UNT Trio plays New Orleans Jazz
In preparation for Lent, Central Christian Church celebrated Mardi Gras Sunday morning.
Guest minister Rev. Cara Gilger delivered the sermon “Improv and the Art of Faith” while a Jazz Trio from the University of North Texas performed “Swing Low Sweet Chariot,” “Shall We Gather at The River” and “When the Saints Go Marching In.”
Following the service, the congregation gathered in Fellowship Hall for a feast fit for King Rex himself. Red beans and rice, Shrimp Creole, Chicken Andouille casserole and coleslaw were served along with Frank’s famous hush puppies. Dessert was King Cake, Pancake bread and pralines.
Central may be the oldest continuously operating church in Dallas, but it proves over and over again that it is “young at heart.” Church in the Dog Park draws paws and their people the first and third Sunday of the month at 9 a.m. and traditional service is held in the sanctuary at 11 a.m. on Sunday mornings. More new things are happening all the time like co-working space, the upstairs wellness center and the music and drama camp for kids this summer. Visit the website for more information. All are welcome!
