“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. 34“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25
FMBC OUTREACH AND EVANGELISM
American Cancer Society: Through this partnership members are encouraged to volunteer for fundraising initiatives in support of the fight against cancer. Our yearly fundraising event is the Relay for Life.
Feeding Ministry: Just as Jesus performed miracles in the feeding of the four thousand and the five thousand with small fish and loaves of bread, our feeding ministry has been designed to feed the multitudes of hungry people in the community. This ministry is made up of people who have a mind to serve the less fortunate. They volunteer at The Daily Bread food bank which supplies food that is distributed each Thursday, along with donations by other resources to meet the needs of those that are without food within our targeted ministry area.
Missions Ministry: This ministry seeks to reach beyond the boundaries of our local community to spread the gospel of Christ, by precept and example. Through the preaching of the Word, and acts of kindness, our mission is to bring all who seek Him, a greater revelation of His life, His teachings and be a demonstrable witness of His power through the outworking of His Spirit. Our current key areas of focus include international and local missions:
Nursing Home Ministry: The Nursing Ministry provides encouragement and support for those that are elderly and the infirm in nursing and convalescent homes, and assisted living facilities. Almost anyone of any age can participate in the nursing home ministry. Only a concern for the elderly and a desire to provide Christian care giving is required. The residents are just sitting there, waiting for you to visit.
S.W.A.T. (Soul Winning Attack Team), is designed to keep the great commission that Jesus gave his disciples which is to "Go into the hedges and highways and compel them to come into the house of God that it might be filled.""(Luke 14:23) This ministry reaches out to those in the community that have not yet given their lives to Christ by ministering to meet their spiritual needs through the word of God.
