Mission and Outreach Teams
The mission of this church is to follow the Biblical teachings of Jesus and give hungry people food, thirsty people a drink of water, pray for hurting people and extend a warm welcome to lonely people. The following Care Teams have been designed to help people and meet their needs. God can use new volunteers in any of these outreach teams so if you have an interest in anyway, contact the team coordinator.
Wheel Chair Ramp Team
The members of this team realize the few front steps of our homes that most of us take for granted are prison walls for people who use a wheelchair. This team is guided by “The Texas Ramp Project” that builds ramps all over Texas. Coordinator: Pat Taggert, 469-261-4499 or email@example.com.
Our church family has a monthly mission emphasis to collect for different needs in the community. The items to be collected are announced from the pulpit and collected for one month on the mission table in the foyer. The collected goods are either distributed to needy people in schools, people in the community or given to Lake Area Shared Ministries (LASM).
Prayer Quilt Ministry
Everybody is on this team! There are many people we know and love that are hurting and need God’s healing touch. These quilts are sewn and placed in worship where prayer knots are tied. There is nothing magical about a prayer quilt but it does show the support of the church family through the ministry of prayer. Not only does the quilt show the support of the church but communicates the “comfort” of God’s love. Watch the bulletin for scheduled quite workshops. Cordinator: Nancy Cleveland, 903-456-9787
