Our Community Partners share our space. We open our doors to the community for it to use for all types of events. We have many attractive and reasonably priced spaces appropriate for a wide variety of uses: community group meetings, business gatherings, receptions, concerts, recitals, meditation groups, workshops, educational classes and, of course, weddings, wedding receptions and rehearsal dinners, just to name a few. Please contact the church office for availability, reservations and pricing.
Dallas County Master Gardeners & The Raincatcher’s Garden at MHCC
Volunteers with the Dallas County Master Gardeners joined with Midway Hills Christian Church in 2014. The Raincatcher’s Garden of Midway Hills, an Earth-Kind® Water/Wise Demonstration Garden is a collaboration of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, the Dallas County Master Gardeners, and MHCC.
The offers residents of Dallas county a chance to see what grows well in Dallas’ climate, clay soil, and restricted water. The community will be able to view areas demonstrating vegetables, perennials, butterfly host and nectar plants, urban trees, wildlife habitat, compost, and low water use turf grass.
Classes on such topics as rain barrel installation, composting, heirloom bulbs, and vegetable gardening will be offered to residents at a low cost by master gardeners and gardening experts at the MHCC gardens.
Here the Master Gardeners will host preschoolers, schoolchildren, and at-risk kids for garden visits. Children can enjoy seeing what’s ready to harvest in the vegetable beds or understanding how kitchen scraps can turn into compost.
The Dallas County Master Gardeners are part of an educational volunteer program conducted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service of the Texas A&M University System. The Certified Master Gardeners receive 84 hours of horticulture training and contribute their time to provide horticultural information to their communities.
