Dear First Family,
Tomorrow is our next Come and Go Prayer time in the Sanctuary. From 9-noon, the Sanctuary will be open for you and your family to come pray. We are claiming the space as a house of prayer. Pastors will be present to pray with you and for you as well. Our theme for tomorrow is unity. We want to pray for unity in our families, community, country, and world. In 2 Corinthians 1:10-11, Paul says, “On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many.” Prayer is a great and powerful way we can help each other. God listens and answers prayer. Here is a quick video of what to expect tomorrow. I hope to see all of you there! Just come as you are, no need to register!
I’m very excited about these upcoming ministry opportunities. Please take a look at what is upcoming below.
A Night with New Room. In uncertain times, we need to be reminded of the faithfulness of God. Few know what it’s like to lead through the unknown without losing faith like Pastor Jim Cymbala of the Brooklyn Tabernacle. Join New Room for their first-ever live stream evening of worship, teaching, and prayer. This event is open to everybody and will take place tonight at 6 pm. You don’t want to miss this free event! Register here.
Music with a Mission featuring Josh Weathers. From career-building to Kingdom building! I can’t wait for you to see my interview with Mansfield’s own, Josh Weathers. Enjoy a night of inspiration and music as Josh shares his story with us and what inspired him to change from ascending towards fame in music to promoting two causes for the Kingdom of God: a non-profit in India called Love Like You Mean It and Safe Families for Children. This online event is a collaboration between Guys Night Out and Missions & Serving and will be streamed on October 2 at 7pm. Please mark your calendars and tune in!

Outdoor Worship. We are back and in-person starting on October 4th at 6 pm! We have been working hard to launch a new outdoor worship service on Sunday nights on our new Remote Parking Lot. This new service and space allow us to gather safely and worship with one another in person! We have areas in the parking lot set aside to accommodate everyone’s comfort level with a grassy area for you to sit on a blanket or picnic tables or you can also stay in your car and listen on our FM radio channel. Both our Contemporary Worship Arts and Traditional Worship Arts teams will be present on a stage, along with a short message from Pastor David. We hope that you make plans to join us in person starting on October 4th.
I want to encourage you to worship with us and continue your giving online or by downloading our Church App by texting FMCMAPP to 77977 or by searching FMCM in your App Store.
I thank God for you and praise Him for your faithfulness to the gospel. I pray to see you all soon.
Grace and Peace in Christ,
