Here is the list of our upcoming opportunities:
Campamento TX. Mission
Hey, did you hear about the Campamento event at the end of July? 350 – 400 young people were prepared to invade the Greater Cedar Hill area with the Love of Jesus and serve our community in His name! Each year this group of young people has given up an afternoon to serve a community, and this year they have chosen to do that right here in Cedar Hill. We’re excited about this opportunity.
Unfortunately, circumstance beyond our control has required us to POSTPONE this event to another date to be announce. Thank You Campamento! Thank you 350 young people. We know that you are going to do some GREAT THINGS where you go. God Bless you!!!
If you would like more information on Capamento TX, click HERE. The camp is from July 29th – August 2nd, 2019. Prices, location, speakers, it’s all there on the website. If you, or your young adult would like a safe place to finish the summer with purpose and meaning, CHECK THIS OUT!

Mission Cedar Hill’s Annual BIG WEEK!
Wow, Wow and WOW. What a great week! And we couldn’t be prouder of the 80 volunteers that signed up to volunteer in this summer’s Big Week Event. Thursday we got a jump on this years list with a Great Break in the rain we have been living with in North Texas for a while. While we prayed for 72* and a slight breeze, we’ll take 70*and a slight breeze every day! Thank You Lord!er
Saturday it warmed a bit, but it remained bearable. We mowed yards, replaced siding and facia. We tore don and rebuilt fences, cleaned animal kennels, weeded gardens, cleaned windows, and more. We met 16 new home owners, and dozens of new volunteers. We built relationships with old friends and started new ones. We prayed together, worked together, together, sweated together and had fun together.
We worked on 16 different homes and 7 different non-profit locations. Groups fixed soil erosion, re-established walking paths, sorted and priced materials and organized sock rooms. We heard some great stories of overcoming challenges and victories. We learned the importance of Faith and perseverance. We celebrated with home owners over answered prayer, opportunities to give God glory, and to e a witness, a Story Teller of God’s faithfulness in their communities. This year’s Big Week Event was a Big Success
It’s not too late for you to come and personally learn who Mission Cedar Hill is, and What we D.O. (There’s a sermon in there). Go to our “Join Mission Cedar Hill” page, select an event to volunteer at, sign-up, then show up. It’s just about that simple. Go ahead, SIGN-UP! You WILL BE Blessed. You WILL BE a Blessing, and our Community, your neighbor WILL BE better off.
June 6th – 9th, 2019
Every year for the past 17 years we have been gathering Churches, businesses, the City of Cedar Hill, Firefighters, Policemen and Women, Firefighters, High School students and the list goes on and on of volunteers that come together to go love on our neighbors, improving the quality of life not just for them, but for us all. Every Big Week Event is open to the public, and we invite YOU to come join us.
We gather every morning, the 6th – 8th at 101 High Pointe Lane, Cedar Hill, 75104 for our team assignment, tool pick up, and kick off. God calls us together to love on our neighbor, and we ask Him to guide, protect, and send us out in His will, mercy, compassion, and provision.
By signing up HERE online you have the opportunity to fill out, download, and print all the forms needed to volunteer in the Big Week. This greatly helps us plan on the numbers, teams, and skills of our volunteers. It will also greatly speed up the registration process on the work days.
On Sunday, June 9th, we will gather at Virginia Weaver Park and hold the Celebration of Celebrations for another successful Mission Cedar Hill Big Event. And, we will be doing so on a playground that we helped rebuild back in March. Won’t you come join us? You won’t regret it!
April 27th Big Day with Leadership Southwest
On April 27th, we are worked with Leadership Southwest and hosted a Work Day that met the needs of our Cedar Hill neighbors. We were able to replace rotted siding on two houses, prepping them for paint, build a new fence on another, and help out two other non-profits in town with their ministries. Leadership Southwest poured their heat and lives into our community with GREAT results! Thank you Leadership Southwest.
