Loving and leading all people
to deeper life in Jesus Christ

OUTREACH

FPC is very involved outside the walls of our church building. Our mission to love and lead all people to deeper life in Jesus Christ takes us to various places around our own city of Midland as well as many places around the world. There are all kinds of ways for you to be involved.

Deacons

The word Deacon is derived from the Greek word for slave or servant. The mission of the Diaconate of FPC Midland is service to the community. The Bible and The Book of Order clearly state that the role of the Deacon is ministry to those in need.

The Diaconate of FPC Midland is comprised of a group of 36-39 ordained church officers. The Diaconate meets monthly to share fellowship, review its recent efforts, plan for upcoming efforts and seek a deeper life in Christ through its individual and collective efforts. The Deacons strive to effectively follow the FPC mission statement of “Loving and leading all people to deeper life in Jesus Christ” by volunteering time at various ministries around our community and church. These ministries are divided into seven main areas:

Feeding the Hungry

  • St. Andrews Presbyterian Mission Food Pantry
  • Meals on Wheels
  • Soup Kitchen
  • Breaking Bread Soup Kitchen

Comforting and Caring for the Sick

Sheltering the Homeless

Mission Trips

God is at work around the world and FPC is privileged to be involved on many levels with this work. One of the ways we connect with our brothers and sisters in Christ throughout the world is by taking mission trips. These trips always have a set purpose and are focused on building relationships among the people with whom we partner. here are a few of the mission trips we frequently take:

Uganda/East Africa

FPC goes to Uganda to work with our African brothers and sisters to share Jesus through personal evangelism, crusades and ministry in schools and prisons.  We thank you for your support of this ministry that has been such a blessing for our church and for so many churches in Africa.
