Serve Day (October 2nd)

 

SERVE Day is our outreach initiative where we can love people to life through Jesus Christ. Two times a year, we ask the whole church to participate in giving back to our community and focus their efforts in helping those around us. In the fall, we have what we call SERVE Day, this is an incredible day where we’ve had up to 300+ people in our church serve in the city of Carrollton and the surrounding DFW area. During the winter, we have what we call Giving Hope (December 18, 2021). At Giving Hope we invite families in need from the area to come and pick out gifts for their family and hear the good news of Jesus Christ as well as receive a meal to take home. During the Thanksgiving and Christmas season, we have several projects that people can participate in some way to make sure we love people to life.

Dewitt Perry Middle School Beautification Outreach

Dewitt Perry Middle School is under renovation and 95% of classes are in portables. Our “portable city” resembles a prison yard and needs some beautification. Although we will only be in “portable city” for a year until our building is demolished and renovated, I still want it to look nice in the meantime for our kids, faculty, and community.
