First Methodist's Weekly Newsletterby Shelby Meeks
Have you turned in your Together Commitment Card? This past weekend we had an opportunity for everybody to turn in their Together Commitment Cards. If you were unable to attend worship this weekend you can see Pastor David's message here. You can fill out a commitment card online.
Our church office will be closed starting at noon on Wednesday, November 21 through November 22 for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Our normal office hours will resume on Monday, November 26. Our Pastors and Staff here at First Methodist Mansfield want to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!

Care Ministers - Recovery Ministry
Celebrate Recovery is a safe community to find support, hope, and freedom from the struggles and realities that we all face through transitions, hurt, pain, loss, or addiction of any kind. Celebrate Recovery meets weekly on Thursday nights. We provide support for the whole family as, when one person is hurting or struggling, others in the home are as well. We offer Nursery (6 weeks - K), Celebration Place (1st - 5th grade), The Landing (6th - 12th grade), and Celebrate Recovery (adults). The nursery is available for children in Kindergarten and younger. For more information about our Recovery Ministries, contact Katie Bonner.
