Current Service Opportunities

  • One + One

    Consider volunteering for the One + One reading program through

    GISD schools. Volunteers are needed to donate 1 hour a week to help

    with reading skills in our partner elementary schools. What a gift to give

    to a child encouraging them to read! Stop by the table in the ministry hall

    to sign up.

  • Bed Start

    A great ministry for individual and families (adults, youth, even school-age kids) to help deliver furniture and beds to families in need on Saturday mornings.

    There are a variety of duties needed in order to get furniture delivered. The best crew would consist of some who visit with household, while the stronger people carry the heavy stuff. Persons who can't lift due to weight restrictions can help with assembly. 

    Contact Susie Parker for more information.

  • ZOE Ministries - our African mission outreach

    Our church has supported ZOE ministries for the past three years and we have committed to support them again for another three.

    ZOE is a three-year program that empowers orphans and vulnerable children around the world to overcome poverty and become fully self-reliant. Active in Kenya, Rwanda, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Liberia, Guatemala and India, ZOE has nearly 28,000 children currently enrolled. ZOE’s unique approach to empowerment:

    Locally-based: Zoe employs all indigenous staff to implement the program in each country.

    Comprehensive: Children are connected together in groups of 60-80.

    Child-led: Through ZOE ministries, children take the lead in their own journey out of poverty.

  • One+One Reading Program

    Our Bishop, Mike McKee, has challenged each congregation in the conference to have at least 10% of our worshiping congregation involved in this program. We are joining with churches across the North Texas Conference by working in partnership with Rowlett and Stephens Elementary.

    Each volunteer spends one hour a week at the school reading with children, tutoring, and mentoring, building relationships with children and with the school.


    If God is leading you to make a difference in the life of a child, check out this video or email Nancy Bowdre for more information.
