MONTHLY MISSION OPPORTUNITIES
Every month we come together to Serve around North Texas. Some projects are open to families serving together, and others are limited to adults only. If your next step is serving others, join us in one of our upcoming projects listed below.

OUTREACH TEAMS | Sundays | 5pm | C136
We are creating teams of church members that want to take a hands-on role in reaching the community around us and the community where they live. Meetings held weekly.

LOVE LOCAL | METRO RELIEF BUS | Saturday | July 27 | 8am-Noon

Metro Relief Bus is a homeless outreach organization that specializes in deep relationships with those on the streets in an attempt to point them to Jesus and provide resources to help them get back on their feet.

BACKPACK ASSEMBLY | August 3 | 9am-Noon
After all the supplies have been gathered and sorted, we need a team of volunteers to come put together bags so that they are easy for families to pick up. We'll have tables set up in the Lobby to make assembling easy for all ages. Once all the bags are ready, we will pray over the bags, that they may be a blessing to the families receiving them.

SERVING RICHARDSON: HUNGER

Hunger is a very real issue for too many children in our own community. Join us as we reflect the light of God’s goodness to families in our community.

COMMUNITY GARDEN
FBR community garden has 24 raised garden plots, with 14 that are available for renting for growing your own produce. The other 10 plots are managed by volunteers and the harvest is given to local Richardson families in need through our hunger initiative partnerships. The garden also offers free quarterly gardening classes and has workdays on the third Saturday of the month at 9 am. For information, email garden@fbrichardson.org

FOOD FOR FAMILIES
On the second Saturday of each month, our Food for Families team picks ups food from Crossroads Community Services, sorts it on church campus, and receives families struggling with hunger needs as they pick up their personalized, nutritionally balanced, food. Normally, we provide 7 days of food for every month.

SERVING RICHARDSON: STUDENTS

Seeking to make a redemptive impact in the lives of the underprivileged, we ask you to join with us in being the face of Jesus and our church to local students.

NORTHRICH ELEMENTARY AND JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL
For a 25 minute lunch a week, your time with a student can restore a child's vision of themselves.

UTD FRIENDSHIP PARTNERS
Most of UTD International students desire to experience American culture, but never do. Help introduce students to our culture...and to Jesus.

UTD BSM INTERNATIONAL LUNCH
For 1.5 hours every other week, you can join the BSM lunch. Most international students are open to discussing realities of different faiths. Get involved in 1 of 3 ways with this lunch:

  1. Table Leader: Sit at the same table with 4 or 5 of the same students. No "required" led-discussion...just conversation.
  2. Front Desk: Help Table Leaders get to the right table. Receive and greet students.
  3. Food Server: Help serve food.
