Upcoming Hot Topic Discussion at FCC Lewisville
As a part of our continuing Hot Topic discussion series, First Christian Church Lewisville will host a presentation and conversation on “How to Build Meaningful Relationships in this time of Social Unrest: From Isis to Charlotte” on Wednesday, August 12, 2015. A light dinner will be served at 5:30 pm, with the discussion from 6:00-7:30. The guest speakers and presenters will be Reverend Olin Fregia and Reverend Virzola Law. There is no charge to attend this event.
Rev. Olin Fregia is minister at large for the Disciples of Christ and is the former Campus Pastor at Jarvis Christian College. He has served as lead teacher of Inner City Bible Ministries, a non-denominational para-church effort focused on ministering to urban youth in public housing communities. As the former Youth Pastor and Director of one of the oldest African American Churches in Dallas, Munger Avenue Baptist Church, he concentrated on reaching un-churched youth through bible-based, culturally-driven programs that included gender specific mentoring, youth retreats and contemporary media projects.
Rev. Virzola Law is the first female and the first African American elected to serve in a senior pastor position at Lindenwood Christian Church, a historically white church in Memphis, Tennessee. The church is deeply rooted in the Memphis community, dating back to 1853. Lindenwood’s Senior Minister Search Committee referred to Rev. Law’s election by unanimous vote as a “bold” and “historic” move. Rev. Law previously served as pastor of discipleship and leadership at Mississippi Blvd. Christian Church in Memphis and as senior pastor at Woodland Christian Church in Houston.
In this interactive Hot Topic program, Rev. Fregia and Rev. Law will provide an overview of the global factors contributing to the current social environment before leading the group in a robust conversation, including a question and answer period. You will not want to miss this special event!

New Youth Minister Cassandra Bering
We are delighted to welcome our new Youth Minister, Cassandra Bering, to the FCC Lewisville family! Cassandra, like Aeri and Amanda before her, is a student at TCU’s Brite Divinity School. She is pursuing her Master of Divinity degree and will be spending a year with us as part of her Supervised Ministry coursework. While Cassandra may be new to our congregation, she is not new to ministry. She is a licensed minister with the Potter’s House Alliance of Ministers and Elder…s. She is also a talented vocalist and sings with the Potter’s House Chorale (we sincerely hope she will bless us with a few songs while she’s with us!). Prior to entering Brite, Cassandra worked for 20 years with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice where she was the first African American female promoted to ranking supervisor within her unit. She has many other achievements on her resume, so you can trust that we are very fortunate that she’s chosen to share her numerous talents with our youth! We know she will enrich their spiritual journey in the coming months, so please give her a warm welcome when you see her in our hallways. Welcome, Cassandra!!!
