Are you looking to make a difference? Do you have an hour to spare? There are opportunities to serve throughout our church. Greeters, ushers, Lay Eucharistic Ministers, Christian Formation leaders for youth and children, volunteering in the office throughout the week, the sound team, and so much more.
We strongly believe that God wants to use your personal gifts and talents to expand His kingdom. Below are some of the wonderful ways you can enrich your own life and the lives of others.
A strong component of our mission outreach is partnering with non-profits and churches to serve our brothers and sisters in Christ. We officially support many local and national partners financially and through our service. Check out some of our Mission Partners to see how you can get involved.
Members of Annunciation gather on the first Thursday of the month to prepare and then serve dinner to approximately 400 men, women, and children who have found themselves homeless in the Dallas area. They also assist in providing vital needs such as toiletries, clothing, and blankets.

Annunciation participates in several local mission opportunities with CCA each year. Some of those include: Kids Eat Free, Holiday Food Drives, Clothing Drives, and Food Pantry Donations.
We partner with the Children’s Advocacy Center to help supplement their resources available to the children in their care. We collect books for their library, as well as art supplies for the children to use either in therapy or to inspire their creativity.
We enjoy a unique partnership with Lakeland Elementary centered upon serving and supporting the teachers and staff as they serve a population of children in need. Once a month throughout the school year, we reach out to them in a variety of ways, which include providing lunch, giving gift cards, offering our prayers during testing, and participating in their Fireside Reading Program.
Once a year, we collect used towels and bedding, as well as food for the animals in the care of Lewisville Animal Services.
Annunciation partners with PediPlace in helping them to achieve their mission to provide healthcare to those in need. We collect diapers and other items for their “Newborn Bags,” as well as participating in facilities improvements as the needs are identified.
Soles4Souls is a global organization whose primary mission is to provide shoes for those who have none. Once a year, we participate in Soles4Souls Sunday, donating hundreds of pairs of shoes to help them further their work in developing countries around the world.
Annunciation is the currently only church in our community that provides sack lunches for guests of The Salvation Army who cannot stay for, or misses, the noon meal. Several members regularly volunteer, and continue to raise up opportunities for partnership.
Each year the congregation is asked to donate gifts from our Angel Tree which are distributed to both local children in need, as well as the children from Navajoland. Please keep an eye open for this meaningful service opportunity in November and December.
Just before school begins, we collect school supplies for local children in need.
Every Christmas, we collect gifts to be distributed both to our mission partners in Navajoland, and to children identified through the LISD Communities in Schools program. It is a wonderful way to share the blessings we have been given and remember the true Spirit of the season.
The Little Free Library (LFL) is a small repository of books available to anyone in our community. It works on the take-a-book-leave-a-book honor system. Ours is one of thousands springing up all over the US.
Member of the Youth Group, in conjunction with adults from the congregation, meet to put together bags of non-perishable food items that are distributed by the Salvation Army to those in need in Lewisville.
Neighbors Leading Neighbors is a program developed recently by the City of Lewisville to partner local churches with the elderly and those who are disabled, who need assistance in caring for their property. Several times a year a team of members go to a house to do yard work, or general clean up, in order to be a good neighbor to those in need.
Each Thanksgiving, Annunciation collects snacks, fruit, and personal items that we then place in baskets to give to each fire station and police station in Lewisville, Flower Mound and Highland Village as a way of saying thanks for their service to our community. In 2015, we also began collecting sweatpants and sweatshirts at the request of the Lewisville Police Department for them to give to anyone who might need clothing due to losing their own in a fire, or because they had to leave their home quickly for safety reasons.
People of all ages are invited to find the trip that best meets their needs and help us to impact the world for Christ.
Since 1983 Annunciation has been partners with The Episcopal Church in Navajoland, in the Utah Region. Teams of 20 to 25 parishioners travel to Bluff, Utah to offer Vacation Bible School to approximately 100 children at two area churches, perform maintenance on the church campuses and in homes, and at times tutor children in academic skills. Team members have ranged from ages six to eighty. It is a very rewarding mission trip for the whole family.
This mission primer is open to all fourth and fifth grade students who would like to learn more about serving on a mission team, without spending the night away from home. This is a three-day event during the summer where the students serve both on and off Annunciation's campus as the hands, feet and heart of Christ in our community.
This mission experience is open to all sixth through eighth grade students who are ready to take the next step in serving on a mission team. Students and their adult leaders are together for four days and three nights, staying on campus, serving in the community, and spreading the love of Christ to all those in need.
The High School Mission Trip is open to all high school students who are active in EYC. This team frequently travels to other states to help where it is needed most. Recent trips have included Oklahoma to help with recovery efforts after the tornados, Galveston to assist with hurricane recovery efforts, Colorado to assist members of an Episcopal church in establishing an outdoor prayer garden for the community, and New Orleans to serve the people in need.
