Good News Fest Outreach (August 1st)
Don’t miss our special August outreach on Saturday, August 1 from 10 am - 12 noon. We’re going to have an outdoor GoodNews Fest in the church parking lot. Volunteer and donate items to help and be a blessing! You can sign up at Guest Services.
For this special outreach, we’re partnering together with FHL Outreach, Street Disciples, Building Blocks for Kids, and Fishers of Men to be a blessing to families in need. There will be grocery boxes, school supplies, and prize giveaways. This is a FREE event to help the community!
To be a blessing, between now and July 29, you can donate items for the giveaways and school supplies for children in need. These items can be dropped off in the fellowship atrium.
We’re BLESSED to be a BLESSING!
Our mission field begins at home and we are passionate about reaching Arlington and surrounding cities with the hope that can only be found in Jesus Christ.
LIVE LOVE LEAD OUTREACH - MONTHLY
On the 1st Saturday of every month, teams of church members go out in local neighborhoods to invite people to church. We share God's love and invite people to church, also believing that God will open doors for us to share the Gospel with the people we encounter. We witness and offer to pray with people. The OUTREACH begins at 10 am, but we encourage people to arrive early around 9:45 am. FREE BREAKFAST is provided. Many people bring their families and children on the OUTREACH. This is a wonderful way to be a BLESSING to others and to also share Christ's love.
OTHER OUTREACH OPPORTUNITIES
Every year, we do several outreach projects by partnering together with ministries who do community outreach with an emphasis on evangelism and being a blessing to the poor. Recent community outreaches have included holiday meals for families in need, diaper drives, Christmas gifts for children and families in need, clothes and other items for young adults recovering from drug addictions, plus the Soles 4 Souls homeless outreach. The youth do their own outreaches and the church's private school, St. Paul's Preparatory Academy, also does an annual outreach, plus community service projects.
We are also actively involved with prison outreach in our local area by distributing books, Bibles, and workbooks to people in prison and clothes to people newly released from prison. Clothes can be dropped off at Guest Services after any service or at the church office during the week. If you know someone in prison and would like materials to be sent to them, please contact us and let us know. If you would like to volunteer to help with prison ministry, please fill out our volunteer form and select Prison Ministry. We will then provide your information to Bridges to Life which does prison ministry throughout Texas and they also work in the Estes unit, which is only about 20 minutes away from the church.
We are passionate about reaching people in our community and around the world. In recent years, we have done outreach projects to be a blessing to local organizations that support children who have been abused, neglected, or orphaned. We also actively support organizations that work to protect children before they're born. We have also partnered with Teen Challenge in multiple locations to be a blessing to young men and women recovering from drug addictions.
The church supports the following organizations on a weekly basis which emphasize evangelism plus ministry to the poor and those in need:
- FHL Outreach
- Mission Arlington
- Feed the Hungry (LeSea)
- Tiff Shuttlesworth - Lost Lamb Association
- Teen Challenge Dallas
- Teen Challenge San Antonio
- Bridges to Life Prison Ministry
In 2016, God put it on our Senior Pastor's heart to be a blessing to the poor in our own church community and to also provide scholarships for any children in the church who want to attend St. Paul's Preparatory Academy but are currently unable to do so due to financial reasons. Since then, every Sunday monies are raised for scholarships for church children to attend St. Paul's. Our goal is to raise the money to cover at least 1 school scholarship every month. A tithe of these monies (10%) is also donated to Feed the Hungry.
We firmly believe that we are blessed to be a blessing and that whatever we do for the least of these we do for Jesus Himself!
If you are interested in helping with outreach, join us on the first Saturday of the month as we go out on the LIVE LOVE LEAD Outreach. Anyone can begin helping with our outreach efforts as soon as they begin attending church services.
