Mission Ministry

Webmaster's Note: The FMBC Mission Ministry's focus is being revised; check back for new information and contact person(s). For now, we will look at one of the newly formed ministries under the broad Missions Ministry heading.

Community Disaster Response Ministry

“The (Christian) disciples, as each one was able, decided to provide help for the brothers and sisters living in Judea. This they did, sending their gift to the elders by Barnabas and Saul” (Acts 11:29-30).

After Stephen was martyred for his faith, the early church began to be perse-cuted. Some of the believers fled from Jerusalem, Israel and settled at Anti-och, about 300 miles north of Jerusalem. Years later, a famine swept over Israel. The Christians at the Antioch church sent relief to their Christian brethren living in Israel.

Based on the biblical account found in Acts 11, the FMBC Mission Ministry, under the guidance of the Board of Christian Education, has moved forward and is in the process to establish a Community Disaster Response Ministry. Our approach is based on the Antioch church model. The Antioch church met the needs of fellow believers and others living in the area who were hurting - even though the Antioch believers did not personally know the people they helped. They gave spontaneously, and proportionately.

Purpose of the Community Disaster Relief Ministry:
To bring God’s hope, healing and renewal to people whose lives have been disrupted by a disaster.

What FMBC Will Do When There Is a Community Disaster:
Pray: As communities work to recover, FMBC will keep the community and those who work on the community’s behalf in prayer. We will remember them in our worship services.
Connect: We will reach-out to gain as much information as possible to help meet needs. Contact will be made with individuals and or families, and other community agencies.
Respond: We will provide material goods, human resources and financial help. In addition, we will supply spiritual support. A team of FMBC members, along with the Pastor and Associate Pastor will lead the congregation in ways FMBC will respond.
