First in Mission
6th Annual “First in Mission”
Once again this spring, there will be a “gold rush” in Fargo-Moorhead. People from all walks of life participating in “First in Mission” will wear gold t-shirts and invade our community. Their one mission will be to do mission.
First in Mission is a congregational effort to engage in God’s mission that is happening locally. The purpose of the week is threefold:
- Create a unique opportunity to get the church into the community.
- Connect people to places of service and people in need (the last, least, lost, and lonely)
- Raise awareness that we are all part of God’s mission.
Our First in Mission week will be the week of April 23-29. The week will begin with Sunday morning worship as we commission those who will be serving throughout the week. They will serve others through local agencies along with other places of need. Registration for these places and times of service will be announced in early April.
On Sunday, April 30, after our week of mission work, we will celebrate the culmination of what First in Mission has brought to the FM community. Moreover, we will celebrate God’s work in the community through our hands!
So mark your calendars, the gold rush of First in Mission is coming this spring!
God’s work. Our hands.
