In keeping with Luke 4:18-19 (Isaiah 61:1-4), we are compelled by love and obedience to live, speak, and bring Jesus’ Gospel to our community.
For purposes of organization and administration, we separate our missions and evangelistic activities. Missions Ministry is described as supporting other ministries and Churches outside our immediate area.
Our goal in evangelism is very simple to instruct and develop followers of Christ (Disciples). We believe that the primary method of developing followers of Christ is by relationships. So our methodology in support of this belief has us doing activities that allow us to interact with as many people as possible in a face to face manner. We are not dogmatic in how we carry out our Church Mission (Luke 4:18-19). Currently, we use several methods to promote the Gospel. Those methods include, one on one coversations, Bible studies, Vacation Bible School (VBS), social assistance, and other special events.
Demographically, we have groups geared towards families, men, women, youth, and children. Our current geographic focus is South Toledo (43614, 43615, and 43609 zip codes). We are not limited to this but for now this is our focus. It is our heart to commit to intecessory prayer for individuals, families, and our community. It is our desire to let people know that the Lord see's them, know's them, and love's them. They are not alone.
Our efforts to touch the community continue. It is our hope to see South Toledo become a place of opportunity for individuals and families. We pray that we can help inspire all to aspire for greater things - first starting with a right relationship with Jesus the Christ.
In 2021, we began to work on two "big Ideas", 1. Next Generation evangelism; 2. Pro-Life.
Our 2021 outreach activities are as follows:
FCC is participating along with Church of the Cross, Westgate Chapel's 43614 bible study, New Directions Ministries in the Saturate Toledo effort. We are attempting to place the Jesus film and a tract on every single residence in the 43614 zip code. http://www.saturatetoledo.org. We have one zone to complete as of Feb 2021.
Saturate Toledo - we have agreed to assist Vision and Mosaic Ministries in the 43609. We will start working on this zip code once the winter weather breaks.
Once a month we support Mosaic Ministries by cooking and serving a dinner to the residents of Old South Toledo. Please contact email@example.com for more information, dates and times.
Next Gen Evangelism, Gamer podcast - https://m.twitch.tv/fccgameroom/profile
Prolife - we are in the beginning stages to assist Mom's House.
Byrnedale Community Partner - we have the great privilege to serve Brynedale Elementary School. Starting Feb 22, we will become a Toledo Public School Learning Center during their hybrid class schedule. We are hoping to host around 12-15 kids during the week days. If you would like to get involved with our efforts at Byrnedale Elementary or TPS Learning Center, please contact Christine@aroundthefamily.com for more details.
http://oneheartonecity.us - this is a multi-church and multi-denominational effort to bring Christ's love to our community. We kicked this off on June 14 at Swan Creek Park. We suspect this activity will start up again during the spring and summer months.
Still on hold due to the Pandemic - For employees of Lucas County Children's Service, we now have a bible study once a week in your Adam St. building. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, if you would like to attend. We will also committed to do other activities to serve foster kids, foster families, and LCCS.
It is with great joy that we announce that our Missional Congregation (Genesis Foursquare) has started at Genesis Village located 2429 S. Reynolds Rd, Toledo, OH 43614. The Sunday service begins at 11 AM. Suspended due to the Pandemic.
