Oak Lawn Community Meal

Serving every Sunday at 5:00 p.m.
Oak Lawn Community Meal is a love commitment to our neighbors who are homeless.  Every Sunday, rain or shine, welcome between 50 and 70 men, women, and children and provide them with a home-cooked meal.  If you have a heart for this type of ministry, we would love to meet you!  You, your family, or small group (e.g., Sunday School class) can volunteer on a one-time or regular basis. Contact Pastor Gregg at (214) 521-5197 ext. 121 or


The Community Clothes Closet

Open Sundays at 5:00 p.m.
On behalf of the neighbors who are hurting in Oak Lawn parish, thank you all for your loving prayers and continued support of your Community Clothes Closet.  Here’s a wonderful tip to help keep the shelves stocked with sorely needed, new or gently-used men’s and women’s pants, (sturdy jeans, corduroy, etc.), shirts, and walkin’ shoes… take that opportunity to clear out some space for your new duds! You can drop off your donations at the reception desk on weekdays during church office hours or on Sundays when you’re here for worship. For more information, contact Pastor Gregg at (214) 521-5197 ext. 121 or
