Find Your Spot

We believe that God is at work in the community and rather than reinventing the wheel, we aim to partner well with local mission agencies and non-profits. We do our best to keep a running list of local organizations and their service needs. Below is a glimpse of local mission opportunities and organizations. Contact Rev. Chris O'Riley at chriso@tmumc.org to discover even more places to serve.

Not sure where you want to serve? Take our Gifted to Serve Discovery and we'll help you find your spot to serve others that ignites your passions.


 

Trietsch Missions

Mission projects organized and led by members of Trietsch

military care

Military Support

Multiple times a year we send Military Care Packages overseas to remind soldiers that they are loved. Packages include food, hygiene items, drink mixes, and little gifts. Check back here for updates on care package needs. 

If you have a soldier that you want to support, send names and addresses of soldiers (don’t need to belong to Trietsch) to Heather Dotson at hadotson5@gmail.com

MAD for Jesus

The annual MAD for Jesus Camp focuses on giving 150-200 children, grades 1-8, of the Wesley-Rankin Community Center in West Dallas, access to Music, Art, Drama and Dance.

This camp is held at Trietsch every summer and adult volunteers are needed to share God’s love with these precious children, primarily shepherding them from activity to activity around our campus. Camp is 10 am to 2 pm all 4 days (arrive 30 minutes prior). We need you as many days as you can serve, so sign up for as many days as you are able. Childcare will be available. No fine arts talent required, just a love for Jesus!

Email Pam Taylor at taylorpk@aol.com to get involved.

heart ties quilters

Heart Ties Quilters

Heart Ties Quilting Mission is dedicated to spreading God's love through the gift of handmade quilts to individuals in care facilities in Texas and Oklahoma. Heart Ties produces 200-300 quilts of various sizes each year. 

We meet on the 1st & 3rd Tuesdays from 9 am to noon in Room 115. You don't need to be able to sew to help with our mission. We need people to tie, sort and wash fabric, cut the thousands of squares we use, assemble quilt kits and deliver finished quilts to the recipients. Most of the work on the quilts can be done at home at your own convenience.

For more information please email Diane Preston or call her at 405-615-3856. Diane is happy to deliver and pick up your work or donations anytime.

project transformation

Project Transformation

Project Transformation engages young adults in purposeful leadership in ministry, supports under-served children and families and connects churches with communities in need. They do all of this by remembering their three C's: Children, College students and Churches. Since their founding in 1998, this ministry has been addressing three unique challenges with one program: the academic, physical and spiritual needs of children living in low-income communities. They also provide meaningful ministry and leadership exploration for college students and revitalize struggling urban churches.

epiphany

Epiphany Prison Ministry

Epiphany is a Christian outreach program for incarcerated youth nationally. Our local community serves the young men at the Gainesville State School. It is similar to The Walk to Emmaus but tailored to the youth offender. Epiphany Weekends are held only twice a year, in January and July. At that time, up to 36 young men are allowed to spend three days in a loving Christian environment with music, worship, prayer, eight different talks about the Christian life, discussion, skits, music, recreation and "free world" food.
