MINISTERS' MESSAGE FROM AARON
This is a big moment in the life of our church. Many of you joined us this past weekend as we threw a party to launch our Love First campaign. Over 600 of you celebrated what our church has been able to accomplish thus far and what is coming in the next chapter of our lives together. The Love First campaign is how we will fund the vision that our congregation has come up with over the past two years, and it is a big vision!
FROM SELMA TO STONEWALL
The timing couldn’t be better for a film about the power of protest! Interweave is a sponsor of the Dallas premiere of From Selma to Stonewall. About the conflicts at the heart of the black and LGBT civil rights movements...
OUR CARING COMMUNITY

Members Georgie and Leo Grossman remain in our thoughts and prayers as they enter month six of their time in Saudi Arabia.

We hold close Gerry and Michelle Perkus as Gerry continues in at-home hospice, and we keep in our prayers Jennifer Rutherford's uncle John Rutherford, who is critically ill and hospitalized.
