United Mission Week

Registration opens April 1.

UMW Information Meeting – Wednesday, June 26th

United Mission Week is an exciting week of serving in our community! Students and volunteers come together to engage with our community through construction projects that our Missions Department has arranged, as well as partnering with local non-profit organizations projects. Throughout the week, there will be amazing opportunities for worship, prayer, fun activities, great food, and most importantly of all, experiencing the presence of Jesus together as we serve others. Every night, after a hard day’s work; a much needed shower at their teams assigned shower houses, you will get to hear from gifted and talented worship leaders, speakers, and spend time bonding with your teammates. Throughout the week, First Methodist Mansfield will serve as “home base” for all students and volunteers. Work teams will consist of 2 adults and about 7 other students working on a variety of projects from lawn care to construction.

For more information, please contact students@fmcm.org.

Middle School [Current 6-8th Grade]

Middle School Students arrive each morning to the church at 7:15am where they eat breakfast, make a lunch, and make sure they have all that they need for their project that day. Once their work day is complete, our middle school teams participate in a fun activity before heading to their shower houses. Dinner is provided at the church and then our Middle School teams end their evening with a powerful worship experience before heading home for the night.

*Please note, our Middle School Participants do not spend the night at the church.

High School [Current 9-12th Grade]

High School students arrive on Sunday afternoon at 5:00pm and remain at the church until after closing worship on Thursday evening. Throughout the week, our High School students will take part in a complete work day with their team before heading to their shower house. In the evening our students have dinner with one another along with a powerful worship experience. Each evening there are activities that students can participate in that help build community with one another as well as just have some fun!

*Please note, our campus is closed during United Mission Week. Once a high school student arrives on campus, they may not come and go.

Adult Mentors and Volunteers

The key to having a successful week at United Mission Week is to have a committed group of adult volunteers and mentors pouring into the students. We simply cannot have United Mission Week without you! The greatest need we have is for Work Team Adults. There are two Work Team Adults assigned to each team and their role is to mentor and guide the students at their work sites and serve as mentors to them throughout the week. We hear over and over each year that Work Team Adults get more out of the experience than students. While that is absolutely true, we know what a gift it is for our students to have these adults guiding them that week. Work Team Adults for Middle School teams would need to commit to being there each day from 7:15am – 8:30pm. Work Team Adults for High School teams are asked to make a greater commitment of being on our campus the entire week which also includes spending the night.

We also have a need for other important volunteer positions besides Work Team Adults including kitchen helpers, the mission store, serving snacks, and hosting a shower house. If you have any questions at all, please email us at students@fmcm.org

Included Special Needs Participants

  • Included Experience is open to all of those who are 18 years and older. 

We offer a very unique and meaningful experience this week for our Included Special Needs Participants. We use an adapted version of the Middle School mission week schedule with a greater focus on serving in our community both indoors and outdoors. Participants will be dropped off at 7:15am so they can eat breakfast with all of the work teams before going out to their own mission project and experience. They will then have a fun afternoon activity before heading to dinner and worship. We ask that they be picked up after worship each night at 8:30pm. Spaces are limited to ensure the safety of our participants and overall quality experience.

We are also in need of Included Buddies to help us that week. Buddies will come alongside our Participants and serve as mentors throughout the week. We ask that you are at least 16 years old to serve as a buddy during United Mission Week.

If you have any questions about our Included Experience, please email us at included@fmcm.org.
