Serve Dallas is a churchwide opportunity to gather and make a difference in our community by serving through our local mission partners.
We are excited to be able to serve our community for Serve Dallas on August 12. We have many incredible local partners, who are doing great work. Serve Dallas is our opportunity to help where we can and do what Christ has called us to do, which is serve everyone. We can’t wait to see the impact you’ll have!
The partners we are serving with this time around are listed below. You’ll notice a short description of each serve activity and the time you will serve. Please be aware that times are NOT consistent across the board. Be prepared to serve at the time requested by the organization.
The plan is to meet at the church prior to serving to eat breakfast, pray with one another, and get shirts. Details will be sent out the week prior.

Starting July 23-August 12, food packs will be available for pick-up on the Skybridge and Criswell Lobby. Individual food packs are available as well as a case pack, which includes four food packs that will feed a family with multiple children.
