3C Allen is a local organization focused on Connecting, Coordinating and Caring for those in need in Allen. Their purpose help Allen area churches channel their resources of funds, time and people into the community. 3C Allen coordinates several community events: Adopt a School, Back to School Event, Clothez4KIDZ, and Change the World.
Change the World
Change the World is a community-wide, family oriented service weekend held every year in May. In 2016, Greenville Oaks had the opportunity to join other churches, businesses and organizations in Allen to work on a variety of service projects in Collin County. Service projects ranged from yard work and cleaning gutters to minor home repair and painting a fence. We look forward to participating in Change the World 2017.
Local School Outreach
Our church building is located less than a mile from Boyd Elementary, and we are seeking to love our neighbors by partnering with Boyd to care for students, families and teachers. Some of the ways God has opened the door for us to partner with Boyd include:
Flu Shots – For the last several years, Boyd Elementary asked Greenville Oaks to participate in their annual Community Fair by providing flu shots to the students and their families who attended the fair.
Spring Break and Summer Lunches – Each week of the Summer, a church in Allen takes lunch to the park behind Boyd Elementary to substitute the free and reduced lunch that many of the families who live nearby rely on during the school year. The Greenville Oaks Student Ministry has been serving lunches once a week during the Summer for many years and now provides lunches during Spring Break as well. This opportunity to serve a meal has led to relationships with many of our neighborhood kids.
