Love to sing familiar Christmas music? The Dallas Christmas Choir (The Sounding Joy) practices in November and sings in December. We perform at malls (Northpark this year, Senior Citizens facilities, and other places around Dallas. Last year we sang at the Winspear Opera House.) This is our 37th year!
This is a short term commitment for those who love to sing in a choir (we also need musicians who play piano or other instruments). Our rehearsal and performance times DO NOT typically conflict with church choirs -- so bring your church choir folk along, and sing with us. This is a way to do something you will REALLY enjoy this Christmas season. Please visit DALLAS CHRISTMAS CHOIR for more info and to sign up.

PATHWAY TO DISCIPLESHIP - Over the last year our pastors along with some lay leaders of our church joined with other congregations to participate in a year-long stewardship program by the Texas Methodist Foundation to learn how to foster healthy, significant, and effective discipleship practices in the local church. The end-product of this process is our Pathway to Discipleship! Initiative. The purpose of Pathway is to provide practical information and instruction to deepen the spiritual life of the members of Tyler Street Church and to empower and encourage them into faithful, joyful, and fruitful discipleship.
PROJECT HOPE is a holistic ministry that helps people look at all aspects of their lives. Together families and coaches focus on these 7 areas: family, faith, education, career, budget, health and personal issues. Together our goal is to break the cycle of poverty and help families be healthy, happy stronger Christians. We started over 3 years ago and have seen growth within ourselves, determination, happiness and successes. You may say, how can I help? Do I need something special? We need people willing to be coaches. A coach will receive some training, have some back up help when they need it and God watching over them. If you have about an hour a week to encourage and pray with someone else or know how to budget and are willing to guide someone in that area God needs you to volunteer to help his people. If you are interested, please contact Kathy Bennett at firstname.lastname@example.org.
