Outreach and community service are cornerstone support activities at First Christian Church Rockwall. Monthly projects and collections benefit many local and national service organizations.
Some of the local and national organizations we help support are:
- Rockwall Helping Hands
- Rockwall Habitat for Humanity
- The Rainbow Room
- Boys and Girls Club
- Women In Need
- Meals on Wheels
- Coventry Reserve in Wylie
- Patriot Paws
- The Heifer International Project
- Week of Compassion – supporting Disciples of Christ global outreach in aid for crises in the cases of tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes, food shortages, and aid to drought-stricken areas. For further information on this ministry, please go to www.weekofcompassion.org.
We also partner with other local organizations to provide and serve a Thanksgiving Meal to nearly 500 people in Rockwall.
2016 will be our eleventh year to present a LIVING NATIVITY in December. This simple telling of the Christmas Story, with costumes and animals, has grown each year. It is presented four or five times over two hours, so that crowds can come and go. 550 people came through last year.
The following pictures are from various outreach activities over the past couple of years: Community Garden, Vacation Bible School, Thanksgiving Meal, Coat Give-Away, Shoe Collection, Living Nativity, Service at various local organizations, Mission Trips.
