Dear Friends,

This Sunday is Resurrection Day. It is Easter. It is the day that we celebrate what happened on the first day of the week nearly two thousand years ago. Sunday we will see that the table is a place of resurrection and new life. It is a place of remembering and encountering the Risen Christ. It is a place where, in the simple act of breaking bread, Christ is made known to us — as the Risen Christ was made known to two of his followers in Emmaus when they sat down at the table and he broke the bread.

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.
