relationships or faith. The Capstone program was developed years ago specifically for students in their final year of high school to help tackle these issues.

What is Capstone?

The goals of Capstone are to PREPARE Seniors for life as a Christ follower after high school. CONNECT students with God and with their peers. SERVE those within our ministry, congregation and community and LEAD through different avenues of Students Ministries and First Methodist Mansfield. We accomplish these goals by combining deep Christ-centered discussions with hands-on activities that help develop important life skills.

When is Capstone?

Sundays  •  January 21 – April 28  •  6:00 -8:00 pm

This year Capstone will begin on Sunday, January 21st and will conclude with the Capstone Service Project on April 28th. We will meet weekly on Sunday nights, following Mansfield ISD school closings and holidays. A full schedule will be provided later this semester.
