The Encouragers class features a blended lecture/interactive teaching style. They use the “Explore the Bible” curriculum from Lifeway Resources. The class enjoys fellowship several times throughout the year, usually consisting of gathering in a member’s home for a delicious meal and lots of laughter.

The class teacher/director, Mike Paschall, is a retired Dallas ISD Administrator. Mike is also the head usher in the 11am Service. His wife, Marcie, is a faithful member of our First Dallas Orchestra where she plays the viola. They live in Dallas.
