We believe that God has intentionally placed us here for the purpose of exhaling the gospel into our community through loving service and partnering with gospel-centered ministries.
Serve the City
2019 Schedule: March 3 & Nov. 10
One way that we exhale the gospel is by taking a regular Sunday morning and worshiping God through loving service to our city. Since 2014, this has been a powerful expression of Christ’s love for the community. Our desire is that Serve the City will be a tangible way for us to perform meaningful tasks for the community while showing the love of Jesus to those being served. We pray that by 2026, we will take 4 Sundays that our entire congregation will not be in the pews, but instead intentionally bless our community. We currently celebrate two Serve the City Sundays each year.
On Nov. 10, we will be partnering with Children’s Hunger Fund to pack Mobile Food Paks for families that live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Children’s Hunger Fund is an organization that equips churches with Food Paks so church volunteers can reach out to those in their community and build meaningful relationships.
On March 3, 2019, partnered with AISD and GPISD to connect with schools and serve them. In all, we were able to serve more than 30 different schools and bless each school with cleanup work around their grounds, gifts to teachers and other service projects.
If you would like more information about these partnerships or ways that you could be a part of leading this effort, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Because we serve through community groups, contact Carlos Pinero, community group pastor email@example.com, about how to be connected to a group.
One simple thing can make a big difference in the life of an at-risk child: One-on-one, positive attention from a responsible, caring adult. Kids Hope USA develops these one-on-one relationships through church-school partnerships that pair church members with at-risk kids in supportive, mentoring relationships.
Kids Hope USA mentors spend just one hour per week, reading, talking, playing and listening to a child at school. By helping the child feel loved and valued, they help that child to learn, grow and succeed. We know that God has called our church to invest in kids' lives in a significant way. We pray that by 2026, we will have more than 500 volunteers mentoring elementary students in our local schools.
If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please contact Connie Holland at firstname.lastname@example.org.
