Twister_SQPicking Up the Pieces After East Texas Twisters

Just One Way Our Early Response Teams Help Others Face Disaster

On April 29, a typical Saturday in East Texas was turned upside down by the end of the night. The first and last dance moves at the Edgewood High School prom were duck and cover, and one woman took an emergency exit toward shelter on her drive home from a friend’s baby shower. Read more.

Bring your lunch at 11:30 am — or dinner at 5:30 pm — and we’ll watch together this informative and entertaining DVD featuring international dementia care pioneer Teepa Snow. This session will help us to understand more about the journey of dementia for those who have it and those who love them. It is a way to begin equipping ourselves to provide support for those in our faith community facing the Journey of Dementia. Read more.

Lance Marshall752Buy This Bible

Rev. Lance Marshall

Okay, I’ll admit that title is clickbait, I’m not going to tell you exactly which Bible to buy, but people frequently ask me for advice when deciding what kind of Bible to purchase.

kat-bair75VBS and the Growth-Curve of Goodness

Kat Bair

I arrived for my first day of work at FUMC Fort Worth at 8:45 am on July 11, 2016. By 9:00 am on July 11th, 2016, I was wearing a hula skirt and singing in front of 700 VBS participants. This job has continued in that general trajectory ever since. Read more.


Nancy Fisher75Thank You for the Hero Training

Nancy Fisher

This week our church is full of young heroes – all ages, all sizes. One thing that they have in common is that they are finding their strength and secret powers through God! I don’t know about you but I feel really, really good about having these heroes-in-training around First Church. Read more.


Charme75Not Throwing Away Her Shot

The answer comes back from Hamilton “I’m not throwing away my shot!” The irony is wonderful. Read more.
