The Hope Center is a ministry of Cross Timbers Church. Our goal is to pour hope into our city by meeting needs and equipping others to share the hope.

Ways you can give hope

Would you like to encourage others through the hope that you've been given in Jesus? We have many opportunities to get involved at The Hope Center, and we would love for you to be involved in transforming the city of Denton by sharing that hope with others.


Since schools have closed, many working parents are left without options for childcare. We are partnering with Grace Like Rain to provide classrooms and volunteers to help with childcare for ages 3-11 yrs between the hours of 7am and 5:30pm. If you would like to help with childcare or meals and snacks for the kids, please sign up using the link below.


Many children who were on the free/reduced lunch program will need healthy meals while out of school. We are partnering with Lovepacs to provide food and volunteers to feed school aged children. We will need food donations and people to put together the snack packs for the kids. We will also need people to deliver the food. Learn more about the specific food needs at the link below.
