This past Wednesday evening Choral Union, along with our friends from the Fort Worth Symphony, rehearsed together for two hours in preparation for this Sunday’s World Communion service. The two groups worked seamlessly as they presented their talents in this tremendous gathering. Mozart’s “Coronation Mass” will be presented to us at the 11:00 am service on Sunday, October 2. If Wednesday’s rehearsal is any indication of what can be expected, then you will not want to miss this presentation. Our soloists are members of Choral Union.

I am honored to be a board member of the Greater Dallas Handbell Association (GDHA) serving as Festival Chair, and over the past two years I have met and worked with some of the finest musicians and directors in the DFW area. The GDHA recently held its annual Fall Workshop at FUMCFW. The day before the workshop, thousands of bells donated from various churches were set up, transforming six of our Sunday School classrooms on the third floor into workshop classrooms.

About 160 people from over 30 churches in the DFW area attended the all-day workshop, which included interest sessions for beginning ringers (“Rookie Ringers”), seasoned ringers, and directors of handbell ensembles. Click here to continue reading.

“Hello, you’ve reached [establishment name redacted].”

“Hi, yes, I would like to make a reservation for Saturday night.”

“Sure, ma’am, for how many and at what time?”

“For 30, and what’s your availability around midnight?”

These are the kind of phone calls that define my Tuesday mornings. Youth ministry is a strange profession. Click here to continue reading.

Sunday, October 2 | 9:00 am – 1:00 pm | FUMCFW Garden

On Sunday, October 2, between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm in the Garden and on Fifth Street, we will have an opportunity to support our Kenya and Costa Rica mission teams at our Mission Teams Ministry Fair. This year we’ll amp up the fun with the addition of two food trucks (bring cash!) on Fifth Street. Please join us immediately following the 11:00 am service for a festive and delicious “lunch and learn” community experience you’ll want to share with friends, neighbors, and co-workers. All are welcome!

To acquaint you once again with the work of these two groups, there will be information available, people on hand to share their stories, and photographs of both Kenya and Costa Rica mission work to show you the good our faith community is doing in these two very special places. Even if you don’t personally travel to take part in these endeavors, you can be a part of this special transformative work through your gifts and sponsorship support for each team’s specific needs.

See you at the Fair!

healthy-plate-discipleship_introduction_hsIntroducing Healthy Plate Discipleship

An Exciting New Vision for the Future of Our Church

As disciples, we are devoted followers of Jesus Christ, committed to practices that will encourage growth in faith. Discipleship is the process of being shaped by the Holy Spirit through spiritual practices to become more like Jesus.

The Healthy Plate Discipleship framework will use a variety of practices to help you more faithfully follow Jesus Christ. Some will comfort you, some will challenge you, and all will completely nourish you. Your plate may be too full or too empty, and we want to help you have a well-balanced experience when it comes to your life of faith.

Join us in all Sunday worship services from October 9 – November 13 for a sermon series that will introduce our new Healthy Plate Discipleship program to you and your family. Then on Sunday, November 13, we will kick off our new experience with a churchwide celebration to help you get started.

It’s good stuff for the whole family. Watch your email for exciting details, coming soon!

spectrum-concert-series16_hsThe Spectrum of Chamber Music

The Spectrum, Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra’s professional chamber music ensemble, is comprised of some of the finest musicians in the DFW area. Recently the City even declared a “Spectrum Chamber Music Day” in honor of The Spectrum as the longest continuously running chamber music series in Fort Worth. Each year The Spectrum partners with our church to provide free performances open to the Fort Worth community and surrounding areas. This season marks 20 years of The Spectrum concerts at FUMCFW, and we can’t wait to hear the outstanding lineup of repertoire sure to entertain, educate, and inspire audiences of all ages!

Kathryn Perry and Dan Sigale are the new Co-Directors of The Spectrum Chamber Music Society. Kathryn, who is a violinist for the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, says that she is honored to take over this “labor of love.” She describes our Spectrum Concert Series as a chance to hear Fort Worth musicians and their friends perform classical music that they love — up close and in person (thanks to the intimate setting of our Leonard Memorial Chapel). The Spectrum presents various groups playing music from a wide variety of composers. The October concert will feature a passacaglia for violin and double bass, a sonata for violin and cello, and a string quintet.

Please join us on Monday, October 10, from 7:00 – 9:00 pm in the Chapel for the first Spectrum concert of this special 20th anniversary season. Afterward, take advantage of the opportunity to meet and visit with the performers and enjoy refreshments during a reception in Wesley Hall. Kathryn Perry says that our church community offers The Spectrum such a beautiful visual and acoustic space to play and hear music for a congregation that treasures it, and she is very excited to also offer this community the chance to get to know these incredible Fort Worth musicians. Come and enjoy The Spectrum of chamber music here at FUMCFW. Click here to learn more.

divorce-rebuilding-when-your-relationsip-ends_hsDivorce: Rebuilding When Your Relationship Ends

October 12 – November 16
Wednesdays | 6:00 – 7:30 pm
Foundation Building, 2nd Floor
Led by Rev. Phyllis Barren
Registration required | Book available for $15

Divorce is one of the most difficult experiences that most people will ever face. Even the most amicable of divorces can create intense emotional and psychological issues which may have lasting effects if they are not given attention. The good news is that there is help for facing the challenges that divorce brings. This six-week series will use the book “Rebuilding When Your Relationship Ends,” featuring divorce process rebuilding blocks, a proven 19-step process for putting one’s life back together after divorce. This widely used approach to divorce recovery makes the process healthier and less traumatic for those who are going through a divorce. The focus will be on gaining insights into facing the experience of divorce and offering time for participants to process their current experience in a supportive setting. Rev. Phyllis Barren is an ordained United Methodist minister who also holds a Masters in Psychology and is an LPC-I. This series is free and open to members and non-members of FUMCFW. If you would like a copy of the book, you may purchase it in advance in the Main Office or at the first class. For more information, contact Rev. Phyllis Barren (pbarren@myfumc.org) at 817-339-5082. To register, contact Marianne Wilson (mwilson@myfumc.org) at 817-339-5071.
