CitySquare

Pleasant Valley United Methodist Church has worked with CitySquare in several initiatives.  One was to purchase backpacks, hygiene products, socks and snacks for the Pleasant Valley UMC youth group to deliver to the homeless at CitySquare.  The PVUMC also made a hot, home cooked meal to the homeless persons who attend Church at the Square and enjoyed worship with them.  Recently, the church members worked with the Dialogue Institute of Dallas to make personal fleece blankets which will be delivered.  To find more about CitySquare, please visit https://www.citysquare.org/.

The Dialogue Institute of Dallas

 The Dialogue Institute engages religious, civic, and academic leaders in practicing the skills of respectful dialogue and critical thinking, building and sustaining transformative relationships across lines of religion and culture.  It provides resources and creates networks for intra – and interreligious scholarship and action that value difference and foster human dignity.  This year, PVUMC enjoyed sharing a Ramadan meal with members of the Dialogue Institute, as well as making personal fleece blankets which will be delivered to the homeless at CitySquare.  For more information, please visit http://www.dialogueinstitute.org.
