Share your day by tagging #GOandBe2022
Sign up for an Anchor Project at our GO & BE tables in the atrium.
Feed My Starving Children
Feed My Starving Children seeks to eliminate physical and spiritual childhood hunger worldwide. FMSC relies on volunteers of all ages by helping prepare hand-packed nutritious MannaPack™ meals specifically designed to assist in reversing and preventing under nutrition (https://www.fmsc.org/about-us).
How you can help:
You can volunteer! Dallas Bible is looking for individuals to meet at a packing center nearby to help assemble meals. This event is great for life-groups, friends, and families (ages 5 & up).
Community Give Away
CGA is a DBC staple. Each year, we bless our community by providing free furniture and household items for anyone who has a need. By transforming our back parking lot and youth building, we create a space where our neighbors can gather, receive donated items, and connect with our congregation.
You can volunteer for one of two shifts. We will need men, women, and children to load out the donations and setup, assit with shoppers, load trucks, and help guests. We'll also have a few activities for families to do together.
Our DBC Food Pantry provides supplemental food for families in need in our surrounding neighborhood. Help support this project by brining in requested items during the month of April. Sign up to volunteer the day of GO & BE to help sort and pack items donated during the month.
Circle 1 is a DBC ministry that supports our local apartment children through a weekly afterschool gathering. Volunteers will be connecting with these families through a Sunday Brunch, games, and relationship building.
Site Project Beautification
Get a little dirty but make a big difference by volunteering to clean-up and beautify a local school, park, and/or family home.
Poiema Sex Trafficking Outreach
Poiema is a Texas-based Christian non-profit that educates the public and raises awareness in order to prevent sexual abuse, sex trafficking, and other methods of sexual exploitation. Poiema also provide a safe place including trauma-informed care for those who have been trafficked and are on their journey from victim to survivor (https://poiemafoundation.org/about-poiema).
Volunteers will (alongside of Poiema leadership) drive specific routes to hotels, nail salons, tattoo parlors, massage parlors in the Dallas area, looking for minors who are missing and could potentially be victims of sex trafficking. Volunteers will enter establishments and provide information about missing children and report any suspicious activity to the detective team at Poiema (for the safety of our volunteers, we ask that all involved attend a training seminar hosted by Poiema on DBC's campus.
Once you sign up for a project, specific project details, instructions and Project Leadership contact information will be emailed to you.
Is there Childcare?
Yes! Childcare will be provided for children 6 months up to 3 years old at Dallas Bible Church from 8:30am till 12:30pm. Please email [email protected] to RSVP.
We also encourage families to serve together where possible.
Where do we sign-up?
Since not all sign-ups are uniform we have opted to simply use a paper version at our Go & Be tables in the Atrium of Dallas Bible Church.
What if I can't attend but want to help?
Our Food Pantry anchor project is designed for you. Starting April 3rd, you can bring in needed non-perishable items. You can find a list of items at our Go & Be tables, or near the Food Pantry area. You will be able to drop them off at Dallas Bible Mon-Fri 9am-4pm or Sun 9am-Noon.
Are the projects at Dallas Bible?
Some projects are on-site, while others are on location with our partnering agencies. Event day details will be emailed to you beginning April 26th.
Do I have to be in a Life Group to participate?
NO. All of our projects you can participate in as an individual or family.
Can we do our own project?
Yes! Grab some friends or family and GO+BE the church. We definitely would like know about what project you or your group is participating in, so please update Jeff Mousa if there is a way in which we can support YOUR project.
What should I bring?
You will receive Anchor Project details via email with instructions for your site from the project leader. Plan on bringing any personal items you may need, like sunscreen, drinking water, tennis shoes, a hat, etc., along with any items pertaining to your service project such as rakes, gloves, lawnmowers, tarps, work tools, etc. For projects requiring physical labor, work clothes are a good idea. We recommend not wearing jewelry.
What if it rains?
Some of our projects will have to cancel or get creative in how to show love to our community. Others are already inside.

The vision of GO+BE is for us, the local church, to go into our communities and love our neighbors. Through these acts of service, we hope people’s hearts will be opened to the love of Jesus. You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Galatians 5:13-14
