Serving Others


At Christ United, serving others is second only to loving God. We invite you to share your gifts and talents with those in need and be part of our transformational ministries. The life transformed may just be your own.

We offer an abundance of opportunities to serve others at Christ United. To expedite your search, we broke our ministries up into the following four categories based on the area of need that they address.

POST STORM IMMEDIATE NEEDS:

Looking ahead, our neighbors who are homeless have been hunkered down or sleeping in the Plano Overnight Warming Station for the past six to ten nights and they’ll be looking for fresh clothes. We will need less heavy coats and more layers.

Since our church has some water damage and we can not safely collect items there, we are once again opening our “grassroots style collection” sites for items needed for our neighbors who are homeless. Collection bins will be on thier front porches – so please just leave the items in the bin. Home owners will check bins periodically.

Items needed:

  • Dark socks
  • Men’s underwear
  • Long sleeve shirts
  • Men’s sweat pants
  • (All clothing items need to be new)
  • Protein based food (pre-cooked and easily eaten)
  • Snack packs
  • Baby wipes (5-10 wipes in ziplock bags)

Drop off sites:

  • 4629 Putnam Drive, Plano
  • 2516 Antlers Court, Plano 75025
  • 5017 Hummingbird Lane, Plano
  • 8804 Tanglewood Drive, McKinney 75074
  • 1404 Scarborough, Plano 75075

Or, you can drop them off at the Day labor Center (805 Ozark Dr, Plano, TX 75074) on Mondays or Thursdays at 7:30am. Please share these needs and drop off locations with your friends and neighbors. Donations will be distributed through the Day Labor Project on Monday and Thursday mornings.

If you have any questions, please reach out to jana@cumc.com
