I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.
FMC’s Caring Ministry is dedicated to helping those who are going through difficult times in their lives. We are called to love, to bear one another’s burdens, to comfort and care in times of need; and there are many groups in our church who have answered this call. Will you be one of them? Find out how!
Our grief and cancer support groups formed in the church with the realization that community makes a difference when facing difficulties. When we share our struggles, we realize that we don’t face our problems in isolation and we become more aware of the presence of God.
Sometimes all you need is that little something extra; whether it’s a much-needed piece of medical equipment or a home-cooked meal, members in our congregation have generously donated their time to provide the simple things that make difficult circumstances a little more bearable.

Our Stephen Ministry program equip and empower lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting. Stephen Ministers have gone through an extensive training to help them walk alongside those going through difficult situations, such as a death of a spouse, a challenging medical condition, or a life changing decision making process. They are not counselors or pastors, but they are a great listening ear. If you or someone you know might benefit from a Stephen Minister, please contact Rev. Janet Stilwell at or 936-756-3395, ext. 136.
We believe in the power of the Holy Spirit to act in and through our difficulties. Our prayer groups provide intercession and hands on prayer for those who are seeking relief or direction.
"O Lord, give me ears to hear as you hear, discernment to understand others as you understand, and fitting words of wisdom for those I encounter today. May I speak life, hope, and love instead of suspicion, judgment, and criticism. Let the words of my mouth honor you. Amen. "
