Mansfield's First United Methodist Church put on a community picnic as part of its bicentennial celebration. In previous years, the community picnic was held elsewhere, but according to Senior Pastor Kent Joy, the annual picnic was relocated to the gazebo downtown in Mansfield's city square to interact more with the community.

"We're said to be a light in the world, and if we take our picnic and go elsewhere and nobody sees us but ourselves, we're not much of a light," said Joy. "I think it's important we make a witness here, in our own community right where the church is. It's a way to get folks from the congregation and the community to inter-mingle a little bit more."

The picnic was preceded by a short church service. Picnic offerings included cupcakes, brownies, deviled eggs, pasta, and more. The church's next major event takes place on October 11th - an organ recital as performed by a very skilled member of the congregation.
