When our FUMCFW Youth Ministries team joined imaginations with our Communications team and CYC director, Erin Ypya, another First Church “first” was created — a fun and memorable virtual youth banquet to honor our 2020 graduating seniors. Here’s how they brought this newest First Church first into being.
When you hear bells (including ours!) pealing throughout Fort Worth next Wednesday, August 5, at 6:15 pm and Saturday at 9:02 pm, it will commemorate and celebrate 75 years of peace between the US and Japan — and our collective desire to create peace now, in our lives today.
If you’ve been feeling a little bit growly, grouchy or whiny (or possibly all three) in these, the hottest days of our Texas summer, Peggy Graff and Friends are back with “Dog Day Duets,” specially curated music selections posted each Wednesday afternoon to offer a brief respite for your soul.
Our partners at the MJM have not stopped working during the pandemic and working harder than ever before with more and more families seeking refuge from the increase of abuse. Sometimes the work they do is in the courtroom; often, the work they do is as simple as creating space for smiles.
In its final meeting of the summer, Rev. Linda McDermott’s Summer Book Club will examine Almost Everything: Notes on Hope, by acclaimed author Anne Lamott, that speaks directly to the heart of this unprecedented time we’re living in. All are invited to join us August 13 at 11:45 am on Zoom for this hope-filled discussion!
We know it’s not a roll of toilet paper, but this is our gift to you during this time to help you stay centered and draw strength and comfort in God’s love and presence. Use this guide to stay connected with one another and to God – and do all you can to make the most of the hidden gifts beneath this worldwide crisis.
