Keys to the Messianic Kingdom


The Hebrew heritage of the Christian faith is rich and extensive. Discover the relationship we have with the land, the people and the scriptures of Israel.

* How the Bible works together to paint a beautiful picture of redemption in Messiah
* How Jesus/Yeshua closely identified with the land, people and scriptures of Israel
* How Paul's understanding and application of scripture stood against legalism
* How the biblical holidays/feasts paint a picture of our salvation
* How we are one new man, united uniquely in Jesus/Yeshua
* How understanding the scriptures of Israel deepens our understanding of Yeshua's teachings

The families in our group (Kehilat Ha Derech) live in the McKinney Allen Murphy - Bonham area. We meet weekly on Shabbat at Lake Lavon.

Randall and Debra Hand facilitate the meetings. Please contact us if you are interested or have questions.

Kehilat Ha Derech

-  - Assembly of the Way!

Kehilat Ha Derech is a congregation built upon a family-centered community of  believers in Messiah who are "fellow citizens" (Ephesians 2:19) together in the "commonwealth of Israel," (Ephesians 2:12) "brought near by the blood of Messiah" (Ephesians 2:13).

We believe the Scriptures are true and relevant to people today and that Yeshua HaMashiach is the Messiah of Israel.   We assemble for worship, praise, prayer and teaching at Lake Lavon Texas on Shabbat. Please contact us for details.


Generally, the meeting begins at 3:00 p.m. in the winter (4 p.m. during daylight savings times), with prayer, praise and worship, dance, teaching, discussions, and a fellowship meal together until around 8 p.m. or so.

In general, we study the weekly Torah portion (one year cycle), along with periodic study materials, such as the Life Study course "The 49 Commands of Christ" from the Institute of Basic Life Principles.

Our group began in 2002 from a dedicated prayer group. We met at the old Murphy City Hall and Community center under the name Murphy Community Fellowship through May 2005. After the city closed the facility, we continued to meet in our homes. We changed the name in 2007 to more accurately reflect our heritage.

We are not formally associated with Kehilat Ha Derech in Karmiel, Israel, except in the spirit.
