Major Men's Mission Project Underway in Dallas

The Regional Men's Ministry of the Christian Church in the Southwest has come to Dallas for its 2015 Mission Project: the construction of a sanctuary for Mission La Roca, one of the NTA's newer Hispanic congregations. Financed by Church Extension, a ministry of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), this building will enable the congregation, led by Rev. Daniel Guzman, to serve a part of Dallas underserved by Spanish-speaking congregations. Joining the volunteers are several members of North Texas Area congregations. Most of the volunteers from across the region are housed at Iglesia Cristiana Bethel of Dallas, on Military Parkway during designated work sessions, including one coming up near the end of March. Others interested in donating a day or a week of their time that week can get further information from the NTA office (972-272-2900).
