First Methodist Mansfield

A Christmas Celebration • In-Person & Online

We cannot wait to celebrate the Christmas season with you and your family. This year we are offering 9 services over two days so that we can provide plenty of room for everybody to worship with one another. Our December 23rd services are perfect for those of you who work on Christmas Eve, want to avoid large gatherings or have another tradition on Christmas Eve. All of our services will also be offered online if that is your preference. Below is a description of all of the services and the times they are offered.

Each year, our Christmas Eve offering goes towards our ministry partner, ZOE. ZOE transforms the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children through a three-year empowerment program, guiding them from poverty and neglect to self-sufficiency and community. It is one of the most powerful examples of transformation through empowerment. Our church has partnered with ZOE for over 11 years helping a total of 15 groups while transforming and empowering over 5740 children in Rwanda, India, Zimbabwe, and Guatemala. Your offering this Christmas Eve will go towards helping many others through this life-changing program.

We will have a worship pack for each child complete with a glow stick for them to use during the candlelight portion of our service so everybody can carry out the light of Christ into the world.
