Serve Dallas is a churchwide opportunity to gather and make a difference in our community by serving through our local mission partners. In just one day, volunteers experience a little bit of what our local partners do every day, giving each volunteer a greater appreciation for what our mission partners do. Serving is truly a privilege, and as a church, we count it an absolute honor to be able to serve our city.
This event is perfect for Sunday School Classes, large and small groups, families, or individuals who are looking to make a difference. For questions, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Participants will not be meeting at the church on Saturday, August 8. People who signed up for Serve Dallas will be meeting at their specific locations.
We are offering the opportunity for individuals and families to participate in service projects while maintaining safety precautions. Options include signing up to build food packs by purchasing specific items, assembling packs from home, and dropping them off at the church or serving outdoors, physically distanced.
Serve Undernourished Children by Fulfilling a Food Pack from Home
Children’s Hunger Fund is one of our partners in helping provide food to undernourished children. Due to Covid-19, there has been an uptick in child hunger here in Dallas. With schools out and some programs unavailable, many children don’t have enough to eat.
Children’s Hunger Fund is asking First Dallas to help. Our goal is to fill 300 Food Packs for undernourished children in our community. Once assembled, the Food Packs will be delivered directly to the homes of those in need, right here in our community – along with the hope and love of Jesus!
How can you participate?
*On July 19, July 26, August 2, and August 9, Food Packs will be available at First Dallas on the Worship Center Concourse and the Criswell Center Lobby for pick-up.
*Once you pick-up a Food Pack, head to the store (or order online) and fill the Food Pack with the items on the list provided. Each Food Pack costs approx. $12 to fill.
*Drop-off the Food Pack on Sunday mornings at one of the Serve Dallas booths at First Dallas prior to Monday, August 17. You may also drop off Food Packs during the week at the Security Desk in the Criswell Center Lobby. All Food Packs must be received by Monday, August 17, at 10am.
What is the cost to fill a food pack? Only $12 provides essential nourishment for a child.
