The third step in our church strategy (Look Out) challenges everyone at The Fellowship to answer God’s call the same way the prophet Isaiah did, “Here I am, send me.” It’s a call to get on board and embrace this truth: taking the gospel to the nations is not optional. We understand every person is not able to get on a plane and go around the world for a week “doing missions.” But we’re not commanded to fly around the world to spread the gospel – we’re called to feed the poor, help the helpless, give hope to those who have none, use our blessings and gifts to alleviate suffering, and make disciples by spreading a gospel of love and forgiveness in the name of Jesus. We can do all these things daily and locally, as well as in other countries.

The Backpack Coalition
Hunger is a problem in our backyard. It is affecting the children at our local schools. Teachers observe children returning to school on Monday hungry from the weekend. The Backpack Coalition is a group of organizations that have come together to address the issue of weekend food deficiencies for elementary aged children in Round Rock. Students who are identified as nutritionally unstable are privately nominated by teachers or school staff. They are then provided a bag of nutritious foods and juices to put in their backpack to carry home on Fridays to help bridge the gap until Monday morning.
