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.

Do you like happy-ever-after stories? Surprise endings (as long as they are happy, right!)? When you go through a great ordeal, isn’t it wonderful to see the light at the end of the tunnel! That happened for the family of Joseph. I am sure you have had such an experience, too. The Bible often reflects common realities and despite the years that have passed, its stories are exceedingly relevant.
Speaking of relevant stories, the FESTIVAL OF HOPE is NEXT SATURDAY, October 18. The storytellers are prepared. The choir has become a COMMUNITY CHORUS and FPCD sponsors a new DUNCANVILLE CHILDREN’S CHORUS. Many people from Duncanville are involved in the Festival who were not involved last year. That is a major plus for Duncanville. Your prayers and hard work have been honored by God. It is a surprise ending, and as we support DUNCANVILLE OUTREACH MINISTRY, may this become not just a happy-ever-after story, but one of ongoing good for the people in this city. FPCD, YOU are a blessing to Duncanville. Tomorrow in worship, DUB GUTHRIE and the youth tell one of the Festival stories. Sunday School at 9:15, worship at 10:30. SEE YOU THERE!
