Matthew Road is involved in a variety of local ministries through the giving of time, money, supplies and encouragement. We support Mission Arlington and Mission Grand Praiire. We partner with the Pregnancy Resource Center of Grand Prairie. We are involved with a church plant near downtown Fort Worth. We host our fall festival as a ministry to the community. We also invite all the children of our community to join us every year for Vacation Bible School. In addition to these things, we have hosted backyard Bible clubs and block parties. One of our most extensive involvements have been to help with a local ministry that supports women and children in crisis. All of these things are done in order to present Jesus Christ as the Savior of the world to our community and to build up the families in our community.
On Thanksgiving day the Mission Arlington® family delivers turkeys, turkey baskets and hot meals to over 6,000 people in need. We will post more information about our participation in November.
