ACCESS is a new Sunday evening worship experience that will start on April 3, 2016 in Aldersgate. ACCESS will be like nothing we’ve ever done before here at FUMCD. ACCESS will begin at 5:30pm each Sunday night starting in April. It will be a very casual and authentic worship experience where you can find guest preachers, testimonies, diverse worship music and delicious homemade sweet treats!
We hope you will join us on April 3rd for this exciting new venture!
CASA Quilters needs your help! There will be a quilt/blanket collection on March 20th. These can be made by quilting, crocheting, knitting, tying fleece fabric, or crocheting around the edge of fleece. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is an organization of volunteers appointed by judges to advocate for the children who are in foster care. Dallas CASA is continually adding volunteers to serve more children. The volunteers often take one of our “Especially Made For You!” quilts/blankets when they first meet the children. This provides a great introduction along with letting the children know that someone cares. We have provided these comfort quilts/blankets to only 10% of the children they serve, so are working hard to make that percentage higher. Bring your donation to the church narthex on March 20th and make sure one of the CASA Quilters at the display knows about your donation, so it can be counted. Your donation will be appreciated by the CASA Quilters and help a child who is going through a difficult time.

UMCOR Early Response Training Class
Dr. Frank Alegria and the Mission Committee are inviting interested members of our congregation to register for an UMCOR Early Response Training Class to be held at our church. The date of the class is April 23, 2016. The event will take place in Aldersgate Hall. Time is 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Lunch, snacks, tea, coffee, and water will be served.
Since the Christmas tornadoes, I think we all are conscience of the fact that it really can happen in our area! Being an Early Responder equips us to assist survivors of natural disasters.
