Men's Ministry

Dr. Tully also leads a group of younger men on Monday nights who engage in fellowship, discipleship and spiritual growth.



Our church is involved in both local and worldwide missions. Locally, we have a day called Worship Outside the Walls where we come together with other churches to do needed projects in the community. We also are involved with Kids Against Hunger, and mission trips yearly to Sager Brown UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) in Baldwin, LA.


Community Engagement

Our church is involved in many community engagement programs which include preparing Christmas dinner for over 500 people in our community each year. We also support Waxahachie CARE with food and other necessary goods throughout the year. 


Backpack Ministry

Each week during the school year, our backpack ministry team fills plastic bags with healthy food and snacks for children in need at Shackelford, Felty, and Finley schools in Waxahachie. The counselors at the schools place the food discreetly in their backpacks each Friday.
