“It is Christmas, and we revel in the mystery of God-with-us, Emmanuel. This is a season of mystery and wonder, of love and light, of hope for the future. That night in Bethlehem, God did not come to save us in the way many imagined, but the Christ child brought hope.”
PW women are invited on Friday, December 7 at 10 a.m. at the Villages of Dallas (formerly Grace Presbyterian Village) for the annual tree trimming party. We need women to trim tree in the assisted living area and furnish refreshments for residents and staff. Click here for more information.

Fa-la-la-la-la… Do you love to sing Christmas carols? Come join us as we take some Christmas cheer to our members who are homebound after worship on Dec. 9, 12:45-3:30 p.m. It doesn't matter if you're a great singer or not! We just want your enthusiasm and holiday spirit! You are welcome to have a quick lunch in Byrd Hall and then meet in the Welcome Center at 12:45 to board a church van for our adventure. You may also carpool or drive your own car.
We'll visit FPC members living at PVN, The Villages of Dallas, and various homes in Dallas. Mari McAdoo and Amy Aamold will be our wonderful song leaders. We plan to be back to the church no later than 3:30. All are welcome to spread some Christmas cheer and have fun with us! RSVP to Kathy Price at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 214-748-8051.
Join us on Saturday, December 1 with a front row seat as the Dallas Holiday Parade passes by FPC once again. We will be passing out balloons, hot chocolate and visiting with neighbors on the sidewalk. 8 a.m. is the latest arrival for garage parking, 9 a.m. is preschool story and music hour with Diana Taylor in the parlor (for families with very young children), and 10:15 a.m. is when the parade will pass FPC.
