Prestonwood Cares Serve Saturday

Prestonwood Cares Serve Saturday is a community-wide day of service held several times each year to support ministries and be the hands and feet of Jesus across North Texas. Since its inception in 2017, more than 10,000 people have served with Prestonwood Cares Serve Saturday outreaches.

By partnering with like-minded community organizations, each embedded in respective communities and specific ministry areas, Prestonwood is committed to sharing the hope of Jesus Christ through serving those who need help.

Prestonwood is blessed to have a community that seeks to reach others beyond our physical campuses. Taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ into the North Texas community, whether to our own neighborhood or to an inner-city community in which we serve, is the fulfillment of our commitment to advance the Great Commission.
