One of the very meaningful sites we visited in Israel is Caesarea Philippi. It is a place we will visit Sunday in my sermon in the sanctuary services. When Jesus and his disciples were there, tensions had been building and building. It was a dangerous, chaotic and troubled time. We, too, live in a tense, chaotic, and troubled time. In every age, including ours, his voice echoes that question, “Who do you say that I am?” I look forward to exploring Jesus’ important question with you on Sunday.(see more)

Small Gifts. Big Difference.
Every Sunday in August | 30 minutes before each serviceHave you ever wondered what it would be like to sing in the choir? Do you enjoy singing, even if it’s only in the shower or along with the radio or your favorite CD? We invite you to join us for MorningSong, a unique summertime choir experience that extends the entire month of August – no experience required! We will meet every Sunday morning in August, 30 minutes before each service to learn a piece of music and then lead worship in song. It’s really that simple. And the best part: it’s family friendly — kids and grandkids welcome! Come and enjoy the view and experience only available from the choir loft. For more information, contact Taylor Davis (email@example.com) 817/339-5074.

Caring + Compassion = Can Do!Mission and Outreach Ministries — the fourth pillar of our Church — are tangible results of our congregation’s caring, compassionate “can-do” attitude. Our members understand that Christian faith is best reflected in acts of love and concern, exemplified in the early days by distribution of supplies out of the back of a pick-up truck and later through the construction and operation of our Mission building where today volunteers help literally thousands of individuals and families in need.
We need you to offer your service to God and others through volunteer opportunities at FUMCFW. This month we need:
- Substitute Van Driver to Help Pick Up Food Donations for FSMM
- Tuesday Re-stocking Food Pantry at FSMM
- Ushers for Traditional Worship Service
- Congregational Care Ministers (CCMs)
As it turns out, there are lots of ways to be privy to the Kingdom of God, to be a vehicle of joy or curiosity — or a connection to hope. To experience this firsthand, I think, must surely begin with getting out of our own way so that we can find God in the way. I think sometimes we may have to get a little bit lost in order to be found — and to find God. Join us this Sunday in eleven:eleven as we continue our “Life – the Exquisite Risk” series by looking at a second way to connect more deeply with God: the path of becoming “lost in wonder, love and praise.”(see more)
