Our ultimate goal is for our entire church to be able to safely gather together again. As we move forward towards that ultimate goal, we believe that God has provided a vision for the next phase for our church as we continue moving through this season.
The vision for our next phase is to be A Church of 1000 House Churches.
As we take this next step, we are inviting you to build on what we have already been doing by continuing to participate in our new online worship experience we have been offering each week, and enhancing that – at your own pace and accordingly to your comfort level – by joining together with a smaller number in the smaller setting of your choosing to participate in worship together.
Connecting with family members, neighbors, co-workers, friends who already attend our church and those you would invite to experience First Methodist Mansfield for the first time, we want to encourage you to form these house church communities.
Moving forward, we want to equip you to be the church for one another, and we want to be the church for our hurting world.
Want to learn more about this vision?
Below are video messages that our Pastor David has recorded to sharpen the focus and clarity around the 1000 House Church vision. He will continue to share a new video messaged every Wednesday night at 7 pm live on all of our online platforms. Join us live each Wednesday as we move into this next phase together.
