Engaging in the mission of God not only involves going to the ends of the earth, but it begins right here in North Fort Worth. This is why we feel that every member in the church should be on mission in our own community as we commit to evangelism and discipleship among all peoples. We believe that if we are faithful in our witness then North fort worth will be impacted by us being here and loving our neighbors.
Below you will find various ways to join our church family as we serve our community.
GOOD NEWS CLUB
Good News Club meets on Tuesdays at Schluter Elementary School, during the school year.
What is Good News Club? Good News Club® is a ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship in which trained teachers meet with groups of children in schools, homes, community centers, churches, apartment complexes, just about anywhere the children can easily and safely meet with their parent’s permission. Each week the teacher presents an exciting Bible lesson using colorful materials from CEF Press. This action-packed time also includes songs, Scripture memory, a missions story and review games or other activities focused on the lesson’s theme.
As with all CEF ministries, the purpose of Good News Club is to evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and establish (disciple) them in the Word of God and in a local church for Christian living.
Every October, Love Loud provides church members with the opportunity to be the hands and feet of the body of Christ as we seek to serve and love on our surrounding community. Bible Fellowship Groups take on projects that fit the skills and abilities of their members and look for ways to provide services to those in need. In years past, projects have included landscaping work for schools and individual homes, maintenance and cleaning for houses, and writing letters of encouragement to local law enforcement and first responders.
While Love Loud is an intentional effort to serve the community, the ultimate driving force behind it is an opportunity to share the good news of Jesus Christ. The gospel speaks to the inability of man to help himself, enslaved and dead to the sin of his heart. But in his great love for us, God sent his Son to die in our place, saving the hopeless. In the same way, we seek to take the message of the gospel to our community by helping those who can’t help themselves and opening doors for relationships and conversations about the God who saves.

CORNERSTONE ASSISTANCE NETWORK
Cornerstone Assistance Network (CAN) believes that life change happens in relationship; first, in a relationship with Jesus Christ, then in relationship with others. Their aim is to connect each of the men and women in their programs to mentors who will serve as encouragers as they work toward lasting life change.
Every year, close to 700 individual volunteers give over 20,000 hours serving in a variety of capacities at Cornerstone. Volunteers serve in every area of their building from receptionists to medical doctors, from thrift store associates to GED tutors. They have volunteers who sort cans in the food pantry; teach classes in the Christian Women’s Job Corp; mentor participants in their housing, reentry, and other case management programs; direct the ESL Program; lead the Senior Adult Bible Study; and keep them organized in Administrative areas. Cornerstone also serves as an AmeriCorps VISTA and Senior Corps RSVP sponsor. Both programs offer numerous volunteer opportunities with benefits.
