The Community Impact Ministry equips and sends the people of Hill Country Bible Church to bless our community and saturate Greater Austin with the love of Jesus. As individuals grow in their walk with God, we develop and empower them to help lead our movement of changed lives that impacts Greater Austin for Christ.

We are excited to start our 2023 Tree of Lights. You will be able to grab a tag off of one of the specified lobby tree or you can chose one online starting on Sunday, November 26th until Sunday December 10th. These tags have gift wishes for specific ministries or children in our community in need. If you have any questions, suggestions, or want to help in a way you do not see listed-please contact Carla Robertson or at 512-750-9643.
Gift wishes will be posted November 26th on the Hill Country Bible Church Community Impact website, so please watch for this. This is a great opportunity for you to invite a friend to join in and serve our community. Thank you for being willing to serve God by serving others.
Saturday, December 9th
The Christmas Store serves families that are working people who simply cannot absorb the added expenses of the holiday season. Gifts, holiday meals, traveling to see relatives and friends, or even purchasing a Christmas tree can be an extravagance they simply can’t afford.
At the Store, families will be able to purchase new gifts for $1, $3, $5, and $10 ($20 for bicycles), taking the stress out of the holiday season.
We invite you to help by volunteering your time at the Christmas Store, donating toys, or making a financial contribution for toys.
Let’s bring JOY & HAPPINESS to those who need a little HOPE this Christmas!
