After 141 years of ministry, Handley UMC has voted to close its doors. Our congregation was invited to partner with the Annual Conference and use the Handley campus to develop a new style and type of ministry for the people in that community. The primary goal of this new ministry opportunity is to continue having a United Methodist presence in the Handley area of Fort Worth. However, since the congregation has faced some significant challenges over the last several years, this new ministry will not just be a continuation of what has been happening. Rather, there will be an intentionality of having a multiethnic congregation and ministry within the Handley community. That goal will take creativity and hard work but it can be done and will be a blessing to many.
