Why Giving and Generosity?
Seek First the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness
31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. —Matthew 6:31–33
God will take care of you. He knows what you need; He knows what tomorrow holds, and He loves you very much. His promise of provision has given you the freedom to take self-preservation off the throne of your life and instead focus on the kingdom of God. When you do that, you trade anxiety for peace. Days previously weighed down with the pressure of self-reliance are exchanged for confident enthusiasm over what the Lord will do next.
Thank You for supplying all my needs. I commit today to Your Kingdom and Your purposes in my life. I want to be a part of what You’re doing in my church and community; please use me. I trust You with my today and tomorrow.
Offer a prayer of thanksgiving before your dinner this evening. Whether eating with family, friends or alone, declare God’s goodness out loud, praise Him for His great love, and thank Him for His provision. Ask Him for the courage to sacrifice for the kingdom, knowing He will always supply your every need. Pray for the success of the PROCLAIM initiative.

As believers, we are called to give of our talents – not only financially, but also our spiritual gifting through volunteering. We have safe and secure ways to give and opportunities to bless others through legacy giving, and a myriad of volunteer opportunities.
Simple and secure. Give a single gift, or schedule recurring giving using your checking account, debit, or credit card.
Prestonwood offers many ways to use your gifts and talents in serving others – from cameraman to choir member, technician to teacher, parking attendant to prayer warrior. Click here to find out more.
Besides opportunities to watch services, we’re pleased to provide a variety of incredible opportunities to plug in to resources for young believers and mature Christians.

We want to help men, women and students recover from emotional, physical, relational and spiritual wounds through the power of Christ. Through classes, small groups and individual discipleship, the Life Recovery Ministry will help people pursue, overtake, and recover a life of peace and purpose.
We are a dynamic congregation, with people from all over the North Texas region who have come together for a common purpose—to study God’s Word, to worship Him, to do His work, and to reach the world with the Gospel message.
We unapologetically value six core areas in the life of our church. Together, these shared values identify who we are, rally us toward all that we desire to accomplish, and unite us in fellowship.
The most important decision in your life will be whether you accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior.
No matter which campus you attend, you’ll find warm smiles to greet you; vibrant, worshipful music to lift your soul; and powerful teaching from God’s Word that will transform your life.
You’ll feel welcome from the very beginning of your visit to Prestonwood. We have something for everyone in your family so let us help you plan your first visit.
