Here is a list of missions we as a church participate in. You can contact the individual who heads up each one to see how you can get involved.
Back to School Clothing Sale, All ages, August, Youth Building.
The Back to School Clothing Sale is being held on Saturday, August 20th in conjunction with Rock the Block. We serve our community by offering clothing for $.25/ea. We need your help to sort clothing, fold, and sell! All money goes back into our Body of Christ food bank program.

PDF Schedule: The week before the sale, we will meet Monday-Friday in the youth building at different times to set up and sort clothing. All dates TBA.
The Body of Christ Food Center, 2nd Saturdays, Youth Building
The Body of Christ Food Center provides food each month to families in need. We need volunteers to register new clients, pick up the food in Dallas (this will require a pick up truck), and distribute the food in the Youth Center. Join us in making a difference in our community.

RUSS GLENN COMMUNITY GARDEN at 224 N. Center Street is open to anyone in the community who wishes to have a small garden plot. The Keep Grand Prairie Beautiful Program sponsors our garden and has provided a large variety of seeds and onion sets. The City’s Master Composting group will visit our garden on June 4 to view our composting activities. The garden is entirely organic.
Participating gardeners meet as a group each fourth Saturday of the month to share gardening plans and do general clean up chores. However, the May meeting is moved to the third Saturday (10 am-12 noon) because of Memorial Day Holiday weekend. The meetings on the fourth Saturdays in June, July, August, and September Saturday are from 8 am to 10 am to avoid the heat. Gardeners bring good to enjoy lunch or breakfast together, depending on meeting times.
Excess produce will be shared with the Body of Christ Food Pantry and the Grand Prairie Food & Clothing Co-op.
Come check us out and learn to grow your own vegetables, enjoy God’s wonderful world, and to make new friends.
