Thousands of PCBC volunteers will spread out across Dallas throughout the month of April, to serve others demonstrate Christ's love.
1:8 Day provides PCBC members the opportunity to perform acts of compassion, build relationships, share their faith and disciple others. In 2013, over 1,000 PCBC members blessed the city of Dallas through 14 different projects. Come join us in 2014 and be a part of a church on the move. Check PCBC.org for the latest information on projects.
Every volunteer must pre-register for 1:8 Day 2014. Register on-line beginning Sunday, March 2, 2014. Space is limited at some projects. Once you have registered, you will receive specific instructions and information about the project from a team leader.
This year we are requiring all of our volunteers to purchase an Acts 1:8 T-shirt for $6.00. This helps to create a visual presence in the city when we go out to serve, and also is a conversation starter that gives each volunteer the opportunity to share the good news of Jesus to the community. T-shirts can be purchased by through an online email that will be sent after registration or with cash or check when they are picked up at the "Mission Possible" Training Night on March 23rd.
Questions? Contact Cali McQueen in the Missions Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 214.860.1526.
Please check back frequently as projects are added and information is updated.
