Church Without Walls WF meets at 4:00 pm the last Sunday of every month at the Farmer’s Market in Wichita Falls, Texas. The next meeting is Sunday, September 29, 2019.
Who are we? We are a group of people from different backgrounds and churches, but the most important thing about us is our PASSION for the underserved, poor and homeless of Wichita Falls. We offer a once a month church service for our friends. This is their church. They are welcomed and loved during our service. We have a worship time with music, a teaching time (spiritual food) and a meal (physical food). We are out on the streets during the time we don’t have church checking on the welfare of our friends.
How can I help?
Every little bit helps. A meal prepared and served by volunteers is provided before each service. We collect coats, socks, gloves, blankets, clothing, toiletries, and whatever we can to meet the overwhelming needs of the homeless in our community.

We celebrate and worship once a month in a loving environment where everyone is welcome. We do what we can throughout the year to meet the needs of individuals and families in our community, especially those who are going through difficult times.
Some people say…”you just meet once a month.” That is true we have corporate worship just once a month. However, we are out there helping people. Here are some of the things we have done to help others:
assistance with birth certificate copies
assistance with rent, electric, gas, and water deposits
bicycles for those in need
cokes and food for movie night
helping friends acquire housing and getting them set up in their new places
insurance, gas on van and trailer
local and long distance bus passes

April 7, 2018: UPDATE: You guys rock!!!!!! You all provided this individual with a bed, love seat and a table and four chairs. The client is still in need of a broom, trash can, tv, Swifferjet, a comforter for the new bed and a vacuum. We need pots and pans, cups and glasses. The client could not believe the outpouring….I thank you each of you with all my heart!!!!!
We have an individual that is in desperate need of household items: dishes, pots and pans, sheets, blankets, towels, small love seat/couch, small dining table and a chair or two. Just think if you had nothing…what would you need? Please, please, only gently used or new items. Thank you so much! Candi
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ 41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’ 44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ 45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
