Great Day of Service

We strive to be the hands and feet of Jesus by loving our community through acts of service! 

This annual event is for individuals and families of all shapes and sizes who desire to make a difference in the community. In the past, we have cleaned public parks, delivered baked goods, and so much more!

Invite your friends and sign up with your family to participate in service projects around the DFW Metroplex.
