Your Missions Division is excited to announce the return of The Gathering, our food drive which benefits the food pantry at North Dallas Shared Ministries. We are collecting these four food items during various church seasons of the year:
Macaroni and Cheese
Bring your items Sunday mornings or Wednesday evenings, we will have collection boxes in the Narthex and in Vickrey Hall throughout Lent. Thank you for making a difference for our beloved community!
Easter Baskets for Hope Supply
Please help us gather treats and toys to fill Easter Baskets for Hope Supply, who provides diapers and formula for families experiencing homelessness in DFW. We have created an Amazon wish list for those who prefer online shopping, or you can shop and bring your items before March 15th. more information>
Healing Hands Ministries welcomes every neighbor with barrier-free access to healthcare. On March 16th, HHM fully activated their emergency preparedness plan. The crisis call team has answered more than 17,000 calls and they have launched a tele-health model with 300 completed clinical visits in the first two weeks of launch. They continue to care for one of the most vulnerable populations in our community - mothers and babies.
CitySquare set up an Emergency Relief Fund to cover critical, unexpected costs associated with caring for our neighbors during this crisis. We continue to serve our neighbors through key services: the Food Pantry meets our neighbors' basic food needs, the Dallas Connector provides free, essential transportation for homeless neighbors, and the Transition Resource Action Center's (TRAC) Dallas office is open as an Emergency Resource Center for Homeless Youth, including food and social support. We were already serving a record number of neighbors annually, and with the economic/employment impact of COVID-19, service demand has increased again.

Royal Lane has a long history of answering God's call to love through service. "Missions Matters" will appear in the Mosaic and will be published on our blog below on a regular basis. It will highlight our continuing commitment to missions and other activities 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.
Many members of our congregation are active volunteers in diverse areas within the community. If you would like to share your volunteer story or information about an organization you support with our congregations, please fill out the form below.
