Go and Be: Spring Edition

Go and Be: Spring Edition

Due to the unforeseen circustances caused by COVID-19, our Go and Be Spring Edition has changed.  To see ways that you can help during this time, please use these two links: Ways You Can Help or Weekly Food Drive

Spring is full of fun opportunities to go and be the church in our community. Check out these upcoming ways to show Christ’s love to our neighbors, and sign up to join us! And remember, kids are some of our most treasured helpers, so sign up your family to serve with you!

March 16 – 20
Spring break is hard on families who rely on free and reduced lunches for kids at school. We’re going to lighten the burden on these families by providing free lunches to kids all week long! Help us share Christ’s love with those in need by signing up to make sandwiches and deliver the food to Hilltown (outside Little Elm).
