Remodeling an old house for our business, I stumbled upon some old newspaper clippings from 1960. This ad was one of them.
If anyone happened to get a photo of us with Corinne this morning, would you mind sending it to me? I'd appreciate it!

The hope of First Presbyterian Church of Dallas is to seek the transformation of our city as ministers of reconciliation, peace, and justice.

We follow the way of Jesus where the healing is generous and everyone is welcome. Our church is not the finish line, it's a starting place on a journey to discover the light and love of God.

Today's Scripture is Mark 8:27-38

Jesus went on with his disciples to the villages of Caesarea Philippi; and on the way he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” And they answered him, “John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets.” He asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered him, “You are the Messiah.” And he sternly ordered them not to tell anyone about him.

Then he began to teach them that the Son of Man must undergo great suffering, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. He said all this quite openly. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. But turning and looking at his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan! For you are setting your mind not on divine things but on human things.”

He called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them, “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it. For what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life? Indeed, what can they give in return for their life? Those who are ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of them the Son of Man will also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”

Today's Scripture is Mark 7:24-37

From there he set out and went away to the region of Tyre. He entered a house and did not want anyone to know he was there. Yet he could not escape notice, but a woman whose little daughter had an unclean spirit immediately heard about him, and she came and bowed down at his feet. Now the woman was a Gentile, of Syrophoenician origin. She begged him to cast the demon out of her daughter. He said to her, “Let the children be fed first, for it is not fair to take the children’s food and throw it to the dogs.” But she answered him, “Sir, even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.” Then he said to her, “For saying that, you may go—the demon has left your daughter.” So she went home, found the child lying on the bed, and the demon gone.

Then he returned from the region of Tyre, and went by way of Sidon towards the Sea of Galilee, in the region of the Decapolis. They brought to him a deaf man who had an impediment in his speech; and they begged him to lay his hand on him. He took him aside in private, away from the crowd, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spat and touched his tongue. Then looking up to heaven, he sighed and said to him, “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.” And immediately his ears were opened, his tongue was released, and he spoke plainly. Then Jesus ordered them to tell no one; but the more he ordered them, the more zealously they proclaimed it. They were astounded beyond measure, saying, “He has done everything well; he even makes the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.”

A mother's one-liner abruptly expands the scope of Jesus' ministry. Jesus sighs before sticking his fingers in a deaf man's ears. A disciple is rebuked for sounding like the devil. Visions of one-footed followers hopping behind Jesus are blessed. A child crawls into the lap of God while the grownups stay criss-cross apple sauce on the ground.

In the middle chapters of Mark's gospel, Jesus makes a decisive turn toward Jerusalem and his cross. On the way home, the secret he tried hard to hold close seeps out in a series of unexpected encounters. The result is a depiction of divine eccentricity. The Son of God doesn't fit in, at all.

For the next four weeks in worship, we'll be paying close attention to Jesus' unconventional expressions of love in four passages from Mark's gospel. Enlightened by the eccentricity of Jesus, we'll be free to ask questions like "What now?" and "Do we, too, have to act so consistently strange to follow Jesus?

Today's Scripture is Revelation 7:9-17

After this I looked, and there was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, robed in white, with palm branches in their hands. They cried out in a loud voice, saying,

“Salvation belongs to our God who is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb!”

And all the angels stood around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, singing,

“Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom
and thanksgiving and honor
and power and might
be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”

Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, “Who are these, robed in white, and where have they come from?” I said to him, “Sir, you are the one that knows.” Then he said to me, “These are they who have come out of the great ordeal; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

For this reason they are before the throne of God,
and worship him day and night within his temple,
and the one who is seated on the throne will shelter them.
They will hunger no more, and thirst no more;
the sun will not strike them,
nor any scorching heat;
for the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd,
and he will guide them to springs of the water of life,
and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

Coming Soon to Our Neighborhood - Development Meeting

Coming Soon to Our Neighborhood - Development Meeting

Tune in this evening as we hear from different developers who are working on projects that will revitalize the areas around FPC Dallas.

_______

Dallas is going through a period of growth and revitalization, and in just a couple of years, the immediate area surrounding First Presbyterian Church of Dallas will look very different than it does now.

Harwood Park, a new public neighborhood park, is being developed just across the street to the east of our campus. The Block House (the old Masonic Temple) is being redeveloped into an art space just south of our Sanctuary. And progress continues at Encore Park, just south of our Parking Garage and east of The Stewpot. All three of these adjacent properties are scheduled to be open to the public within the next 24 months.

Please join us tonight from 5-6:30 pm for special presentations on these projects by leaders from Downtown Dallas, Inc., Encore Park Dallas, Parks for Downtown Dallas, and Todd Interests. Speakers will include Dustin Bullard, Executive Vice President – Economic Development & Space of Downtown Dallas, Inc.; Amy Meadows, President & CEO of Parks for Downtown Dallas; Patrick Todd, Managing Partner of Todd Interests; and Michael Meadows, Interim Executive Director, Encore Park Dallas.

We’re excited about the new life these projects will breathe into our neighborhood and look forward to hearing more about the new faces they will attract. When you leave, you’ll be able to answer the question “what is happening on that piece of property next to our church?” We hope that you’ll join us to learn about these important projects, to see the growth that is happening around us and to meet our future neighbors.

Today's Scripture is Luke 13:6-9

Then he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it and found none. So he said to the gardener, ‘See here! For three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree, and still I find none. Cut it down! Why should it be wasting the soil?’ He replied, ‘Sir, let it alone for one more year, until I dig around it and put manure on it. If it bears fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down.’”

Today's Scripture is Matthew 4:1-11

Then the Spirit led Jesus up into the wilderness so that the devil might tempt him. After Jesus had fasted for forty days and forty nights, he was starving. The tempter came to him and said, “Since you are God’s Son, command these stones to become bread.”

Jesus replied, “It’s written, People won’t live only by bread, but by every word spoken by God.”

After that the devil brought him into the holy city and stood him at the highest point of the temple. He said to him, “Since you are God’s Son, throw yourself down; for it is written, I will command my angels concerning you, and they will take you up in their hands so that you won’t hit your foot on a stone."

Jesus replied, “Again it’s written, Don’t test the Lord your God.”

Then the devil brought him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. He said, “I’ll give you all these if you bow down and worship me.”

Jesus responded, “Go away, Satan, because it’s written,You will worship the Lord your God and serve only him.”The devil left him, and angels came and took care of him.

Our Story

For over 150 years, First Presbyterian Church has embodied a heart for this city, putting faith into action as an innovator for social justice in downtown Dallas.
