Join Us in Loving and Serving Those in Our Community and Around the World

Mission work is not for just anyone, it is for everyone! You have been specifically, strategically, and purposefully designed to make Jesus visible locally and around the world. Through participating in the world Christian movement, every believer can find a way to live with vital significance in God’s global purpose. Identify and eliminate anything getting in the way of your ability to share your own story of redemption with others. Being a missionary requires finding your own chapter within God’s larger story of love for all people and offering your life to others in a way that brings glory to God.

Our greatest resource as a church is not our finances, building, or programs. Our greatest resource is a gift from God; it is the love of Jesus Christ within the people of our congregation. Because God desires for all people to know, love, and serve only Him, our church exists to make Jesus visible to our community and throughout the world. We demonstrate this not only in the way we worship, grow and serve in his name, but also in the way we work to transform our city, merge the biblical with the social Gospel, show spontaneous compassion to others, devote ourselves to service, and equip families to bond together in Christ. We are no longer living for ourselves and our own selfish desires. We are Loving Christ, Loving One Another, and Loving the City, in order that He may receive all glory and honor.

If you’d like to get involved in Local or Global Missions here at FPC, please let us know!

Rev. A. Mitchell Moore

KinMart
School Supply Drive & “Shopping Event” for Foster Families

Saturday, July 24 | 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM | Westminster Hall

FPC is one of the host sites for KinMart, an event designed by South Texas Alliance for Orphans to help local foster families as their children go back to school. On July 24, we will welcome families to Westminster Hall for an enjoyable and cost-less “shopping” experience for school supplies.

The goal of KinMart is to offer a shopping day that meets the families’ needs and also gives dignity to all members of the family. While the event will still be free for those shopping, we will give each child fun money to shop for their own supplies. This is a great opportunity to introduce the families to our church community and ministry, which will hopefully lead to a long term relationship with Christ.

For any questions, please email Danielle Couch at daniellem.couch@gmail.com or Lindsay Selli at lindsays@fpcsat.org.


You can help in two ways: donate school supplies by July 18 or volunteer the day of the event.

Volunteer for KinMart

The families will shop from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM, but we need volunteers to help with set up one hour before, be present with the families during the two hour event, and clean up 30 minutes after the event is over. Volunteers can serve by organizing and restocking supplies on tables, helping families shop, collecting “fun money,” assisting with check out, and building relationships with the families through conversation.


Donate from Amazon Wishlist

If you are able, please donate supplies from the list HERE. Donations will be collected in plastic tubs in Ave. E entrance through July 18.

Learning on Mission

Learning on Mission is an opportunity to learn from FPC ministry partners. This initiative will educate you about what God is doing through our mission partners while equipping and empowering you to serve locally and globally.


 

This episode of Learning on Mission features a conversation to help us learn more about the Person and work of the Holy Spirit in our lives and throughout the global Church. Please watch the interview video and/or listen to the podcast, and share it with others as you engage in discussion and prayer.

PODCAST NOTES:

  • Time stamps: (These will change as cuts are made)
    • The person and work of the Holy Spirit (14:22)
    • Revelation (32:05)
    • Sanctification (41:41)
  • Small Group Questions:
    • Why is unity so elusive in our culture today?
    • Where do you see the Church conforming to the pattern of this world in division?
    • How does our common identification in Christ compel us to be unified as the Body of Christ?
    • How does understanding the Holy Spirit as a Person of the Trinity shape how you understand your relationship with Him?

Thank you for joining us as we learn from our Global Mission Partners. Please contact missions@fpcsat.org to learn about serving opportunities or to connect with our ministry partners in Poland.

What is Islam?

 

The first episode, “What is Islam?” will help us begin to understand Islam while we are encouraged to pray for Muslims to know Jesus during Ramadan. Please watch the interview video and/or listen to the podcast, and share it with others as you engage in discussion and prayer.

PODCAST NOTES:

Read through 1 John 4:7-21 and think about/discuss how you understand the three key points that were shared in this interview: God is love, personal relationship with God, and assurance of salvation.

How do these truths encourage as we consider building relationships with our Muslim neighbors?

  • How might the truth of grace versus works challenge you, and help you build bridges with Muslims?
  • What does hospitality mean to you, especially when thinking about our Muslim neighbors?

Thank you for joining us as we learn from our Global Mission Partners.

  • Please pray for the Muslim world through Ramadan (April 12-May 12). Prayer guides are available.
  • Please prayerfully consider a corridor to care for Muslims in San Antonio.
  • For more information about our ministry partners in the Muslim World, about 30-Day Prayer booklets, or ways to care for Muslims in our city, please contact missions@fpcsat.org
