"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it" (John 1:1-4, KJV).
The Following is Our December PLC Schedule:
  • DECEMBER 21 - Executive Board Meeting
  • DECEMBER 28 - No Pastors/Leaders Conference - Christmas Holiday Week

Due to the increase of COVID-19 cases in Dallas County, we have decided to not have the “in person” option for our Monday lunch meetings between now and the end of the year. The Pastors/Leaders Conference and the Executive Board meetings will be entirely on Zoom. The meeting time for these Monday meetings during Nov/Dec will move to 11:00 a.m. With our new bylaws, our Executive Board can conduct our business electronically.
