13TH ANNUAL JAMES CLAY TRIBUTE!

Sunday, September 5, 2021

7:00 pm, $15


Join us for our 13th annual tribute to James Earl Clay (1935-1995), an American hard bop jazz tenor saxophonist & flutist, and a native of Dallas, TX. Clay worked and recorded with numerous acknowledged jazz greats including Wynton Kelly, Don Cherry, Billy Higgins, Sonny Clark, Victor Feldman, Cedar Walton, Charlie Haden, David "Fathead" Newman, Wes Montgomery, Ray Charles, Hank Crawford, Dewey Redman & Ornette Coleman.


The program will consist of veteran Dallas/Fort Worth jazz musicians who kow and worked with James Clay. These include multi-instrumentalists, vocalists, drummers, pianists, bassists and guitarists.


With the spirit of real jazz that was always the deep, soulful essence of Clay's music. Johnny Case states: "He was the greatest jazz musician I've worked with, and I've played with a few whose names are better-known."


It will be a great opportunity to celebrate his life and talent if you knew him and a great opportunity to learn about him if you are just coming to an awareness of how great he was. This tribute is a wonderful happening at which to hang out.

18-hour Online Event


Communities Foundation of Texas’ NTX Giving Day is an 18-hour online giving event designed to empower every person to give back to their community by supporting local nonprofits and causes they care about in one easy-to-use platform.


The event helps build awareness and support for nonprofits like nothing else. In 2020, $58.8 million was raised through 106,000 donors benefiting over 3,200 local nonprofits, bringing the eleven-year total to over $374 million for our community. NTX Giving Day is the largest community-wide giving event in the nation. 


Since its inception in 2009, this online event has transformed from an idea to help local people give wisely, to a movement that has ignited a broad culture of community-wide giving. During NTX Giving Day, everyone has the opportunity to be a philanthropist to build a stronger and more vibrant community.
We each have the power to do something today that helps our community be the best it can be! #BeTheGood on #NTxGivingDay 9/23/21!

A5A 20TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION
Sunday, September 12, 2021


A5A will be celebrating our 20th ANNIVERSARY!
We hope all of our patrons will be able to join us to commemorate this incredible milestone. It will be a momentous celebration!

BREAD CHURCH with Rev. Charlie Johnson
Sundays, Main Room
10:30 am-12:00 pm


All are always welcome at Bread Fellowship—we believe strongly in our call by God to be inclusive of all God’s children. Our hope and prayer is that visiting at Bread is like coming home where you are loved and accepted.


Worship begin as we gather in a circle and share the peace of Christ. There are scriptures, prayers, and other readings. One of our two pastors leads worship by sharing a meditation on the scripture for the day. There is always time for discussion and questions so that our worship can make a difference in the way we live in the week to come.


We conclude our celebration each week by sharing the Lord’s Supper. The dress is casual, come as you are. There is no membership requirement. There is no giving requirement.


There are only two rules: 1) Everyone is welcome. 2) We will never own property - we believe it detracts from our call to be salt and light in the world.
