October 5 was World Communion Sunday. Adopted in 1940 by the Federal Council of Churches (now the National Council of Churches), it promotes Christian unity and ecumenical cooperation worldwide.
At Central Christian Church, (Disciples of Christ) flags from around the world were displayed during “Children’s Chat” led by Rev. Heather Santi-Brown.
“World Communion is one of my favorite celebrations,” Santi-Brown said as she led the children in the Christian pledge.
She had another reason for celebration; she was being ordained at First Christian Church in Rowlett that afternoon.
After Sunday worship at Central, the congregation gathered in fellowship hall where young and old alike enjoyed a lunch of corny dogs, apple slices with caramel dip and cotton candy cake in honor of the State Fair of Texas.
Everyone is welcome at Central Christian Church located at 4711 Westside Dr. in Dallas. Sunday worship is at 11 a.m. Next Sunday is Blessing of the Animals. Bring your pet (on lead or crated) and join Central for a beautiful service on the lawn followed by a “pet fest” complete with food trucks, music, goody bags and prizes. You and your dog can relax in Central’s dog park or practice “Doga” with Yogi and dog obedience instructor, Terry Gwynne.
