Spring Into Service
Spring into Service is a three day, joint adventure of five Presbyterian churches from the Dallas area taking place March 11-13. As a group we will learn about food insecurity by working in a variety of community based organizations focused on issues of hunger. Including, making Manna Bags and learning about the Dallas Stew Pot, working in community gardens, food banks, the SoupMobile and worshipping and serving with the Cottages at Hickory Crossing. We encourage you to participate the whole weekend, but if your schedule does not allow – please sign-up for the parts you are available to attend!
