I’m New Here
Bishop Mike Lowry, episcopal leader of the Central Texas Conference of The United Methodist Church, has announced that Rev. Philip Rhodes will be appointed as the Superintendent of the East District Area of the Central Texas Conference effective July 1. In the coming months we will offer ways to honor Rev. Philip Rhodes for his ministry to FUMC Hurst. We hope you will hold the church, Philip, our Staff Parish Relations Committee, and the Central Texas Conference Cabinet in your prayers as they continue to discern the next Senior Pastor of FUMC Hurst.

In the season of Lent, we’re reminded that, again and again, suffering and brokenness find us. We doubt again, we lament again, we mess up again. Again and again, the story of Jesus on the cross repeats—every time lives are taken unjustly, every time the powerful choose corruption and violence, every time individuals forget how to love. With exacerbation we exclaim, “Again?! How long, O God?” And yet, in the midst of the motion blur chaos of our lives, God offers a sacred refrain: “I choose you, I love you, I will lead you to repair.” Again and again, God breaks the cycle and offers us a new way forward.
