What are your future plans? When I retire I am going to move to Aruba. When I grow up I’m going to be a doctor. When I get married I am going to live in a big house and have eight children… What is your dream? Does that dream include your faith?
Jacob was moving into his future, but he would only be there a little while, he said. He saw a future which may seem precipitous to some. But to others it is a great blessing because it is the future that God provides. As we travel this road of faith we find greater plans than Aruba, or being someone successful, or having many possessions. What could be better? We’ll talk about it Sunday. We welcome our new Youth Director, JEFF THORPE. Also, we continue to take donations for FESTIVAL OF HOPE. Sunday School at 9:15 and worship at 10:30.

Please bring CANNED GOODS and MONETARY DONATIONS FOR DUNCANVILLE OUTREACH MINISTRY! Donations are tax deductible.
Last year’s event was such a success, we’re doing it again! Join the Best Southwest community at the Festival of Hope, Saturday, October 18, 3 to 7:30pm at Duncanville’s Armstrong Park. This free event hopes to draw the community together in raising $55,000 in cash or food donations, all of which will go directly to Duncanville Outreach Ministry.
The event will feature renowned author and storyteller Toni Simmons. Toni is sure to grab our attention, along with other local storytellers, telling stories about “coming home,” reunion, reconciliation, and belonging. The stories show some different and creative ways of resolving conflict in the best interest of all involved. Other activities include: raffles (maybe you’ll win the airline tickets!), food booths, vendors, music, games, and bounce houses for the kids. The Duncanville High School choir, (Director Ty Shaw), performs, along with the Duncanville Community Chorus, (Director Matthew Lee), with featured soloist Nyadia Thorpe. Nyadia directs the Children’s Community Chorus which also performs. Performing bands are ASAINT, aka Brockne Jones, and the Centro Familiar Cristiano Band.
The non-profit Duncanville Outreach Ministry provides local emergency assistance for Duncanville residents and is funded by community donations. Non-perishable food items will be collected at the event. Fill up a bag of canned goods and bring it along when you join us for a time of community fun benefiting a good cause.
