We encourage each person to look for ways to get involved in ministry outside the church walls. God gives each of us great opportunities to make a difference in the lives of people right where we live, work, shop and play. If you (and your family) are looking for a place to serve, consider one of the opportunities below.
Water’s Edge has an exciting calendar of events coming up that will enable us to touch the lives of people in North Texas and around the world.
JUNE & JULY: Shoe Drive and SERVICE DAY for Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls
Throughout the months of June and July, bring in your shoe donations for Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls. Please purchase new athletic-type shoes in sizes YOUTH 1 – ADULT 12. Collection boxes will be in our church entryway for the duration of the drive.
SERVICE DAY – AUGUST 5
On Saturday, August 5th, take your family on a trip to the warehouse to process, sort and pack shoes at Buckner Center for Humanitarian Aid (5404 Shoe Drive, Mesquite). There are two different shifts to choose from: 9:00-11:00 a.m. or 1:00-3:00 p.m.
When you donate new shoes through Buckner, they will be received by the world’s most vulnerable children. And while Shoes for Orphan Souls serves children all over the world, 30 percent of shoes stay in the United States, offering hope to children in communities close to ours.
