This year we will be joining St. Philips UMC and Georgetown UMC and heading down to Rockport, Texas to help with flood relief after Hurricane Harvey. We are excited to go partner with organizations that are there year-round as we help rebuild houses.

Prison Entrepreneurship Program

PEP’s Venture Capital Panels are coming to the Sanders Estes Unit in Venus, TX  on Saturday May 12 from 9 am to 4 pm.
 
This event is very much like the TV show Shark Tank, but a whole lot more interactive and fun. Come prepared to channel you inner Mark Cuban or Laurie Greiner as we place you on a panel to listen to the 2-3 minute “elevator pitches” of our participants. This will be the first opportunity for the 91 men of Legacy ’18 to pitch to “Sharks” like yourself. Our aspiring entrepreneurs will have the stomach butterflies fluttering as they put into practice what they have learned in class and at Toastmasters. We need you to provide the valuable feedback and encouragement these guys need to get their business plans on track.
 
The Estes Unit is about 20 miles south of Arlington. It will last most of the day. We will be eating lunch in the unit cafeteria with our participants in between pitch sessions. The theme of the day will be FUN, so come prepared to have plenty of that. This new group of 90+ men are a great class and have brought tons of energy to the program - expect to be blown away.
 
To sign up, click here, choose Venture Capital Panels and fill out the required questionnaire. For more information, please contact, Rev. Joy Dister-Dominguez (joy@arborlawnumc.org).

Easter Vigil

Between Good Friday and Easter Sunday is Saturday, a day of darkness, uncertainty, and yet, still the slightest bit of hope. In this early church this would be the night that all new persons to the faith, who after a time of learning and discernment throughout the season of Lent, would be Baptized, and welcomed into the church as full members. 

Join us for this service at 7:00 pm in the Chapel. We will remember our baptism. We will tell the story of our God from the beginning. We will gather at the table. And, we will walk away filled with light and life, knowing that the tomb is close to being empty.

The Fabric of Faith: Learning from the Women of the New Testament

The Fabric of Faith: Learning from the Women of the New Testament

Lots of women appear in the New Testament. Some are named individuals (Syntyche, Lois, Mary Magdalene); others are not. Some are celebrated disciples (the Samaritan woman), apostles (Junia), deacons, and ministers (Phoebe)--vocal proponents of our faith. Others teach wisdom by example through their actions. We hear about individual women but also groups of women, like the widows of 1 Timothy or the female Corinthian prophets. While most of the women are real, some are figurative (Lady Wisdom; Daughter Zion, the woman clothed with the sun; the whore of Babylon).

How might we encounter Jesus by spending time with some of these characters? What word might they have for ourselves and for our communities? Come renew your acquaintance with or meet these women for the first time! Presented by New Testament Scholar, author, speaker, Rev. Dr. Jaime Clark-Soles, Perkins School of Theology, Professor of New Testament.
