Addressing poverty is a complex and ongoing process. Our desire is to get involved in initiatives that promote long-term solutions to poverty.

We partner with Central Texas Food Bank through our food pantry to provide food for the many children and families who face hunger in our local community. Our Community Assistance and Referral Ministry provides utility and rent assistance to the community for financial emergencies. We also advocate for change by using our collective voice to raise awareness about poverty-related issues,  participating in campaigns, and engaging through community events.
