Missions

Missions Matters
Royal Lane has a long history of answering God’s call to love through service. “Missions Matters” will appear in the Mosaic on a regular basis. It will highlight our continuing commitment to missions and other matters where we reach out to the community. This will be a place where we will tell our stories and perhaps help you find what “matters” most to you.

“Second Fridays” at NDSM

Posted: December 11th, 2018, 9:48 am

“Second Fridays” is our new volunteer ministry where we send 5 volunteers to North Dallas Shared Ministries on that day each month.  North Dallas Shared Ministries provides food, clothing, financial support, and dental and vision health services to our neighbors in North Dallas.   We will work to help fill food and clothing orders from 10-11:30 am.  We have all of 2019 on the sign-up, so look ahead and see when you may be able to help.

The Gathering

Posted: October 2nd, 2011, 3:01 pm

Royal Lane is a Covenant Congregation of North Dallas Shared Ministries.

Since the first Sunday of each month is time for Communion at Royal Lane, what better time to think of others in need. As we prepare to partake of The Lord’s Supper, let us also think of sharing food and household needs with our neighbors.

On the first Sunday of each month, bring what you can and place in the marked baskets either in the Narthex , the Sunday school rooms, or by the desk Family Hall. While the focus is on the first Sunday, you can drop off items any time during the month in the donations room in Family Hall.

Each quarter, our congregation will focus on a few foods to donate to North Dallas Shared Ministries.  As always, any food and clothing donations will be appreciated, but we will try to bring more of these most needed items.  NDSM cannot accept donations in glass containers.

We would also like to provide bags for the families to use as they take their clothing and shoes home.  NDSM is asking for department store bags, paper or plastic, preferably with handles.  They will also take any reusable shopping bags.
