What is the Christmas Offering?
The Christmas Offering is an opportunity for FWC to make a tangible impact in the lives of many both within our community and also outside of it. The Christmas Offering targets specific needs and opportunities where we as a church can be a blessing to those in need.
Smithville Schools CarePortal
Smithville Schools CarePortal: CarePortal allows the school to communicate to local churches about the needs that families within the school have in a confidential way. These needs would likely go unmet without the CarePortal. But there is a fee associated for the school to have access to CarePortal. This offering will cover most of that need.
Smithville Benevolence Ministries
On a monthly basis individuals and families contact the church in need of assistance. Some we can help, others we must refer somewhere else. Some of you already give to help this area of ministry but we would like to expand the funds that we have to offer. These funds will help meet CarePortal needs, temporary lodging, meals, gas, utility bills and other needs.
FWC A/V Upgrades
This year we upgraded our internet service to help with the quality of our livestream but discovered the computer running the livestream is now the chokepoint severely limiting our ability to host a viable, quality stream of FWC services. This new computer, amongst other needed upgrades, would significantly increase the quality we could provide to those who cannot join us in person.
When are services?Weekend services occur on Sunday mornings at 10AM and last for 90 minutes. We are currently meeting in person and online. You are welcome to join us for either one! Go ahead and let us know you are coming by Planning Your Experience. If you miss the live stream it will be available on Facebook and YouTube to watch on-demand.
Where are you located?We are conveniently located off US Highway 169 in Smithville MO just north of the intersection with MO 92. You can access us from 169 using Stonebridge Lane (by O'Reilly's Auto Parts), from 92 by turning north on Commercial Ave, or from Commercial Ave right across from Smithville Public Schools main campus.
What should I wear?We are a casual, come as you are, type church. We have a wide variety of clothing represented, everything from shorts and t-shirts to dress pants and button ups. So, come as you are!
What about my kids?We have a safe, fun, clean, and interactive environment for every child no matter the age! There is a staffed nursery during Sunday services & Wednesday night small groups for children ages 6 weeks-3 years. At this time FWC Kids Pre-K (3-5yrs) is meeting with FWC Kids School age (K-5th grade) on Sundays during the worship service. On Wednesday nights we offer Small Groups for kids of all ages as well.
