“A hush fell over the room as six-foot-ten former NBA player Derrick Battie ducked to walk through the door. “Can I get everyone’s attention,” said a self-driven high school sophomore as she stood at the front of the room, the other kids finishing the last of the pizza.”
“I’ve been a member of First Presbyterian Church since 1950, when my father was transferred to Dallas. We lived in Shreveport at the time and a local minister suggested we try several churches in the Dallas area, but he predicted we would end up at First Presbyterian Church. We thought, ‘How’d he know?’”
On June 1, 2018, women from church's around the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex gathered at First Presbyterian Church of Dallas for fellowship and celebration. Church Women United is a racially, culturally, theologically inclusive Christian women’s movement, celebrating unity in diversity and working for a world of peace and justice.
I believe that God is at work in the fellowship that has occurred while sitting in the rapids or sitting in a lawn chair “just visitin’.” Just being in that “thin place” together has fortified the community that returns to Big-D to serve and worship under the beautiful dome in the heart of the city.
