Who we are!
Welcome to the Family of The Myakka Family Worship Center! Our doors are open wide to everyone and our hearts are shut to no one seeking to find a safe place for spiritual growth and encouraging fellowship.
What guests usually notice first about MFWC is the real presence of God in our worship services. When we gather together to worship, these times are marked with joyful worship, warm fellowship and relevant, expository teaching from His Word – a combination that promises to touch the heart and lift the soul.
A closer look will reveal that you are surrounded by people just like you – people who are filled with hopes and fears, joys and sorrows, strengths and weaknesses. The common thread is that we all have come expecting to draw nearer to God and by this we can be Growing in Christ to Grow Others.
Myakka Family Worship Center began in 2001. Pastor Lynn and Mrs. Kathy Howell envisioned a place where people can come and worship God no matter their denomination. Since the first meeting held in the Community Center building on February 18th, 2001; the MFWC has been a place where anyone can come to worship God just as they are. We believe when you give God your whole heart He can change you from the inside out.
Israel moved when God moved. They followed the cloud of God's presence in the wilderness. We, at the MFWC are moving in the presence of Almighty God. His Holy Spirit is continually doing a fresh work in our congregation, our ministries, and our families.
Just as God took the children of Israel on a journey, we are moving and growing as the Holy Spirit leads us into different seasons; yet always within the boundaries of God's unchangeable Word and undying love.
