Community in Unity


This fall on Saturday, October 29, 2-6:30 p.m., 10 Duncanville churches will be hosting an event called Community in Unity.  The main goal of the event is to bring together the community — government, church, business, and schools. There will be a storytelling and musical concert featuring Duncanville Pastors, the Duncanville Community Chorus, the Duncanville High School Choir, as well as special guests: The Dallas Police Choir, Canta Tejana Idol Monica Saldivar, ASAINT, and the CFC Band. We will also be accepting non-perishable food and monetary donations for the Duncanville Outreach Ministry (DOM).

10/23/16 – 4th Sunday Youth-Led Worship

Each month the youth at First Presbyterian host the worship service. Because we take seriously the call of God to teach our children, they do much more than simply assisting adults. They take charge of the service by reading Scripture, writing and performing skits, teaching the Children’s Moment, and leading in prayer. This Sunday two of our “Impact Youth Group” (pre-teens) lead a congregational song. Fourth Sunday music is contemporary and includes a band. ROSS SHIPMAN preaches.

This Sunday Dameron Growe and Brandon Johnson join us in presenting, “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother.” This is a sneak preview of our Ten Churches’ Community in Unity Event, on October 29, 2:00-6:30 pm at Armstrong Park. (see details above!)

Join us Sunday! 9:15 for Sunday School and 10:30 for Worship. I can’t wait to see you!

10/16/16 – God’s Broken Heart

Country music artists often sing of “love gone wrong.” Every country song with that theme is filled with emotion of all kinds. Do you ever think of God as emotional? Isaiah assures us that God is indeed emotional. In fact, we can posit that the emotions we feel and act out are expressions of our being made in God’s image. God feels strongly. Isaiah does not hold back. He tells it like he sees it.

This week we see the coming results of God’s people having forsaken God–it’s not a happy picture. But, certainly as we hear the story and reflect on our own lives, we gain great hope that we might do differently. Sunday is POTLUCK SUNDAY. So bring a dish to share, right after worship, which is at 10:30. Sunday School is at 9:15 for all ages. I can’t wait to see you!

READ Isaiah 5 and Luke 13:34 and Luke 19:41-44

10/9/16 – The Promise

When someone says they are going to give you something, do you believe them? Probably it depends on your history with their promise-keeping. Or, it might depend on their reputation. Prophets often see the promises of God, although they may not know the details. That is because a true prophet longs to see God at work so they seek God in prayer, in study of God’s Word, and walking in God’s ways.

Isaiah saw a good outcome for God’s people. But they were not ready for it. This is the “getting ready” period. In fact, that’s exactly where we live today. Come to worship Sunday at 10:30 and we will talk about it. Sunday School for all ages at 9:15. And afterwards, there’s lemonade on the lawn. I can’t wait to see you!
