The Gift of Belonging

By April 20, 2018

Making the decision to join a church is one of those things that can happen in a moment — or it can be a lingering idea just waiting for the right impetus to take that life-changing step. Over the past several months we have been especially blessed with an increase in visitors at our worship services.

Because so many of our recent visitors have indicated that they are repeat visitors — and some have also expressed an interest in joining the church — we’ve decided that this would be a great time to provide a special opportunity to join First Church together as a group in a Sunday afternoon program we’re calling First We Join!

In addition to personally contacting and inviting those who have expressed this specific interest to us directly, we also want to open up this opportunity to anyone who has been considering making First United Methodist Church of Fort Worth their church home.

If you’d like to know more about this special “in-gathering” of our newest members, please feel free to contact Dr. Lamar Smith ( | 817-339-3886). However, there is no need to make prior arrangements to join the church with this group. Just come as you are — and bring the kids! The First We Join group process of joining the church will take no more than 30 minutes, and during this time, children will be invited into the nearby Library for a book-reading and a cookie. Afterwards, you and your whole family are welcome to stay to visit and make connections with your new church family!
