The 32-member Commission on a Way Forward, led by Commission moderators Bishop David Yemba, Bishop Sandra Steiner Ball, and Bishop Ken Carter, will meet again this weekend in Irving, Texas. Our own Rev. Casey Orr, Associate Pastor of Discipleship, is one of the two deacons named by the Council of Bishops to serve on the Commission. Stay tuned for new updates following this latest meeting.
Meanwhile, our annual and central conferences will find their own creative ways to participate in the Praying Our Way Forward initiative. Bishop Lowry, resident bishop of the Central Texas Conference of The United Methodist Church / Fort Worth Episcopal Area, has asked each church in our conference to take a 15-minute period of time to pray. FUMCFW will have our prayer time on Sunday, January 28, at 12:30 pm in Leonard Memorial Chapel. Plus, smaller groups of Sunday School classes, UMW Circles, committees, small groups, and others are welcome to set their own times to pray as well.

Please join us in prayer to help our church to find a way forward.
