The Missions Ministry of FBCgT is organized based on Acts 1:8:

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my
witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.

 

Souper Bowl of Caring

FBCGT’s churchwide mission project in February is to collect food and personal items that will go to replenish the food pantries at The Caring Place and Hill Country Community Ministries, two of our community partners. Bring your items Sunday, February 7, for our BIG push on Souper Sunday and help us build a mountain of food in the church foyer. Donations will also be accepted throughout the month of February, and can be dropped off in the Atrium. Watch the mountain of food grow during February as it will be displayed in the Atrium. Contact Charlsie Wilkins at 512.869.2586 or cwilkins@fbcgt.org if you have questions. Click here for a list of items to be collected.
