Community Impact

One of our deepest passions is impacting others in our community with the love of Jesus Christ. Through our Community Impact ministries, we mobilize and equip the people of Hill Country to make a difference in the lives of those around us, serving them in a variety of ways.

Happening Now

Along with our ongoing ministries, we have some exciting initiatives right now. Be sure to also check out our calendar of events to the right of this page.

  • Dec. 1, Dec. 8 - Visit one of the Lobby Christmas trees to select your tag – *This year because of the way the calendar falls, MANY of the gifts need to be back by 12/8, so please select a tag on the 1st Sunday if you are able.
