Almost ten years ago, FUMCFW assisted in the formation of our Methodist Justice Ministry (MJM) led by Rev. Brooks Harrington to protect indigent women and children from domestic violence, neglect, and abuse. As we celebrate this special anniversary, I lift up not only this ministry, but all who support it. While court and legal work comprise a major part of what our hardworking MJM does to change the lives and futures of those it serves, it also provides other life-changing support for these women and children throughout the process. Safe housing, transportation, food, education, and job search assistance often accompanies the prayer and emotional support infusing this ministry. And, although the MJM staff raises its own funding to support its operations and salaries, our church operating budget provides office space, utilities, and administration to assist and support this vital work. With your gifts to our church, you are part of this life-transforming ministry with Fort Worth area families in need — and we celebrate you!
