Vickery Kids Club
Impact: Kids. Each week during the school year at Vickery Kids Club, a small, committed team of Watermark volunteers shares the love of God with inner-city and refugee kids in the Vickery Meadow neighborhood near Lake Highlands. Lead a group or simply sit in for a Bible study and crafts with the kids.
Impact: Poverty. Welcome Home hosts the homeless men and women of Dallas, right here at Watermark, every weekend. They pick up these men and women to help them attend worship services – and build discipling relationships with them. Volunteers can help with pickup, providing meals after worship services, and discipling.
