"Be The Church" – Day of Service

Sunday, JUN 5  |  Fellowship Hall & Off-campus

We would love for you to join us for a day of service. We will be serving food, playing with the kids and celebrating in our various neighborhoods, caring for the homeless, participating in light construction and landscaping projects, and collecting items in support of some of our partner ministries.

Activities Include:

We’ll have two different trucks going out after church around 12:00PM to serve food and clothing to the homeless around the city.  You can volunteer to make 200 – 300 sandwiches beforehand (10:00AM), or to go out on the truck runs themselves.

We’ll have a truck parked in the parking lot near the Fellowship Hall entrance, and you can drop off used furniture and furnishings that will be donated to the Austin Disaster Relief Network’s (ADRN) warehouse.  They use these items to help people who’ve lost homes due to floods, fires, and other disasters. 

List of items needed:

  • Furniture: Couches, recliners, big easy chairs, coffee tables, end tables, bookshelves, bed frames, headboards and footboards, kitchen tables, chairs, benches, outdoor furniture, chest of drawers, floor lamps, table lamps, framed art, home decor.  We can only take mattresses that are in near perfect condition.
  • Household Kitchen: Pots and pans and kitchenware, complete sets of dishes, complete sets of silverware, small appliances in good condition like toasters, can openers, bread makers, food processors, blenders, juicers, microwaves, toaster ovens.  
  • Linens: Sheet sets (King, Queen, full and twin), towels in good condition, (Bath towels, hand towels,washcloths, kitchen towels) bedspreads, comforters, cotton blankets. Brand new bed pillows are always in need especially when survivors come through the store.

We currently have an over abundance of most everything else including clothes, shoes, books, toys and jewelry.  We never want to say we are not accepting something but we would certainly like to emphasize the other items that I have listed.  

  • Rundberg Family Festival

We’re partnering with Nuevo Amanecer (New Dawn) Church off Northgate to host a neighborhood party – complete with inflatable bounce houses for the kids, grilling food and serving drinks for everyone, live music, and more.  This is a chance to practice your Spanish if you speak it, play with kids, help serve and more.

  • Travis Heights Food Pantry Event

We have been working with a growing, dynamic body of faith in South Austin that is in the process of securing a permanent location for their church and food pantry.  The details and needs for this new site are being worked out, and we will have new information soon.  We would love for you to participate and expect to do some clean up in and around the building, possibly some painting or very light construction/renovation.  This ministry is exciting, fun and is providing resources to underserved working families in South Austin.  God is blessing our efforts, so join us for a fun day to bless the efforts of our new partner church.  Once we know specific needs, we’ll let you know what you can bring/provide.
