Awaken: March 29th

A great night last night!  We had some of that great coffee with the added bonus of some delicious tiny little bagel bites (dunk at your own risk).  We welcomed Chris Roberts and Sam Dobbin last night to the awaken band.  We began our worship with several songs.  We continued our series on Prayer.  This week we took a look at the Lords Prayer.  We did a prayer station cycle where at each station we took a part of the Lords Prayer and read it and then did something.  We took a deeper look at the Lords Prayer and even wrote some of our own prayers.  Check out the pictures of some of the prayers along with the prayer board below.  After some prayer time and meditation on the Lords Prayer we sang a couple of more songs and closed our worship.  Next week The Judge (Matt Strom) will be leading us in the conversation on prayer.  Come on out and bring a friend.

Meadowbrook Work Mission – New Roof!

OK, we removed the old roof off the garage, now we have to put a new roof on!  Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 4.  We will meet at 8am at 409 S. Haynes to put a new roof on a detached garage.  This is a big project that will take all day so we need lots of help.  If you can’t be there all day, come help for as long as you can.  Also, there is some final clean-up to be done, so call Jeff Roper (817-572-1652) if you can help with clean-up on Friday, April 3.

Awaken: March 22nd

We had a great night at Awaken last night.  Mel Strom made up a delicious tray of cheese and meats for all and we had some new coffee.  We began our worship with a couple of songs.  We went acoustic last night.  After a few songs Kyle Howton continued our series on prayer.  Kyle led the conversation in talking about the word Amen.  We talked about the meaning, why we use it, and all the times that we use it.  We took some time to have a meditation prayer on the word “Amen”.  We then closed our evening with song.  We welcomed Rev. Kent Seuser from the Wesley Foundation at the University of Texas as Arlington last night at Awaken.  Rev. Seuser came to worship with us last night.  You can check out the UTA Wesley Foundation here or here.

We will have the prayer board up later this afternoon, so check back later to see it.

Next week we will welcome a new drummer and a new bass player for Awaken.  Sam Dobbin will be playing the drums with us.  Chris Roberts will be playing the bass with us.  Come out next week to welcome them and worship with us!  Bring a friend with you.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Awaken: March 15th

This past Sunday at Awaken we had a delightful time.  We celebrated with Jerry and Kevyn.  Sunday was their last time to be at Awaken before they leave.  They have already shipped off to basic training for the United States Coast Guard as you are reading this post. Jerry and Kevyn have added so much to Awaken and we are thankful that they could share their talents with us!  Keep both of them in your prayers as they are on this new journey.  We began our worship with several songs.  We continued our series on prayer with a service of prayer.  We had several different prayer stations set up around the room for people to use.  We were still, we prayed for the People of the Presbyterian Night Shelter as we made sandwiches, we prayed special prayers for Jerry and Kevyn, we prayed for people close to us and those who will be close to us in the future, we prayed for Fort Worth current events, we said prayers of hope, and we prayed for our enemies.  We then sang several more songs to close our worship service.

It was great to have the Young Adults from St. John the Apostle United Methodist Church in Arlington come and worship with us!  It was great to meet you all and see you again!  Come back any time!
