These are opportunities for our church family to serve others in our community during the pandemic. If you need help, let us know.
In times of uncertainty, pulling together to help is crucial to the health, well-being, and stability of our local communities. As the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has shown, some of our communities need help more than ever. Although it may seem daunting at first, there are plenty of ways to lend support, funds, or even a helping hand in these trying times.
Not sure where to start? Here’s a few ideas to get you going. Be mindful of your own health issues and do not leave your house if you feel ill or you are at risk in anyway. If you do go out to minister, make sure you take all the precautions suggested to stay healthy.
Each year we partner with our friends at Dallas Leadership Foundation during their Treasures of Hope market. The market is a place where low-income families are able to purchase new gifts within their budgets and explore city resources for health, training, and employment, all while enjoying a meal and holiday festivities.
Of course, this year Treasures of Hope will be different. As we navigate a global pandemic, the need for families this year is even greater. We need your help as we have a drive-thru Christmas. We will collect and box up each family's gift boxes based on their registration selection. The families will have a designated date and time to drive thru and pick up their gift box and a food box.
There are three ways you can be a blessing to these families:

Working with our partner Dallas Leadership Foundation and Primera Iglesia, we will be gathering in limited numbers to pack food boxes to be distributed to those in need across the city. Due to being furloughed during the COVID-19 crisis, many are struggling to feed their families. All precautions will be taken for the health and safety of our volunteers. Everyone will maintain a six foot distance from each other. Both gloves and masks will be worn by everyone (bring your own mask if you have one.) Those under 16 need to be accompanied by an adult.
