Help provide a backpack full of school supplies for an under-resrourced student right here in Austin!
On Sunday, July 21 and July 28, we will hand out backpacks after each service at all of our venues. We're asking you to pick up a backpack for $20 as you leave service. Inside the backpack, you will find a shopping list with school supplies needed for the specific age range, elementary or middle/high school students. Go shopping, fill the backpack with the requested supplies, have fun, and then return the backpack to your campus on either Sunday, July 28 or August 4.
These backpacks will then be distributed all around our city, through our local ministry partners, school counselors, youth programs, and churches in under-resourced communities.
Feeding families in our city for the Thanksgiving holiday!
Over the last number of years, Ridge Missions has engaged the entire Austin Ridge family to help provide meals to underserved families in our city on Thanksgiving. This year we're handing out 1,200 boxes with shopping lists on Sunday, November 3. We're asking our Austin Ridge family to pick up a box on the first Sunday of November, purchase all of the non-perishable items on the shopping lists, decorate your box, write a note of encouragement to the family that will receive your box, and then return the box on Sunday, November 10 or November 17.
Project Mobilepack, our largest church-wide serve event with a need for 1,500 volunteers to make this event happen. This is a perfect opportunity to serve with your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and LifeGroup. To learn more about FMSC MobilePack events, please visit Feed My Starving Children.
At this event, our volunteers will experience a one-of-a-kind serve opportunity. You’ll hand-pack rice, soy, dried vegetables and a nutritionally complete blend of vitamins and minerals into bags which are then sealed, boxed, placed on pallets and shipped to our incredible partners working hard to reach the neediest children around the world. Stay tuned for our next MobilePack event in Spring 2020!
We need many hands and feet of Jesus to support these projects. If you're interested in serving with us during our next campus project, please email fill out our volunteer interest form here. Thanks for serving alongside us!