There are NEVER too many hands on a shovel. Trust us, we’ll put you to work, because YOU are needed. This Big Day included both inside and outside work. We had 3 homes to re-side, two homes to rebuild fences on, and two non-profits needing shelving and organization help. So there is still some work to do. Keep checking back, we will find a place and time to help YOU serve your neighbor.
So whether you are 10 or 100, a skilled carpenter or good organizer, you need to sign up. Leadership Southwest Personnel, see your web site and your sign up sheet. ALL OTHERS will need to sign up here, online, or in person on the day of the event. So we ask you PLEASE, save us and you some time and SIGN – Up HERE.
Virginia Weaver Park Project
Hey, have you heard about the Virginia Weaver Park Playground Project? The City of Cedar Hill with its Parks and Recreation Department along with Mission Cedar Hill we are looking for volunteers to help build a NEW PLAYGROUND at the Virginia Weaver Park. The Park is located at 631 Somerset Dr., just north of Tidwell, in between S. Clark Road and S Hwy 67, right behind WS Permenter Middle School.
You can always find the latest information about this project on the City’s web site at www.cedarhilltx.com . You can even have a permanent place in the playground by making a donation for a new picket at the playground by clicking HERE.
Mission Cedar Hill was tasked with filling 1,800 volunteers positions ti help the City in this project. 1,800, that is A LOT of people. While we fell short of reaching this number, we were amazed with the generosity and commitment of hundreds of our neighbors, friends and family.
We had volunteers that flew in from Arizona and Colorado just to help us on this project. We pray and believe that God will reward their generous contribution. We had schools and churches, businesses and boards show up in the cold drizzle that fell most of the work days. Day and night, hundreds came to lend a hand in building our future.
“The Old is gone, behold all things become new.” While this Scripture in 2 Corinthians 5:17 is speaking specifically of the lives of those who has chosen to walk with God, it applies also to everything we do. The GWT says it this way, “the old way of living has disappeared, A new way of living has come into existence.”
And so it is with the playground at Virginia Weaver, Hilltop, Community Park, the many names you may remember it by. But it is so much more than a playground. A community got together to build it back then, and a NEW community came together and built the new one now.
While this project may be over you can go to our Join Mission Cedar Hill page and sign up for more information on additional projects in our future. You can sign-up to get more information on helping with future Mission Cedar Hill projects HERE, or donate to our cause by clicking HERE, or customize your own personal Picket at the Playground HERE.
Christmas Cedar Hill
Thank you for a great day!
This year Mission Cedar Hill joined with the Cedar Hill ISD to bless hundreds of Scholars (children) in our community. Based on the recommendation of CHISD counselors, principles and administrators, Christmas Cedar Hill is helping needing families with Christmas gifts.
MCH helped with the logistics of the gift collection and distribution. YOU will be able to help next year by providing a NEW unwrapped gift for a Scholar boy or girl, grades K – 5. Scholars 6-12th grades will be blessed with gift cards. Of course there re opportunities to help a whole lot closer than next Christmas.
November, 2018 Big Day
We just completed our last Big Day. Here’s how a Big day plays out. Keep coming back to find our next Big Day. We’re building toward one in April, 2019, and we are certain for June. Let’s keep looking. Contact us to develop a Big Day for your group.
We will meet at High Pointe Baptist Church 101 High Pointe Lane, Cedar Hill promptly at 8:00 AM. There, we will receive our teams, assignments, and tools. From there we will go to our assigned locations until 12 noon at which we will meet at “Sam’s Pizza & Pasta here in Cedar Hill. Lunch is Provided by MCH.
At 1:00 PM, you are back at your assigned job sights until 4:30, or its completion. At this time we will all return to the High Pointe location for reports, tool return, and Personnel pick-up. Working the entire 8 hours is not required, but it sure makes scheduling teams and task a lot easier. If you cannot work all day, just let us know and we will make the adjustments needed. We’d rather have you than miss you.
