Sometimes life serves up something we did not order.
It may be a pleasant surprise: Twins! You won! A promotion!
Sometimes life serves up something we did not order.
It may bad news: I’m sorry, the test results are positive. You’re being laid off. It was a bad investment.
Jesus gathered his disciples together for the Passover meal and part of what he gave them that evening was NOT what they ordered.

5.4 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF MEALS ON WHEELS
On Sunday, May 4, we’ll celebrate a very special ministry moment honoring the 40th anniversary of Meals on Wheels, Inc. of Tarrant County, with an offering envelope and online donation opportunity in recognition of four decades of the great work of this organization in our community. As you may know, our church was one of the founding churches of Meals On Wheels Inc. of Tarrant County, and many of our church members including Hope Slayden, Tillie Cross, June Gilmore, Nelda Gathings and Louise Carvey were instrumental in getting this important service started here in Fort Worth. Even today, our United Methodist Women still drive a route on the Southside and many members of our church have been recipients of these meals.
