Missions & Community Engagement

And the king will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” - Matthew 25:40

"Children First" School Partnerships

Our partnerships with Mark Twain Elementary and Greenwood Hills Elementary in Richardson ISD provide opportunities to make a difference in the lives of children in our community. But that doesn't capture the joy and wonder of connecting with these kids. Whether reading with them, joining them for Buddy Fun Day, or celebrating the hard work of the staff at their schools, it never fails to put smiles on our faces as we participate in their educational journey.
