It’s beginning to feel like Spring! While the temperatures begin to trend downward to create a literal feeling of better weather (amen!), lots of ministries and partnerships are also beginning a new season of life this coming month.

Here’s a crash-through list of things starting anew in September: WILD Wednesdays, ESL classes, Zumba classes, Ladies’ Bible Study, Youth Night, Reading (and Math!) Buddies, Marsh Habitudes, Faith & Finances, Sanctuary Choir, La Paz soccer teams, Mary Martha Guild, PrimeTime events, and Confirmation class as part of the Fall Sunday Discipleship Hour. That’s a whole lot of new!

Looking at all these amazing discipleship and community-serving opportunities through the lens of Holy Cross being a multicultural congregation, it’s humbling. The Lord has brought people from many nations of the world to become part of the Dallas community fabric, and we have the chance to know, to serve, and to learn from them. Many saints have gone before that forged the community connections and built relationships that have become these ministries and partnerships, and they have been left to us to steward well. I am so thankful for those opportunities to get out of my comfort zone and out of my own day-to-day thoughts and habits to be around people that love Jesus or are coming to know him through those who are serving…or maybe even me!

If you would like to learn more about any of that list above, please feel free to email or call the church office, because I would love to connect you. Let’s make much of Jesus and thank him for his love for Dallas and its people!
