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.

Worship Outside the Walls

Each fall, our church is involved in a project with other churches called "Worship Outside the Walls". From building ramps, to making little dresses for Africa, to baking cookies for our firefighters and law enforcement officers, we have something for you to do.

 

 

Lord's Acre Harvest Fest

Each fall, we come together to give back to the Lord at our annual Lord's Acre Harvest Fest. 

Come join us for a time of food, fellowship, live and silent auctions and a time to give.

 

 

Christmas Dinner

Each year on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, volunteers come together to prepare and serve meals to people in our community. This year we served nearly 500 meals.
