• Lord’s Acre Annual Festival  

The annual Lord’s Acre is one of our favorite fall events. Church members and the community come together for a fun-filled weekend.

It starts with a meal and dance on Friday night, followed by an all-day event on Saturday featuring handcrafted treasures, delicious food, a silent auction and our famous live auction. On Sunday morning, we all gather together and worship on the new property at Ovilla Road and Westmoreland.

  • Miles for Missions 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run  

Our Miles for Mission Race helps raise money for Missions one step at a time. Literally. And all runners are welcome—whether you’re trying to set your personal best or just want to walk and chat with friends.

  • Garage Sale  

Every April, our annual Garage Sale helps us reach out to the community and raise money for missions. From furniture to clothes to one-of-a-kind home décor, you’ll be sure to find a special treasure or two, or maybe ten.  For more information, email Peggy Schieffer at fran-peggy@sbcglobal.net

We’ve partnered with Veterans Affairs to help veterans at the VA Hospital. Currently, we’re collecting the following items for distribution:  lotion, powder, shaving cream, razors and lip balm. Good used jeans and coats for men and women are also needed.  $10 Walmart gift cards are donated to veterans, enabling them to purchase gas and drive to and from treatments and doctor visits. The missions fund donates $200 in gift cards quarterly.
