The Next Phase
For those of you who attend The Fort Ministry in person, you know what a long journey it has been over the last year with all of the social distancing restrictions. The Pastor and Staff have taken the health recommendations very seriously and have followed each step of the guidelines put forth by our Governor and local authorities throughout the whole ordeal.
Now, with the decrease in COVID cases in our state and the Mills community, along with the growing number of vaccinations being distributed, we are relaxing the mask requirement from mandatory to recommended. We still recommend that you wear a mask due to the high estimates of asymptotic or pre-symptomatic spread, and we still ask that you follow official guidance and remain home if you are not feeling well.
We love our church family and want to create a space where we can comfortably meet and stay safe at the same time, so please exercise good judgement concerning your neighbors’ heath when removing your mask.
We can't wait to see you!

We asked and you delivered!
What joy it is to see the overwhelming response we've had to the monthly needs. We have been blessed by your generosity!
We now have enough toliet tissue, paper towels and tissues to last us a while. We would still happily receive donations of napkins and plastic utensils.
Thank you for helping us meet the needs of The Fort Ministry!
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in Me (abide) and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing.” James 15:5
Dear God, Help me to stay connected and abide in You. Help me to grow into a strong branch that supports others and is fruitful and never breaks it’s life sustaining connection to the vine. May it be evident to all that I am connected to You God! I ask this in Jesus name Amen.
