Serve Our Church

 
Followers of Jesus are called to become servants. We want to actively demonstrate self-sacrificial love by serving those both in and outside the church. It takes volunteers to pull off the many gatherings taking place each week. We are a family, and like a family, we all pitch in.

Please look around and then contact the leader for the ministry you would like to volunteer or call the church office at 972-279-7201.

Membership

We provide membership classes for prospective new members, information and mentoring to new members to integrate them into the membership and develop a spirit of friendship and love founded on a common commitment to serve our Lord. 

Children

The children’s ministry provides assistance and support for the Children’s Director in planning, promoting, and implementing activities and events for pre-K children and students in grades K-6, and provides a means to help young people grow up in the wisdom and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ so that they can become the next generation to reach the world with the Good News of the Savior.

Fellowship

Fellowship seeks to encourage relational growth within the church body by organizing regular fellowship opportunities. Through fellowship we build relationships with each other and with our heavenly Father. The team encourages, plans, prepares, and serves at all fellowship functions.

Outreach

Global Outreach is our missions arm both at home and abroad. We provide and foster a world vision within the church and lead in planning and administering the worldwide mission ministries.

Prayer Circle

The Prayer Circle provides the opportunity to meet together on a weekly basis and pray for our members, our church, our country, and our world. We develop the “prayer list” for each week from prayer requests we have received, and send the list to members who wish to pray with us daily but cannot come to the weekly meeting.

Property

Stewardship

Stewardship provides the membership with an understanding of the full meaning of Christian stewardship, and directs the financial program of the church.
