Meadowbrook United Methodist Church
3900 Meadowbrook Dr., Fort Worth, TX 76103
Host & Speaker
Rev. Ginger Watson
Rev. Watson serves Polytechnic UMC and Meadowbrook UMC on the East side of Fort Worth. Prior to answering her call to ministry she was a labor lawyer in New York and Seattle. For many years she was senior labor negotiator for the City of Seattle, and then became Human Resources Director of the Seattle Fire Department. Social justice and working for peace are now cornerstones of her ministry.
Ginger lives with her husband Steve and two daughters, Lola (12) and Ruby (10). In 2014, they won the “Great Fort Worth Green-off” to be named the greenest family in the city. Stewardship of the earth is an important value for Ginger and her family, and they continue to look for ways to care for God’s creation together.
When General Gordon Granger came to deliver the news of emancipation to the slaves in Galveston, TX, most were still working in the fields. He nailed General Order No. 3 to the door post of Reedy Chapel AME Church so that all who came there would know and spread the news.
Today the church is still a central part of the Juneteenth Celebration because worship is a grateful expression of freedom and the first reaction when the prayers of many generations was answered. In remembrance of that first freed man’s church service, we established the Lillian Bush Memorial Juneteenth Ecumenical Breakfast of Prayer Service to honor the lives of all people, no matter their race or denomination, who gave of themselves for the cause of liberty.
