Missions - Partnerships: Local & Global
Circles of Christ
Since 2019, Circles of Christ is a covenant partnership agreement between Mount Moriah Missionary Baptist Church and First Presbyterian Church, Fort Worth whose purpose is to amplify our love of God and our love of neighbor (Matthew 22.34-40) through a shared partnership of worship, service, fellowship and education.
- Unite spiritually and culturally and celebrate the richness of our diversity
- Share our experiences and deepen our faith
- Participate in social activism/advocacy and ministries of Christian compassion and love
- Learn, explore, and respect our commonalities and differences
- Engage all generations of our congregations in our partnership and increase awareness of the critical issues in our community
Our hope is that through this partnership we will build and maintain mutual relationships that strengthen our faith and witness to our community the love, peace, reconciliation, and justice of our Lord. We partner together both by inviting one another to share in existing ministries of our congregations AND through new engagements specifically designed to enhance and deepen our dialogue about racial injustices and shared solidarity. We covenant to have opportunities for engagement at least monthly and have monthly steering committee meetings to enrich our partnership.
Since 2015, our congregation has enjoyed a partnership with two congregations and one mission church in Cuba through the Cuba Partner Network of the PCUSA and the Presbyterian Reformed Church in Cuba. Church members have traveled multiple times to visit Resurrection Church in Sebanilla and Good Shepherd Church in Union de Reyes and its mission church in Cidra. Cuban pastors have also visited FPC. It is a vibrant partnership whose purpose is to affirm the unity we have in Jesus Christ; above all else, we are the body of Christ.
