The Miss Deaf Texas Ambassador program is not a beauty pageant, but a tradition that has been going on for 35 years providing a forum for the Deaf Texas ladies to express their opinions, talent and intelligence. It will be a positive experience for the deaf and hearing community to enjoy watching the program. The winner of the Miss Deaf Texas title will be awarded the Tara McAvoy Scholarship of $1000.00.

Worship and Fellowship Accessibility

RespondBy Dr. Julie Howard | May.20, 2011 | Filed in: Community

First United Methodist Church Downtown offers an interpreted traditional worship service as well as all special events. As the Deaf members of the church family continue to grow in numbers, Deaf leadership has begun forming a Deaf and HH Sunday Class to meet at 9:45 just prior to the 11:00am worship service. Whenever possible, the group will continue fellowship by sharing lunch together at a local downtown restaurant. Come one Comes ALL!!! – Dr. Julie Howard – docjhoward@gmail.com
