Today's update

Pastor Crawford with pastor Matt Farlow


In today's update, Pastor Crawford interviews our Care Ministry Pastor, Matt Farlow. Pastor Matt discusses how when difficult times and circumstances happen your life, our Care Ministry is eager to step into those gaps with you and provide someone who can listen and love you well, and ultimately help you get back on the pathway of discipleship.

We also get a peek into Pastor Matt's life as he and Pastor Crawford share stories about his family and Pastor Crawford's fond memories of The Little Mermaid!

We invite you to explore the Ministry Spotlight below to find out more about this ministry that is vital to who we are at Fellowship!


CARE MINISTRY SPOTLIGHT


Our mission here at Fellowship is to glorify God by making disciples of Jesus who love God passionately and love others unconditionally. Each person at our church, young and old, can and should engage together in pursuing this direction! However, life can be challenging, and when struggles personally or relationally enter into the picture, our progress along this path of discipleship can slow down or even stop. This is where our Care Ministry can help. 

Opportunities for individual care exist where you can meet with someone trained to give individual care to you and your situation. Stephen Ministers excel at giving encouragement and support during and after a difficult time. Soul Care Ministers are great at connecting the dots between a person’s pain and struggles, and the truth and promises of God’s Word. Marriage Mentors guide married couples in building strong marriages as well as healing marriages where there is brokenness.

Group care environments are set up for people going through the pain of separation and divorce or through the journey of grief. Because there are a large variety of ways our lives can be impacted by sin and brokenness, either due to our own sin or by the sin of another person, there are groups like Journey and re:generation that help bring recovery in Christ when life is broken.

To provide care and encouragement in unexpected times, there are those who pray, make visits to the hospital, and care for the homebound. There are even some who combine their sewing skills with their heart for prayer and produce prayer quilts—tangible reminders of God’s love and care.

All of us deal with hurt. We just don’t want you to hurt alone. Our Care Ministry team doesn’t have the ability to fix every pain or heal every hurt, but we strive to come alongside and go together to the One who can (Hebrews 4:14-16).

***UPDATED TIME***

worship on the green

October 18, 11AM

***NOTE THERE WILL NOT BE A 9AM SERVICE THIS DAY***


Many of our Fellowship Family are longing to gather in a safe way and for a variety of reasons may not feel comfortable inside the Worship Center on a Sunday morning. For that reason, we are excited about the Worship Service for the entire family that is planned for October 18 at 11am outside on The Green (the field beside the Student Center).

This will be a special day of Worship music, a message from Pastor Crawford, and a time of celebrating Communion together.

You are asked to bring your own chairs or picnic blankets and place them in the designated areas as we practice social distancing. Please wear a mask as you are entering, leaving, or interacting with your socially distant neighbors. Registration is required.

We can't wait to Fellowship with you!

NEW TOOLS FOR OUR PARENTS AND KIDS


We are excited about a new resource for you and your children called FELLOWSHIPKIDS TREEHOUSE. This is a new video curriculum available to families each Sunday morning and is a fun place where we can hang out together each week to learn more about how to love God and love others.

The video will include a skit, worship, and a time to dig into God’s word. Grab your learning lens and join us as we move through the New Testament—beginning to end! Alongside the video each week there will be additional resources to help your kids continue to grow and learn. Some of those resources are designed for your child to complete by themselves and some are to do as a family.

Also, look out for the new Challenge Card! Using the video and additional resources, your child will have fun and spiritually focused challenges to complete over a 4-5 week time period. Once they complete the card, there will be different ways they can return it to the FellowshipKids team to receive a prize!

The video and additional resources are geared towards our Early Childhood through Elementary friends. We are super excited about our new video curriculum and resources and invite you and your family to join us on this new journey!

Wondering where to start? We recommend starting with the video. From there, you can choose to work your way through some or all of the additional resources provided over the next week.
