Joining the Disciples Women of Central Christian Church on Tuesday November 6 as program guest speaker is former Senior Co-Pastor, Rev. Dr. Debbie Chisolm.
If you have ever heard Debbie speak, either in Central’s sanctuary or on WRR radio, you know that you are in for a treat. If you have not—you are in for a treat.
Debbie was Senior Co-Pastor at Central from July 2011 until February 2016. Looking back, some of the great memories include an old-fashioned "tent-type" revival in downtown Dallas. Modern skyscrapers were the backdrop while Debbie proclaimed, “we are standing on holy ground” as Central celebrated their 150th anniversary. Or the summer of surprises! That was the year the church had no air-conditioning and Debbie kept the congregation coming by preaching in front of a casket when no one had died and celebrating a wedding when no one got married. During Holy Week she directed the re-enactment of “The Last Supper” and wrote and directed the play, “Have You Seen My Son?” to bring Biblical stories to life.
Prompted by a busy lifestyle as wife to a General, mom to three daughters and grandma to 10 adored granddaughters with another on the way, after 39 years in ministry, Debbie retired from her position as a congregational pastor. However, she will never totally retire from the pulpit as her talent as a preacher is too well known. Debbie is frequently asked to speak at area churches when a minister is away.
The Disciples Women of Central are thrilled to have her at the November meeting to share the stories of Hulda and Anna, two women prophets who demonstrated their purpose and calling as they heard from and spoke for God.
The meeting will be held in the sanctuary and begins at 10:30 a.m.
Following the program, everyone is invited to enjoy a fiesta buffet on the church lawn by the sprawling Bois D’Arc tree. Lunch will be catered by El Fenix Restaurant in honor of Debbie and her heritage. In case of inclement weather, there is a back-up plan for lunch.
You don’t have to be a member of Central, or any church for that matter, to be a part of Disciples Women and their ministry. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for a reservation. Cost for lunch is $5.00. All are welcome.
