United Methodist Women
The United Methodist Women from FUMCD welcomed UMW National Board representative, Cindy Rives and her husband Chuck, who spoke about their 2-day immersion experiences with Courts & Ports to the southern border of Texas. On their trips (they have been on 3), they observed proceedings in federal criminal court and observed immigration attorneys working with shackled detainees who await their fate. They also spoke with policy experts working on the border and spent time with individuals who have pending asylum cases. They even went into Mexico and spoke with asylum seekers camped out hoping to be allowed to cross into Texas. We each gained insight into this program supported by Texas Impact. If you are interested in knowing more about the Courts & Ports trip, or might like to participate please contact Natalie Garry (214-274-3116).
Our UMW encourages you to read Response magazine Sept/Oct 2019 issue (p. 37) regarding the UMW demands to end child detention and family separation at the US border and how YOU can make a difference.
The youth are having a lock in on Saturday, October 12. We have invited the youth from First Christian to join us. Friends are welcome and encouraged but they MUST pre-register and have a signed permission slip so that we are sure we have enough transportation. The cost is whatever money you think you will need for dinner at Whataburger. Our actual start time is yet to be determined but it will likely be around 5p.m. We will all attend Sunday School and worship together on October 13.

Group members will come together and take turns answering the same few questions each week (such as, “Share your week briefly from a spiritual respect.”) At the end of each meeting, we will pray for one another. The process will serve help us grow together as a community and encourage us as individuals to think about our daily lives from a spiritual perspective.
The group will meets for approximately one hour. Due to the nature of the group, participation is capped at around 10 people. Please contact email@example.com
