Weekend Services Update:
With the recent surge of COVID-19 cases in our state, Preston Trail has made the decision to move our weekend gatherings to online only. While we place tremendous value on gathering in person, we must also prioritize the health and safety of our church family and our community at large. We're grateful for the technology that allows us to gather online in this unprecedented time, and invite you to join us in praying for wisdom as we move forward into uncharted territory, guided by these five principles:
- Care: (1 Peter 5:2) We are called to shepherd the flock entrusted to us; to feed, lead and protect them well.
- Comply: (Romans 13:1) We are relying on the recommendations of our state, county and city governments’ public health departments.
- Adjust: (Ephesians 5:16-17) This situation is unprecedented and quickly changing, and we will remain flexible as we seek to wisely adjust.
- Accomplish: (Galatians 6:9) Although our situation has changed, our mission stays the same: Helping people find and follow Jesus Christ.
- Learn: (Proverbs 15:22) We are seeking input from many advisors, knowing “plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisors they succeed.”
Worship with us online this weekend at prestontrail.org/live or through the Preston Trail app for your phone or smart TV.

So many people are hurting right now. How can we help?
Be a good neighbor during this time of crisis. Our local partners are working hard to supply those those in need with non-perishable food items, diapers, formula and wipes. If you are interested in donating, please directly contact one of our partners to find out how to make a monetary donation. Check out this page to join our Good Neighbor team.
As this unique and unexpected season creates hardship for many within our church family as well as our community, we encourage those who are able to give generously, so the needs of those in crisis may be met. As the Apostle Paul says in 2 Corinthians 8:14, "At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need."
General Ministry Fund: This is the fund that fuels the engine of our mission on a daily, ongoing basis.
Benevolence Fund: This fund supports the unusual, short-term financial needs of our Preston Trail family and North Texas neighbors that cannot otherwise be met due to circumstances like job loss or health issues, and issues specifically related to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
