Bags of Grace
Bags of Grace is a ministry focused on serving the homeless in the Austin. This ministry is for everyone (from kids to seniors). Bags of necessities are prepared that include food, water, and hygiene products. These bags are then subsequently distributed to the homeless in and around Austin. For example, the bags can be prepared on a Saturday afternoon at the HCBC campus. The following day the bags can then be distributed at Church Under the Bridge under an overpass of I-35 near downtown Austin.
All of us want to help when we know there is a need, but many people are reluctant to hand money to someone with a sign on a street corner. A Bag of Grace provides basic but valuable items to those on the street, who are truly in need. A Bag of Grace, however, is more than just a meal. It's a chance to connect with another person, even if just for a moment. It's a chance to let those in need and/or homeless know that they are not forgotten or thrown away.
