"Where God things happen" Come join us on zoom or in person and in mission. Feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, caring for the unsheltered, love in action.
Our job is not to judge. Our job is not to figure
out if someone deserves something. Our job is
to lift the fallen, to restore the broken,
and to heal the hurting.

Using those of us who have fallen,
been broken and have been hurt.
Okay Why was my comment removed from of yesterday removed ?
When will you Open Again God does not like Zoom all that much He loves people filling his pews.

THE PEOPLE IN THE WINDOWS AT
FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH DUNCANVILLE

Andrew Jackson Boshers Sr. came to Texas from Mount Pleasant, Tennessee in 1913. The eleven-year-old Andrew and family came by train. One of his siblings was Docia Boshers who later married A. A. Hulshouser. They later became the parents of Thelma who married T. C. Fouts. The Bosher family lived on a farm three miles north of Duncanville where they grew cotton.
At the time he was a student at the Duncanville school and recalled the town consisted of a cotton gin, a bank, a post office, two groceries, a blacksmith, and one gasoline pump. Andrew married Ella Mae Hulshouser in 1919. They had five sons, but only three lived to adulthood. They placed this window in memory of their two deceased sons. Andrew Jackson Boshers Jr. died in 1948 at age 16 from a head injury. Johnnie Jackson Boshers died of a heart attack at 37 in Canyon, TX. Their three living sons were Grady, Wilson, and Fred.
Thelma Fouts remembered that her uncle Andrew was the church treasurer. He kept the church’s money in a cigar box and would pay the preacher after each service. If he ran short, he would make up the difference out of his own pocket.
During the 1950s, Thelma became the church secretary and her uncle Andrew offered to come to the church and fold the mimeographed newsletter. For the rest of his life, the senior Andrew was active in the church, holding many offices and spending many years on the church board.

THE PEOPLE IN THE WINDOWS AT
FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH DUNCANVILLE

This gentleman was referred to as E. B. Hall, but his real name was actually Rasmus B. Hall, and his nickname was “Ras”. He was born in Tennessee in 1866 and came to Texas when he was 10 years old settling in Lancaster. His father J. J. Hall was a Disciples minister and was the first full-time minister at the Pleasant Grove Christian Church. In 1887 Ras met Lucy Ellen Compton at a revival meeting and married her in 1887. Soon after they married, they moved to Duncanville. They were among the early families to become involved in FCC Duncanville, joining in 1896.
In Duncanville, Ras owned a cotton gin, a threshing machine, the local telephone exchange (which was located in his home on North Main Street), and a gasoline filling station. In 1926 their house burned and they moved to Hustead Street. They had seven children, many of whom were also members of the church.

Song Sheet for April 18, 2021

All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name!
All hail the power of Jesus’ name! Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem, and crown him Lord of all;
Bring forth the royal diadem, and crown him Lord of all.

Ye seed of Israel’s chosen race, ye ransomed of the fall,
Hail him who saves you by his grace, and crown him Lord of all;
Hail him who saves you by his grace, and crown him Lord of all.

O sinners, who can ne’er forget the wormwood and the gall,
Go spread your trophies at his feet, and crown him Lord of all;
Go spread your trophies at his feet, and crown him Lord of all.

Let every kindred, every tribe, on this terrestrial ball,
To him all majesty ascribe, and crown him Lord of all;
To him all majesty ascribe, and crown him Lord of all.

O that with yonder sacred throng, we at his feet may fall!
We’ll join the everlasting song, and crown him Lord of all;
We’ll join the everlasting song, and crown him Lord of all.

He Lives
I serve as risen Savior, he’s in the world today;
I know that he is living, whatever others say.
I see his hand of mercy, I hear his voice of cheer,
And just the time I need him, he’s always near.

(Refrain)
He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me along life’s narrow way.
He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know he lives? He lives within my heart.

In all the world around me I see his loving care,
And though my heart grows weary, I never will despair.
I know that he is leading through all the stormy blast;
The day of his appearing will come at last.
(Refrain)

Rejoice, rejoice, O Christian, lift up your voice and sing
Eternal hallelujahs to Jesus Christ the King!
The hope of all who seek him, the help of all who find;
None other is so loving, so good and kind.

