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.
Three Key Volunteer Initiatives
Impacting Others during COVID-19
COVID-19 Response & Assistance
During this time of unprecedented impact by the pandemic virus outbreak, many are asking how they can be used to assist those most affected or at risk. Here are a few ways we recommend for your prayerful consideration:
- Be in prayer for God to move in a significant way to use you and this outbreak to bring others to Himself and for His protection and provision.
- Check with your neighbors to see if they have any needed assistance you can provide. This is a great way to bless them!
- Volunteer to drive a senior to medical visits, grocery assistance or other needs. For years we have provided this service through our affiliate, Faith in Action Drive a Senior Northwest. You can volunteer here.
- Volunteer or receive assistance from our food pantry and clothes closet. Reveal Resource Center serves the greater Austin area, including all of our campuses. We are especially in need of some strong men and women to assist with our Monday morning setup. You can get more information and connect here.
- In addition to Reveal, we also have Hill Country Community Ministries that serves our Crystal Falls area. For more infomation, visit their website.
- We are also partnering with Austin Reconciliation Church to provide volunteers for their food distribution on Wednesdays. If you're interested in volunteering, please reach out to our Men's Pastor Nate Echelberger at [email protected]
- Reveal and ARC have been able to provide food for over 500 families weekly!
- Due to the economic downturn and loss of income for many in our family, they will most likely need assistance through our Hope Benevolence Ministry. We are also doing additional outreach to help First Responders, Healthcare Workers, and Distribution Centers during this time. If you would like to give to assist in these, and give beyond your regular giving, you may make a donation online to our Benevolence or Community Outreach funds here.
COVID-19 Small Business & Job Seeker Response
If you are a small business owner, leader of a non-profit, or independent contractor, we'd love to connect with you! Join our Facebook page for useful resources, connections, and to be in community with others who are in similar situations during this time. You can find our page here.
Job Seekers Network has expanded its services and offerings during this covid-19 time. To keep up to date on their Monday meetings and other seminars, visit their website here.
COVID Rangers Masks
We are joining forces with the COVID Rangers to provide local hospitals and other agencies with masks and mask covers for their staff as they serve to protect our community. To date we've had over 100 volunteers make 2,500 masks for our frontline workers! If you'd like to be a part of the Covid Rangers, you can assist through a number of ways:
- Donating materials and supplies - tight weave cotton/poly blend (fun colors), 1/4" herringbone tape or bias tape, floral or light weight wire for nose strips
- Cutting out material from patterns
- Sewing mask covers
Signup here to be a part of the Hill Country arm of the COVID Rangers. Once you submit your information, you will receive an email with information on how to move forward.
