Transform 2015

Transform is a gospel-centered service event at our Dallas Northway campus. We come alongside teachers and families to provide essentials for the new school year and engage our community with the gospel.

Topics: Community | The Village Church | Discipleship

Transform is an annual event at our Dallas Northway campus that is a wonderful opportunity for gospel-centered service, the overflow of discipleship. Hosted just before the new school year begins, volunteers help the staff and teachers of Thomas Jefferson High School and Cary Middle School prep for the year. We also provide free backpacks filled with school supplies, first-aid kits, haircuts, family portraits and other services to community members. Families are engaged with the gospel when they attend Transform, and our hope is that they see our love for Christ as the motivation for our actions.