(Refrain)

PURPLE POWER
It would normally be the Sunday after you paid your taxes, but even the one agency you thought would never change has changed their mind about that date. The new date to pay taxes is June 15, 2021. The only constant is God’s love and the love of His Church, FCC and people. To let this place of love, peace, and faith in action be known to the community it is important that we wear our FCC Duncanville T-Shirts on appropriate occasions.

Occasions that PURPLE POWER T-Shirts are appropriate - the in person or ZOOM service on April 18 and the THIRD Sunday of each Month. The Blue FCC T-Shirts or whatever you choose would also be appropriate! There are a few T-shirts available for purchase. If interested, contact Dave Spencer (469) 612-4171 or the church during office hours. Let’s beat the attendance of the last T-shirt Sunday!!

THE PEOPLE IN THE WINDOWS
AT FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH DUNCANVILLE

The Daniel family was the driving force behind the founding of FCC Duncanville. Ellison A. Daniel, a Baptist minister from Kentucky, came to the Duncanville area in 1852 and had a profound effect on several religious organizations. In 1855, he founded the West Fork Baptist Association and organized a church on the Trees’ family land at Little Bethel School House which later became the Cedar Hill Baptist Church.
Robert N. Daniel, Son of Ellison, was fourteen years old when he accompanied his family to Texas. The Daniel family settled east of Duncanville, and in 1861 Robert married Frances A. Palmer who had been a member of a Disciples church in Missouri. For many years they attended Rev. Daniel’s church in Cedar Hill, but Frances never forgot her Disciple heritage.
Between 1890 and 1892 an itinerant Disciples minister, George Q. Grasty from Lancaster was holding informal meetings in the Duncanville area. Not only did Robert and Fannie attend the meetings, but Fannie took communion with the Disciples. When she would not promise the Baptist deacons that she would cease taking communion with the Disciples, her name was removed from the Baptist Church rolls.
At that time the Disciples had communion at the end of the service followed by a hymn. Following a meeting, Robert asked Rev. Grasty if there had been a discussion of organizing a Disciples church. If so, he was willing to support the endeavor. Those in attendance reconvened, and seventeen charter members organized the church as a member of the Disciples of Christ movement.

Dear Friends,
CHRIST HAS RISEN! CHRIST LIVES AGAIN! Now is our time to share Good News! Lent and Holy Week are about preparation and making the journey with Jesus to the cross and beyond the grave. Just as the disciples would soon inherit the ministry of Good News and the message of the coming Kingdom of God, it is ours now! The Easter message renews us to this call and the faith journey that Jesus started.
Getting us here again has fallen on the shoulders and hearts of many folks in our congregation. Our Worship team has included the Worship Committee, our A/V folks, Property, Evangelism, our Disciples Women, the Elders, the Choir and other music folks, our Worship Leaders, Diane and Deb and others who decorated and provided Sanctuary flowers, and of course Jaime and Wanda! I could attempt to name the many who put countless hours into just our worship experiences, but I would inevitably leave some folks out! So, let me say thank you to everyone who led, planned, and developed our worship experiences this year!
Accompanying what we were able to do this year in our worship services, both Sanctuary and Zoom, have been our Outreach folks. Jim and Lynn with our variety of Outreach ministries and Bob and Bonnie, Jim, Gayle, and others who have assembled and distributed Bob’s Bags to the homeless in Dallas and here in Duncanville. Not only have we been blessed, but we have been able to bless others!
I would also like to say thank you to this congregation for the generous bonuses given this year to the staff and myself! It is always nice to receive affirmations from those we do ministry alongside and most especially from those we respect!
As we are hopeful the end is in sight for finally getting a handle on COVID and its’ various mutations, I look forward to being together in the sanctuary in full strength again. It was great being in the sanctuary again Sunday! I realized my voice was barely in shape to do two services back-to-back, much less three for Easter Sunday – especially with singing. That will come back with a little more practice! Now, on this side of Easter, I hope all our voices are prepared to sing God’s praises and to exclaim – CHRIST IS RISEN! CHRIST LIVES AGAIN!
In the risen Christ’s service together wherever He leads,
David
