Welcome Home7.6 YOUTH CHOIR WELCOME HOME CONCERT

6:00 – 7:00 pm | Wesley Hall Refreshments afterwards

The Youth Choir is headed to New Mexico June 30 through July 6 for their annual Choir Tour. They will perform at various churches, nursing homes, and children’s facilities, as well as engage in various community service projects. Plan to join us in welcoming them home as they share their songs and stories from the road!


LA TRINIDAD UMC NEEDS OUR HELP

This special request came from our district office. La Trinidad (and Diamond Hill ministries) have been anticipating a full-time appointment for close to one year now and are excited to know that they now have an appointment with Rev. Samuel Macias. Rev. Macias, his wife Saby, and their three girls will move into the parsonage close to Diamond — a house that is mostly empty. The family will only be able to bring clothing and maybe one or two personal items with them.

Every day, each one of us builds something. A family. A career. A reputation. A life. Built upon our hopes and dreams, reflecting our values and ideals, shaped by our words and deeds. A hundred years from now, will the things that mattered to us still matter? Will the causes that stirred our hearts still incite passion? Will the purposes we lived for live on in others? When all is said and done, what do we leave behind? Through First Methodist Church of Fort Worth Foundation, you can make certain your gifts not only benefit others today, but countless generations in the future. The Foundation can help you build a legacy of compassion, service and devotion. To learn more go to www.fmcfoundation.org.
