Michaela Robinson, who now will be singing
with the Dallas Symphony Chorus,
shared her beautiful voice with us
by singing "Give Me The Faith."

 

 

Amazing voice --- thank you, Michaela!

 

Pastor Steve continued his sermon series
on The Prodigal Son!

Pastor Steve drove home
the main points for the day:

God is...

Anxious to love
Quick to forgive
Eager to reconcile

The congregation cannot help but get
involved in the story and the point!

 

The title of Pastor Steve's sermon -- "Coming Home."

 

The service always ends with Acolytes
taking the light out into the world
as we are instructed to do by the Bible!

Minister of Music and Worship Davin Hutchinson

Just a clip, but you will get the idea!

 

Special quilt for a special lady - Nita Bozek - 
was dedicated this Sunday
by our hard working Quilting Team! 

Many of Nita's family were present
to receive the quilt for her.

Knots were tied with love and prayers for Nita!

 

Rev. Joyce Slade conducted Holy Communion
with the help of members of all ages!

 

 


Not sure who enjoyed Janey Fallen's

All were involved and laughing

Davin Hutchinson and the Chancel Choir share a beautiful Offertory 
" The King of Love My Shepherd Is."
This video is just a clip of that presentation.

 

Dr. Larry Jinks brought the sermon
"Now Hiring: Any Applicants?"
and challenged us all with the realization
as to whether we really WANT justice
in God's Grace! 

Are we really READY to get what we deserve?

Sermon was based on Matthew 20:1-16

 

These lovely girls were all smiles
after the service!
