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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
