Disciple Making Communities

Some DMCs have already begun and some begin today. We believe that being in spiritual community is vital to our growth in Christ and encourage everyone to be part of one of these communities. All the groups are listed at, or you can sign up on the app. If you are part of an existing group, consider who you can invite to join you and share the blessing of community.

This summer, the Barnabas Center, was honored to receive the Be Our Guest Grant from North Texas Food Bank in the amount of $16,000. This grant will help us to continue to distribute nutritious food to our community through our partnership with the North Texas Food Bank. Specifically, the Barnabas Center was able to purchase a new glass door refrigerator and freezer as well as resurface the floor. They were also able to upgrade some office equipment and  purchase furniture for the lobby. The Barnabas Center distributes food to dozens of families each month. Thanks to everyone who assists at the Barnabas Center and to the entire church for your generosity through the Grace Offering.  

Glad to have everyone here this morning to worship and fellowship!
