There are many excuses one might have for not going to church Sunday morning. Wanting to spend quality time with your dog can no longer be one of them.

On a large wooden platform recently at Central Dog Park at Central Christian Church, a Great Dane had taken his place. Around him, other dogs ran back and forth – a squirrely terrier even attempted to join him – as a small group of people gathered for fellowship. They sang worship songs, such as “Surely the presence of the Lord,” and “They’ll know we are Christians,” and read about the clashing relationship between Paul and the Corinthians.

“Not really,” he said.

He even extended the statement to those outside of his church who live in the Park Cities and Preston Hollow neighborhoods.

So, what do you do about that?

“We had our first meeting seven years ago,” music director Harry Wooten said about plans for the church to purchase a new pipe organ. At the time, he said the house of worship had an old pipe organ that was in disrepair.
