We believe that everybody has a story to share, and yet many of us dismiss our stories because we feel like they aren't powerful enough or because of decisions we made in the past that makes us sound less than perfect. Join us in worship starting October 19 and 20 as we take hold of our own stories and begin to understand the importance of being brave and sharing our stories with others. Also, you don't want to miss worship on November 16 and 17. Our very own Dr. V (Dr. Jim Vaszauskas), Superintendent of Mansfield ISD, will be sharing his story in every worship service. This is a series that you do not want to miss. Do you want to share your story? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!

Come take a trip to the Holy Land! If you choose to be a part of this experience, the Bible will come alive to you in a new and vibrant way. This is not so much a vacation as it is a pilgrimage. Among many other experiences, you will pray in the Garden of Gethsemane, walk on the steps where Jesus taught in Jerusalem, receive holy communion at the Garden Tomb, take a boat ride across the Sea of Galilee and have the chance to remember your baptism in the waters of the Jordan River. So many sacred and special moments await those who choose to be a part of this special journey. For more information go to fmcm.org/holyland.
