The Great Commission, given by Jesus just before He ascended into Heaven, is this: “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:18b-20, NIV). Following Jesus’ command and example, we seek to reach the city of Austin, the nation, and the world with the Gospel.
Jesus [said], “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’” (Matthew 22:37-39, NIV).
A thousand thanks for your generous contributions to our two Mission Possible food drives across the past several months. Serving Mission Possible is a great way to make a real difference in the lives of people right here in Austin. As you know, this has been a difficult winter for many of the lower-income families in central Texas. Across April and May, we are holding another drive for Mission Possible. Contact Garland at [email protected] for more information!
Church Under the Bridge (CUB), coordinated through our ministry partner Mission Possible, is a combined effort of the body of Christ throughout the Austin area. At CUB, those who attend will have the opportunity to be a part of worship, which includes live music, prayer, fellowship and a down-to-earth Gospel message. While many of those who attend are homeless, Church Under the Bridge is a place for all to come and worship God.
On Sunday, May 30th, we have the opportunity to join together with other churches at CUB to serve the community there. Our regular services will not meet, so that all members who would like to join us Under the Bridge can come. More details coming soon!
