Thank you again for supporting FCMC through your prayers. This week, I wanted to share a bit about what’s going on with our church in terms of our Board of Stewards, Mission, Discipleship, and Worship. Yesterday, we reported on the Board of Stewards. Today it’s….
We are developing a seasonal rhythm. From mid-June to mid-August, we rest from our organized mission activity. From mid-August to Thanksgiving, we work. So mission picks back up later this month.
Mission is the fruit of discipleship. Tomorrow, I’ll send out some news on our discipleship ministry. Suffice it to say that good things are happening in discipleship and that fuels what you read below.
That said, FCMCers have been involved in a fair amount of mission on their own this summer. Several of us got to work in project through a ministry called “Both Hands: One for the Widow, One for the Orphan” that helped raise funds for our friends the Libby’s to adopt two orphans while working to fix up the home of Mrs. Corrin, a widow in St. Augustine. Several took time to reach out to neighbors or to pray with people in need. And last week, a number of us went down town to strap car seats onto a bus, pray, and send off 16 teen moms, their babies, and Young Lives leaders to Young Lives camp! Looking ahead, please pray for those who are volunteering with Young Lives again this fall.
As you might expect, mission charges us up!
So, thank you again for praying and supporting FCMC. What we do flows from who we are – we are God’s children, saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, created anew for good works which God had in mind before hand. (Seen Ephesians 2:8-10)
Thank you for helping us on the journey! Your encouragement and prayers mean so much! And thank you for reading and for supporting God’s work at First Coast Missional Communities!
